Delhi or bust?
The last Culture Minister hit the headlines when he misread the name of the winner of the Book of the Year ... before forgetting to read the "No Smoking" signs in a Cardiff Bay pub.
This one is about to hit the headlines because someone misread the time of his flight's departure from Heathrow to Delhi and meetings surrounding the Commonwealth Games. They thought it was ten at night. It was, in fact, ten in the morning. The flight had long gone when Alun Ffred Jones got to check-in and so, we presume, is the cost of that flight to the taxpayer.
Not his fault, perhaps. But not great.
To lose one Culture Minister may be regarded as a misfortune. Making the second look daft - what's the quote - "just looks careless".
