Some commentary…

I’ve had a few appearances in the media over the last few days, commenting on the latest Barometer poll and the broader current political situation.

Last Sunday I appeared on BBC Radio Wales, to speak on Vaughan Roderick’s Sunday Supplement show about prospects for the new government: you can find the show here (I appear just after the new bulletin) https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000751z

After the release of our new Welsh Political Barometer poll I had a fun time with Adrian Masters of ITV Wales recording the following piece, which ITV put out on their YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-0JuYMcbtEc&feature=youtu.be

Adrian and I were then joined by Delyth Jewell of Plaid Cymru for this week’s Sharp End show: you can watch the show here: https://www.itv.com/walesprogrammes/sharp-end/sharp-end-july-29th

To round out a busy Monday I also appeared on Radio 4’s The World Tonight to discuss ‘The Union’: you can find the show here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m00075k0

And on Tuesday I appeared on Radio Wales again, speaking to Jason Mohammad: I come on just after 5:50 in the show available here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m00075h2

To fill up my spare hours, I also wrote the following piece for the New Statesman, about Welsh Labour’s current travails: https://www.newstatesman.com/politics/staggers/2019/07/could-labour-s-century-long-dominance-welsh-politics-be-coming-end

I’ll be back later in the week with analysis of the Brecon and Radnor by-election.

    You made Protic speechless! Best outcome of the day! Shutting down that vile, divisive, hateful, language hating, bigot down by reason & academic thought is already a brilliant outcome. Never mind the great coverage and a level, even handed, considered, evidence based commentary of how it actually is! You’re a MENSCH, a Welsh Mensch! I loves you, I does! (Platonically of course)
