A Victory for the People - Breaking News......

http://welshremembrancer.blogspot.com/2008/01/hain-hes-gone-hes-gone-hes-gone-at-last.html


Peter Hain, Secretary of State for Wales and Minister for Works and Pensions, has resigned. It was inevitable that he should resign as his position had become untenable. We shed no crocodile tears as the people deserve politicians who are not only competent but have integrity and are morally beyond reproach. Although the ramifications of the story have yet to be investigated and brought to light there are sufficient indications already which give rise to suspicion and unease. It now behoves Gordon Brown to select a new Secretary of State for Wales (if we are to have one) and his choice of a suitably qualified member of the government is in question. In a "government of all the talents" may we suggest Adam Price MP/AS as the successor to Mr Hain? God forbid that it should be Don Touhig MP. It is doubtful however that Mr Brown will make a decision which is controversial and open to criticism.

It's PAUL MURPHY : now we wait and see.
Time will tell.....

Adam Price in a government of talents? Yeah, right.

And I think you have been harsh on Peter Hain. I don't like the man myself but he has done more for devolution than anybody!

Just await the verdict in the police investigation.

We already have the verdict from the Electoral Commission on Adam Price.

Guilty as charged.

These anons should get their facts straight and investigate the true situation which was that the 3 Plaid MPs were informed that they could go ahead with the advertising, and later found out they were wrongly informed.
