I am quietly confident that the next AM for Aberconwy will be Plaid's Gareth Jones. There has been some speculation that Conservative candidate Dylan Jones-Evans
could win the seat. This seemed to be a distinct possibility in the early part of the campaign, but from what I hear Euron Hughes the Liberal Democrat is getting a good reception on the doorstep and is taking votes from both Labour and the Tories.
If Gareth fails to win in these circumstances I will be surprised and, from a partisan point of view, I will be disappointed. However that disappointment would be eased a bit by the certainty that if Dylan or Euron were elected the people of Aberconwy would have a much better representatives in Cardiff Bay than we have in the sitting AM who is given this damning end of term report by the Western Mail:
Denise Idris Jones, Conwy, Labour
Comment: Very low calibre. How on earth did she get the party nomination in the first place?
