Plaid have a very god reason to celebrate having gained the Buttrills Ward in the Vale of Glamorgan by-election yesterday (2nd August)
Plaid were well placed to win this as their Candidate Ian Johnson, who fought the Vale of Glamorgan constituency at the 2010 General Election and the 2011 Assembly election; and fought this ward at the previous election in May.
Still with Labour at its strongest position in Wales its a very good result result and its possible that at the moment only Plaid can challenge Labour in Wales.
Buttrills ward result
PC 541 (44%)
Lab 503 (41%)
Con 90 (7%)
Ind 82 (7%)
Plaid Cymru GAIN from Labour
May 2012 result
I imagine Ian wll be going to have a god time on the Maes at the Vale of Glamorgan Eisteddfod over the next 7 days.
