She also struck a defiant zone, pointing out the SNP was once written-off as well:
“Everybody told them it wasn’t possible for them to form a Government, too.”
Unfortunately she also claimed
“We’re not campaigning for independence.”
“Our economy is too weak. We’re already facing a situation where workers in Wales earn 85% of the UK average.”
I am not some one who believes Wales should be Independent even if the economy was to resemble Albania before or after Enver Hoxa.
But I believe that it is a vital road to take if we are to improve our economy.
I accept that a manifesto for the next Assembly Election and beyond may look radically different to one for an Independent Wales but there is no reason not to explain the latter at the same time
We are faced with years of Conservative rule who intend to carry on with the Austerity program even if the UK was to enter a Boom period.
I sincerely wish Jeremy Corbyn well, but I suspect that the Blarites who are now masking themselves as centralist moderates will use any failure for Labour to rise in the polls to epose him within three years.
This will pave the way for a Blair 2 candidate who might well win in the converted Middle England and becuse the Welsh Assembly will not receive the necessary powers who will do little to change the Welsh economy.
Even a Plaid Assembly Government will find it difficult to change the current state of us being poor West Britains.
Plaid need to give the electorate a vision of a Vibrant, Confident and Independent Wales. Campaigning to be in charge of how we spend Westminster's Pocket Money is not going to take us anywhere.
