Senedd Circular: Sex and the City – Access all areas

This article appears in The Wardman Wire:

This week, Miss Wagstaff has been unwell and unable to write a column. Before you’re able to type her email address and send in a ‘Get Well Soon’ card with concern, she has managed to raise a smile at the thought of certain progression in the Senedd.

It seems that not content with Doctor Who being filmed at the Senedd, the Assembly Commission has allowed a popular television programme, Caerdydd [Cardiff] to film there. This has produced unexpected [expected by viewers] results*. At this rate, Pippa is blushing and quaking at the knees at the thought of what may be broadcasted on Senedd tv.

* In the scene, a young employee of an unnamed political party - who had just been asked to stand as an assembly candidate - is seen enticing her older lover into a toilet and baby-making-changing room in the Senedd.

There then follows an explicit encounter between the two.

"However the National Assembly was told that this scene was a conversation scene and was not aware of its full content," said a spokesperson.

"The company was allowed to film in good faith."

Miss Wagstaff had wondered what the Assembly Security Guards could have been up to at this point. Were they guarding the entrance? Were they guarding the rear? Whatever they were doing, they certainly weren’t keeping an eye on the film crew, actors, and the situation that arose. Her memory was jogged.

From Dr Who, to turning blue - Live debate from the chamber is coming soon to a box near you.

Ugandan discussions:
In Britain, a journalistic euphemism for sexual-intercourse, usually illicit, coined by the satirical magazine Private Eye when dictator Idi Amin Dada (1971-1979) accused one of his ministers, Princess Elizabeth, of having-sex in a bathroom while on a diplomatric mission to Europe.

... don't know what all the fuss is about.

Isn't this just a PR stunt between Dafydd El and the tv company to try and sex-up the Senedd and make people take more notice of it. A lot of tut-tuting and faux-concern. This is the best thing that's happened to the Senedd since it opened and they know it!
