Roll over Rocco Forte
The otherwise talented Labour MP for Rhondda, Chris Bryant, brings into question his aesthetic preferences with the demand that the rather splendid St. David's Hotel in Cardiff Bay be blown up and buried in the now submerged sand dunes. His complaint that it is "just horrid" reaches new heights in architectural criticism, whilst his question - "What is that thing on the roof?" - proves that he is unfamiliar with giant Sky satellite dishes. I have stayed there and have always wondered why it is that despite this marvellous aid to TV reception I could not get E4 on the television and thus missed the "West Wing".
