Practising what he preaches
Eleven days ago Brynle Williams let rip at Welsh farmers who had failed to vaccinate their cattle against the extremely unpleasant Bluetongue virus.
"The vaccine has been made available to all farmers across Wales so it is vital they use it" he railed.
I assume he meant them to use it on their cattle - but it turns out he's in fact used it on himself. During the debate on Bluetongue in the Senedd, the Shadow Rural Affairs Minister revealed that he has somehow contrived to inject himself with the vaccine, which means that in another nineteen days or so he'll be immune to the disease. It's no recommendation, he says, but I'm still here.
The bad news is that he may suffer a bit of high fever, excessive salivation, swelling of the face, neck and tongue, even a touch of frothing at the mouth. Perhaps he should be tested.
The good news is that his tongue will be truly on message.
