'Fed up of Labour'

Plaid Cymru candidate Mair Rowlands says the shock vote for a Conservative MP (ousting Labour's Chris Ruane last year) has changed the political landscape in the Vale of Clwyd this year.

"People are fed up of Labour and have had 17 years of Labour here. This constituency will be very close between the main parties and I have been pleasantly surprised by how many people see Plaid as an alternative to Labour and I think we will get a lot of second votes in the regional ballot."

Constituency Profile

The Vale of Clwyd is a tract of low-lying ground in the county of Denbighshire in northeast Wales.

At its seaward end are the coastal resorts of Rhyl and Prestatyn whilst the town of St Asaph lies just inland. Employment along the coast is mainly seasonal and the western half of Rhyl is one of the most deprived wards in Wales. But 5.4% of people were unemployed between October 2014 and September 2015, compared to the UK average of 5.5% for the same period. 14% of people living in the area during the same period were retired, the same as the average for Great Britain.

Some 10,000 people work in the public sector. Ann Jones has held the seat since the first elections for the National Assembly for Wales in 1999. In 2011 Labour won 50.7% of the vote, the Conservatives had 33%, Plaid Cymru 11% and the Liberal Democrats 4%.
