Leighton who?

Betsan Powys | 10:44 UK time, Wednesday, 1 December 2010

The Education Minister Leighton Andrews is basking in this morning's coverage by the UK press of his surprise tuition fees announcement yesterday. It's not often an announcement in the National Assembly chamber makes the front of the Daily Mail and Daily Telegraph. And despite the somewhat belligerent tone of some of the coverage (apartheid anyone?) his advisers are adamant - it shows we're doing something right, is the gist.

His mood will hopefully have only been slightly darkened by his slight misidentification on the late Wales Today bulletin last night. And doubly unfortunate that the Minister- a fanatical Cardiff City fan - shares a first name with a Swansea City legend.
