Will you be my Champion?

Following on from an earlier post and an article in the Western Mail there's now been a call [sort of] for more Commissioners to champion other concerns in Welsh society.

As Russell Lawson, spokesman for the Federation of Small Businesses in Wales, said, “I personally think it would be quite a stretch to say we need a commissioner to do so many different things as we would end up with a whole army of commissioners,”

Apart from this, I thought it wouldn't take much time for other people to call out for a champion or commissioner. Surely all good causes, however, there must be a better way to gain full employment in Wales and this is certainly a novel one.

We seem to be obsessed with the title of Commissioner these days. Even the National Assembly body is called a Commission with its gang of five - Dafydd Elis Thomas, William Graham, Lorraine Barrett, Peter Black and Chris Franks.

I think there should be a Bloggers' Commisioner.

What ever happened to Champion the Wonder Horse? Gesture politics at its finest. At the moment Wales is looking like a country straight out of any 1950s Ealing commedy.

More commissioners?! Isn't it the job of AMs and MPs to take the role of champions/commissioners?

Re: high profile jobs in the Assembly, there's also Chris Pollock who is looking into the role and functions of a chief science adviser for the WAG.

Commissioner ... I suppose it makes a change from that old 90s buzzword Tsar.

Of course it's all do-gooder nonsense ... I guess eventually they'll appoint a Commissioner to look after the rights of the other Commissioners .... roll on the revolution.
