After Ieuan suspended talks with Labour the BBC reported as follows :
"Leanne Wood, Bethan Jenkins, Helen Mary Jones and Nerys Evans said they were against a coalition with the Tories. Leanne Wood said:
"It is with regret that we do not agree with the decision made in our group meeting. We respectfully disagree.
"We fought this election on a platform to deliver a proper Parliament for our nation. A deal with the Conservatives would undermine the chance of delivering that goal."
Helen Mary Jones added there was a clash of values and principles between Plaid and the Tories, and that the AMs who opposed the move had thought "long and hard about making a public statement".
"But, we think it is now right that we seek to convince our members to oppose what we believe would be a mistaken decision," she said.
So it seems the seeds of destreuction for the rainbow may have been sown, or is this just a necessary distraction before bowing to the democratic views of party members this weekend.
Of course it also means some saw Labour's reported 28 page offer as a basis for business, while a majority of the others have the smell of government chairs (do they smell?) in their nostrils.
I suspect a number of phone calls will be made before this weekend's conference votes.
If it doesn't stack up I'd better get another pair of shoes ready for another campaign ahead !.
