    Plaid Cymru Conference Centre is Labour success!

    Plaid Cymru is holding its conference at the Galeri in Caernarfon - a venue funded by Labour's Welsh Assembly Government - more evidence of Welsh Labour creating a confident and outward-looking Wales. Local Plaid MP Hywel Williams has congratulated everyone involved in making it a success.

    Only thanks we've had from Plaid I think...

    Hosting a Plaid conference, in Wales, is evidence of an outward-looking Wales? What topsy-turvy world is this?

    By the way - the venue was funded by the taxpayer, not the Welsh Assembly Government. The Assembly Government decided on the disposition of funds.

    Funding a conference centre might be better left to business unless you think there's a market failure, somehow, in venue provision, or that business conference facilities are a public good. Is that what you think?

    The reference to an outward-looking Wales was to the Galeri, not to the Plaid conference. It is, in fact, a Creative Enterprise Centre. I guess the Plaid Conference isn't big enough for a conference centre.
