Today's the day!

So, finally, we'll find out in a few hours what the All Wales Convention thinks regarding a referendum on further powers for the Welsh Assembly. I can't wait, and I for one will be fully committed to a yes campaign when the time comes. BUT - I still think from listening to the media today that there is a huge job to do in explaining to the people of Wales what exactly they would be voting for. There is huge confusion at present about the powers of Westminter and the Assembly, and this needs to be tackled as soon as possible. That's the only way to truly engage and connect with the Welsh electorate, and develop a new style of politics in Wales. One that involves every citizen.

The one thing that's clear is that the current system isn't working and that things need to change. But saying that isn't enough. The yes campaign now needs to mobalize and set up a proper campaign. Who's with me?!
