29/01/19: Western Mail Country & Farming Column: Leaving the EU will entrench Wales' unequal status
Research published last week shows that the worst inequality in Europe is between London and Wales - and leaving the European Union will make our situation worse. Inner London's GDP is 614% of the EU average, while west Wales and the Valleys has a GDP of 68% of the same EU average.......... More.

24/01/19: Leaving the EU will devastate regional development, Jill Evans MEP
The worst regional inequality in Europe is between London and Wales, new research has found. The research from the Conference of Peripheral Maritime Regions (CPMR) also found that the UK would be entitled to €13 billion (in excess of £11 billion) of regional development funding for the 2021-2027 cycle. This funding is given to poorer regions in an attempt to boost their economic performance and development. The current funding cycle runs from 2014-2020, during which time Wales is expected to have received £2.06 billion in support from the EU. Based on the CPMR’s research Wales would miss out on around £2.5 billion over the next cycle which runs from 2021-2027. ........... More.

Last week, Plaid Cymru leader, Adam Price, was in Dublin to call for true political partnership between Wales and Ireland which he described as a Celtic political union.

The huge problem caused by plastic waste has really come home to everyone this year. Children and young people in particular are very aware of the damage that is being done to the planet. So let’s use Christmas as an opportunity to do our own bit towards reducing that waste. I always try to avoid plastic packaging but it can be difficult, especially when buying toys, which are often completely encased in it and very difficult to open! I am going to make a conscious effort to try and have a plastic free Christmas............... More.

There is only one possible subject I can write on this week! The Prime Minister managed to get the EU Withdrawal Agreement through the Cabinet last week which triggered yet more chaos and uncertainty. There is only one sensible way forward now and that is a People’s Vote, with the option of staying in the European Union.............. More.

Like most children at that time, I looked forward to Friday evenings and our family visit to the library. I could wander around the bookshelves for hours. I treasured my library cards and I have never lost that love of reading. There was similar anticipation when the weekly mobile library van came around, especially for older people who weren’t able to travel to the library............... More.

06/10/18: Speech to Plaid Cymru Annual Conference, Cardigan
