Carwyn Jones quotes

May 17 2017

I worked closely with him as secretary of state for Wales to agree the basis for the full law-making powers the assembly now has. He was Welsh through and through and a repository of fascinating facts on everything under the sun. A towering figure in every sense whom we will all miss.feedback

May 05 2017 - British elections 2017

Welsh Labour candidates and activists can be incredibly proud of themselves today – they fought another tough election, and once again defied the odds. The Tories had been briefing that they'd be walking into power right across Wales – that simply has not happened. We must now re-focus and fight a general election campaign the same way we always fight elections – with our own Welsh Labour values, huge amounts of hard work and an absolute commitment to stand up for our communities against the Tories.feedback

I'm not going to pretend things are easy. We've a mountain to climb but mountains are there to be climbed. When the going is tough you get down to it and work hard. That mountain will have to be climbed – otherwise it's austerity for ever and a day, more and more cuts, less money for the NHS, less money for education. It's hugely important that we don't allow the Tories to walk all over us. If they think they are in a strong position they will try to run all over the Celtic nations and impose their own brand of nationalism on the rest of us.feedback

Apr 24 2017 - Terrorism

One of the things you have to do in leadership is give a straight answer. Otherwise people will interpret your answer in many different ways. My answer is quite simply, yes, we do replace Trident. It's hugely important as a party that you are able to convince people you are going to keep them secure. Trident is a deterrent. It doesn't keep us secure against terrorism. That's why it's so important that we need to bolster our armed forces to meet the immediate threat that exists in Europe at the moment.feedback

It is clear Jeremy has work to do to convince people he is a leader. He knows that and over the next few weeks he has to show people he is a good candidate for prime minister. From the public's perspective they haven't seen his best side yet. I've gone round with Jeremy on the doorstep; I've gone round town centres with him. He's not someone that puts people off when they meet him. Far from it. It's the exact opposite. I think he just needs to do more of that, going around, meeting people, listening and I think people will be impressed by what they hear.feedback

Mar 19 2017 - London

If they are not careful, people's sense of disengagement with Brussels will simply attach itself to London. They are giving the impression sometimes that they do not listen. We are going to end up in court on that unless we can sort this out. Our devolution settlement says agriculture is devolved, full stop. We are never going to accept Brussels is replaced by London. Their heads are not around this yet.feedback

Mar 19 2017

There was as much frustration on the doorstep about the UK government as about the EU [during the referendum]. At the end of the day, it's not as if Westminster and Whitehall were fantastically popular.feedback

Oct 25 2016

A hard Brexit would be a disaster. There's no getting around that.feedback

Oct 24 2016

It was difficult for the devolved administrations to influence the process when there was so much uncertainty over what the government was seeking.feedback

Oct 24 2016

If UK Gov can't negotiate position with devolved nations little hope of negotiating a good Brexit deal with 27 countries.feedback
