Welsh Labour have confirmed they are ‘in discussions’ with the new mega-Independent group and are looking to them for ‘courage’ to form an alliance.

As we reported earlier the new merged Independent Group is looking likely to either form an alliance with Labour or the Conservatives to gain a working majority to run Wrexham Council.

Today Dana Davies, Labour Group Leader, told us, “If Independent councillors have been able to reconcile their differences to take forward a new and ambitious agenda then it is to be welcomed”

“However, if it’s merely a marriage of convenience, designed just to keep power and positions and with no other purpose, then I’m afraid the public will rightly be disappointed.”

“The test will be whether they want to go into another coalition with stale Tories, or form a new partnership with the Labour Group based on cleaning up Wrexham politics and delivering better services.”

“Change takes courage and we are in discussions with Independents to deliver a courageous and ambitious agenda for change.”

It is understood that talks are ongoing today and a decision which way the Independent Group may go could emerge as early as inside the next 48 hours.
