One leak, one drip!

A meeting of a Welsh assembly committee has been abandoned after water leaked through the roof of the building.

AMs were taking evidence from teaching unions on education plans for 14-19-year-olds before giving up.

"Very, very embarrassed" chairman Jeff Cuthbert AM called it a "leak in the Welsh assembly of the wrong sort".

With this much fuss over the noise of one leak or drip, it's fortunate that there's not a war taking place - that would bring the wheels of democracy in Wales to a standstill!

Taking evidence from teaching unions on education plans for 14-19-year-olds?

Shouldn't the committee have been taking evidence from teachers?

That would be a good start!

From the BBC website:

"...The £67m Senedd building in Cardiff Bay underwent repairs within days of its opening by the Queen in March 2006 because of leaks during heavy rain."

I would suggest that the building has got more leeks than a Welsh Primary School on St. David's Day!

Suggests that the building isn't fit for purpose, bit like the whole of WAG.

Too bloody obvious! It's a bit like the WAG consulting on foster parents allowances, the groups asked were those who financed the whole fostering arena in Wales - f*cking geniuses!

I am inclined to agree anon.

If you are a foster parent anonymous you might be in a position, with support from other foster parents, to shout loud enough for everyone else to hear what you have to say, don't take it lying down, government belongs to you.

In another dimension far far away, or maybe just around the corner ...

Well, rain is not just water, there's some gases dissolved in it - so it's dilute carbonic acid. So Cuthbert is a Dilute Carbonic Acid God.

Water naturally scrubs the air - so there will be some other matter in it.

To be absolutely sure we would have to take samples ... taking care not to pollute the water samples, so might collect the samples in double-pure vials with caps taking care to fill the vials to the top to stop more gases dissolving in the water sample, and also to stop out-gassing.

To make sure that we could collect a decent set of samples, we would have to vacate the room.

Jeff Cuthbert agreed to our wishes and vacated the room.
