Letter: Plaid missing might of Wigley.

Byline: Charles Thomas

S4C's recently shown documentary about Dafydd Wigley, arguably the Party of Wales' greatest ambassadorial asset over the years, whilst not particularly revealing, did reinforce just how much of a loss his premature retirement represents to the party he served so diligently.

Under fence-sitting president Dafydd Iwan Jones, with his brother Alun Ffred Jones comfortably on board the Cardiff gravy train, the once revered and respected Party of Wales now lacks clout, direction and credence. During the next few days, the twosome will doubtless be seen traipsing the grounds of the Faenol Eisteddfod communicating bonhomie, trying their inexperienced hand at recruiting and assuring those who do not know better that the Party of Wales is indeed in safe hands.

My message to the Jones Brothers is straightforward; 'as neither of you is clearly up to the job, both of you should go quickly, or quickly go even".Dafydd
