Wood’s tak­ing Plaid to the left

Cynon Valley - - YOUR VIEWS -

DE­SPITE po­lit­i­cal elec­toral ev­i­dence, plus calls from the West­min­ster group leader and Jonathan Ed­wards MP, Leanne Wood con­tin­ues to take Plaid Cymru on her jour­ney to the or­bital left.

It’s now time for our lead­ing mem­bers to act.

Llanelli and Cwm Cynon con­stituen­cies are in a mess. No doubt, Cardiff will now start to fail be­cause of AM Neil McEvoy’s pro­posed ex­pul­sion. Neil beat Leanne on the Plaid mem­bers’ first con­sti­tu­tional vote for the South Wales Cen­tral re­gional list nom­i­na­tion. He is ob­vi­ously con­sid­ered a threat.

In 18 months (his sus­pen­sion pe­riod) the nom­i­na­tions process for the next as­sem­bly elec­tions will have closed.

Un­less Plaid Cymru wake up, re­move our “me, me” leader, the party is only go­ing to con­tinue to de­cline.

When Leanne states she would like a con­test for the Plaid lead­er­ship, she should re­quest to be in­cluded in the Guin­ness Book of Records. To those mem­bers who were taken in by this state­ment... “duck, you suck­ers!”

My con­cern, if Plaid fail to steer a new Wales first course, go­ing back to a po­lit­i­cal broad church, this will re­sult in the same fate as the Ti­tanic. Cllr Clay­ton Jones Plaid Cymru Com­mu­nity Coun­cil­lor Ynysybwl & Coed y Cwm Coun­cil
