It will come as no surprise that I will be voting for Plaid in the European Elections today .
Back on the 10 th may I Blogged that since then
It seems that this might have just worked . Plaid have risen in the Polls and by promoting Jill whose probably the only MEP standing that people outside the political bubble can name.
Ukip will undoubtedly win a seat and the reason for this may be varied but it will largely be a protest vote .
It is sad that the protest vote these days now gores almost entirely to the right even far right and the left partly because they can't unite fail miserably.
It will be also sad that once again there will be no Green representation from Wales and if STV was in place then my second vote would have gone to them.
Unfortunately unlike Norther Ireland
what other European Country has different voting system within its boarder?
I still believe Plaid and the Greens should have formed a pact where Jill Evans would top the list and Green take second place.
But the important thing is that people go out to vote. With some suggesting that voting will be around 30% it will hardly be a ringing endorsement for any party.
However I think I may just avoiding the News on the BBC over the next few days as they gleefully show Nigel Farage gloating over his success.
God Help us.
