Bremner on Hain

The BBC carries an article on Rory Bremner's little prank on Margaret Beckett and Peter Hain. Unlike the Foreign Secretary, Mr. Hain saw right through it due to Bremner's lack of knowledge about Wales.

In The Observer this morning Bremner still seems confused about what happens this side of the Severn Bridge, referring to the Blaenau Ffestiniog by-election instead of Blaenau Gwent.

What Bremner did of course is entirely wrong and irresponsible. Nevertheless, he has a good line in patter:

Bremner questioned Mr Hain's views on renewing Britain's nuclear weapons and the Iraq war and said: "I want to know who's impersonating Peter Hain, because I remember you as this left wing and ideological figure."

In response the Welsh Secretary asserted that he has kept to his principles and that he is proud of what he has done in the past. And so he should be.
