Feeling Hain's Pain: Stop pointing the finger at me!

Some argue that 2007/08 is Plaid's year in Welsh politics. Should Labour allow them to have a scalp? Who will save Peter?

Unless you've been stuck in solitary confinement for several weeks you'll be aware that Peter's in trouble - just take a look at the daily papers - you can take your pick. He's also been getting two jobs done on a wing and a prayer while under constant criticism from other political parties about his dual role.

Will he survive? If the press has got anything to do with it then I think not. I browsed the Internet yesterday and here's what I found:

Western Mail

That's plenty of coverage in just a few days from one newspaper - Wales' own daily - The Western Mail. If he's collecting cuttings for his scrap book and takes all daily papers he's going to have to stock up on glue.

I remember a time when they talked about his day-job:

Will we revert to talking about Peter Hain and his role as Secretary of State, not his predicament of facing three separate inquiries that may seal his fate? Not for a while it seems.

The Politics Show is discussing it today so that should be interesting. I wonder who'll they'll get to defend him and have a go?

Tit for tat between Labour and Plaid again. Tut tut.
