Making the case for a 'yes' vote

Aberavon MP, Hywel Francis is absolutely right when he says in this morning's Western Mail that campaigners for greater devolution need to do much more to make their case relevant to ordinary voters.

We should not be fooled by the polls into believing that it is all done and dusted. In my experience support for a 'yes' vote is soft and a lot of work needs to be done in firming it up and motivating people to go out and vote. One way we can do that is to demonstrate how cutting out the Legislative Competence Order process will enable us to pass laws that will make a real difference to people's lives.

The other matter of concern is the absence of any cross party 'yes' campaign. We have now passed at least two dates when I understood that this campaign was going to be launched and nothing has happened. What has happened to this organisation and why are we leaving it so late to get it off the ground?
Ah......those pesky Legislative Compentency Orders!
I think in my area the feeling is to vote No....
I meet a lot of people and they can't wait to vote NO.
And what area would that be?
Funnily enough, my area's quite keen on a 'no', too, but rumours that the town's looking into seceding from Wales and joining Somerset in the event that a 'yes' happens are, so far, only that, rumours.
I think True Wales has done some strong research on this. On their excellent website their clearly sound, methodological polls show a clear plurality in favour of abolition.
