Referendum is forever delayed

Alison Goldsworthy reported from the Compass annual conference on Freedom Central on Monday that a senior Plaid Cymru figure had suggested that a referendum on the further transfer of powers to the Welsh Assembly was ‘frankly unlikely’ in this term of office.

Now the reborn Secretary of State for Wales, Peter Hain has backed that judgement up with an interview in the Western Mail in which he suggests that the target date of 2011 promised in the One Wales agreement for a referendum is not really on the cards.

I am sure that there are many Plaid Cymru members this morning wondering why they signed up for a pact with Labour especially when many only did so because they were promised that this was the only way to secure that early referendum.
did the really expect Labour to be honest about anything? I've lost all respect that I had for Labour politicians, and I'm fast losing any respect I have for Labour voters too...
Not surprised are you peter! The Lib Dems did not give you PR!

Labour does not do sharing government really!
The difference is that the 2000 Partnership Government did not promise PR.
The Mayan calendar predicts that the Earth will end on December 21, 2012, so when you titled this blog "Referendum is forever delayed" you are quite right!
I stand corrected! My excuse I was out of the country at the time!

And that should have read "Labour Did not give you PR"

Which you did not catch either! ;)
I did spot it. I was just being courteous in not pulling you up on it.
