Well Plaid's bums are almost on the seats, and who exactly it will be will be unveiled in the coming period. However the fact that Red-Green have found common ground already sees Lord DET playing for a longer game. His comments to the BBC seem to reflect concerns amongst some nationalists that a long march to freedom might be diverted by the attractions and comforts of power.
Indeed his comments seem to strike much common ground with observations from Peter Hain that ruling coalitions should not call referendums that they could well loose.
Anyone for a referendum by 2015 ?
