    Blog Draws Blood...

    The Opposition got a bit worked up about yesterday's Silly Season post. One of the Lib Dems mentioned the blog, claiming I clearly did not see a debate on the WDA as important. Duh!!! I think debating the WDA is very important - it will allow us to demonstrate that we are serious about abolishing the quango state. Anyway, I got in after that:

    I am delighted to know that my blog is so well read on that side of the Chamber. However, they clearly did not read it closely enough. I congratulate the Business Minister for tabling a debate on the WDA. What I said was a Pontcanna issue was the scrutiny of the minutiae of what is going on in respect of the WDA. They are not interested in the real issues and in making the WDA more accountable. Those are the issues that we are interested in on this side of the Chamber. We are delighted that the WDA is being abolished and we can debate that properly next week.

    I'm pleased to see that the Western Mail got that right this morning.
