Was it something we said?

In the five months (next week) since Gordon Brown took over as Prime Minister, he's visited Iraq, the United States, Portgual, France, SNP-run Scotland, Northern Ireland and a few other parts of the globe.

There's one corner of the United Kingdom yet to be visited by the new PM. You can probably guess where it is.

Shadow Welsh Secretary Cheryl Gillan tried to find out more about Mr Brown's travel plans via parliamentary questions.

Here's the exchange, from Hansard:

Cheryl Gillan: "To ask the Prime Minister when he last visited Wales; and when he next expects to visit Wales."

The Prime Minister: "A list of my UK visits will be published in the usual way following the end of the financial year."

It's good to see the age of evasion is no more in this modern, transparent, new political era.
