I'm the Hen Ferchetan. This is my take on the world through the eyes of Wales. While mostly about Welsh politics (that most famous of dour topics!) I try to scatter some humour around, but I doubt anyone but me will find it funny! Have a read, and if it bores you then feel free to never come back!

Jones Jones Jones

One of the headlines announcing Alun Ffred Jones' rise to the Cabinet comes from The Stage website. It says: Jones appointed Wales’ Heritage Minister after shock departure of Thomas.

Now I know the headline just a teeny bit on the long winded side, but it made me realise that all 3 of Plaid's ministers are Jones' now - Ieuan Wyn, Elin and now Alun Ffred. The highest ranking Thomas is now Labour's Gwenda, deputy-minister for Social Services.

I'm struggling very hard not to be as predictable as making a joke about keeping up!

The highest ranking Thomas in the Assembly and the world is surely his Lordship, not Gwenda.

I meant in the government, but fair point, he does Lord over them all!

As the only other serious contenders for the role were Helen Mary Jones and Gareth Jones, the Jones, Jones, Jones headline could have been written days ago.

True, lucky Plaid don't have four or five spots in the Cabinet then or things would get very complicated!
