The Twenty Seven steps

Tomos Livingstone publishes Plaid Cymru MP, Hywel Williams' list of the 27 stages that any Legislative Competence Order has to go through before it becomes law.

The disturbing thing is that at the end of this tortuous process not a single aspect of Welsh life will have changed or been improved. All that will have happened is that some limited power will have been transferred to the Welsh Assembly. To do anything with this power the Assembly will have to produce a measure that could take another six months and numerous further stages to become law.

What a way to run a country!
Another twelve steps and you could make a novel out of the process.
Thats 24 more steps than needed to get to Heaven.....
