I was going to have an early night - but stayed up to watch Dragon's Eye because the Beeb had been advertising an item about who follows Rhodri Morgan as Leader of the Wales Labour Party, and First Minister of the National Assembly. This is a matter of great interest to anyone involved in Welsh politics. So I tuned in for all the latest twists and turns in what is bound to be an bloody and vicious contest. Preamble for the revelations to come was an interview with Rhodri confirming that he is standing down next year.
Then it was on to the excitement and juicy news, which makes Dragon's Eye such compulsive viewing. Anticipation reaching fever pitch when Adrian told us he was going to interview all the runners and riders. First up, Leighton Andrews - who ran for cover without a word and a face like thunder. Next up, Carwyn Jones who smiled engagingly and said he had nothing to say. Then Edwina Hart had even less to say than Carwyn. Jane Davidson said for the umpteenth time that she's not interested. And Andrew Davies and Huw Lewis were not available to say anything. No reference at all to today's speculation about Eluned Morgan, MEP, which might have introduced a spark of interest. I'm going to bed asking myself what the devil the item was all about. I'll ring Edna Mopbucket tomorrow to find out whats happening. Or perhaps Miss wagstaffe's new informant can spill the beans.
