In a number of previous blog posts I might have implied that First Minister Mark Drakeford was just a typical principle-free Welsh Labour careerist, a spineless stooge of capitalism and a compromised clone who spouts vacuous soundbites and hypocritical greenwash. But, following his decision to axe the M4 ‘relief’ road, I now realise that I was wholly mistaken and he is, in fact, the opposite.

“Well, how’s that?”

“Apart from the excessive use of adjectives, it’s a bit grudging isn’t it? Where’s the actual praise?”¬†

“I happen to like adjectives, they’re informative, enriching and entertaining.”

“I rest my case.”
