Ukip's Nathan Gill: 'Plaid may take Ynys Mon seat'

By Ian Lang, Ynys Môn

Ukip's Nathan Gill is speculating that Plaid may well take the Ynys Môn seat, with his party coming in third after Labour.

Plaid Cymru are saying they believe it's going to be close, with much depending on the vote in Holyead.

It could hinge on how many Labour voters take a punt on UKIP - but one observer is saying that, at the moment, the Conservatives seem to be doing better than UKIP.

Meanwhile the Liberal Democrat candidate Mark Rosenthal is admitting that it's not likely to be his night, but is still hoping to pick up votes.

But, as one party helper said: "The night is still young."

Welsh UKIP defector rejoins Conservatives

A Welsh defector to UKIP has returned to the Conservative party - less than six months after leaving it.

William Routley had been welcomed to UKIP at its Welsh conference in December by the party's leader Nigel Farage.

Now the former Newport councillor says that he thinks the only way to secure controls on immigration and a renegotiation of Britain's membership of the European Union is by voting Conservative. But he told Political Editor Adrian Masters that he has no regrets about his move.

In terms of Mr Routley's membership: we would say that whilst it is always unfortunate to lose a member, winning votes is what matters, and UKIP are on-course to win millions of votes in this election.

What I take heart from is the fact that despite being in government for 17 years, despite what we've seen happening unfortunately to our colleagues in Scotland, we remain by far the most popular choice for the people of Wales.

Carwyn Jones also said that Labour was ready to take the fight to UKIP, which appears to be on course to become a significant force in the Senedd, according to expert analysis of how people said they would vote in an Assembly election.

We are very keen to combat them by emphasising that UKIP is -when they decide what they stand for- very much a party of the right.
