The Plaid Cymru manifesto

Plaid Cymru have done what they can to stop anyone who isn’t very determined from finding their manifesto on the web, but here’s a link.  There are echoes of several other manifestos – green jobs, avoiding Brexit with a People’s vote, improving mental health, and animal welfare among them.  But there are also some interesting further initiatives – up to forty hours free childcare, a new system of support for renters, and the possibility at least of decriminalising drugs.

It seems to me that there’s an appetite in several opposition parties for  rather more radical solutions than either Conservative or Labour have been ready to countenance.  Their critics will say that that’s because they won’t have to pass these policies in practice, but the support for parties which are trying out unfamiliar ideas should at least be an indicator of a change in the political wind.
