Nazi reference prompts presiding officer to warn AMs

AMs should not compare current domestic political events with Nazi-era Germany, the presiding officer has ruled.

Presiding Officer Elin Jones warned such comments risked "trivialising the horrors perpetrated by the regime".

It follows a complaint from Welsh Tory leader Andrew RT Davies about "aggressive" language on Brexit.

Labour AM Dawn Bowden said she stood by what she said in a debate in February when she referred to "Goebbels-like propaganda from the right-wing media".
