There's no doubt the Liberal Democrats have paid a heavy price in Wales for their party's decision to join forces with the Conservatives at Westminster. But with just two years before the next UK election, have they turned the corner or could things get worse for them?
Our Political Editor Adrian Masters brought together fFormer leader Lord Michael German, Assembly Member Eluned Parrott and Deputy Leader of Monmouthshire council, Phillip Hobson to try to answer that question.
Welsh Liberal Democrat Transport spokesperson Eluned Parrott says, now the Welsh Government has bought Cardiff Airport, it should publish its plans for transforming it.
– Eluned Parrott AM, Welsh Liberal Democrats
We’ve had the sound bites from Carwyn, we now know the price but we now we need to see the substance and the government’s long term plans for attracting airlines, tourists and business travellers to Cardiff Airport.
I wish the Government well in its attempts to turn the airport around, but I would have hoped by now we’d have some idea of what the government plans to do to improve the airport.
For the Welsh Liberal Democrats, there's a lot riding on today's regional pay vote in Brighton. (There are more details here.) If they succeed they'll have set their party against any attempt by the Coalition Government to introduce different public sector pay levels in different parts of the UK.
It's a major challenge too for Eluned Parrott who only became an AM last year but is leading the debate which starts at 4pm this afternoon. She told me that she wants to win over heads as well as hearts, presenting economic arguments against regional pay as well as appealing to a sense of fairness.
She and leader Kirsty Williams have also seized every opportunity to try win over senior figures in a series of formal and informal meetings. Danny Alexander, who earlier this year said he was 'keen' to see local pay, will be in the front row. Have the Welsh Lib Dems succeeded in changing his mind?
