Since before the Scottish referendum, the Welsh Lib Dems have been calling for Wales to “speak with one voice” to ensure the Welsh voice is not marginalised in future devolution discussions.Following my call for the Welsh parties to come together and agree a common blueprint on devolution, I met with the other three Welsh party leaders to agree a joint motion, which was debated and passed last week.For the first time, all four parties have come together to agree a common platform for the future of devolution.Wales is now speaking with one voice. All four parties must now make sure that voice is heard by Westminster as discussions over our constitutional settlement continue.Liberal Democrats are working hard, both in Cardiff and Westminster, to ensure that Wales is getting the powers it needs to deliver for its people – powers over tax, energy projects, policing and much more. This united voice from Cardiff Bay will help Liberal Democrats in Government bring power closer to the people of WalesSaying you are not opposed to such a blueprint does no mean you don't think it does not go far enough
Part of Plaid's problem since the Welsh Assembly first met is that it concentrated to much on making the existing process work, rather than use it to show its inadequacies and call for Independence.
There's a danger of Plaid being seen as a Party of Devolution,rather than one seeking Independence and being indistinguishable from the others.
It can and should bring forward a Progressive Left and Green agenda but that too should be linked to the argument that we can't do this whilst tied to Westminster where Tories and Blue-Labour have much of the power needed to make real change
So Plaid may for the moment join in this "One Voice" blueprint but that does not mean it surrenders its ambitions
To Quote Terry Pratchett's Lord Vetinari
'I believe you find life such a problem because you think there are the good people and the bad people. You're wrong, of course. There are, always and only, bad people, but some of them are on opposite sides.'
Plaid may have signed up for this but that does not mean they are on the same side as the Unionist Parties.
