Member of the National Assembly, Alun Cairns is a very good friend of mine. He's also one of the most able and hard working politicians that I know. It follows that I was very disappointed when there was such a hoohah over a silly, indeed inappropriate comment he made on a Welsh Language radio programme a few months back. It was a very poor attempt at humour, which back fired - despite Alun making an immediate retraction and apology. Upshot was that Alun was suspended as our Parliamentary Candidate for the Vale of Glamorgan, pending internal party consideration of the issue.
Well, I've just been informed that Alun Cairn's has been reinstated as our man to fight the Vale at the next Election. As the cow and the footballer said, I am over the moon. I'm going to open a bottle of wine for us to enjoy with our supper. Last night we celebrated Mrs D winning a £50 voucher for dinner at the Royal Oak in Welshpool at a local fashion show. That brought a little joy into our house. Tonight, I feel that we are flooded with joy. Welcome back Alun.
