Tame start to proceedings. You'll note that we predicted this one a long time ago.
BUT. Last time this was a majority of around 8,000. Now it's just over 2,000. That's a drop of 18% (or 27% since the General Election).
Unfortunately, I don't think Islwyn is a seat we can realistically take as a microcosm of the way Wales will vote. More to come...

Peoples Voice's leadership won't be happy, they wanted to get Irene out. They'd (unlikely but [my view]) probably had more chance if they'd given Plaid a clean run.
