Thursday's Caernarfon Herald carried a letter in which I tried to reflect on election messages and more recent events :
"During the recent Assembly election campaign I warned voters on two key issues. Firstly I warned that to see Mr Wigley elected they would need to vote Eaglestone in Arfon, as Plaid could not have success in both the regional list and in the constituencies. I was proved right and I suspect some people now feel short changed by Plaid's campaign.
However of far greater significance I warned that a vote for Plaid Cymru could be a vote for the Tories. Despite all the bluff and bluster we now see the possibility that this warning might also prove correct. I know that these things can change quickly when negotiating such political agreements, but did the people of Arfon really vote to see the Conservatives back in power"
