    10 years on #1

    In three months from today it will be ten years since Scotland voted yes to devolution (again). A week later, so did Wales. Just. By six thousand, seven hundred and twenty-one votes.

    Where were you? And what were you doing in the great devolution campaign? Over the next three months I am going to put up an irregular series of posts about the devolution campaign. So where were you and what were you doing for the campaign in June 1997? If it's brief, comment on this post. If it is a longer reminiscence, email me.

    Of course, I know where he was. And what he was doing. And him. And him.

    Trying to re-write history Leighton?

    The “No” campaign (under the banner 'Just Say No') was set up by two Labour Party members. Right or Wrong?

    I don't know what re-writing history has to do with it.

    There is nothing in the post that is inaccurate. Sure, two Labour members set up Just Say No - you can find a detailed account in my book Wales Says Yes!
