It was 1865 when the Tories did it last!

William Hague said it was 1931.

Adam Price said it was 1918

As the only person old enough to remember, I can state categorically, that it was in 1865 that the Tories last won the popular vote in a Welsh election.

Of course womenfolk and common folk weren't allowed to vote then - so maybe it doesn't count!

I hope that it will take at least another 144 years before they do it again. If it does I'll blog the result with a link back to this post!

  1. I think you are correct.The 1918 election was the "coupon"election when there was an electoral pact between Lloyd George Liberals and the Tories.The coupon candidates won,but they were not necessarily Tories.
