THE Government's legislative programme was set out in the Queen's Speech.

It offered little for economic growth and nothing for the increasing numbers of unemployed and households with real cost of living issues.

So lacklustre was the programme that the news of Sir Alex Ferguson's retirement eclipsed it.

It demonstrates this government has run out of steam with two years to go in this parliament.

Divisions within the Tory Party and the coalition government show David Cameron to be a weak leader. We need a firm government and direction.

The follow on from the inconclusive council election results continued.

I respect the verdict of the people of Anglesey which gave the Independents the most seats and they formed a single Group.

Plaid Cymru got its core vote out and others, including Labour, did not.

Both Plaid Cymru and the Independents have led the council in the recent years prior to the commissioners being brought in.

Given these facts it was logical for the new Labour Group to seek a partnership with the largest group to seek a majority administration to take Anglesey forward.

Given the numbers no other correlation offers this position.

I will work positively with the new administration on behalf of the island's residents and the focus should be on jobs and services. 

In the constituency I held surgeries and attend meetings in Llangefni, Holyhead and Menai Bridge that included a school  grow and sell project with Waitrose.
