Plaid Cymru launches its manifesto
Not that it affects me in the least, Plaid Cymru (The Party of Wales) has launched its manifesto today. It wants a 'fairer society' - can't really quarrel with that. They also want to increase the powers of the already existing Welsh Assembly, which does not currently have primary legislation powers, by giving it (as a step to full seperation from the United Kingdom) powers similar to those currently held by the devolved Scottish Parliament. Like its Scottish equivalent, the SNP< Plaid Cymru wants 'independence in Europe'. Visit their website here - click on the link there to read their manifesto (although it seems, from a casual perusal, still to be the previous manifesto - no doubt the latest version will appear shortly).
