I am about to go off on a long weekend in Ireland and I am still updating my website. How sad is that? I was in the Assembly yesterday interviewing for the Chair of ELWa. Work is starting on security measures in Crickhowell House shortly. This is a legacy of the invasions of the Assembly chamber during the Iraq war. It includes redesigning the entrance to the building so as to make it more difficult to smuggle weapons in and putting up bars and a glass barrier between the audience and the AMs in the chamber. Nobody is really happy about this last measure but we have been forced to follow police advice. It will make us feel even more than usual that we are in a goldfish bowl or a zoo. Let us hope that behaviour does not deteriorate accordingly.
