Deal or no deal?
It was Plaid's parliamentary leader Elfyn Llwyd (celebrating 18 years as an MP today) who once called the Liberal Democrats 'political whores' for being prepared to strike a deal with anyone.
Given Plaid are touting their availability for deals with .. .well anyone at the moment, what does that, I asked Ieuan Wyn Jones at this morning's al fresco campaign launch in Menai Bridge, make them?
It made ... that a very good question so early in the morning, he said. But the Lib Dems? "I can tell you they're unreliable partners".
The kind soul who'd let slip about Elfyn Llwyd's gem not that long ago blushed as the leader wriggled.
