Commenting on the coup that took place this evening which saw Councillor Kevin Madge ousted as leader of Carmarthenshire County Council and leader of the Carmarthenshire Labour Party, Plaid Cymru Assembly Member Rhodri Gyn Thomas said:
“There have been numerous disagreements between Kevin Madge and I over the years, but one can never doubt his unwavering loyalty to the Labour Party and his Garnant constituents.
“I and my colleagues have always maintained that Kevin should have done the honourable thing and resigned his position after the Council’s unlawful pension payments scandal was exposed. It is curious, though, that those who then gave him a vote of confidence have now ousted him from office.
“The coup suggests Kevin Madge has been made the scapegoat for Labour’s disastrous performance across Carmarthenshire in last week’s general election. But the failings of Labour in Carmarthenshire are much deeper than any one individual who has worked tirelessly for his constituents for decades.”
