Bryant’s UKIP Bashing Comes Back to Bite Him

Welsh Labour MPs stuck the knife into Plaid’s Leanne Wood last night after she relied on UKIP votes to challenge Carwyn Jones for First Minister. Chris Bryant led the attack, arguing Labour shouldn’t form a government if they relied on UKIP to win:

“I’d only be interested in forming a progressive government. If I’d to rely on Tories/UKIP to win, I’d say no thanks”

Owen Smith and Nia Griffiths piled in too. Which makes the news that UKIP Assembly Members Nathan Gill and Mark Reckless are considering backing Jones for FM very awkward indeed. Those two UKIP votes could keep Labour’s FM in his job and defeat the Plaid insurgency. Yet Labour MPs have publicly said they don’t want UKIP votes. Bryant has suddenly gone very uncharacteristically quiet…
