Betsan Powys | 16:27 UK time, Friday, 2 May 2008

Through the haze I think I remember rightly that the BBC graphics team plumped for grey to denote councils in No Overall Control.

On an anything-but-grey night in Wales, the map by now is inappropriately and almost exclusively grey.

Only four of Wales' twenty two councils are held outright by one party: Monmouth (Con), Vale of Glamorgan (Con), Rhondda Cynon Taf (Lab) and Neath Port Talbot (Lab).

Can't wait for the fall-out from the first meeting of the newly-christened WLGRA. (R stands for ... rainbow).

And as attention turns to London's 'Boris' and 'Ken', you may have spotted that in Wales 'Ron' (along with his fellow newly-elected independent councillors in Caerphilly) is exactly where he's wanted to be for a long time: holding the balance of power between Labour and Plaid.

And would you believe that the BBC's Broadcasting House, the Royal Welsh Showground and the Senedd are now all in Lib Dem held wards.

Boy those party press officers will spin anything ..!
