The way forward in Wales

Kirsty Williams has responded to Carwyn Jones' decision for Labour to govern alone in Cardiff.  She has highlighted areas in which we would expect to see improvements over the performance of the One Wales coalition of the last four years. One thing Kirsty's short statement does not mention is the criticism of the waste and mismanagement of the Plaid-Labour administration which featured in the Liberal Democrat 2011 campaign. I am sure we can form common cause with the new leading opposition party, the Conservatives, over this, if nothing else.

And can we see an acceleration from glacial to at least snail's pace in bringing Wales up to 21st century broadband standards? At present, Cardiff, Swansea, Wrexham and Newport (never mind Neath) are all behind Bradford in terms of internet connection speeds.
