I once remember going for a p** when Man Utd were losing a European Final with just seconds to go. When I returned, Man Utd had won the Cup. At present, Welsh politics is a bit like that.
There I was, wondering when the Rainbow Government was going to take over - when out of the blue, along comes Dragon's Eye tonight. There was Edwina Hart, the new Health Minister and Adam Price, Plaid Cymru's 'policy guru' talking about beginning an affair - with marraige in mind. Poor old Ieuan Wyn Jones must be spitting nails. And King over the Mountain, Dafydd Wigley must be tearing his hair out. And imagine the smug grins on the faces of Helen Mary Jones' 'Gang of Four'. Doesn't bear thinking about.
This change of mood is serious. Adam Price had been saying much the same to Tomos Livingstone of the Western Mail yesterday. He means it. And Edwina Hart giving interviews to Dragon's Eye! Whatever next. In desperation, expect to see one of Ieuan's stormtroopers, probably Dai Lloyd being despatched around the studios tomorrow to savage Labour and salvage Ieuan's dissappearing dream of an audience with the Queen. No, Adam wasn't saying that at all. Well actually, Yes he was.
