Labour warned against joining Bethan Jenkins’ working group

This is a story from this morning’s Western Mail. The 26 Labour AMs were apparently e-mailed yesterday to tell them not to get involved with Bethan Jenkins’ discussions on forming a “Yes” campaign for greater powers at the Welsh Assembly.

Bethan has blogged this morning to emphasise she doesn’t believe this is a party political issue and just wants politicians to start joining a conversation that’s already underway in the country.

I think the idea of a “Yes” campaign will prove popular with the Plaid faithful but I think this e-mail demonstrates that Labour are concerned that it will appear to divide their party…
