Political Party Woes in the UK and Ireland

As with Labour in the UK so with Fianna Fail in Ireland. Both parties are in deep water with the electorate and are suffering from a withdrawal of support in these recessionary times. Both are accused of spending the taxpayers' money wastefully and extravagantly. Both will suffer losses in the European elections. How heavily they will lose remains to be seen, but in Ireland Fianna Fail and the Greens are in alliance in government and the danger to the Greens is that they will inevitably be tainted by association and tarred with the same brush in the Irish public's estimation.
Is there a lesson here for Plaid Cymru?
