An invisible nation no more

Members of the Welsh Assembly have occasionally been known to accuse Fleet Street of ignoring their institution.

There will then be cheers from Cardiff Bay for The Times after the newspaper included two AMs in its list of the nine most outrageous expenses claims ever.

Welsh Tory leader, Nick Bourne, may be less than thrilled to see his taxpayer-funded purchase of an iPod at number 5 (four places behind Jacqui Smith's porn).

The paper doesn't point out that he did pay back the cash, although it's cheeky enough to mention that he also put a trouser press on expenses too.
