This is a great post. Well done. Labour MP's hang your head in shame.

And Labour are getting a pasting on the doorstep too... http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/thereporters/betsanpowys/2009/05/jumping_for_cover.html

Is the Euro election going to see Labour lose its grip on Wales for the first time in a 100 years?

Of course these British nationalist warmongers are a disgrace. And they based their anti-Gurkha vote on racism: too many immigrants. We mustn't forget, too, that they've abandoned their Iraqi interpreters in al Basrah. See, they are foreigners too. History teaches us well: perfidious Albion.

But here's the contradiction, the 'British Jobs For British Workers' party, is now shedding crocodile tears about right-wing extremism. Their anti-working class policies, promotion of Islamo-phobia and imperialist military adventures have sown the seeds and now they complain about the whirlwind.

What I don't understand is that some Plaid people - like Lenin's 'useful idiots' - can ally with these frauds. Isn't it much better to campaign strongly for the best Plaid vote on 4th June and let the British nationalists of all stripes fight among themselves?

A progressive vote for Plaid on June 4 sends a clear message both in terms of a verdict on the current government and the need for a distinctive Welsh voice in Europe. Two Plaid MEPs is a tall order but not impossible given the collapse in the Labour vote.
