LibDems finally catch up with Plaid!
Plaid Cymru in Montgomeryshire welcomes Mr Opik's conversion to the cause of reason and common sense concerning the present situation in Iraq. He is wrong, however, to claim that his party is the first to call for a troop withdrawal. Plaid Cymru did not support the war, voted consistently against it and has been calling for British troops to withdraw for over 3 years.
Plaid Cymru has sponsored a number of debates about Iraq in Parliament and it is only because of the amazing courage of Adam Price and other Plaid MPs in the face of open hostility from Labour and indifference from the LibDems that the issue has received the prominence it deserves.
