And in other (good) news!

The Western Mail also leads on the Swans and nobody would want it any other way. However, I was intriqued by a small item tucked away at the botton of page 17, which does not (yet) appear on-line.

The paper tells us that more than 40,000 people in Wales no longer pay income tax, with the country's population amongst the biggest winners from last months's tax changes.

They go on to explain that a £1,000 cash increase in the personal allowance for under-65s to £7,475 in 2011-12 was announced in the June 2010 budget and came into force last month. The changes benefit around 1.1 million people in Wales, who will see the tax they pay decrease by £300 this year - about 77.6% of the economically active population.

This is evidence of Liberal Democrat influence in action as part of the coalition government so why was it not reported more prominently?
