This brings me on to an intriguing situation in North Wales.
Since EU integration, there are around 6,000 Poles in the Wrexham constituency, currently held by
Forward Wales independent candidate John Marek.
Depending on their residency (and, as I understand it, the vast majority will be entitled to vote now that they are settled here) they could swing things John's way again on May 3.
There is already a Polish social club in the cellar of Marek's constituency office, by all accounts!
If the Poles don't swing it for Marek, then Wrexham could be the only seat in Wales that Labour will gain on election night.
However if they have the right to vote, the Poles are a people who truly value democracy. I certainly hope that the Assembly poll is one the Polish settlers themselves will participate in.
My grandfather, who fled three concentration camps in a pair of postman's trousers to come to Wales, would certainly be using his ballot to its full effect this May were he still here to witness the contest.
I understand Plaid Cymru have even produced Polish-language election literature in Carmarthenshire - particularly Llanelli; more areas where the Polish vote could really count.
