"We came to this place to be constructive in our position and we want to play the kind of role, which Plaid Cymru claims now to be playing, in relation to the development of government policy.Plaid Cymru leader Leanne Wood, who faced Labour criticism after UKIP backed her bid to become first minister in a tied Senedd vote in May, told Mr Jones:
"I just want to say, in relation to the black route or the blue route, my party is prepared to enter into discussions and negotiations with the government.
"We think the black route is better than no route, and so if this is necessary to unblock the logjam we are prepared to play our part in it."
"It looks like you might be able to strike a deal with UKIP, first minister, on the future of the black route.
"How very interesting."
Of course if the Tories back the Black route then Unip support or opposition becomes irrelevant .
But it just goes to show that accusations of "voting with " Ukip " coming from the Labour benches may well be proved hollow and they should beware of doing so,
