Sights you don't see in the Senedd

Part 6:

Politicians scuffled and threw punches at each other in the Ukrainian parliament ahead of a vote on whether to dismiss speaker Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

Mr Yatsenyuk, an ally of President Viktor Yushchenko, is setting up his own political force.
No comparison with Dafydd Elis-Thomas (wink).


Welsh American unhappy with Peter Black's rude remarks about a former POW 14 November 2008 at 15:45  

Not open fist fights as such, but one sees Lib-Dem AM Peter Black making disparaging and grossly rude remarks on his blog about the Senior Senator from Arizona.

Peter Black is undermining one of the greatest proponents for open and transparent bidding for US defense contracts especially with regard to the Airbus-Boeing fight over the DOD/Pentagons mid-air refueling air tanker contract.

It was Senator McCain who got the contract re-opened and Airbus won out against Boeing who lost the contract. Now there is talk of giving Boeing another bite at the apple, and what is Peter Black doing? Oh, he accused the Senior Senator from Arizona, a former POW, of “break-dancing” with his arms and making ‘unnatural body movements’.

The contract is worth billions - and hundreds of Welsh jobs are at state, both at the Welsh wing building plant in North Wales and hundreds more around the country in the supply chain.

What on earth is Peter Black doing? Open free trade is essential to Welsh jobs - but there's Peter Black making the most rude remarks about the Senior Senator from Arizona - these kinds of remarks about a former POW's physical impairments are regarded with contempt here in the USA.

The news in the USA - especially around Washington, DC are likely going to pick up on this dreadful story.
