In this week’s edition of the dugcast fae the dughoose, I am delighted to be joined online by Delyth Jewell AS/MS who gives us a perspective from Wales. Delyth sits for Plaid Cymru in the Welsh parliament, the Senedd, as the representative for the South Wales East region. We chat about the differences between the Scottish and Welsh media, and how the different experiences of Scotland and Wales have produced different responses to independence. Delyth tells us about the recent vote in the Senedd about whether Wales should be able to hold an independence referendum, the factors behind the rise in support for Welsh independence, and how people in Wales look at what is happening in Scotland with immense interest. And, of course, much more besides.
The email link that Delyth refers to in the podcast if you have a contribution to make to the debate about Wales’s future is Delyth.Jewell@senedd.wales
