Scumbag Labour - I'r Gad Alun!

A video started doing the rounds recently which shows a young and skinny Alun Davies speaking quite frankly on camera about the Labour party.

Alun used to be a member of Plaid Cymru until he switched allegiances to Labour. The video appears to be from the mid 2000s when I myself was young and skinny. Clearly we've both visited the same spare chin shop at some point over the passed decade but enough of that. I've decided to share the video because it's interesting how someone who had such anti-Labour convictions could become swayed into becoming a Labour AM.

AD is gangster AF

I've also transcribed the video, which really wasn't that difficult to do. Here's the video. The text is below.

Text 1
In 2005 Trish Law left the Labour Party because she believed they had abandoned the people of Blaenau Gwent

Text 2
To try and kick her out the Labour leadership wants Alun Davies to defeat the defector

Text 3
But what does Alun really think about the Labour party?

Alun's speech
“Plaid Cymru has a radical agenda, the parliament is a mechanism for implementing that agenda. We, our agenda, if you listen to Dafydd Whigley’s speech yesterday was about a sustainable economic development in Wales and a society based on social justice. All of these issues are distinctive Plaid Cymru issues and (stutters) only Plaid Cymru is putting these issues forward onto the political agenda.

I’m quite happy to work alongside any other organisation to implement those changes, but I’m not convinced that any British based party will deliver the goods that we need here in Wales. At the moment Tony Blair’s changes in the Labour party are cosmetic in Wales. The people I see in Wales in the Welsh Labour Party are still the same gangsters as there were twenty years ago.

Now the Labour leadership is supporting him as the preferred candidate for Blaenau Gwent. Alun’s infiltration is now complete…

Text 5
I’r Gad Alun! (To battle Alun!)

I've added the translation at the end and also the emphasis on the part which the maker of the video has clearly repeated but apart from that it's word for word.

There's three possibilities here. Firstly, Alun could be a spy that either hasn't come back to the fold or has decided to go native. Secondly, he might have been seduced with power. The promise of becoming an AM in what was, until recently, a safe seat with the big salary must be a strong pull. Thirdly, here's my tinfoil theory, since Alun did look like a young Judge Reinhold, he could be the victim of a really bad body swap movie where they failed to revert back to their normal bodies. In this case there must be a Plaid member out there stuck in a Red Tories body, perhaps Ron Davies?

Anyway, surely this means that by his own admission Alun is now one of the gangsters who he believed weren't capable/willing to implement the kind of economic development and social justice that Wales needs.

As always, Alun is free to comment. And if the real Alun is indeed stuck in the body of Ron Davies then let me know and I'll study all the movies to find a way of breaking you free.
