Bosnia bound?

Betsan Powys | 00:01 UK time, Wednesday, 11 February 2009

Perhaps it's the thought of having to travel up to North Wales, leading the All Wales Convention, that has put Sir Emyr Jones Parry off the job.

Perhaps it's something else.

Perhaps he intends, somehow, to keep sitting in the Chair for some time at least but a story that was spotted here and is confirmed here suggests Sir Emyr may be off to Bosnia.

Now if that's news to you, you might be interested to know that we're getting the distinct impression it could be news to one or two key people in the Welsh Assembly Government too.

Neither I nor my colleagues have yet spoken to Sir Emyr but he would, presumably, have had some say in the matter before his name was put forward for the post of EU Special Representative in Bosnia. Whether the position is eventually offered to him or not then - and we're told we'll know in around two weeks' time - he was clearly up for it. That, in itself, is significant.

If he is offered the post and accepts it, wouldn't that leave the All Wales Convention holed below the waters it is testing?
