Commenting on the passing of former First Minister Rhodri Morgan Mark Williams said;
“Rhodri Morgan will be remembered for leading Wales in those early years, putting Welsh politics on an even footing. In what was a difficult early period for devolution, Rhodri built a coalition to deliver on the promise of devolution.
“He will be remembered as an extremely charismatic and engaging leader, and the kind words we have heard from so many today show the enormous respect and admiration for Rhodri. 
“Rhodri will be hugely missed and my thoughts are with family and friends at this difficult time.”


Can YOU Help?

… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the West Wales Chronicle than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. The West Wales Chronicle’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Chronicle – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
