Spin Doctor or Party Leader

I had Radio Wales on in the car this morning as I drove to work, and wasn’t too sure who was being interviewed as I missed the start of the item. It was just after 8 am, so it was THE interview and it was certainly from the Conservative conference. But the responses did not sound like those of a leader.

It was spin, spin, spin with a few sound bites thrown in for good measure. All so disappointing as there was a great opportunity for a party leader to be stating his case for The Welsh Conservatives, but he gave the opportunity up for the greater party line. He gave no explanations, no useful localisation and no sense of vision.

But then, the punch line: it was the leader after all. It was Andrew RT Davies and not a party spinner. And it was so disappointing to hear such narrow UK party based responses when Wales needs some change.
