Shipton talks up coalition

The Western Mail note tensions, but see progress on the Rainbow coalition. The reference to the Plaid meeting in Caernarfon reflects feedback from menaiblog over the weekend, who feels plaid activists are warm towards the idea.

However the devil could be in the detail about issues like the strength of commitment that can be reached on a new Welsh Language Act etc. After the Tories warm words during the election what will they actually sign up for ?

It is interesting t0 note that the voices used in the Western Mial are the Dewis group (Cynnog and Dafydd W etc) - what does Dafydd Iwan have to say as he seems to have gobe off the radar over the last six months ?

Dafydd thinks pretty much the same, as far as I know. But I suppose that around the Assembly elections, the focus is on AMs. Dafydd has been in the media, talking about Plaid just as often as usual - much of our recent success is down to his excellent leadership, and his friendly, open approach to politics. It's just that, at the moment, the cameras are elsewhere.
