Mixed Metaphor of the Week
North Wales Tory AM, Mark Isherwood, excelled in the Chamber yesterday with a mixed metaphor that I doubt if even Rhodri Morgan could surpass. Speaking on 'The Mid-term Review of Structural Funds Programmes', he said "I am concerned that some contributions from the Labour Members have led me to agree with David Prentiss, the leader of Unison, when he said that Labour was lost in a fog of spin. Like a flock of ostriches led by Pontius Pilate, you bury your head in the sand, while he washes his hands of responsibility." Do I see a one-legged canard swimming in circles?
