Academic exercise

I think I can now reveal what a group of students - studying Welsh and UK Politics at Aberystwyth and doing a course on polls - came up with when they had a bit of a practice in Llanelli a few weeks ago. (Just 300 people and just practising, remember.)

We took one look and thought they might scrape a 2:2.

They were:

Plaid 51%
Labour 35%
Tories 9%
Lib Dems 5%

No result yet but keep this to hand when it comes in.

They may yet deserve a first. Hear that Mr Scully?

Haha, as a former Aber student I get the reference to good old Scully... no-one else? Oh well.

Betsan keeps saying about how hard Catherine Thomas and the Labour Party Machine have been working in Llanelli. She wouldn't be saying this if she lived here. I moved here six months ago to be near my elderly mother, this will be my first time voting in the Welsh Assembly Elections. My mother have voted in all the previous ones. I live in Bynea, Llanelli and I haven't seen any thing of Labour not even a leaflet since the election has been called. I did get one leaflet / report earlier telling us what Catherine Thomas had done but nthing since the Election called. My mother has one leaflet from Labour. I like my mother have had delivered five or six leaflets from Plaid plus their candidate Helen Mary Jones has been round knocking on the doors. I'm a member of a poltical party but not Plaid. I have received two leaflets from the conservatives and one from each of the regional parties. Not sure where Betsan was getting her information but saying Labour have been fighting hard is joke. certainly

having seen two narrow defeats by Plaid Cymru and Labour in the past few years are the BBC able to look at the results of the postal votes.

Bearing in mind the General election allegations about fixing
