Politicians should dampen down the fear of a no-deal Brexit and stop trying to portray it as some sort of Armageddon.” This was the message I got last Monday on a visit with the Welsh Affairs Committee.
Brexit crunch time is coming. The Brexit deal being put forward by the government is an imperfect compromise. It takes us out of the EU but keeps us in the Customs Union for at least another two years.
The current First Minister Carwyn Jones is on the brink of retiring and I wish him well. There are three Assembly Members from the Labour group seeking his job and the winner will be crowned as Wales’ next First Minister.
I was greatly saddened to hear of the death of Enzo Calzaghe whose funeral took place on Friday. Enzo contributed an enormous amount to the sport of boxing in Wales, training numerous fighters including his son Joe.
We all know the story of the NHS don't we? Slightly over seven decades ago it was launched by the Health Minister of one political party (the good guys - hooray) in the face of furious opposition from members of another political party (the bad guys - boo).
I am delighted the Assembly’s Public Accounts Committee has produced a damning report citing the “inexplicable decisions” of Welsh Government officials to pump over £9m into the failed Circuit of Wales project.
I am getting a lot of emails and letters from people complaining about Brexit. Contrary to what the media might think or suggest, these are not complaints about the fact that Brexit is happening - far from it.
