The campaign for OMOV long desired is won. It’s a simple matter of democracy Every few years the electorate vote for their Member of Parluament. Why should it not be the case that those who walk the streets, push leaflets through the doors and campaign..be given the same right.
In Wales now One Member One Vote means that even if you are of the Kinnock dynasty who is an MP and has big Daddy behind you and are married to the former Prime Minister of Denmark then your vote within the Welsh Labour Party is equal to the newest member of that party.
In Wales OMOV means the exorcism of the ghost or revenant of George Thomas, the right wing union block votes and centralised conservative Welsh Labour so beloved of the last sixty years..
One more drama remains and that is the drama of the Plaid leadership election. The drama will unfold over the next two weeks…Will Plaid drift to the centre? Or become a second party of the left in Wales. My little birds and dire wolves are everywhere informing of cells within cells, groups within groups.. as Jac of the Alt Right is banished from the steering committee of Ein Gwlad he reveals more of his inanity and inability to face up to the type of criticism he gives to so many My observers penetrate the defences of the Praetorian guard around Prince Neale McEvoy…and fascinating alliances are revealed. I hear of a supporter of the other claimant Prince Adam who feels that non Welsh speaking working class members of Plaid should be ‘ encouraged to leave..
It’s going to be a fascinating Autumn and as Brexit nears the drama deepens…but you are all going to have to wait for the news my outriders have brought to me…well until next week…
