The Balkanisation of Wales

According to Betsan Powys Emyr Jones Parry could soon be leaving Wales for Bosnia.

Some people will of course claim that this means further devolution is dead, but to be honest I am not unhappy with his alledged departure.

Despite his original high profile appointment, he was almost invisible for months, then when he did start up his public consultations in Port Talbot it was a farce. I dont think he has been particularly succesful in his role, and I think that to appoint an international politician in this role was never going to work, with or without a Satnav.....

We need someone who can relate to the public and can communicate the message at the right level. If only Ray Gravell was still with us.
