The left rise again?
The Independent AM for Wrexham, John Marek, has finally launched his own party. This one does not incorporate his name in its title. It is called Forward Wales, Cymru Ymlaen, which sounds suspiciously like the title of a previous Welsh Conservative manifesto. His first acts involve trying to get money off Trade Unions and seeking an electoral pact with the Green Party. He is aiming to have "sensible left wing" policies. This appears to involve borrowing the best bits off everybody else. Still at least open toed sandals with socks may well make a comeback.
