For any who haven't seen it, this is the video of a discussion between Leanne Wood and Lee Waters of the IWA hosted by Prifysgol Glyndwr last week. The audience was quite small, but the quality of the questions they asked at the end more than made up for it ... and the answers weren't too shabby either.
Lee mentioned an article Leanne had recently written for Prospect magazine on poverty. That was news to me, but just click the image below to download and read it.
Leanne's article is entitled Plaid Cymru, independence and closing the wealth gap. It's always good to see the argument for independence put into the context of what we need independence for.
As Scotland's Future highlights, under the Westminster system we are locked into one of the most unequal economic models in the developed world. Since 1975 income inequality among working-age people has increased faster in the UK than in any other country in the OECD. The increasing geographical imbalance concentrates jobs, population growth and investment in London and the south east of England, but no action has been taken to address this by successive Westminster governments. The only way to change this is to take responsibility for ourselves.
