This week Plaid Cymru revealed their new Shadow Cabinet. Leanne Wood described it as “an excellent, strong team”. It would be hard to argue with that assessment. The Plaid Cymru group is full of intelligent, eloquent AMs who have a lot to offer as they hold the Welsh Government to account and propose legislation. However, the decision to share portfolios among every member of the group brings Welsh democracy back to a difficulty that Plaid themselves had started to resolve.

The most recent Plaid Cymru front bench had just five AMs. Of course, this does mean that there more >>

With the May elections done the referendum campaigns have swiftly become inexorable. The noise promises that the four weeks to go will feel long and heavy. If political stance is filtered through personal experience then the view from someone who was there last time for Harold Wilson's referendum of 1975 is going to be distinct. Even more so when the same viewer two years earlier had travelled to cold-war Berlin in nine or ten lorries over two days, confident of work.

In the event the finding of work took three hours. Instructed by a weary supervisor to head to more >>

Just a few weeks ago, on the eve of Assembly elections, I joined around three-hundred other people at the Reclaim the Power (RtP) protest camp. The camp was next to Merthyr Tydfil's notorious Ffos-y-Frân opencast coalmine. RtP's message was clear: End Coal Now! Burning fossil fuels is of course one of the main drivers of climate change. The UK-wide RtP network allied with local residents the United Valley's Action Group. Breathing smoke, a Welsh dragon led more than 300 people in red boiler-suits in a mass trespass of Ffos-y-Frân, closing the mine for 12 hours. The occupation ended voluntarily more >>

SHADOWS In a sense, this is a follow-up to my previous post, due to the fact that more information has come to hand on the behaviour of ‘Mill Bay Homes' and those it employs. But before going into that I'd like to clarify a little more the status of this curious outfit. In my previous

BACKGROUND In recent months I have written a number of times about Pembrokeshire Housing and its alleged ‘subsidiary', Mill Bay Homes. First with Social Housing, Time to End This Lunacy; then Mill Bay Homes, Tai Ceredigion, Answers Needed; next in Shorts & Updates for St. David's Day (scroll down); and most recently in Housing Associations

As you know, I detest the Labour Party in general and its ‘Welsh' branch with a special vehemence. My contempt for Labour is due primarily to the damage Labour has done to Wales over the past century, summed up in my post Why I Detest The ‘Welsh' Labour Party. But my contempt for the Labour

In my previous post I told you that I was going to vote for Independent Louise Hughes as my constituency AM, and that's what I did. She didn't win, nobody expected her to win, but she finished fifth in a seven-horse race, above the Lib Dem and Green candidates; the second of those – and

On Tuesday morning I did a post-election seminar at the Wales Millennium Centre. I gave a presentation about the results, and evidence from the 2016 Welsh Election Study. I was then joined by Catrin Haf Jones (of ITV-Cymru Wales) who chaired – with her usual aplomb – the Q&A session.

You can see the videos of the presentation, and the Q&A, here. A PDF file of the slides is available to download here.

The up-dated figures – the most recent figures are for the post-election wave of the 2016 Welsh Election Study; sampling for that was conducted on 6-22 May, with a sample size of 3,234.

Looking close, isn't it? Although it is possible that that is in part because nearly all of the polls, and all of the recent ones, have been internet polls. Across Britain as a whole, telephone polls are currently tending to give Remain a rather clearer lead.

Just a fairly brief up-date on a few matters.

First of all, the Wales Governance Centre organised a post-election seminar at the Wales Millennium Centre on Tuesday. I gave a presentation, which both looked at the election results in detail and also presented the very first results from the post-election voter survey conducted by the 2016 Welsh Election Study. We then had a Q&A session, chaired – with her usual aplomb – by Catrin Haf Jones of ITV-Cymru Wales. Anyway, for the benefit of those of you who couldn't make it but might still be interested, we filmed the session. I'll more >>

A few months prior to the Assembly election I published a piece which looked at the performance of YouGov polls in Wales in comparison to election results.

All That is Solid…

As I observed, during the years since YouGov started polling regularly in Wales, we have had several opportunities to compare their final pre-election vote intention figures with the actual results. The general pattern, it appeared, has been for the Labour party to do less well in elections than in the final poll – and particularly so in lower turnout elections. By contrast, the Conservative party seemed mostly to have outperformed more >>
