Do Councillors get a lot of criticism & does it put you off standing? Don't listen to any criticism if it's from people you wouldn't take life advice from. If you've got principles, want to stand up for those principles & represent people who share those principles. Have a go.

Rishi Sunak reacts angrily to claims that heโ€™s out of touch with working class voters, and that some of his closest friends are scraping by with barely ยฃ20 million to their name.

โšก๏ธAzovstal bombing may put Azov Sea on the brink of extinction. According to Mariupol City Council, Russiaโ€™s bombing of the plant could severely damage its facilities for storing hazardous chemicals. Their leakage could kill all marine life in the sea. ๐Ÿ“ท Mariupol City Council

Watch this refusal by Minister to answer me on why flights are cheap & trains so expensive - not helped by patronising substitute Tory Cttee Chair shushing me when I dare to do my job holding Govt to account Share if you think we need answers, not obfuscation from the boys ๐Ÿ’ช

The Met Police has concluded its partygate investigation. James O'Brien responds with this monumental takedown of Boris Johnson's 'barefaced lies'. @mrjamesob

Boris Johnson says "we are helping with the cost of living in any way we can". Strange. Last night - not one Tory MP voted for a windfall tax on oil and gas giants.

Rather than the ยฃ5bn funding Wales is entitled to from HS2, we're getting 'Great British Railways' The Tories' solution to the economy is to stick a Union Jack on it Nostalgia does not an economy make - @LSRPlaid

On tourism: โ€˜Pepole do like to vistist palaces and castles, weโ€™ve got tons of castles in Walesโ€ฆ but theyโ€™re not occupied by feudal lords any more. This idea that tourism will disappear if the [English] royals did is just bizarre.โ€™ ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

If you work in a shop at ยฃ9.55 per hour, worked 37hrs per week with no time off all year. You'll earn around ยฃ18,374.20 a year. It'll take you 4,675 years, with no time off, to earn what the Queen was paid via our taxes (Sovereign Grant ยฃ85.9m) last year alone. Is that fair?

'Enjoying' many a conversation about the union jack madness in shops all over Wales. Mixing business & politics is always tricky but cheering on a neighbouring country's v rich family in a time of hyper-austerity is just wrong. Have a think before displaying the butcher's apron.

The Monarchy's existence relies on people not thinking about it, just unquestioning subservience. How can you justify the monarchy in the 21st century when millions struggle day to day? Part 1

Yesterday the English Queen opened the London Cross-rail. It went ยฃ4 billion OVER budget. Welsh taxpayers contributed to this London based project which has zero benefits to Wales - similar to HS2. We pay taxes in Wales for vanity projects in England as our services suffer.

Take the jubilee Bank Holidays if you can, even if you don't support it, workers don't get many perks as it is. The tourism argument is a myth. Part 2.
