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!
