Political analysis shared

This posting on the deliberations of blogmenai about Plaid's schools reorganisation is very telling.

It seems that some want to narrow down the crisis to now naming a few people including the Party President !

An interesting strategy.

I think that you misunderstand the thrust of the post.

I'm not blaming anyone for anything - the signatures on the report are a matter of public record, & the gentlemen involved make no secret of the fact that they signed it.

The post simply highlights political issues & difficulties that arise out of the process by which the report was produced & publicised.

As it happens, I do have considerable difficulties with aspects of the report - but it is at least intellectually coherent & addresses most of the issues that have made change in the system necessary.

You on the other hand offer no view on the matter. Your interest seems to be limited to a bit of purile shite stirring.

Er, the report was written by a very very small group of people. Everbody knows that Martin. That's kind of the reason that a lot of people are upset. Do try to keep up, Martin.

Before the last set of elections I remember one very vocal - and repetitive - Plaid blogger on here saying he was supporting Plaid as they would defend village schools from Labour's "closure" plans.

How ironic it is then Plaid who twist the knife in the schools he felt they were going to defend only a few months later.

But where is this blogger now

Why has he remained silent on this issue so close to his heart

What a hypocrite...

Crikey - and there was I thinking Plaid was an organised political party and that Parry Hughes and Iwan would have been speaking to their own councillors about the 55 (?) local meetings and debating the emerging issues.

Come on, all was going nicely till the ceiling fell in - now they all want off a sinking ship (lovely mixed metaphors).

Well its now a rock and a hard place, but any backing off means they will fail to meet the educational objectives set out in their own report.

Its a bit hot in the kitchen and blogmenai seems to suggest that Parry Hughes and the President face a gloomy few weeks.

Ahem Martin - your post doesn't make any sense.

Monday evening is a bit early in the week for this sort of thing.

Quite. But then, that's Martin being true to form.

But where is this blogger now


"Who" is this blogger would be a better question.

BTW - I note that you refer to the council leader by his surname.

This is kind of counter cultural.

Modern Wales is markedly informal, & this applies to the political sphere. If Nick Bourne & Rhodri Morgan are on first name terms it's difficult to see why you use public school conventions when refering to public figures in Gwynedd.

Richard or Dic Penfras would be more in keeping with the ethos of twenty first century Wales.

Digon teg - but whether Parry Hughes, Richard or Dic Penfras I think the pressure is on.
