    I have Plaid losing eight (8) deposits: Alyn & Deeside, Brecon & Radnorshire, Cardiff Central, Cardiff North, Delyn, Monmouth, Newport East and Newport West. Did I get one of these wrong?

    Thanks,

    Ian.

    • Roger Scully

      You were right, Ian. Apparently the 5.0% in Cardiff Central was a rounded-up figure (from something like 4.96); they lost the desposit by 12 votes. I’ve corrected the post. Thanks for drawing my attention to this.
