An invitation arrives from the Leader of Cardiff Council, Councillor Russell Goodway, to attend a dinner in honour of Leader of the House of Commons and Secretary of State for Wales, Rt. Honourable Peter Hain following a meeting of the Cardiff Business Club. My two favourite people! Clearly, Peter Hain is on an upward career path. Russell Goodway, however, faces a vote of no confidence from the Cardiff Central Labour Party following the Welsh Liberal Democrat victory in the Pentwyn by-election last month. In such circumstances he will need all the friends he can get, especially if those friends are in the ascendant.
