Senedd Circular: A New Political Column for 'The Wardman Wire'

Several weeks ago Matt Wardman of the The Wardman Wire asked if I would be interested in writing a regular column for his blog. As a background to his new venture, Matt has asked bloggers from the four corners of the UK to write about their corner (or circle in our case).

The other bloggers are Sadie Smith (Sadie's Tavern) for Westminster, Will Patterson (J. Arthur MacNumpty) for Scotland, a Mr/Ms TBA for Northern Ireland, and a Mr/Ms TBA for Brussels who will also be publishing their columns on their respective blogs.

Senedd Circular

Why “Circular”?

The official reason is that it is a Newsletter and the Senedd Chamber is circular. You may not believe me, but it has nothing to do with 8.3% pay increases and fatcat (i.e. circular) AMs. Nor does it have anything to do with extra-large AMs after too many political lunches.*

The introductory post has been published and the next article will be an Easter Recess Catch-up to be published next week, so we should have our first real Senedd Circular report posted the first week of the new term.

Note to Readers:

I insist, the “Circular” title was inspired by the shape of the chamber, rather than a plan view of any Senedd member after too many political lunches, or the path followed by debates. Really.

* meant as a joke as I love you all dearly.

Excellent stuff. Looking forward to reading it.

Well done - hopefully it will give a higher profile to Wakes in the political blogosphere

It'll be good to have you back after your break from blogging. You've missed out on blogging about recent Welsh events.

good luck with the weekly column.

Glad you can rejoin us after Easter. Big grin.

I look on and look forward to it with Green eyes! I would have loved to have do it.

As long as you don't give up this blog as it's my regular read when it comes to tea breaks.

"Circular...or the path followed by debates" Cruel, but true!!!!!!!

Matt Wardman 28 March 2008 at 00:28  

Bah humbug! It was inspired by an aerial photo of Rhodri. You know it was.

That's my story and you can't disprove it...

You'll need an assistant with the local elections coming up.

Thanks for you kind comments, though I did wonder whether to accept or not when I was snowed under with work, but Matt persevered with me (and asked everyone else in the meantime ;)

Only teasing! Mind you, Matt, Rhodri isn't going to thank you for your comment now that he's slim due to his 'life changing' experience.

Does this mean that the failings of the rather large Rhodri Morgan, Carwyn Jones and their underlings will get an even wider press than now?

Oh well, perhaps it will make him sit up and take note of real peoples’ concerns.

Will it also be on your blog?

David Lindsay 30 March 2008 at 13:07  

P.S. Wardman Wire is an excellent blog and a great political mixed bag.

>Mind you, Matt, Rhodri isn't going to thank you for your comment now that he's slim due to his 'life changing' experience.

It must have been an old photo...
