Elfynometer temperature rising

If Plaid Cymru AMs feel their ears burning it may be because the party's parliamentary leader has been briefing the media at Westminster.

Elfyn Llwyd's message - don't rush into an early referendum to give the Welsh Assembly full law-making powers.

"I personally believe we need to get this system working - and get this legislation flowing through with proper scrutiny.

"Rushing through and saying it has got to be a referendum in 2011 - I don't actually sign up to that. I prefer to concentrate now on making sure the legislative process works without a hitch. That's the priority."

He added: "I don't think it's useful talking about it every five minutes. We are not referendumites, we are legislators."

Elfyn Llwyd may not have signed up to a referendum in or before 2011, but his party has. He did acknowledge that he may get one or two phone calls from Cardiff later today.
