Playing the Regeneration Game

Rhondda AM Leighton Andrews has ruled himself out as a contender to replace First Minister Rhodri Morgan as leader of Welsh Labour. The rest of us did that a year last September.

Hurry up and take the photograph David, because now we're on our own.

He seems to have created a lot of bad press over this.

Nice to see Leighton wearing a Conservative colour. Perhaps we'll see him switching sides after a Conservative landslide.

Word verification is dyedagen (dyed again). You couldn't make it up.

Tory landslide? The way your party has been performing over recent weeks i think consolidation would be a more realistic goal...
PS the reason leighton is in blue is because he is a city fan...
not that your side would know too much about that...after all its not polo is it

I think the anonymous is having a joke David.

Leighton Andrews would never turn Conservative as there are not many safe Conservative seats in Wales.

Loyalty is a precious commodity that is only applicable to the few.

Exactly – the whole Cardiff City thing is just a play to make him look like a ‘man of the people’. Why change sides? I would understand if he was from South Wales perhaps, but the question I would ask is why doesn’t he support Gillingham anymore?

It's all about loyalty and his ambition. This is the reason behind him not getting much support from Welsh Labour.

Don't mind him being at the forefront of some issues but wouldn't want to see him running the show.
