Theresa May set to launch Welsh Conservative manifesto ‘In Wrexham Area’ this Morning
Prime Minister Theresa May is set to launch the Welsh Conservative manifesto “somewhere” in the Wrexham area this morning according to our sister site Wrexham.com
Recent Wales barometer polls combined with crumbling UKIP support have buoyed Tory hopes of winning several north east Wales seats at next month’s general election with Wrexham, Delyn and Alyn and Deeside all seen as targets.
During the 2015 election campaign, David Cameron swerved north east Wales as it was felt none of the seats were remotely winnable.
Two years on and with the majority of voters in the region having backed Brexit, the Conservative party are in confident mood, pundits believe they can win nine more seats across Wales, which would give the party 20 out of the 40 seats available making it the largest party.
In a speech today Mrs May will tell a selected Wrexham audience “the Labour Party has taken people of Wales for granted.”
The Prime Minister will say;

I’m backing those that want a more secure and full life. I’m backing those whose only wish is that their children will do better than themselves.
And to those that look to their government and their politicians for a little help and support, I’m backing you too.
Because too often in the past, ordinary working people have found the help and support they need just isn’t there.
And I know that sense of disenchantment is particularly acute here in Wales.
We saw that when people here in Wrexham and across Wales chose to ignore the hysterical warnings of Labour, Plaid Cymru and Liberal Democrat politicians in Cardiff Bay, and voted to leave the EU.
We see it now in the way those same politicians refuse to respect that vote as they try to find new ways to put obstacles in our way.
And the cause of that emerging gulf is clear. It is because the Labour Party has taken people in Wales for granted for decades – just as it has in other communities across Britain.
