Every Member of Plaid Cymru will have been overwhelmed by the amount of letters and e-mails the party has been sending out in the lead-up to the Assembly by-election up there in Ynys Mon/Anglesey.
And the hard work put in by local and national supporters has paid off! Congratulations to Rhun ap Iorwerth for retaining the seat by a nice majority.
Well done, too, the volunteer workers who did lots of publicity to help him get elected.
This is indeed a victory for Plaid, and now the letters and e-mails will be going out to see if the party can secure other Assembly seats right across Wales when the time comes.
As there is no Labour Party any more – the usurper calls itself “New Labour” – the only party anyone who lives in our land can vote for is Plaid Cymru. It is a party whose heart is in Wales and whose candidates do not have to be parachuted in at election time. No parachuting at General Election time, either.
Great news, Plaid.
More News From Plaid Cymru
And, though I do not agree with an unelected body sitting in Wasteminster, it’s good that a man of great good humour – former Plaid Cymru leader, Dafydd Wigley, has been honoured by the Queen of England who has granted him a peerage.
He has already said that, when he takes his seat in the House of Lords, he will speak up for us, the people of Wales. Now that’s a good reason for getting as many Plaid candidates elected to the House of Commons. We who live in this special land, this special nation, need to let Wasteminster – and Mother England – know that our needs may not coincide with those of our Eastern neighbour.
But There’s Still A ‘P’ In Powys!
Powys is about to close forty Council-owned public-toilets.
Not earth-shattering news unless you get taken short in Powys.
However, the news is that they need business to take things over. Sounds like they’d better keep ‘em open a little longer, then, and hope there’s some sort of tummy-bug epidemic . . .
