Some anti-EU commentators are obviously not serious.

A few days ago the senior Tory Lord Michael Howard, whom I met many years ago in South Wales and never liked, let the cat out of the bag by saying that we ought to vote to leave in order to stay in.

The idea is to drum up a majority in favour of leaving and then use the voting figures as a lever to negotiate a more satisfactory EU deal than Prime Minister David Cameron was able to obtain.

A pact is being brokered between the EU and USA which would create the biggest free trade zone in the history of the world. Does Little Britain really want to be left out in the cold? I doubt it.


Before the EU referendum takes place in June this year we have the National Assembly for Wales election on Thursday 5 May 2016. 

Llywodraeth Cymru aka Welsh Government deals with education, housing, transport and even runs the NHS in Wales. It matters!

Labour Party I regard as a millstone round the neck of Wales preventing us from modernising properly; Conservative Party does not seem to know whether it is coming or going over Europe. Other parties hold no appeal for this blogger except Plaid Cymru.

Plaid Cymru is the only political party based entirely in Wales. It aims to represent all who live here regardless of their origins, and it is pro-EU.

In Vale of Clwyd (Rhyl & Prestatyn to Denbigh) our local candidate is Mair Rowlands and, even though Plaid has no history of winning around here, Mair will get my vote in this context.
