All over Wales, people are putting their trust in Plaid Cymru.

0:00:120:00:17

They're standing up for their communities. And for their country.

0:00:170:00:21

Be under no illusion, we are living through uncertain times,

0:00:230:00:27

worrying times for many.

0:00:270:00:29

The Tories have become England's national party and they have

0:00:310:00:34

an unscrupulous focus on the protection of the south-east of England and the City of London.

0:00:340:00:39

Labour are utterly divided and are making promises even they know

0:00:420:00:45

they'll never be able to keep.

0:00:450:00:47

Next, they'll be promising free kittens to every voter.

0:00:470:00:51

We just can't trust either of them.

0:00:510:00:53

So far, since Brexit, we've heard more about Scotland, Gibraltar,

0:00:540:00:59

Northern Ireland and the City of London than we've heard about Wales.

0:00:590:01:03

It's outrageous. Wales deserves better. We deserve better.

0:01:030:01:08

Labour and the Tories in Westminster don't care about or

0:01:100:01:13

understand our valleys, our coastal communities, our cities,

0:01:130:01:17

our farms or our rural villages.

0:01:170:01:20

I do, you do, Plaid Cymru does.

0:01:200:01:25

We understand the unique circumstances and needs of

0:01:250:01:28

our communities and our nation.

0:01:280:01:30

We are solely focused on Wales and its success. And I know you are too.

0:01:300:01:35

There's not only one country but four countries in the UK.

0:01:370:01:40

Unfortunately, at the moment, only one country, England,

0:01:400:01:44

holds all the cards. But it doesn't have to be that way.

0:01:440:01:48

There are 533 MPs representing England.

0:01:480:01:52

Compare that to the 40 MPs who represent Wales

0:01:520:01:56

or the 59 in Scotland.

0:01:560:01:58

Wales can never form a government in London and nor do we need to.

0:01:580:02:02

This election is not about electoral majorities

0:02:040:02:06

or about forming governments.

0:02:060:02:08

As the SNP have proven in Scotland, having a strong mandate,

0:02:080:02:12

not a majority,

0:02:120:02:13

is what was needed to defend Scotland's interest at Westminster.

0:02:130:02:17

We in Wales can do this too.

0:02:180:02:21

That means by electing Plaid Cymru MPs across Wales, we can form

0:02:210:02:25

a strong Welsh block in Westminster with a cast-iron mandate from Wales,

0:02:250:02:31

completely focused on protecting the Welsh national interest.

0:02:310:02:36

The things that matter to you.

0:02:360:02:38

In practice, this means that we will demand that all the money currently

0:02:380:02:41

invested into Wales from Europe is replaced by Westminster.

0:02:410:02:45

It means when the Tories bend over backwards to secure

0:02:450:02:49

a trade deal with America, which will likely see UK markets

0:02:490:02:53

flooded with genetically modified food produce

0:02:530:02:56

and steroid-pumped meat products,

0:02:560:02:58

Plaid Cymru will defend Welsh farming interests

0:02:580:03:01

as well as consumers from cheap, inferior and unhealthy imports.

0:03:010:03:06

It means when it's in London's best interests to sell off

0:03:060:03:10

vital public assets like the NHS

0:03:100:03:12

in order to fund the protection of the City of London,

0:03:120:03:15

Plaid Cymru won't let that happen to the Welsh NHS.

0:03:150:03:20

The NHS is a red line issue for us.

0:03:200:03:23

We will continue to defend the Welsh economy with the same vigour

0:03:230:03:27

and determination as we have in protecting the Welsh language

0:03:270:03:30

and culture over the years.

0:03:300:03:33

In short, a Welsh block of MPs at Westminster will stand up for you

0:03:330:03:38

and be the voice that Wales needs,

0:03:380:03:40

protecting our economy, our people, and our nation.

0:03:400:03:43

Those aren't just words, it's about your jobs,

0:03:440:03:47

mortgages and pensions, about our health and education.

0:03:470:03:51

It's about Wales commanding respect and standing in the world.

0:03:510:03:55

Plaid Cymru is the party of Wales, the party of the people of Wales,

0:03:570:04:01

the only party that truly represents Wales.

0:04:010:04:04

Students, pensioners, workers

0:04:040:04:06

and those currently going through difficulties,

0:04:060:04:09

Plaid Cymru will fight tooth and nail for you.

0:04:090:04:12

Plaid Cymru MPs were recently recognised by the House of Commons Library

0:04:130:04:17

as being the most hard-working Welsh parliamentarians at Westminster.

0:04:170:04:22

It's time we do more of what's working and less of what's not.

0:04:220:04:26

It's time we elect even more Plaid Cymru MPs

0:04:260:04:29

to defend Wales' interest during the Brexit negotiations and beyond.

0:04:290:04:34

We are ready to fight for Wales. I trust you are too.

0:04:360:04:40

Come on, let's do this together, for Wales. Diolch.

0:04:400:04:44

if she could date 100 people in her lifetime,

0:04:590:04:59

My wife keeps wondering, could she have done better than me?

0:04:590:05:02

I mean, if she picked you purely romantically,

0:05:020:05:04

instead of rigorously, you may not be the optimal.

0:05:040:05:07

What she should have done is,

0:05:070:05:08

if she could date 100 people in her lifetime,

0:05:080:05:11

she takes the first square root of those, so, 10,

0:05:110:05:13

dates and rejects them,
