Welsh Tory reshuffle victim Mohammad Asghar says 'That's politics'

The leader of the Welsh Conservatives, Andrew RT Davies, has sacked four members of his front bench team for rebelling against him in a vote on the devolution of income tax.

Nick Ramsay, Antoinette Sandbach, Mohammad Asghar and Janet Finch-Saunders lost their positions.

Mr Davies is critical of the model of income tax powers in the process of being devolved from Westminster.

The four AMs failed to vote in a Senedd motion criticising the model.

Mr Asghar said he was "disappointed, and a bit surprised" adding: "This is politics."

He said: "Definitely there are a few people that don't agree with each other but I'm sure we can thrash things out."
