Some might think its irrelevant gossip.
Rhodri Glyn Thomas was kicked out of a pub for lighting a cigarette (or possibly a cigar) on Wednesday night
The No Smoking in Pubs rule was made by the Assembly.
It is a law that I support, but one which, we all know, has pissed off a number of Welsh people who enjoyed a fag with a pint. The fact that a senior member of one of the parties that strongly supported the law should have been caught ignoring it is an embarrassment, not a joke.
Rhodri Glyn has been the minister who has ditched the Plaid promise for a Welsh Language newspaper, reneged on the promise for a Federal Welsh Medium Collage, failed to get a Welsh Language LCO before the Assembly, embarrassed himself by announcing the wrong winner in a book prize and has now added to his gaffs by smoking in a pub after voting to ban smoking in pubs.
The man is an imbecile and an embarrassment. Time for a Plaid reshuffle - the man has to go!
Wales Online now has the story in more detail and with a reaction from Nick Bourne
