No-one would deny that Adam Price is an able politician - but he has spent too long in London. In today's Western Mail he states that Plaid Cymru will "never allow" a Conservative led coalition to govern in the National Assembly. This statement warrents interpretation.
We all expect Labour to lose enough seats to eliminate any prospect of a Labour only Government. A categorical refusal to consider working with the Conservatives means that Adam is committed to joining a Labour coalition, irrespective of how badly Labour perform. I do not think the Welsh people deserve the restricted choice of Labour or a Labour led coalition. There will be a political price to be paid for guaranteeing Rhodri Morgan continuation in office - even if Labour has a catastrophic result.
To quote Taurus ap Thomas, "I hear my country cry out for the chains of Labour's to be broken. Oh, what painful irony it is that Plaid Cymru, who claim to love her most, then block her path to freedom"
