Do Plaid want a vote on Assembly abolition?

This is my first live blog. Just watching the Politics Show where Dave called for a vote to abolish the Assembly. Rhodri Glyn Thomas said that he was happy with that - as long as there was an option of a Scottish type Parliament in Wales. I didn't know this was Plaid's policy. It was Conservative policy when Michael Howard was our Westminster leader - but we have dropped the referendum option since David Cameron became leader.

Now David Melding is demonstating a greater commitment to devolution than Rhodri Glyn who refuses point blank to talk about Plaid's traditional commitment to 'Independence'. Peter Black has agreed with Melders - as I do. Pleased to see that Jane Davidson is turning her fire on Plaid Cymru today. She must believe the ITV / NOP poll of last week.

Peter Black has mentioned the 2000/2003 Partnership Government several times now. It looks as if he is setting out the ground for a repeat. Must say that Rhodri Glyn looked seriously policy light. Now Nick Griffin has just come on. Time for lunch.

A vote to abolish the Assembly is a vote against the democratic sovereignty of Wales. Should we also then vote on reintroducing slavery? I think not. Even considering to offer it as an option is absurd.

To even be compared with Arsembly is an honour - and it was Rhodri Glynne who agreed with Dave about the abolition vote. You better have a word with him sanddef. I usually compare it with wanting India back.
