Defective political farce

George Monbiot’s support for Plaid Cymru seems to be attracting a great degree of excitement on the interweb from Plaid supporters. Cynical Dragon and Heledd Fychan have mentioned the story.

Monbiot said

“Living in Wales, the choice isn’t hard for me. Plaid Cymru, in its present incarnation, is a green, progressive, effective political force. I see little point in splitting the vote between parties with politics like mine, and while the Green candidates appear to be likeable people, they are always going to be playing catch-up here.”

It looks like Labour in Wales is going to take a hit, as it will do across the UK. Although not tied to any political party Disgusted would not be comfortable seeing Labour wiped out anywhere. When the Tories sweep into office next year we’ll need Labour to be an effective political force in opposition in Parliament, rather than a defective political farce as it seems we’ll be left with.
