An inauspicious start

The appointment of Alun Ffred Jones as the new Heritage Minister has been much anticipated none more so than by his own side it seems.

Tom Bodden reports that North Wales Plaid AM Janet Ryder welcomed the appointment in a press release issued at 12.37pm today. Unfortunately, when the press release reached the media, the ministerial appointment had yet to be confirmed by the Assembly Government, or indeed by the Queen.

First Minister, Rhodri Morgan made the announcement at 14.59 today. I wonder how he feels about being upstaged by one of the Administration's backbenchers?
They did the same thing 2 weeks ago, when they issued a press release in the name of Ieuan Wyn Jones, welcoming the approval of the NHS Redress (Wales) Measure hours BEFORE it had actually been given Royal Assent by the Queen.

Could this be Plaid' Ministers of the Crown showing total disrespect to Her Majesty thr Queen?
