A thought for Easter

Here's the Western Mail's 'thought for the day:'

"A compromise is the art of dividing a cake in such away that everyone believe he has the biggest piece" - Ludwig Erhard

I wonder how Bethan Jenkins, Leanne Wood and Plaid Cymru's party members would respond to Herr Erhard's words of wisdom.

How does this philosophy fit in with the One Wales coalition?

We've suffered endless statements from IWJ and his closest allies about the need for compromise as Plaid look to cooperate with Labour in Cardiff Bay.

But does anybody believe that it is Plaid who is stuffing into the biggest portion of the One-Wales Easter egg this weekend? Or do Ieuan and his fellow Plaid ministers simply have egg on their faces?

Pasg hapus iawn!

Isn't compromise to part with something you want to keep in return for something you want from another party?

I can't see anything that Labour would want to give to Plaid, nor get from Plaid in return.

And I can't see Plaid wanting anything from Labour other than control of power.

Empty words by Plaid? Probably - just sticking in a word or two like "compromise" to sound like they actually have a role to play in government. Unfortunately not at the moment. Labour is still the bigger "alpha male no-one likes" character in the group, holding the lolipop just out of Plaid's reach.

Let's hope that Plaid will exit puberty bigger and wiser than the bullish Labour party

Answer: Neither.

Next you'll be asking if the Pope shits in the woods or are bears Catholic.
