Dragon's Eye back with Adrian Masters, a man of gentle demeanor and a probing inquisitor in the Vaughan Roderick mould. Looking forward to seeing him bare his dragon's teeth during the series. Hope its not me or my party he's sinking them into.
To start the new series off, who else but Lord Elis Thomas, Presiding Officer of the National Assembly. He dismissed the two twentieth century Prince of Wales investitures as political stunts, and compared these great historical events with a Royal day at the races. Hard for me to judge, because I've never been to a race meeting. Coincidentally, I'm putting that right on Saturday, when we go to Chepstow Races for a birthday party. Perhaps we had better wear clothes suitable for attending an investiture.
Next up was the impact of the failure of Icelandic banks on councils and other public bodies in Wales. Huge issue - but nothing new. Paul Murphy was on, and he had nothing to say of any significance. Its difficult to find a Welsh angle, when an issue has been all over the network news throughout the day.
And finally there was the row about a 'Team GB' football team in the London Olympics. Nothing new here either. The British Olympic Committee are committed to a GB team, while no-one in Wales wants one. We knew that. Now if Seb Coe had been on, and been asked about what he said when told that we Welsh didn't like the idea, it would have been far more interesting.
