Polls to take the heat off Lembit.

Just had it confirmed that there is to be Opinion poll by ITV Wales on Thursday - so look out for Nick Speed telling us how excited he is by the new findings and how there is everything still to play for. And there is to be a Western Mail/Beaufort Poll 'early next week'. Good, It is a real shame that we bloggers have so little evidence to argue about.

And it would save poor old Lembit from taking so much stick. I'm starting to feel sorry for the poor chap. But not enough to stop me sharing with you the latest offering from yesterday's Sunday Mirror. Blimey. This blog once used the word 'todger' strictly in a medical reference. I didn't know it was a word in common usage. And even yesterday's Sunday Times has the 'Lib Dem love machine' enjoying 'a fact finding tour of the Southern Balkans',nod, nod, wink, wink. He may have to apply for the job of President of Estonia sooner than he intended.

And I hear that the Western Mail is giving all AMs an end-of-term report over the next few days. Can I just slip in here how highly I rate the outstandingly good Western Mail - and remind Martin Shipton that he is this blogs reigning 'Journalist of the Year'. Mind you, this sycophancy never works. I tried it with Ashok last Xmas - and it made not a blind bit of difference. This blog will fearlessly publish the report in full when it has been completed next Friday. Just my small contribution towards distracting readers from poring over all this salacious Lembit stuff.

C'mon Glyn. Enough with all the in talk. What's Mrs Jones from Welshpool going to make of that?

According to Vaughan Roderick it's a recall poll on Thursday, with the same people as before being asked about their vote. Still, it will make an interesting comparison to the last one

I saw part of the end of term report in today's Western Mail. They gave you 8/10. Personally I think you were robbed. We need more free thinkers in politics.

8 out of 10 is the same mark as German. I'd demand that the board remark your exam paper. Isn't intersting how many of the girls seem to have failed to make their mark in the assembly according to old Shipton. Hardly surprising given the way in which Anita Gale and others fixed the Labour selections in 1999.

I don't think Mrs Jones reads this blog. And I was rather pleased that Shippo gave me 8. Am looking forwards to tomorrow's poll - and will post my predictions.
