Lord Elis-Thomas on Devolution

Many apologies for PC's lack of posting in the last week or so - it's been a busy few days for us!

Yesterday though I found some time to head to the Senedd where they were (still) celebrating 10 years of devolution. As part of the celebrations pupils from schools across South Wales had come to the old chamber in Ty Hywel for a mock Assembly run by CEWC Cymru (with whom I was very impressed!).

They also got the chance to quiz the Presiding Officer, Lord Elis-Thomas, on devolution and the work of the Assembly.

After their chat I took the PO over to a quiet corner to talk about the enthusiasm for Welsh democracy, the successes of the Welsh Assembly and why, in the long term, independence is not the answer...

Hear the interview in full here.
