Bat out of Hell!
Brian Gibbons, the Labour AM for Aberavon, leapt up today at the end of a slanging match between Labour and Plaid Cymru over the record of Rhondda Cynon Taff Council, to prove that he is in touch with popular culture, though not from this decade. Addressing the Minister he started, "As Meatloaf said, 'you have taken the words right out of my mouth.'" It is arguable that Meatloaf was not thinking about the revenue support grant for Welsh Councils when he sang those words but Brian did succeed in getting our attention. I look forward to other 1980s rock stars featuring in future contributions in the chamber. Bonnie Tyler anybody?
