"There's an opportunity to get Conservative policies on the statute book" said Alun Cairns on Wales Today tonight as he reflected on the potential for a Rainbow coalition.
I can see why Ieaun and Alun Ffred's generation see the Ministerial limousines as atractive as I assume 40 years of nationalism has been waiting for this sort of moment. It is why Cynog and Dafydd formed the pressure group Dewis a few years back.
But judging by comments left on my blog during the election campaign do Plaid activists really see their future with the Tories ?
I wait and see.
