Through the keyhole
So the Assembly Government plans to close its office - "mini embassy" to quote the Welsh Conservatives - in the Chrysler Building in New York. You can add Paris, Amsterdam, Dublin, Milan and Munich to the list.
Offices in Sydney, China, the United States and Brussels live to fight another day. Who knows what happens to others in Dubai, Hong Kong, Bangalore, Delhi, and Tokyo.
But that reminds me: who lives in an office like this?
The answer is Cheryl Gillan, when she's in Cardiff and her colleagues in the Wales Office.
On the wall of the office block just opposite the Assembly is a plaque that gives the name of the building - Discovery House. The only other plaque is the one that tells visitors where to find the Consulate of Iceland. First-time visitors to the Wales Office are told that if they've got to the little Italian coffee shop on the corner, they've gone too far.
At least you hope that those who've got lost trying to find Discovery House appreciate the irony ...
