Full circle

For the last year the Welsh First Minister has deflected attacks on his government and virtually refused to cooperate with legitimate scrutiny, preferring instead to answer questions with attacks on the UK Coalition.

Now, the UK Prime Minister has caught on and spent much of yesterday's question time attacking Labour and Plaid Cymru in Cardiff Bay.

No wonder people are disillusioned with politics. By all means compare and contrast but the point of these sessions is meant to be effective scrutiny. You cannot have good government unless the opposition start asking awkward questions and insist on an answer.

These tactics undermine that convention and plunge us even further into the realm of yah-boo politics.
