Translation of Vaughan Roderick's post: "Rhodri, Nick a Joe"
Copying one of Neil Kinnock's speeches was enough of a sin to force Joe Biden to bring an end to efforts to become the President of America in 1988. The only other memorable event in that election was the one that took place during an argument between the two vice-presidential candidates was when Lloyd Bentsen turned to Dan Quayle and destroyed him by saying: "Senator, I served with Jack Kennedy: I knew Jack Kennedy; Jack Kennedy was a friend of mine. Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy."
Rhodri Morgan did some borrowing of his own in today's [Tuesday's] questions session. For some reason "I know Jane Hutt...I work with Jane Hutt..." didn't work so well.
Despite that, Rhodri managed to destroy Nick Bourne today after he asked why Jane wasn't present in last Friday's economic summit. Unfortunately for Nick Jane attended the meeting and answered questions. Rhodri floored the Conservative leader by saying that.
To rub salt in the wound, minutes later Kirsty Williams gave her best performance since being elected leader of the Liberal Democrats.
Nick will be spitting blood knowing his leadership is being questioned. Another performance like today's could be fatal
