Home Rule for Wales

I’m still a bit stunned at the referendum result:
Yes: 517,132 No: 297,380.
That’s 63.5% in favour of streamlining the Welsh lawmaking process.
Some remarkable results, especially in the North East where both Wrexham and Flintshire voted resoundingly in favour with stunning swings from 1997.
Here’s the results and the BBC’s analysis.
And Carwyn says: “An old nation came of age”
I’m very lucky to live in these times – the first real Home Rule for Wales since Glyndŵr..
Cool or what?
