Whatever happened to Quid Pro Quo?

Matt Withers has reported on the first day back this week for the Assembly. There weren’t even any good jokes from First Minister Rhodri Morgan, although he did manage an aside at Conservative leader Nick Bourne, who – following an incident with a Croatian shower – turned up in the chamber with a black eye and a large plaster on his head.

I thought it was the Deputy First Minister who was meant to meet Muhammad Ali last week, not you, but I hope you make a full recovery,” said Mr Morgan.

Hardly a great gesture on the floor of the world's greatest democracy. Perhaps Mr Morgan needs reminding of how generous opposition leaders were at a time when it suited him. Hardly comparable, but I seem to recall even Mr Morgan making mention of it at every opportunity for months afterwards.

For heart scare and life threatening/changing moment, read normal procedure that many go through on a daily basis in UK hospitals - but not as quickly arranged as some.

Damn those waiting lists.
