Josh James, Chair of Welsh Labour Students, welcomed us to Cardiff for #LSCouncil16 at the end of December with the following speech:
Annywl Pawb, croeso yr Gymru ac croeso yr Caerdydd.
To you all, welcome to Wales, and welcome to Cardiff.
When we think of the Labour Party’s heartlands, we often think of the great cities of Northern England, or the progressive boroughs of London. But in fact the Labour Party was born in places like this in South Wales, before Cardiff was even a city, a connection between Labour and Wales that dates back to the very start of our movement.
