A scoop

Just stopped talking about Radio Cymru's scoop and can get typing again.

Nia Griffith MP has thrown in the Llanelli towel.

Nice one Radio Cymru.

Now she's telling our viewers they've lost Llanelli because the Lib Dems chose a candidate from Cardiff (son of the man making headway in Newport East by the way... yes, I've done my homework).

Come on Nia... you can come up with something better than that.

It would be interesting to see if there was significantly higher turnout than in 2003 in Llanelli. In terms of personality it should have been a close two horse race. I can certainly understand a voter surge for the cause of 'anything but Labour'. However, that cannot be Nia Griffith's only excuse, given that for many people to 'Wales goes Labour' ties are still strong.

Best excuse ever. British Rail would have been proud of that.

Couldn't possibly be because of their own failings, or that they were *very* lucky to take the seat last time in the first place. Not their fault at all, no ma'am.

Nepotism seems to be creeping into the labour party, we've had Glynis Kinnock imposed on us now we've got the Dinwoody's (Spelling?), Westminster now has Hilarious Benn. We expect this from the tories (how many of Churchill's relatives have we had?) but labour is suposed to be the party of the people, or is it really Tony's cronies & Brown's pals?

I want a hung assembly, as a gesture of good will I'll provide the rope free of charge.
