Going for Gold

And I am not talking about expanding mining operations in Dolaucothi.

Now that the new Welsh government is in place, the Assembly Coalition is all set for the task of developing and implementing the programmes and policies hammered out between Rhodri and Ieuan. The key areas of attention will be Health, Economic Development, Transport, Housing, Education and the Welsh Language. In order to gain (Plaid) and regain (Labour) trust and credibility in the political process and policy implementation in Wales the two consenting partners have now to work responsibly and consistently for the success of Welsh governance in the exclusive interests of the people of Wales. I am optimistic that this will be the case. There is no place for scepticism and pessimism in this new political environment, and the people of yesterday have no place in the new progressive venture of Welsh politics. The atmosphere needs to be one of trust, respect and co-operation for the benefit of the people of Wales. This will result in the creation of a country to be proud of, with an enhanced self-assurance and a leader in social and economic innovation.
