Grand gesture

A small piece in the Wales on Sunday reveals that the Secretary of State for Wales will tomorrow hail the National Assembly for its 'groundbreaking' introduction of student grants. This is despite the fact that Peter Hain was part of the UK Government which scrapped them.

My money is on the fact that Mr. Hain does not mention that student grants were introduced by the Welsh Liberal Democrats-Labour Partnership Government, nor that they came about from a Rees Commission Report put into the Partnership Agreement by my party. I suspect he will not mention either that the policy was only agreed by the Partnership Government against the objections of the Education Minister.
