Some follow up to two long-running stories that I have featured on this blog. Firstly, it seems that the signs for Llanddewi-Brefi have rematerialised. The three signs went missing before Christmas, presumably taken by fans of the show Little Britain. It now appears that they may have been stolen by people wanting to fleece the aforesaid fans. Apparently, they appeared for sale on e-bay in early January. Police inquiries are continuing but so far they have failed to recover them.

Secondly, I note that the First Minister has joined in with Tony Blair in calling on Ken Livingstone to apologise for his 'Nazi' comment to a Jewish reporter. The Mayor of London though seems to be resolute in his refusal to comply with his party leader's request and it may be up to the Standards Board of England to resolve the matter. The Culture Secretary, Tessa Jowell, and Jewish community leaders have also said that Mr Livingstone should apologise. However, Tory MP, Boris Johnson, has taken a contrary view. He believes that Mr. Livingstone should not say sorry but "stick to his guns". Well that is a turn-up for the books, Boris and Ken agreeing on something. Perhaps when Ken does relent he can ask Boris for a loan of the sackcloth and ashes that the MP took to Liverpool with him.
