Another in November said: “Jac o’ the North says that following a successful first meeting the details of a new Welsh political party should be revealed in March 2018 once they are ironed out”.
But there has been no sign.
Mr Jones had booked a room for 50-60 people at the Belle Vue Royal Hotel, on Marine Terrace in Aberystwyth for 1pm, November 4 for his original event founding the new independence party.
On Jac o’ the North he set out the party’s principles: “Anyone who thinks Wales needs another socialist party, or a bigger third sector, or more Englandandwales organisations, really has nothing to contribute”.
But the hotel sent a message to Mr Jones notifying him: “With regards to … concerns, we have now cancelled your meeting room with full refund of payment”.
He then advertised on his blog a new venue, with the words: “I am delighted to announce that a meeting has been arranged for November 18th in Aberystwyth to discuss the formation of a new political party to defend Wales’ interests”.
Mr Jones may have blamed our Editor, but he has used ‘lies’ before in describing him.
In the past he has called Mr Parry “a lying bastard” and dubbed him “vermin”.
Mr Jones said on Jac o’ the North: “That lying bastard Phil Parry never misses an opportunity to twist or invent ‘facts’”.
He continued: “He’s a mouthpiece for the Labour Party (many of The Eye articles have been about the misdeeds of the Labour Welsh Government) and often ‘trails’ stories for Llais y Sais (we never write ‘trails’ for other organisations)“.
Yet other facts ARE true about the founder of this new Welsh independence party.
The picture on Mr Jones’s blog of a man pointing a gun at the camera was the leader of the FWA, Cayo Evans.
The FWA was a paramilitary Welsh nationalist organisation, formed at Lampeter in Ceredigion in 1963, and its objective was to establish an independent Welsh republic.
It has been reported that the Official IRA (OIRA) had given or sold most of its weapons to the FWA as part of its turn away from political violence, in the 1960s.
But Mr Jones has praised the leader of the FWA as a “friend” and “comrade”, and has published the picture of him toting a handgun.
These words may come back to haunt Mr Jones, and it is obvious that creating a new party is problematic – as seen at a UK level by the chatter about the creation of another political party.
This time a centrist one.
The entrepreneur Simon Franks has been named as the backer of the new venture which would reshape political alignment in the UK, yet pundits have rushed to pour scorn on his prospects.
It seems Mr Jones may also face problems, although of a different nature.
