Chris Elmore, MP for Ogmore, has slammed the Conservative government on the U-turn over Swansea electrification. In a speech made in Parliament, the MP said that the Government have failed the people of South Wales. The condemnation occurred when earlier in the day the Conservative government announced that Swansea would no longer be getting electrification, despite stating otherwise on numerous occasions.
The move comes as yet another flip-flop emerges from Theresa May’s government including on increase on National Insurance payments for the self-employed, a cap on the Dementia Tax and even the decision to have the general election itself.
Mr Elmore said: “It’s an absolute insult. We’ve been told time and time again form the Government that electrification to Swansea would happen. When it comes to down to it, they’ve lied to us. It’s disgraceful.”
