ON Wednesday the leaders of Plaid Cymru and the SNP stood together to outline what role they could play should there be a hung Parliament.
Proudly they declaimed how the ‘Celtic Nations’ could hold the balance of power, and what they could gain from such a position.
But, it was noticeable that there was a nation (okay, region) missing from the so-called Celtic fringe.
Even the more radical Plaid Cymru and SNP supporters couldn’t share the stage with politicians from Northern Ireland!
One party official was heard to mutter: “We’re mad, but we’re not THAT mad!”
