There has been a somewhat (though understandable ) reaction from some Plaid and Green supporters in the wake of the apparent surge in the Green vote in Wales.
Some Nationalist Bloggers though not entirely Plaid supporters have long been suspicious of the Greens here seeing them as merley a branch of the English Greens and having some members hostile tom the Welsh language and Independence.
On the Green side there is suspicion over Plaid's neutrality particularly over Nuclear power .
Still the Parties have joined together in an Anti-Austerity pact . Though why we may well ask hasn't Mebyon Kernow been invited to join in .
When I questioned this on Facebook I was told by some because MK can't win which is affront to democracy and what the parties in this pact claim to be fighting for.
Which brings me to the Election in Wales .
I am not a fan of Tactile Voting . The Liberals Democrats with their Little Bar Charts and claims that only they can win here. i have always found insulting.
I vote foe the Party that I think best represents my point of view.
At the moment its Plaid and I could switch to the Greens in a year where Plaid may have dropped some particular policy I support.
I live in the Pontypridd Constituency where Plaid have little chance in wining but I wil vote for them because that what democracy is supposed to be about.
Proportional Representation under STV would make this easier though it might mean I give my second vote to a Green candidate.
But that would be my choice.
This does not mean that I do not urge Green voters to vote Plaid because in some ways we will be voting for the Anti-Austerity Bloc but it is up to them and as there Anti- Austerity Bloc party in England it would be a pity to split it in Wales.
I suppose its somewhat hypocritical of me to call for this but the Bloc is unique in UK politics and does change the landscape.
However this is a suggestion and we should always use our right to vote for the Party we want even if there is alternative.
In the meantime I urge both Plaid and Green supporters to concentrate on attacking the Westminster consensus rather than attacking each other.
