    A change from the DUP being the party saying 'no'.

    Certainly a positive move - it's a step along the North of Ireland's road to being a normally-functioning democracy.

    Yes, Northern Ireland now has someone to hold the DUP/ SF to account; long overdue!

    Interesting afternoon in the Senedd.

    Elin Jones is the new Presiding Officer, Ann Jones is the Deputy Presiding Officer.

    We then came to the election of the new First Minister, with the results as follows:
    Carwyn Jones – 29 votes (28 Labour, 1 Lib Dem)
    Leanne Wood – 29 votes (11 Plaid, 11 Tory, 7 UKIP)
    A dead heat! :eek: Assembly adjourned for further negotiations.
    While being in East Wales since Tuesday ( Home now )i brought a welsh newspaper and i admit i do feel very sorry for Jones !! He looked absolutely distraught when the result was declared

    My avatar has changed without me doing anything. Bizarre. Is the random man with a moustache a generic TSR avatar?

    Edit: random man = Lloyd George!

    Newcastle Uni voted to disaffiliate from the NUS, the second in the week after Lincoln voted to do so on Monday. Hopefully, Exeter will vote the same way tomorrow morning.
