Plaid leader puts women in their place
Thursday, March 08, 2007
Shocking news from the BBC's sound and frequent blogger, David Cornock.
Plaid's Adam Price MP has been eulogising about his party's leader in the assembly. Sorry, did I say 'eulogising'? I meant to say 'indelibly tarnishing the image of'.
Because the best he could do to describe the man whose responsibility it is to be the face of Plaid in these testing pre-election months was to say:
"He's a good country solicitor, that is the way he comes across."
Well, if the local Rotary Club can spare him to take part in the policy writing process I shall look forward to reading about planning disputes and divorce proceedings in the Plaid manifesto before long.
Most surprising, however, was what came next:
"He's punctual, he's a good negotiator, a good man and woman manager, he gets the job done. That is what a lot of people are looking for in a first minister."
Yes, a decent bloke and someone who knows how to deal with the missus. I suppose it depends on how you read the stress:) But with women like Leanne Wood and Helen Mary Jones sitting stubbornly in the Senedd, and the almost unbendable Bethan Jenkins soon to join them, he'll need all the woman managing skills he can muster.

Don't tell me that this Bethan Jenkins is a cross between Helen Mary and Leanne Wood. The thought terrifies me. If Brynle and I are re-elected, we are going to start a Mature Man's Defence League

Surely Tory Old Sods' Society would be more appropriate, Glyn. You never did give a TOSS...
