Wales goes to the polls?

I've been amazed at just how little general coverage the referendum in Wales today has received here in Scotland ...

... and it's not just the 'fact' that a referendum is taking place, but there's been practically zero-discussion about 'why' it's actually taking place --- and, the bottom line has to be, that it is only happening because of the so-called "One Wales" coalition that has run Wales for the last 4-years. That coalition being between Labour and Plaid Cymru.

That no one (apparently?) seems to think there are lessons or parallels here for Scotland to learn from is beyond me?

And that no one seems to be actively discussing such a possibility post May 5th, right here in Scotland, also seems somewhat bizarre :-(
