Euro mess

I have a great deal of time for Wrexham Assembly Member, Lesley Griffiths who, despite her tendency to occasionally lapse into the role of Government apologist in the chamber, is a genuine supporter of devolution and not afraid to speak out against the government line on powers and the need for a referendum.

She is absolutely right this morning to highlight an example of where the government has got it wrong over European funding. She has told the media that Wales could miss out on millions of pounds of investment because the UK does not appear on a European website designed to make cross-border business easier.

She wants the Assembly Government to make representations to their UK equivalents to put right this omission. How refreshing to see a Labour politician pointing out the inadequacies of a Labour Government. Let us hope that they listen.
