Household names

It's a big story, leading most bulletins and newspapers.

So who do Welsh Labour put up to explain Gordon Brown's decision not to call a general election?

The Secretary of State for Wales, perhaps? His deputy? Welsh MPs in the Brown Government, perhaps at the Foreign Office?

The secretary of the Welsh Group of Labour MPs? An MP in a marginal seat relieved (reprieved?) by the decision?

Er, no. The Wales Labour Party offered broadcasters the Welsh Assembly Member for Caerphilly.

Perhaps the age of spin really is over - or perhaps the more relevant guests were too embarrassed to appear.

Jeff is the only one who will do it. I used to call him the Eric Joyce of Welsh politics.
