Just watching Dragon's Eye. My first look at Sir Emyr Jones Parry. Liked the look of him. I really liked the way he responded to Labour MP, Don Touhig's childish accusations that he might need some navigational aids to find his way around Wales. And then Don Touhig was wheeled out to make even sillier comments. He really does make it obvious that devolution is a dish that doesn't appeal to him one bit.
But back to the smooth, ultra relaxed Sir Emyr. He 'admitted' that he had thought it incongruous that Wales was not granted the same powers as Scotland in 1999. Well that seemed pretty clear to me - and I agreed with him. But then he went on to emphasise that by today, he has an open mind about law making powers. I was having a bit of a job to hang onto his logic here. Perhaps he just about got away with this - which shows us what a very good diplomat he must be.
The interesting thing about this though, is that Sir Emyr thinks that expressing a clear opinion about whether the National Assembly should have law making powers is inappropriate for the Chair of the All Wales Convention. Its logical that he would think this uncertainty should also apply to the other members of his Convention. Damn! That rules me out - which is a pity. I'd rather fancied being involved in this Convention. Ah well, my own fault for being so damned opinionated. Too late to backtrack now.
