Barrett's blast from the past
Wednesday, April 11, 2007
Oh for the glory days. Nostalgia is all around us at the moment, from high street fashion to something called Life on Mars (haven't seen it, why bother when Desperate Housewives is still going strong?).
Never one to be left out of the latest fad, Labour's Cardiff South and Penarth candidate Lorraine Barrett has setup a 90s nostalgia website. It's a world where the assembly is still housed in that horrid brick building, and Alun Michael is First Minister. I know Labour are intending to stand on their record at this assembly election, but isn't that going a little too far?

Are you sure? That seems like a very odd pledge to make in a relatively safe seat.

I was there, dude.
I particularly noted it, because outside of politics, I love languages and I'm always interested if someone says they're going to learn a language, whatever it may be.
I think she was pandering to the audience though.

I should note that I was there as chief campaign gopher for the Tory candidate at the hustings, Cardiff Central's then candidate Craig Piper (now only seventh on the list for S. Wales Central).
