Plaid to win Swansea West?

Sources inform me that things are looking good for Plaid in Swansea West in what could be the shock result of the election.

The current incumbent Andrew Davies has been trying to make a name for himself of late with sensationalist attacks on Plaid. Political commentators have viewed this as an early Labour leadership bid – but could his Plaid bashing have more to do with more immediate concerns.

He has a majority of only around 3,000 and is up against Ian Titherington who is a bit of a local hero. Plaid are really turning the screw against Labour’s decision to move neurosurgery to Cardiff in what looks like being the defining issue for the whole Swansea area.

Game on as they say!

Wonderful news. If Plaid gets elected Swansea West would finally have a voice after eight years of the grey man. Andrew Davies is the John Major of Welsh politics - kick him out!
