Bye bye Jeff
It is a bolt out of the blue. Jeff Jones, the leader of Bridgend Council and Chair of the Welsh Joint Education Committtee, has announced that he is standing down. Always controversial, he will be a big loss to the opposition. He was our biggest asset in that Council area. He was also the leading figure in the persecution of Welsh Liberal Democrat Assembly Leader, Mike German, when we were in Partnership with Labour in the Assembly. The big question is "what is the real reason why he has stood down?" Rumour has it that he was pushed. We may never know.
