NHS Policy Suggestions

As the Welsh NHS struggles to meet the demands of a growing and ageing population, it has become clear that no single political party has been able to effectively address the challenges facing our public health service. From staffing shortages to funding constraints, the Welsh NHS is facing a range of issues that are putting patients at risk and undermining the ability of the service to provide high-quality care.

SAVE CASH - Use it or Lose it

USE IT OR LOSE IT... SUPPORT CASH, SUPPORT PROPEL. As society continues to advance, the concept of a cashless society is gaining traction. Most people now pay with telephones or cards. More and more businesses refuse cash nowadays. While the idea of a world where physical money no longer exists may seem convenient and efficient, it also raises huge concerns about the loss of privacy and ultimately control over our own spending habits.

The Rotten Heart of Welsh Politics

THE ROTTEN HEART OF WELSH POLITICS   In May 2016, I made the mistake of thinking that as a Plaid Cymru Politician, I had been elected to hold the Government to account and to be an opposition politician. I quickly found out that my job was to not rock the boat, not to expose scandals, but to toe the line.  Plaid Cymru was furious when I asked questions about Deryn’s client ACT obtaining £113 million from the Welsh Government.  https://www.walesonline.co.uk/news/politics/ofcom-wales-under-fire-after-12649696 Continue reading

Propel Fights to Save Green Spaces

Propel stands in solidarity with communities all across Wales who are fighting tooth and nail with local authorities over the preservation of their communal green spaces. All too often we are seeing the pleas and petitions of welsh citizens amount to nothing, and community voice bulldozed over. Propel has pledged to enshrine 'The Planning for Wales Act' which a Propel Government would Reform Local Development Plans, give protection of green fields and spaces, and introduce a right of appeal for residents against disputed developments.

The Growing for Wales Act

Propel has pledged to enshrine 'The Growing for Wales Act' which a Propel Government would legalise the medicinal use of cannabis and cannabinoids through the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG), with all cannabis-based medicines grown and produced in Wales. The reported medicinal benefits of CBD compounds are too numerous to name, but could make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of many. Propel would also champion for an industry right here in Wales and give farmers a chance to cash in on this crop through the production of CBD oils and derivatives such as hemp fibres. We believe Wales should not be reliant on big pharma and foreign corporations who ultimately dominate our markets. Let's make this a truly Made in Wales industry that we can be proud of.

Propel Leads Fight To Re-Open Recycling Centre

Cardiff Propel Councillors are leading the fight to re-open the Council Recycling Centre in the Fairwater area of Cardiff. The Propel Group put an amendment to Cardiff Council  to re-open the former recycling centre at Waungron Road. The Propel Group also supported a no confidence motion in Cardiff’s bungling Labour Council cabinet over the chaos around waste collection across the city. The Waungron Rd site was controversially shut in 2014 and has cost the Council nearly £1 million since to keep closed. In a local referendum, a massive 1869 Fairwater residents voted to re-open the Centre, with just 4 wanting it to remain closed.       Continue reading
