I've decided to join in the current speculation about the political complexion of Wales in 20 years time. I'm setting a target of an overall majority of Conservative Assembly Members, and winning 30 of the Welsh Parliamentary seats. I'm considering establishing a Web site named 'Yes Wales Can'.
Here follows my preferred quotes; "We believe that the best way we can respond to the world's challenges, and also achieve our potential as a nation is to be a Conservative country"...."The truth is that people's heads say yes, but their hearts have doubts. They have some serious questions we have to address, and we need to address as a country and as a nation."....."Over the next decade, our aim is to increase the level of support for Welsh Conservatism to over 40%, and within 20 years to get a majority to support Welsh Conservatism as a policy."...."We have a long term goal as a party, and what we are going to be doing is creating a route map for the nation, and also create a space for the nation to have that necessary debate about where we see Wales as a nation in the world in the 21st century."....."We have always believed that Welsh Conservatism is the answer - its the only way we can ensure for Wales what we've always wanted, which is a future better than the past."Although it is vital that we concentrate on the problems facing Wales at the moment, it is also our responsibility to discuss our longer term vision for Wales".
Seems to me that there is absolutiely no reason why other political parties shouldn't join me in this sort of speculation, especially if they are facing serious splits about policy, and want to divert attention away from their internal difficulties.
