Unfortunately for them a prominent Clwyd South Conservative, John Broughton has let his guard drop and in a Twitter comment praising Jonathan Morgan AM's blog on 'localism' said:
@grahnat: Good article by J Morgan on localism. But it won't happen via a yes vote 'cos we aint in charge. Vote No 03/03 http://tinyurl.com/66vcte6
What does 'cos we ain't in charge' mean? To me it means that if the Tories were in a position to form a government after May's Assembly elections they would be happy for extra powers but because they are unlikey of being part of the next government they intend to vote No to stop a Labour or a Labour Plaid Cymru government from governing effectively.
But what I find absolutely ironic about all of this is that the title of Jonathan Morgan's blog is (wait for it) "Trust people to manage their affairs"... can you believe it?
The grass root Tory opposition to a Yes vote is based on rank hypocrisy and sacrificing good governance in favour of political point scoring.
