    New poll launched...

    Some people don't like referendums. So now's the chance to make it clear whether you want the people of Wales to have a say on more powers for the Assembly, as my new poll launches. Come on, own up if you don't want a referendum!

    Referendums are the same as mob rule, they will hold this country back. They undermine our system of parliamentary
    democracy.

    Our much-maligned professional politicians are better informed than the average man (or woman)in the street and they should decide on more powers for the Assembly.Personally, I'm in favour of law-making powers.

    Hi Brian, good to hear from you.

    We now have a culture of referendums on constitutional issues, however.

    I favour law-making powers too. I think a referendum would give that more legitimacy, as you know.
