Welsh Labour and Plaid Cymru have released a ‘joint’ statement following today’s talks aimed at breaking the deadlock in appointing a leader.

The statement, which, as of Friday evening has only appeared on Welsh Labour’s website says;

“We have had several meetings today and they’ve been very helpful in establishing ways of working together in the future.

We are confident that we can find a way forward that will put in place a stable government for Wales during the next week. We will continue to work over the weekend, and the intention is to restart formal negotiations Monday.

Because it is important to maintain these conversations on a confidential basis, we will not make any further comment at this time.”

The talks are taking place amid the fallout of this weeks vote to find a new leader, Labour fully expected Carwyn Jones to be re-elected into the position however, Plaid Cymru, the Tories and Assembly newbies UKIP all decided to rip up the script and throw their full weight behind Plaid Leader Leanne Wood, both polled 29 votes and deadlock ensued!

Both sides have been throwing buns at each other over the last couple of days accusing each other of arrogantly trying to get its leader elected.

A couple of ‘seasoned’ Assembly hacks who tend to get ‘the nod’ ahead of the rest are suggesting Carwyn will be installed as leader early next week.
