The Leader of the Welsh Conservatives in the Senedd Andrew RT Davies has accused the media in Cymru of having a "nationalist agenda that amplifies the so-called inevitable end of the Union."


Writing in Mail+, Mr RT Davies said that many media outlets in Cymru "harbour the same opinions" as "nationalists" and that they "rely on that agenda for their own existence".


Mr Davies also said that Welsh Labour would be "rudderless and without purpose" without the "constant reporting by BBC Wales and taxpayer-funded nationalist ‘news’ sites about Wales being so ‘different’."


He also accused these news outlets of existing to "promote differences that validate their existence, thus trying to legitimise the non-existent calls for a bigger state in Wales."
