Jac o’thenorth writes: Yes, I know, it’s Christmas, the season of goodwill to all men, but it’s only a temporary distraction from the realities of life in Wales. And that life is, quite simply, colonial. The gullible among us believe that devolution has made things better. I’m at a loss to understand why anyone should believe that.
THERE SEEMED a quiet expectation in the Plaid spring conference at Cardiff that the May election will be followed by a continuation of business-as-usual in Cardiff Bay.
The big question to which everyone wants the answer is what is going to happen about the so-essential extension of Assembly powers so the political union with England is not eventually wrecked on the rocks of Labour’s constitutional non-settlement.
CARWYN JONES has often been accused of being lazy.
Those of us who have known him for a long time wonder whether that accusation is entirely fair.
And now Lib Dem leader and farmer’s wife Kirsty Williams has pointed out that there are actually TWO Carwyn Joneses.
If I were Mrs Hart, a former president of the National Union of Banking Employees, perhaps I’d start looking for a job with Lloyds Bank.
And why, the day after the result, did her agent Andrew Davies announce he was standing down from the Assembly in 2011. His excuse was that he wanted a more rounded personal life.
ELIN JONES is rapidly becoming one of the most respected AMs of any party, which raises the question of who should be the next leader of Plaid Cymru.
Edwina Hart, the second runner for the post of First Minister came under sharp attack at the Assembly press briefings.
It might amuse some of you to guess what Carwyn Jones is really thinking/saying in this photo.
A possible hint as to who would be the new leader of the Labour Party who is best fitted to serve ALL of Wales.
As we know, Edwina Hart is not the world’s leader at personal relationships.
I SOMETIMES wonder whether Counsel General and likely next First Minister Carwyn Jones exists in the same legal world as the rest of us.
