Trumpet Blowing

Just for fun:

"There’s a new Welsh blog that gets the bit between its teeth in Welsh politics called Miss Wagstaff , and goes for the detail. In a Welsh Assembly Government that may turn out to always be a set of rotating coalitions, it may be that bloggers can be a force to keep politicians’ behaviour at least vaguely transparent... The style is a little bit like Westmonster, but (to my ear) without the partisan edge, with more detail, and a little less snarky", The Wardman Wire, November 2007.

"As I suspected: Miss Wagstaff is in fact Mai Tits. I mean Davies." Ordovicius, November 2007.
.
"Miss Wagstaff offers the alternative version...", Peter Black AM, November 2007.
.
"Were I to spend too long in the Assembly's dining facilities, would my GP be able to prescribe me a free gym membership?" Daniel Davies (Tiger Tales), November 2007.
.
"They still like to have a go, though the the most recent attempt is more of a place for them to hang out together than anything else", Ordovicius, November 2007.
.
"What do you mean you had the same thought? You are Seneddwr....and Arsembly for that matter. You're so obvious!, Anonymous, November 2007. "Doesn't everyone get accused of being Arsembly and Seneddwr from time to time? I'll consider it a compliment, even if I am the wrong sex." Miss Wagstaff, November 2007. Notice I've corrected the spelling (lol)

"An excellent blog looking at the politics of Wales." The Poliblogs, November 2007.

"Kudos to the fantastic Miss Wagstaff for the lowdown..." Homage to Catatonia, November 2007.

"The impressive Miss Wagstaff has triggered some interesting blogospheric rumblings." Normal Mouth, November 2007.
.
"THREE Blogs that should be nominated for in the Best Blog by a Woman Non-Lib Dem category, and state why:I am afraid that I am going to introduce a distinctly Welsh flavour here by nominating the excellent Miss Wagstaff, dedicated to holding the One Wales Government to account..." Peter Black AM, December 2007.
.
"From A ...dam Price MP to V.. alleys Mam and W... agstaff (Miss) (not leaving anyone out on the way of course) Nadolig Llawen iawn i chi gyd." Betsan Powys (BBC), December 2007.
.
"By the way, do we actually know if Miss Wagstaff is a woman? ..." Bethan Jenkins AM, December 2007.
.
"Pippa Wagstaff of the excellent blog Miss Wagstaff Presents... has addressed in a very roundabout way (without clearly answering; there's a politician in her yet!) the issue of who is behind the Pippa Wagstaff blog. It appears there may be some speculation that the pen-name Pippa Wagstaff may be former AM Christine Gwyther...." Damon Lord, January 2008
.
"Pippa is a very good blogger, and writes intelligently and in depth on a number of issues regarding Wales, and is one of my regular reads." Damon Lord, January 2008
.
"Senedd Whip is to be a guest blogger on Miss Wagstaff - who is your beau Pippa?" Valleys Mam, January 2008
.
"Rated E for Excellent" Valleys Mam and Normal Mouth, February 2008
.
"Did you know that your blog has been banned in the Welsh Assembly Government? When staff there try to access your site the Internet security software automatically denies access! What are they afraid of?" April 2008
.

.
"It seems this blog has been around for a while but I have been slow off the mark", Martin Eaglestone August 2008
.
"Her blog has also been blocked on Welsh Assembly Government computers. I wonder if they can still read mine. This level of paranoia does no credit to the One Wales Government. Are they really that worried about adverse comment that they might seek to suppress it soviet-style? It says a great deal about Labour and Plaid Cymru's style of doing things." Peter Black AM August 2008
.

.
"The Welsh Politico Blog Award 2008 nominations. Adrian Masters (Presenter of Dragon's Eye, and former presenter of the BBC's Politics Show Wales): MISS WAGSTAFF PRESENTS: How to make enemies and alienate people - Insider gossip with substance. As always. Alan Davies (Managing Director of Junction 31 and Director at Cymro Consulting): MISS WAGSTAFF PRESENTS: Wiped from the Face(book) of the earth - Miss Wagstaff Presents is a must read- first for all the juicy inside gossip from Cardiff Bay. First to get political scoops. She/he/it has a finger on the Welsh political pulse like no other journalist. This story is testament to her growing influence, and the fear she strikes in to our Welsh political classes (particularly Labour ones!)", October 2008
.
"Certainly, we have heard nothing for weeks from "Pippa Wagstaff" which was allegedly run by Conservative staffers", April 2009
