Shock News - The Pope goes to a Catholic Church!
Why on earth does the media take any notice of stories that have absolutely no traction at all. Last week there was an attempt to build up tension before next week's vote in the National Assembly for Wales about whether to trigger the referendum on law making powers for the National Assembly. It was ridiculous. Supposedly the Liberal Democrats and the Conservatives were thinking of abstaining - thus condemning the trigger vote to defeat. Oh Yeah! There was never the slightest chance that the 40 votes needed wouldn't be there. Then we have the story that an agreement has been negotiated. No idea what's been agreed, but I'd wager that nothing fundamental has changed from a week ago. Lets just hope that there are at least one or two speeches that do justice to the importance of the vote.
