Missing in action
Plaid Cymru has long argued that Wales should be an independent state with its own representation on the European Council of MInisters and a seat in the United Nations next to Cuba. Today the European Union issued its response. The Eurostat Yearbook 2004 was published with a map on its front cover in which Wales was missing altogether. Perhaps this is not what Plaid Cymru meant. However, their enthusiasm for Europe may well be tempered by the incident. If we don't exist for the bureaucrats then the chances of our own seat around the table looks very remote indeed.
