The road to power

Last night's rally at the Welsh Liberal Democrats Conference in Wrexham was a huge success and has set the tone for the rest of the weekend. The appearance of Liberal Democrat leader Menzies Campbell made all the difference, though some inspirational speeches from Wrexham Council leader, Aled Roberts, former Wrexham MP, Tom Ellis and Lord Roger Roberts also helped. We will gloss over the comment from Baronness Walmsley that the beginning of the year had been a real 'bummer' for the party, so as to spare any more blushes. To be fair though her performance was superb.

This morning's Western Mail reports Ming as saying that any decisions on coalition in Wales is a matter for the Welsh Party. This has always been the case and was how it happened in 2000, but it is worth restating the position for a media who have never really got their head around the idea of a political party allowing its constituent parts to make decisions for themselves. Such latitude would never be allowed to the Welsh Conservatives or Labour of course.
