Be care­ful what you wish for, Mr Drake­ford

MARK DRAKE­FORD is to be con­grat­u­lated on win­ning the vote for the po­si­tion of First Minister.

He says: “The choice has been made for a Labour Party which is am­bi­tious for a dis­tinc­tive Wales in a suc­cess­ful United King­dom.

“The choice for a Labour Party as a party in the rad­i­cal so­cial­ist tra­di­tion of Aneurin Bevan and Michael Foot and of Rhodri Mor­gan.”

Fine words, but may I re­mind him that Michael Foot’s man­i­festo for the gen­eral elec­tion of 1983 was de­scribed as the “long­est sui­cide note ever writ­ten”?

En­ter the Con­ser­va­tive Party and Margaret Thatcher.

Think on, Mr D!
