Plaid Setting the Agenda

‘Eleven for Eleven’ doesn’t quite have the same ring to it as Plaid ‘7 4 ‘07’. Labour are copying Plaid in more ways than one. The most interesting thing about Labour’s manifesto is that there seems to be a step change in the thinking of the party away from pandering to the grey vote towards policies aimed to other age groups.

It’s clear Plaid’s narrative of policies based on hope for the future has caught Labour off guard. I welcome Labour’s change of emphasis, although it is clear there is no vision there, merely panic stricken induced policy announcements.

The choice for the people of Wales is quite clear. Plaid’s comprehensive programme and clear vision or Labour’s piecemeal and ill thought out offering?
