Conservatives investigate politician for slamming Sir Keir Starmer over his US Capitol Tweet


The Conservative Party are investigating comments by one of their senior Welsh politicians who slammed Sir Keir Starmer in a response Tweet regarding the recent protesting and riots in the US capitol.

Andrew RT Davies faced calls to retract tweets aimed at Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer and Senedd member Alun Davies.


Responding to a tweet from Sir Keir, the former Tory Senedd group leader said: “To be honest I’m not sure you’re in the strongest position right now given you campaigned to overturn democracy and the will of the British people.”

The Labour leader has originally posted a Tweet saying: “Horrendous scenes from the US.

“These are not ‘protestors’ – this a direct attack on democracy and legislators carrying out the will of the American people.”

The Tory member of the Senedd (MS) responded to Labour’s Blaenau Gwent MS Alun Davies in a tweet, saying: “The scenes in Washington are a disgrace as I’ve said and all stem from politicians – like your good self – who refuse to accept the results of democratic elections.”

In another tweet, that was pinned to his profile, Andrew RT Davies said: “Awful scenes in Washington DC. This is what happens when the outcome of a democratic election is not respected.”

A Welsh Conservative spokesperson said: “The scenes in Washington last night were disgraceful and unacceptable. We totally condemn them. We are investigating these comments.”

Mr Davies said in a later tweet: “Violence must never be tolerated and I will work with politicians of all persuasions to ensure we never see scenes like those in Washington in this country.

“No one should be in any doubt about my position on this.”
