This week, I shall be deputising for Matt Withers while Wales'
The column is called 'Spin Doctor' because 'Matt Withers' didn't sound sexy enough for the cesspit of sleaze and crap metaphors that is contemporary Welsh politics.
And so, I am asking you please to send me little tidbits of gossip and amusing goings-on from the Welsh political world this week. There's got to be something interesting happening. Do it for the sake of your own vanity, or to bugger your boss. Whatever, just whop it in an EMAIL to me.
It kind of defeats the point if you write it in the comments section, so let's reserve that for made-up gossip instead.
I'll make a start...
Peter Black is Swansea West Warhammer champion, 2007.
Carl Sargeant turned down the Economic Development, Health and Education portfolios before eventually settling for the 'You get to sit around the cabinet but you can't make notes' brief.
Jonathan Morgan has announced he won't be contesting Cardiff North in the next general election so he can concentrate solely on becoming Nick Bourne's biographer.
And Plaid's Gang of Four are currently in the recording studio preparing to release a single - "4 become 1". It's thought to include the lyrics, "Be a little wiser baby, put it off, put it off."
And that's as near as you'll get to a popular culture reference from me:)

Before Thursday please.
I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Matt has been properly chronic recently and I am sick of the lack of welsh political analysis or gossip in the welsh papers (his main articles seem to be weds afternoon "what issue can I rip off/write up now?". I'm bored of him. If there is a proper chance of you taking his place then I'll start sending you some gossip...is this serious?

Hopefully you wont indulge Matt's lazy attempts at using blogs to fill his article and pass them off as his own work.

That's a bit unfair. Matt's a good journalist. The problem is the rag that he works for.

anon, this is serious. But for one week only.
You've been a bit harsh on Matt, though.
