You can take your pick of particularly awful news in or about Wales at the moment there plenty of it around.
So here goes, the news pilots for ITV Wales have been scrapped by the new Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt, it’s not a surprise the Tories were against them from the start and they want to introduce some sort of City TV model across the UK, so it looks like we will end up with just BBC Wales to provide all our news in future – eat your heart out President Castro.
Tory’ headbanger in chief’ David Davies in the new chair of the Welsh Affairs Select Committee at Westminster, another own goal for the Conservatives in Wales and you have to ask what geniuses made that a reality?
WAG press people are Grand Masters at finding the silver lining in any bad situation and rather than commenting on the nasty stats on poverty, low wages, elderly population needs that the latest Office of National Statistics report on the regions show, WAG highlights instead the 16% rise in average income over the past few years - well done folks.
It says a lot that barmy Lib Dem Peter Black is now the voice of reason following his warning about his UK Party leader Nick Clegg continuing to diss Wales over the referendum, the Barnett Formula Review and holding Election on the same day – is Peter going to stop wearing silly ties as well?
Plaid Cymru’s new president is Jill Evans, she of course is Plaid MEP and will replace Dafydd Iwan when he steps down – are Plaid slowly running out of well known enough individuals to fill all the non jobs the party has to offer.
And if all that wasn’t enough you can now give the new Government (and the previous one for running up the bill) some cover for when they start squeezing the budget until the pips come out and pretending to share your pain by suggesting what cuts should be made in their ‘window dressing exercise’ about defect reduction – I almost can't cope with the excitement.
