Carwyn Jones is the First Minister of Wales, he is responsible for strategic and corporate planning in the Welsh Government and the legislative programme, just to name a few. Last week our very own Enemy of the Skate caught up with him, here is what she had to say:
“Anyone that knows me – knows that I’m quite direct and straight to the point. So my first question to Carwyn Jones was “Hello, do you know what Roller Derby is” “No” was the quick answer. Lucky I came to the meeting prepared. I gave him a copy of our next bout Twin Town Throwdown poster and a few copies of our previous bout programmes. I told him about all the different teams in Wales and how Roller Derby is the fastest growing sport in the UK. I told him that he should be proud of what Wales has achieved in the sport and there are lots of teams he can follow.”
So now he knows about roller derby I wonder if we should expect him at our next game!
