Plaid say ...

Betsan Powys | 15:01 UK time, Saturday, 7 July 2007

Join us around 4pm on Radio Wales and on Radio Cymru and I'll let you know.

But I'll give you a hint, as if you need one.

700 years ago today to the day, Edward the 1st died.

07/07/1307 and the Hammer of the Scots, who had a pretty good go at the Welsh too, was gone.

07/07/2007 might turn out to be pretty historic too.

And by the way if Adam Price turned out to be the most quoted man in the CIA yesterday, guess who tops the list here?

I'm told it's Don Touhig.

Touche.

What a very sad day for Labour, Wales and Great Britain.

Lord Kinnock came a close second, with Mr. Howells following up in third.

What fascinates me is how the whole coalition process has been largely ignored by the UK media. Scant attention to any Welsh politics is paid by London and I suppose their lack of interest in the current debate should not surprise me. But it has, other than brief reports that the coalition has been agreed there seems to have been precious little analysis on the BBC at a UK level. It goes without saying that the London based print media has all but totally ignored it. To all intent and purpose Wales might as well be independent as far as the UK media is concerned, its a small country far away of which they know little and care less.

We met yesterday before Plaid's National Council meeting and I asked you to keep Nick Ainger's comment -"HELPFULLY AMBIGUOUS" - for future reference. I believe this to be an historic quote much like "PEACE IN OUR TIME" and would really appreciate a photocopy from your notebook.
I understand you talked to my friend Dr.John H.Davies about the historic significance of 7/7 and the 700 years since the death of Longshanks but I bet you never guessed the significance of the 18 who fell in 1282 (at the bridge over the Irfon near Cilmeri) and the 18 who voted against the coalition deal with Labour in Pontrhydfendigaid?!
