Best dressed

Christmas it appears is the season of awards. The BBC programme AM/PM will be issuing its twice-yearly awards to Welsh politicians today, whilst later on this evening HTV Wales will be doing the same thing. Meanwhile, the Daily Post has e-mailed AMs asking for nominations for Politician of the Year, Male AM of the Year, Female AM of the Year and Quote of the Year.

According to the BBC, the best-dressed politician of the year is the Social Justice Minister, Edwina Hart. The judges were particularly taken with her striking blue-dress-and-gloves combo at the red-carpet Royal Variety Performance last week. She beat some tough competition to take this prize including Welsh Secretary Peter Hain. South Wales East Tory, William Graham was also shortlisted, presumably helped by his habit of wearing a fresh orchid as a buttonhole each day, plucked from his own greenhouses. Our youngest member Laura Anne Jones was also there, though her preference in clothes is more understated. She prefers simple black and white outfits rather than flamboyance.

Unsurprisingly, Peter Law was Politician of the Year, whilst Tory AM and MP, David Davies picked up the gong for most outspoken politician. Congratulations must go to Leighton Andrews who was made Communicator of the Year for his blogging. I am told that the judges were impressed by the way that he used his blog to report on the Cardiff City FC financial crisis.
surely you meann Gillingham`s financial problems?
