The Future Of Wales
I can do no better this week than to report on and express my feelings about the words of Leanne Wood, the Leader of Plaid Cymru.
Speaking at the Party’s Spring Conference in Cardiff, she claimed that Plaid is the only party which can really have influence for Welsh matters in the European Union. That’s pretty obvious to even the casual observer of Welsh politics. Plaid Cymru is based in Wales, its candidates – in local, national and EU elections – live and work in Wales, and whichever member of the party is elected, she or he will have Wales at heart.
Ms. Wood herself loves the land and, I believe, is a keen learner of Cymraeg.
She advised that voting for UKip would be a vote against Wales.
Of course it would – as would voting for any party other than Plaid. Those parties have their roots firmly in Mother England – so why would those who lead those parties be over-bothered about this special land of Wales?
She urges us, the voters of Wales, to make our voices heard and make those voices count.
So there you have it: if you live in Wales, vote for Wales. And Plaid Cymru is the Party of Wales.
