A New Day a New Wales

What a difference a few weeks make. After the election to the National Assembly it seemed that what ever happened Labour would be in power, secure in the knowledge that the Liberal Democrats would come to their aid. However, as we all know this was not to be... Then we had the promise of the Rainbow Coalition, a progressive non-Labour alliance of parties on governing on a radical program. And now it looks like Labour are doing the incredible, supporting a coalition between themselves and their arch rival Plaid Cymru.... Who would have thought it?

Now the question is how much mischief can the party rebels make from Westminster? Potentially quiet a lot, which of course is the weakness of the current devolution settlement.

All we need now is for Plaid to put the icing on the cake an see who gets what in the new settlement.

We live in interesting times.
