Dafydd Trystan speaks in London

Last night I had the pleasure of joining the London branch of Plaid Cymru in welcoming Dafydd Trystan, parliamentary candidate for the Cynon Valley, and former chief executive of the party to the London Welsh Centre on Gray's Inn Road.

Dafydd spoke excellently for around 45 minutes, giving his views on trends on both the UK and Welsh political scenes and then outlining his plans for the Cynon Valley, where he was born and raised, and which he hopes to win at the next General Election.

That was followed by a further 45 minutes of lively debate amongst members, discussing ways and means of developing the party, suggestions for party strategy and campaigning ideas - including, of course, the contribution that can be made from members based in London.

An excellent curtain-raiser for next week's National Conference in Aberystwyth.
