Podcast #13 - What on Earth is the JCSI?!

It's a Thursday night so here's your weekly dose of news, views and reviews from Y Tri Dewi.

Not only do we welcome Dewi Un back after his week of sniffles, we also dive into the constitutional question once again. There's also a bit about this brand spanking new website. And Kirsty has now been leader for nearly 100 days - what effect has she had on the Lib Dems in Wales?

All this and much more from the three of us this week.

Welsh Ramblings's is a prejudiced bigot - that blog has descended into ridiculing disabled people.

READ THIS POST BELOW, THEN REMOVE THIS BIGOT'S BLOG FROM YOUR FAVOURITES LIST.

Sorry to be an anorak, but your original question was, "What twenty things can the Assembly do?" But in fact the twenty fields in Schudule 5 are just a series of headings, and the Assembly can ONLY legislate (pass measures) on those things that are specifically ADDED to Schedule 5 as "matters" in their respective fields. The heading itself does not give a blanket right to legislate in these fields.

The link you gave only has a few matters listed (the ones that applied when the Act was passed, I guess), however the schedule keeps changing as new "matters" are added to each field. The most helpful page is this, which also shows where LCO applications are in the pipeline:

If you want the latest "clean" version, it's here.

I'm embarrassed and a little ashamed at how geeky this comment will appear, so I'll remain anonymous.
