Confusing the public
What happens to old Assembly Members?
Some turn into must-read bloggers, some into 'colourful' authors, some vow to make it back next time. One awaits a letter from the Assembly telling him to take down the sign outside his office that states he's still an AM.
John Marek has incurred the wrath of the sitting Wrexham AM, Lesley Griffiths and the Assembly itself for 'misleading the public'. If only he'd known they were that worried about it, he'd have painted over it already he tells the Evening Leader. Actually he says he'd 'have had the sign painted over' which isn't quite the same thing as going out there with his paintbrush but you get the picture. Or in this case, the blank, white sign.
But wait: there's more. Guess who'll be officially working in Mr Marek's old Regent Street office from December 3rd? North Wales AM Eleanor Burnham.
The crucial question is whether the paint will have dried in time for her to have it re-painted ... again?
