Gordon Brown hands Wales back
Somebody has obviously explained to the Chancellor of the Exchequer that if he starts making announcements on behalf of the Labour Assembly Government then he might have to take responsibility for running it and for the state of the Welsh NHS. Naturally, he has immediately backtracked. This is a shame. As I said to Rhodri Morgan in Plenary yesterday, perhaps if Gordon Brown was going to be running the Labour Assembly Government from now on he might also want to take responsibility for offering some political leadership in promoting the outcome of the Richard Commission. After all, Rhodri Morgan himself, no longer seems interested in that role.
