Only a strong Plaid team of local champions can be trusted to break the Westminster bubble and deliver the best deal for the communities of Wales in a balanced ParliamentThat "balanced" sounds so much better than "hung". Plaid Cymru have opened their campaign:
My appeal is that people do not waste their vote on May the 6th on yet another Labour, Tory or Lib Dem MP to toe their London party line.It's a similar message being preached by both the SNP and the DUP. The problem is convincing their respective electorates, as the polls push back in the direction of an overall Conservative and Unionist majority, that their votes aren't indeed being wasted if their chosen candidate has no chance of forming or even influencing the next government.
I suspect the squeeze on the smaller parties is only going to get tighter as we approach election day.
