The UKIP candidate said that she met a multitude of like-minded people at the protest whose concerns centred around the future of their children and grandchildren.

claims that Plaid Cymru and Labour have dominated the political landscape in Wales for generations to the detriment of all. The NHS waiting list, the education system, and the demise of the town centre all need addressing urgently.

The candidate claims that Carmarthenshire County Council are £400m in debt and asks where the money has been spent.

She said: “The lack of housing and rental accommodation for local people is an outrage. We were never asked if we wanted Wales to be a ‘nation of Sanctuary’. We were not consulted on the Net Zero madness or the 20MPH restrictions.”
