I think ex-Labour chief of Bridgend, Jeff Jones' solution to the problems caused by the Devolution Experiment would be different to mine, but this is still a cracker of an inditement on the present system and for good measure a kicking for Peter Hain:
“If you follow his (Mr Tango Man's) logic then this means that Welsh MPs will be second raters. I cannot see anyone in the future from Wales making an impact on the UK political scene. Our ill-thought-out devolved system will never develop into a proper federal system on the lines of many European countries and the United States. In those countries it is normal for politicians to show their quality at a regional level before being asked to lead at a national level. Can anyone honestly see any AM or MSP being seen as a future UK Cabinet Minister as would be the case in Germany where success at the Länder level is essential if you want to be a successful national politician."
