Amusing little spat between Plaid Cymru and Labour being reported in today's media. The BBC and the Western Mail are both covering the story. It particularly pleases me because I've been love-bombing Plaid politicians for years (apart from the odd moment when the inevitable frustration of constant rejection manifests itself in a niggardly form). The only way I cope with the constant spurning of my affection is by thinking of all the little spats there would be if the Rainbow Coalition had been running the National Assembly. Perhaps it'll develop into a full-on fight. And its Valentine's Day as well.
I do agree with what Plaid Cymru are trying to do here, even if does look like something of a stunt. If anyone wants to contribute to the Labour Party, then best of luck to them. But no-one should be contributing unless they've taken a conscious decision to do so. Plaid are making it easier for trade unionists to opt out of paying the political levy to Labour. Predictably union bosses are not happy with this, but if there isn't a need for it, the Plaid initiative will not make any difference.
But its only a little spat. The sort of thing that happens every day in most marriages. The Lib Dems and the Conservatives can have a harmless bit of entertainment though - which is all I'm doing by writing this post..
