So why do Labour vote No? I can't answer for the rest of Wales but a Labour 'insider'in Wrecsam have told us that the four Labour Councillors who attended the infamous No launch are voting No because of their 'hatred' of Plaid Cymru whom they perceive as leading the Yes campaign.
This is supported by an article in the Daily Post on the 9th February, where it says (quote):
A statement signed by Ted George, Paul Blackwell, Neil Rogers and Mike Williams said, "We believe that Labour's decision to accept a demand from Plaid Cymru a referendum on increased law making powers as a condition of forming the coalition in 2007 was wrong. We are convinced that Plaid's motive for this was to drive forward its agenda on independence for Wales, a potentially disastrous for the economy of this great nation if it ever came about."
I wonder what's changed since November's Full Council when two of these Labour Councillors supported the Plaid Cymru motion to back a Yes vote?
It seems that the only reason that these four Councillors support a No vote is that they are putting narrow partisan interests before the interests of the people of Wales who deserve a more efficient system of governance. They are cutting their noses to spite their faces.
