Scottish Lessons

In the Scottish parliament elections a few days ago, the SNP romped home to a spectacular and decisive victory. The SNP were actively promoting Scottish independence as a key policy and this should now result in a referendum on independence.

Compare this situation to the Welsh result, where our nationalist party has been terrified to discuss the I-word, and their equivocal position has been duly rewarded by the electorate. What is the point of a nationalist party if they will not promote a nationalist agenda?
Well despite this lack of leadership from our so-called political leaders, there are many in Wales (both inside and outside Plaid) who do support independence and who are prepared to discuss it and to persuade others to join the cause.
