Glyn can hear Alwyn and Alun spluttering . I don't know about Alun, but Alwyn doesn't splutter, Alwyn is a gentleman and gents don't do spluttering!
Why should I splutter? Because Glyn thinks that a referendum on additional powers for the Assembly should be delayed until 2015 and Glyn is going to tell Sir Wyn so!
I am not that bothered about the referendum. Because anybody who has read the Government of Wales Act (2006) should know that the referendum is a delaying tactic rather than a means of enabling Wales to have further powers.
The powers that the Government of Wales Act Referendum will give the Assembly are already available through LCO's, and will continue to be available if a referendum is held and lost tomorrow!
All that a yes vote in a referendum will do is make the system simpler.
A Yes vote won't give the Assembly further potential powers than it has now, a No vote won't stop the Assembly from gaining those powers. Rather than splutter at Glyn's 2015 proposal, or Hain's 2012 idea or UKIP's 2999 referendum date, my attitude is hold this waste of public expenditure referendum at your leisure, the result will be just clerical not constitutional.
The GoW Act is a statutory pissing competition - who gets pissed off with the convoluted system first; Westminster or Cardiff Bay? I suspect that London will lose in the end, but surely all will agree that the governance of our country (be it Wales or Britain) should be based on higher ideals than puerility!
Of course, I do have a problem with Plaid's attitude to the referendum. Adam Price has said that after the referendum is won Plaid will, at long last, accept that the next stage in the evolution of devolution will be campaigning for independence.
The 2006 GoW Act is on the statute book, all the powers are there for the asking, the referendum is an irrelevance, a delaying tactic, a clerical nuisance!
CAMPAIGN FOR INDEPENDENCE NOW!!!
