Daily: WALES vs. COVID – How clean are my valleys?

Is Wales really setting the COVID agenda for the rest of the UK? As the “firebreak” comes down, former special advisor to First Minister Mark Drakeford turned political consultant Cathy Owens talks to Jude Rogers. Is Wales responding better to lockdowns than England? What is the pandemic doing to support for Welsh nationalism? And why it’s not all about trying to keep English tourists out.

Audio note: Includes sound effects live from Cardiff!

  • “We don’t want Boris and his chums to be in charge of Wales.”
  • “Wales leading Westminster? That’s the opposite of what we see happening here.”
  • “People in Wales voted for Ukip just like the English. We do get the Daily Mail here…”
