Sergeant Major

Betsan Powys | 17:53 UK time, Tuesday, 19 May 2009

Huw Lewis will address a fringe meeting at the TUC conference in Llandudno tomorrow. I don't think I'm giving too much away when I say the words "a break with the past" might crop up.

I wonder whether he's sent a bottle of something to Lib Dem leader Kirsty Williams? I gather he wouldn't be in Llandudno at all if she hadn't agreed that one of their group would pair with him durning any votes he might miss.

How come? Hadn't Labour whip Carl Sargeant been prepared to let him go make his pitch for the leadership? "Let's put it like this" comes the response, the whip was "being rigorous" in applying Labour group rules.

I can just imagine.
