Back in May of this year I blogged on Fair Pensions for All; it was in response to the flack and derision that Plaid Cymru's main election promise, that of a decent pension was receiving by opposition parties, the Western Mail and other political bloggers predominantly the Druid. The main criticism was that the policy was not costed out and unaffordable and that it was just a populist stunt.
Chief amongst our critics then were the Liberal Democrats and where are we today? Yes another u turn by Vince Cable plagiarising Plaid Cymru policy by announcing an increase of the Minimum Income Guarantee of State Retirement Pension of £140 a week for a single person. Isn't that damned close to what Plaid Cymru were proposing just 6 months ago. I wonder what the Druid has to say now? probably he'll be very supportive now its been proposed by the Con Dems.
