Well no-one can accuse Plaid of being ...

... inconsistent.  The left wing tomfoolery, 1950's socialism by any other name, continue to produce evidence of its narrow unimaginative vision, it seems to pour from the fingertips of the "separatist agenda" like some honeyed but bitter medicine, the latest is the exhortation for the Labour Party to continue its "great leap forward" in the tradition of Mao Zedong, by keeping central control of those aspects of our lives that provide our local needs, the Local Authority.

Rhodri Glyn Thomas, AM for Carmarthen East, demonstrates the unswerving adherence to central control when he writes ...
"Labour need to ensure that they have a long term strategic vision for Welsh communities so that they don’t risk slipping into a situation where cross council delivery creates chaos for front-line services."
 ... the problem for this Plaid politician is a vision of the future where political control would be lost to him and his.

Might it be that the Labour Party of Carwyn Jones is releasing the bindings that have held Wales back in its search for a better social and economic tomorrow, whereas a year ago we might have written of the Labour Party ...
"the economic and political dominance of one group that does not share power and privilege in an egalitarian fashion"
... and this group would include the occasional political prosthetics of Kirsty Williams and Ieuan Wyn Jones hanging onto the shirt tails of the Labour Party.  But today the Labour Party could be about to relinquish some of its dominance by encouraging our Local Authorities to take up the mantle of service provision designed for the locality it serves, including shared services with other authorities, education from Offa's Dyke to the Gower with the Heads of the Valley as a northern boundary might be a possibility if our councillors have the stomach for cooperation, a little large possibly but an example of the possibilities of cooperation

So for the likes of the 2nd division resident at Tŷ Gwynfor, a message from Oscar Wilde ...

"consistency is the last refuge of the unimaginative"

... and the separatist agenda is nothing if not consistent and unimaginative.
