Tory own goal
The Tories have scored another own goal. After years of baiting Labour about whether they will retain the Secretary of State for Wales in the Cabinet and then months attacking Peter Hain for doing the job on a part time basis, they have found that there is no room for this job in their A-team either. Ribble Valley MP, former Swansea Councillor and newsagent, Nigel Evans, quit in the face of an embarrassing demotion and has been replaced by Leominster MP, Bill Wiggins. Mr Wiggins is a member of the All Party Group on endangered species, which will come in quite handy in his new role.
