Labour irony

After my post on Sunday about the failure of English Labour MPs to understand devolution we now have an example of Welsh Labour AMs who do not not understand democracy. There was a report in yesterday's Western Mail that Rhodri Morgan is to use the same Union block vote that twice denied him the Welsh Labour leadership in 1998/99 to force through extra powers for the Assembly. Do they never learn?

It is also reported that although Rhodri wants the extra powers he is not prepared to accept STV nor an increase in the number of AMs to 80. Fair enough. But if we are to proceed on that basis then his group of Labour AMs are going to have to drop their aversion to formal committee meetings.
