Two hugely important issues on Dragon's Eye tonight. And both of them challenging the horrible belief that underpins the Welsh Labour Party that 'Government' is all powerful, is always right, and not open to any form of independent opinion. The first issue was the refusal of the Assembly Government to establish an 'Independent' advocacy service for children. The hugely respected Sir Ronald Waterhouse launched an astonishing attack on the Assembly Government. He said he was scandalised, thought that the Government was afraid of exposure, and that the Assembly Government's 'alternative' proposals to provide advocacy for children would fail. We also had Helen Mary Jones, Plaid Cymru AM, a member of one of the governing parties joining in the assault - in effect against her own party. Astonishing. I've cannot remember witnessing such a blistering attack on a Government about the way we treat our children.
And then we had Peter Hain on, launching another attack on the the underlying fundamental philosophy of Labour Assembly Government's since 1999. Of course the language was not as colourful as Sir Ronald Waterhouse's - but it was an attack on the 'freebie' strategy that has led to a bloated public sector which as Peter Hain so rightly says is stifling the private sector in Wales. Its really very odd watching Peter Hain striding around the TV studios of Wales talking so sensibly. Oh that he had said this sort of thing when he was in a position to make a difference.
As I retire to my bed, with the glint of the Dragon's Eye still boring into the receptive part of my brain, I have never felt so certain that Wales will never be economically successful until Labour is out of office.
