Light blue touch paper...

I don't know about you but I am running out of new things to say about Leanne-Gate. Not so, the Western Mail, who carry a rather strange apology at the top of their letters page this morning. Under the heading "Wood fuel worries", suggesting an obsession with bio-mass rather than political intrique, the newspaper's editor steps in to apologise on behalf of Labour AM, Huw Lewis, for his rather intemperate comments yesterday:

THE Western Mail apologises for certain words used in a letter from Huw Lewis AM in yesterday's edition.

The Western Mail does not associate itself with such remarks.

We have issued an unconditional apology to Leanne Wood Plaid Cymru - The Party of Wales Assembly Member for South Wales Central.

This does not prevent them maintaining a link to the offending letter on their website of course, enabling us all to see for ourselves what it was that Huw said that caused the Western Mail's legal team to jump up and down in panic. If somebody does work out which remark precipitated the apology could they please let me know.

If only the scandals in the Welsh Assembly were half as exciting as those in Westminster, then we too might be looking forward to a new play called "Who's the Daddy?" opening in one of our theatres. The Wales Millennium Centre would be the ideal venue. Would we also have the threat of litigation to add spice to the satire?
