An easy ride

The former Conservative Assembly Member Glyn Davies has used his blog to announce that he will be seeking his party's nomination to challenge incumbent Welsh Liberal Democrat MP, Lembit Őpik in Montgomeryshire at the next General Election. Since he lost his seat, Glyn has had a bit of an easy ride in the media and on the blogosphere.

There is no doubt that Lembit has upset many influential people in finishing his relationship with Sian Lloyd and taking up with a cheeky girl. Friends of Sian have combined with our political enemies to wish Lembit ill and to pray for his comeuppance.

Glyn is of course, a very affable person who was popular with nearly everybody in the Assembly. Nobody can take that away from him. However, he is also a politician and a mainstream conservative and we should not allow sentiment to dull our critical faculties. If Glyn re-enters the political fray then I hope that commentators apply the same level of scrutiny to him as they do to all other politicians. I am sure he would not want it any other way.
