Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time

While some dead wood, for which the Assembly has found little use, will be cast adrift at the next Assembly in 2011, Labour has wasted little time in fighting wood rot.

As part of its slow rejuvenation, Welsh Labour have chosen an impressive figure as candidate for Cardiff South and Penarth at the next Assembly election.

Vaughan Gething, a Cardiff solicitor, was Wales TUC's first black president and at 34 was also the youngest. Vaughan Gething lives in Cardiff, is a member of the GMB and a partner at Thompsons Solicitors.

Was this the same Vaughan Gething who stood outside a poll station and handed out his election propaganda breaking the law.

That is not against the law if he was not within polling station boundaries

He was! Ask Rodney Berman!

The same vaughan who was a councillor in Butetown and did bu**er all for four years?

The fact that he is a lawyer is one strike against him. The second his rather dubious record as a Butetown councillor for which he was kicked out, another strike. Hell this guy has more strikes than a box of Swan Matches. He does not represent a new generation, merely an extension of the previous corrupt one.

Yep, that's the very same Vaughan Gething who ousted the Independent Betty Campbell with his doubtful activities.

Ms. Campbell used to do more in a week than he has done during his entire tenure.

But, of course , he's NuLabour through and through.
