Gategate: Who stole the news?
Tuesday, February 06, 2007
I've spent the day chasing gates around South Wales.
Yes, apparently gating-up alleyways is the top news in Wales today.
The Assembly voted this afternoon to give councils the right to block public rights of way with sturdy gates, which can be opened only by approved local residents. This, they say, will cut crime.
It'll cost the government nothing: for a few seconds of Environment Minister Carwyn Jones' time at a somewhat subdued press call in Whitchurch, the day's news agenda was stolen.
That's the crux of the gategate scandal on the day when wrought iron hijacked the news.
