The Plaid,Lib Dem, Green electoral pact i, Wales is either Inspired, Cynical or potentially disastrous for at least one of the Parties.
We can wonder how many Lib Dem or potential voters wil be enough to secure Arfon which is threatened by Labour or win Ynys Môn in the past it could have made a difference and a Lib Dem revival could take votes of Plaid.
On the other hand one wonders if Plaid hasnt already squeezed the potential Lib Dem Vote already and whether some Lib Dems will now move to a Unionist Party /
Llanelli, Caerphilly and Pontypridd look like wishful thinking and But it has not all gone down well with all members of their parties and two prominent members of the Welsh Liberal Democrats announcing their resignation from the party because of the 'alliance pact'.
|Liberal Democrat||Mike Powell||11,435||31.2||+11.2|
|Plaid Cymru||Ioan Bellin||2,673||7.3||−3.7|
|Socialist Labour||Simon Parsons||456||1.2||N/A|
|Plaid Cymru||Fflur Elin||4,102||10.3||-1.2|
|Liberal Democrat||Mike Powell||1,963||4.9||-8.0|
This looks like the obvious seats for the Lib Dems to target , though whether they can win them is a mute point , Certainly the Plaid vote switching is not going to make much of a difference and although Cardiff Central used to be their stronghold in the Capitol jo Stevens a Remain supporter has built up a healthy lead.taking much of the LIb Dem support
|Liberal Democrat||Eluned Parrott||5,415||13.4||-13.7|
|Plaid Cymru||Mark Hooper||999||2.5||-2.5|
If there was a true move for a Remain attack on Labour Leavers then why not Stephen Kinnock in Aberavon where it might have at least dented Pillocks huge majority?
To be honest this looks like giving the Greens a free run looks like a token to give the impression of a three party welsh pact
|Plaid Cymru||Ian Johnson||2,295||4.3||−1.3|
|Liberal Democrat||Jennifer Geroni||1,020||1.9||−0.7|
|Women’s Equality||Sharon Lovell||177||0.3||N/A|
and it may be that its intention is to defeat Alun Cairns .
There will be many like Mike Powell in all parties not happy with this and frankly unless it suddenly captures the public imagination , could make little or no difference.
Much may depend on whether Plaid's Adam Price is not frozen out of the UK leaders debate .
If he can reach the public he may well push this further than I expect, if not his short leadership may be called into question
