I am absolutely delighted that Oscar and Natasha Asghar have decided to leave Plaid Cymru and join the Welsh Conservative Party.
It is great that Oscar is going to be part of our Assembly team in the run-up to the next Assembly elections. He is a man who commands respect within the Assembly and in the communities of South Wales East.
His daughter, Natasha, is an energetic campaigner and an experienced candidate. I look forward to them both playing an important role in the Conservative Party in the future.
Their decision is another sign that only the Conservative Party, under David Cameron’s leadership, can bring about the change Wales and Britain needs.
I hope others will follow Mohammad and Natasha’s example and join us to make that change happen.
