    Dafydd El on the White Paper

    Dafydd El, the Assembly's Presiding Officer, has a pop at the proposal to give the power to write Standing Orders to the Secretary of State for the next (2007-2011) Assembly. This is in fact what happened the first time round.

    However, more important is his recognition of what the primary powers proposals in the White Paper actually mean in practice. He said, apparently, Labour "now believes, as set out in the white paper, that the National Assembly should be established as a proper parliamentary body". Putting primary powers in the new Government of Wales Bill is a fundamental step-change. I have already set out my views on the White Paper.

    The missing element in every human 'solution' is an
    accurate definition of the creature. The way we define
    'human' determines our view of self, others, relationships,
    institutions, life, and future. Important? Only the Creator
    who made us in His own image is qualified to define us
    accurately. Choose wisely...there are results.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by nature
    and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of Criteria.
    Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive characteristic
    is, and of Right ought to be, the natural foundation of his
    environments, institutions, and respectful relations to his
    fellow-man. Thus, he is oriented to a Freedom whose roots
    are in the Order of the universe.
