Plaid 'an irrelevance' in election say Welsh Lib Dems, as Conservatives criticise tax policy

Welsh Liberal Democrat leader Kirsty Williams AM says Plaid Cymru are an 'irrelevance' in the General Election as they have too few MPs to have an influence.

She said that tonight's ITV Leaders' Debate is not about who will be the next Prime Minister, but who will form the next Government. Ms Williams criticises the SNP and UKIP's 'divisive' policies, says Labour's borrowing would 'risk the economy,' and the Conservatives would threaten public services by cutting too much. A vote for Plaid, says Ms Williams, is a 'wasted vote.'

Meanwhile, the Welsh Conservatives are calling on Plaid leader Leanne Wood to clarify the party's position on corporation tax, following comments made during a hustings.
