Conservative members of the Welsh Assembly voted to brand the UK government incompetent over its handling of the West Coast main line bidding process, according to the BBC website.
The Tories have since declared that the vote was a “genuine mistake” and it did not reflect their views.
The decision to award the rail franchise to FirstGroup was scrapped because of “technical flaws” in the bidding process.
After a debate yesterday (Wednesday), Labour, Plaid and Conservative AMs all voted to support a motion noting the franchise’s importance to north Wales and the “UK government’s incompetence”.
You have to laugh, don’t you?
This is one of the few things Welsh Conservatives have got right!
