The party's over

St David's Day is finally over at Westminster - after a week of celebration.

Plaid Cymru held their bash in the Commons last night, complete with harpist and nibbles.

There were more ambassadors in the room than at an old Austin showroom, checking out progress on "nation-building" as spelled out by parliamentary leader Elfyn Llwyd in a speech interrupted by the division bell.

Scotland's First Minister Alex Salmond delivered a witty speech, gently teasing Plaid over their inability to celebrate St David on his actual day.

Labour faces were thin on the ground - it appears that coalition with Plaid really does end at the Severn Bridge.
