No go.

The four Assembly Members who tabled a motion calling on the Assembly Commission to keep things as they are with regard to the bilingual record of proceedings in the chamber seemed to be refusing to back down. There was indeed a compromise but it wasn't one they would accept.

Then it sounded as though they were backing down from the barricades, before revealing that they were going for it after all.

Alun Davies, Rhodri Glyn Thomas, Paul Davies and Jenny Randerson are tabling another motion which says this:

"The National Assembly for Wales notes the decision of the Assembly Commission on Monday 21 September to undertake a review of language provision in the Assembly and to produce a formal bilingual record in 3-10 days rather than the 24 hours as at present.

The National Assembly for Wales is disappointed with both this decision and the way in which this issue has been managed by the Commission.

The National Assembly for Wales therefore resolves that the status quo is maintained whilst any review takes place and that the review is conducted openly and transparently with AMs and others given the opportunity to comment and take part".

I thought it was all over. It isn't ... for now.
