Plaid leader's Euro appeal to Lib Dem voters

Plaid Cymru's leader Leanne Wood has made a direct appeal to what she calls 'disaffected Liberal Democrat supporters' to vote for her party in this year's European election.

She points out that the Lib Dems have struggled to win support in European elections. The party has never returned a Welsh MEP to the European Parliament.

Leanne Wood says Lib Dems who feel 'betrayed' by decisions taken by their party since forming a coalition government with the Conservatives should find a 'natural home' in Plaid.

I would appeal to all European progressives and in particular to disaffected Welsh Lib Dems not to stay at home in the forthcoming European elections. Staying at home will diminish an already low voter turn out to levels that would only allow the right win Europhobes to benefit.

Plaid Cymru is building a green, progressive and outward-looking Wales.

Anyone sharing this vision, whether or not they have supported us in the past, has a natural home in the Party of Wales.
