Just weeks after taking office, Carwyn Jones outlined a bold philosophy for government - describing education and skills as the key to Wales' success, and promising to strengthen the Welsh education system. Fast forward seven years, and it's clear that it hasn't gone to plan.

Conservatives have always backed those who want to get on in life, roll up their sleeves and do a hard day's work. We always have and we always will. That's why I want Wales to lead the charge on being the first living wage country of the UK and I'm proud that it's Welsh Conservatives who are the ones doing it.

It goes without saying that Christmas is a hugely critical time of the year for Welsh high streets and the thousands of small businesses located within them. This is when all can expect to make over half their annual profits - essential to see them through quieter retail months...

Welsh Labour have labelled our calls for a Keogh-style Inquiry as "politically motivated." How can it be politically motivated to give patients and people the chance to have their say alongside those of our health professionals?

Be in no doubt - the decisions taken in Scotland will have profound implications on all of us. In Wales, we want you to stay. You help us give balance to our United Kingdom in culture, as much as in economics.

Last Friday, Ed Miliband walked down Queen Street in Cardiff with the Welsh First Minister, Carwyn Jones. He was in Wales to talk about the 'cost of living crisis' and on this occasion I agree with him. There is a 'cost of living crisis' in Wales brought about by Labour's 15-year rule in Wales.

It is a disservice to Bevan's creation and a public outrage to the people of Wales that Labour can be so complacent with our NHS. What compounds this arrogance is that Labour has clearly learnt absolutely nothing from the Mid-Staffordshire debacle.

In a year's time, the people of Scotland will go to the polls not only to decide their own destiny but to decide the route we all take as a united country. The United Kingdom for Wales is simply too important to dismiss.

n twenty years the Welsh high street will no longer exist. This is a statement which should send shivers up the spine of the Labour-led Welsh Government as well as communities across Wales. The high street is more than simply a collection of shops on the side of the road; it is the backbone of the local economy which extends into regional growth and national stability.
