Senior Welsh Minister Sacked Over Smear Emails
Read Bombshell Emails That Exposed Labour ‘Cabinet’ Member

The one party state of Wales has sacked one of its most senior cabinet members, condemning his “unacceptable” behaviour. Environment minister Alun Davies ordered non-partisan civil servants to use taxpayer-funded resources to dig up dirt on his political opponents. In emails produced here by Guido, Davies told his private secretary to send him details of payments made to the leader of the Welsh Conservatives, leader of the Welsh LibDems and a senior Plaid Cymru politician, in breach of the ministerial code:

The civil servant then emailed the, hilariously titled, ‘Welsh Cabinet Secretary’ to raise concerns that Davies’ request was “for party-political purposes” and that “I do not think it is appropriate”. He goes on to report that despite advising Davies that he was not allowed to release the information, “he has now requested this information verbally again”.

The Welsh First Minister Carwyn Jones said Davies’ actions were “poorly judged” and “inappropriate”. And he’s just been fired.

    No sweat for Burnham…he’s got the useless bandwagon jumper Miliband for a boss.

    Miliband who has yet to be challenged on why he appointed the twat as Shadow Health Minister, given his performance at Stafford and Miliband who has allowed Burnham’s office to say that the Stafford figures were made up – no one died there.

    Too right Wales is a one-Party State. Despite Labour running Wales since 1999, and Labour running the UK between 1999 and 2010, Wales has slipped down the standards indexes for economic development (got poorer despite a couple of billion in EU aid unlike the overwhelming majority of other EU regions that got similar aid), health care, education and infrastructure. However, we can be told, in Welsh if we request, that our operation has been cancelled or that our Council tax is going up by well over inflation every year (in Labour council areas). Power to the workers! Unfortunately, the only work in Wales now that has future is in the public sector.

    John Davies says:

    Last week, Alun Davies narrowly avoided being fired after breaching the ministerial code for lobbying the Welsh equivalent of the Environment Agency (for which he as Minister is responsible) for a planning application within his constituency to be approved.

    A debate was tabled last week by ALL opposition parties on the decision not to sack him and it was accepted for debate tomorrow in the chamber. He’s now been sacked for a completely different reason a day before that debate.

    Labour in Wales are a complete shambles.

    Both forms are correct, but Davies’ is probably more appropriate…you wouldn’t, in speech, say Davies-es.

    If he was called Davis, however, Davis’s (Davis-es) would be OK and preferable in speech to Davis’ – which, though, would also be acceptable.

    Trafficking across Europe is a major problem – G’ermany would prefer to see it shut down as it does require transit across their territory. The central hub remains as ever: H’olland

    R’ussian SVR are very active in H’olland.

    The reasons for the existence of that particular ‘trade’ should perhaps be questioned more closely.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
