It is reported that John Marek's new socialist alternative, "Forward Wales", is eyeing up the discredited former Assembly Member and Secretary of State for Wales, Ron Davies, to head up its list for the European elections on 10 June. This new party is rapidly beginning to look like a collection of Labour rejects. It is rumoured, for example, that Peter Law will also be offered safe haven if he decides to oppose the official Labour Candidate in Blaenau Gwent at the next General Election. Perhaps it should be renamed "Backwards Wales". One thing is for certain, if Ron Davies does stand, he will not attract much support from Swansea after the way that he treated this City during the competition to find a home for the Welsh Assembly.
