Losing the PR Battle.
Everyone knows that name recognition is the key to winning elections, so I was quite pleased to have squirreled my way into a couple of TV appearances at this weekend's Welsh Conservative Conference. I could have done with a decent slot on the stage, but I'm just not 'significant' enough to be one of the 'chosen ones'. Actually I was offered 3 minutes early on Sunday, but I had to stay home to look after little Ffion. As the cameras were rolling, and me feeling on rather good form (even if I have to say it myself), I was thinking that I was upstaging my main political opponent at the General Election, Lembit Opik. And then I discover that he and his girlfriend, Gabriela are going to appear on the revamped TV programme, 'Mr and Mrs'. It just isn't fair. I start to gain a bit of ground, and he upstages me again, by getting a major slot on ITV1. I suppose it's back to the drawing board again.
