Bye Bye Jane

Betsan Powys | 12:09 UK time, Saturday, 11 October 2008

A quick bit of news.

Jane Davidson, thought of at one time as a possible Labour leadership candidate, has told her party in Pontypridd that she's standing down at the next Assembly election. She made it clear last year that she wouldn't be going for the leadership but told a meeting last night that she won't fight the seat in 2011.

I doubt whether she's trying to steal Mike German's thunder as he gives his farewell speech today in Clydach but all the same, it's intriguing news and means she might yet leave her mark on the leadership election.

Heading off West but hoping to hear more from her on tomorrow's Politics Show if we can track her down and if she can make it.
