The part of the online archive of the paper that Google sent me to was a regular column in which thanks are given to party members and supporters for their financial help. The column for May 22nd included this snippet:
Our fighting fund received help from an unexpected source this week - Plaid Cymru Welsh assembly member Leanne Wood donated a handy £25
What on earth is an elected Plaid Cymru member doing giving financial support to the official mouthpiece of another party?
Doesn't Plaid Cymru have rules that prohibit all members, never mind elected members, from giving support to a party that stands in elections against it?
I have thought for some time that some on the left of the party harm Plaid by putting Socialism before Nationalism - indeed this is the main reason why I feel unable to be a party member. But even I was shocked to discover that this support for socialism is so extreme that a leading light of Plaid's left wing would go as far as giving financial backing to The Communist Party of Great Britain.
It's time for Leanne Wood and her supporters to decide where their loyalties lie. Is it with the cause of Welsh Nationalism or the cause of British Communism?
