So a few personal thoughts on the Red-Green deal as I suspect we face a week of somewhat tense debate as both parties prepare for wider endorsement (or not as the case may be).
A few weeks ago I feared the Rainbow was a done deal and felt angry that the Tories would be allowed back in with no signifcant mandate from the people. I suppose my own feelings are reference to that possible event.
I was amongst those who said "No Tory coalition" and given the uncertain verdict of the people of Wales on May 3rd then it is a reality that we have to make some arrangement for more effective government.
As the Lib Dems have gone AWOL for some undetermined period (until Mike German goe ?) then we are left with one other Party standing.
The One Wales agreement contain smuch to commend it, and some necessary give and take to deliver a joint platform. That is the effect of PR. I think laptops is a silly gimmick and grants for home buyers a waste of resources as it is a supply side problem.
So I will back Rhodri in this agreement and see what results from the Red-Green work.
