Quote of the day

How democratic is it to hold a referendum only at a time when one side believes it can win?

True Wales believes devolution is already wasting millions of pounds

We would argue that this is entirely undemocratic. Predictably, the political elite, fearful that it has little chance of winning the vote, seems to be backtracking on the referendum promised in the One Wales Agreement. We are calling for a referendum now so that we can finally settle this debate and focus on health, education and the economy - issues that really matter to the people of Wales.

"Bring it on" would appear to be the message here.
