Whatever you do, don't panic! Gordon Brown isn't the only politician to be having a run of bad luck lately. Here in Wales, the Minister for Heritage, Rhodri Glyn Thomas AM, will be taking on board a second challenge since coming to office. The Welsh media, on the other hand, seem to enjoy the trials and tribulations of the Welsh Assembly Government and always seem to have something to play with.
This run of bad luck tends to come in three, and sometimes that figure is per week.
The deadline is soon, but we may have to put up with a different number three to satisfy the media in the meantime.
