The wrong sort of leak


A meeting of a Welsh assembly committee has been abandoned after water leaked through the roof of the building.

AMs were taking evidence from teaching unions on education plans for 14-19-year-olds before giving up.

"Very, very embarrassed" chairman Jeff Cuthbert called it a "leak in the Welsh assembly of the wrong sort".

The £67m Senedd building in Cardiff Bay underwent repairs within days of its opening by the Queen in March 2006 because of leaks during heavy rain.
Mr Cuthbert initially interrupted the meeting to explain why an official was placing a mat behind his chair.

The Caerphilly AM apologised, describing the situation as "very very embarrassing", "a little ridiculous" and just "not acceptable".

The committee persevered for a few minutes but eventually had to give up.

Jeff Cuthbert explains why an official is placing a mat behind him"It's actually making more noise in my ear than anything else," said Mr Cuthbert.

Liberal Democrat AM Kirsty Williams complained that the dripping water was becoming worse and "getting really distracting".

On the subject of Roofs, Mr B has just been on the phone, very impressed with your office getting back to him so soon! Cheers Peter.

I know what this feels like! My shed i built out of 99% recycled materials has been leaking . Ouch!
I keep pigeons in mine!

Q: Do you know what the difference is between Cardiff and Blackpool?

A: In Blackpool they keep their donkeys on the beach.
Welsh Assembly AMs should be a LOT more embarrassed about the poor GVA per head of population figure for Wales as noted in ‘An Overview of the Welsh economy” by Professor Brian Morgan, in ‘Who’s Who in Wales 2008’ published by the Western Mail, see especially page 9 thereof).
Was the leak NO2-CO-NO2 ?
Heaven help you poor fragile AMs then if any of you had to work in the sort of buildings and schools you 'maintain' for the rest of us public sector folk!
Right, that's it, let's get rid of the Assembly.
Or even NH2-CO-NH2

NO2 is nitrogen dioxide, a molecule in its own right, it isn't a radical.
