CONCERNS were raised yesterday about the “worrying” delay in launching the Yes campaign for next year’s referendum on more powers for the National Assembly.If even finding a chair for the campaign has ended up as a "shambles" for them, one wonders how much confidence should then be placed in the self-same Welsh Political Establishment being able to cope with the extra real powers they're demanding?
The referendum is due to be held in just 15 weeks’ time on March 3 – yet the Western Mail understands that the informal group of Assembly politicians and others who have been meeting to discuss forming a Yes campaign has been rebuffed by a number of prominent individuals it asked to chair it.
Among the names mentioned as possible chairs of the Yes campaign are former Wales rugby international Gerald Davies and ex-BBC Wales newsreader Sara Edwards.
A source said: “There have been real problems getting a chair for the campaign. It’s a bit of a shambles.”
