Both Valleys Mam and Plaid Wrecsam have drawn attention to the spat between Peter Black and Leighton Andrews on Twitter and both used the "Handbags at Dawn" simile. The argument between our two "distinguished" politics highlighted with Peter calling Leighton a cretin.
However we must look at the deeper implications of this unedifying correspondence. and it is simply can a Yes campaign be run in favour increasing powers for National Assembly without making a comparison with a Right of centre Westminster coalition and Left of centre Assembly government.
Clearly if this argument was to be carried out by the Yes campaign it would be difficult for the Lib-Dems and Tories who support the measures to back the official campaign and whilst there could well be a advantage (which has not happened in previous referenda) in making such a comparisons wit a Tory led government it does seem that unless Labour are prepared to be accused of sacrificing National unity for future political advantage, they should cease to make such an argument through the "Yes" campaign.
And yet it would mean that those who were seeking greater powers could be loosing a major advantage.Perhaps the next Yougov poll on the referendum in Wales should ask the question.
Do you believe that greater powers to the Welsh Assembly will make Wales less or more vulnerable to cuts from Westminster?
Some would argue that this is far from the point of the proposals, and any argument in this manner would be a false one. However the campaign could well be won or lost on such an argument that Wales will be better protected by a more powerful Assembly;But can the "Yes" campaign make such a claim?
