I heard whisperings the other day that the All Wales Convention in its consideration of the future governance of Wales was taking into account the current economic climate and that the report that comes back could very well have found an appetite amongst the people of Wales for more powers at this end of the M4...but not in the midst of a recession.
If this is the case then surely the coalition would rethink holding a referendum. One then has to ask what might Plaid Cymru do in that situation.
One of the proviso's of the One Wales agreement was that there would be referendum before 2011...could Plaid afford another such climbdown in the wake of the language LCO and the top-up fees (and such a public climbdown at that?)
Just some food for thought...
Budget week coming up.
