Plaid Cymru

Plaid Cymru's annual conference is to be held here in Denbighshire at Llangollen Pavilion (shown above). The conference is on Friday and Saturday, 21st and 22nd October. 

The government's EU shambles is bound to be a major point of debate. Plaid's position is that leaving the EU would be extremely damaging to the Welsh economy and endanger a great many jobs.

If we are to be dragged out by circumstance, at least Plaid will be on the alert to see that Wales comes away with the best possible deal.

I am pleased to note that there will be a Scottish National Party guest speaker. Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland need to be even more vigilant than usual to see that England does not have all its own way at this critical time.

Incidentally have you heard about Undeb Credyd Plaid Cymru / Plaid Cymru Credit Union? You can get information by telephoning 029 2049 1888 or email:



Changes have been proposed that would reduce the total number of Westminster MPs and make constituencies more even in size in terms of population.

At present Wales has 40 MPs. This would reduce to just 29, losing us 11 seats (Conservatives would lose 4, Labour would lose 7).

Rhyl is currently in the Vale of Clwyd constituency. Parts of this and parts of Delyn would be combined to create a brand new constituency named Flint and Rhuddlan.

Flint and Rhuddlan would comprise Bagillt, Brynford, Caerwys, Cilcain, Dyserth, Ffynnongroyw, Flint, Greenfield, Gronant, Gwernaffield, Halkyn, Holywell, Mostyn, Northop, Prestatyn, Rhuddlan, Rhyl, Trelawnyd & Gwaenysgor, and Whitford.

The runes predict that this would be a likely Labour seat so I hope our present MP James Davies (Conservative) would be parachuted to a safer place where he could continue his career.
