Dewi Tri visits Labour Conference

So this weekend saw the final episode in the spring party conference series as Labour members from far and wide gathered in Swansea's Brangwyn Hall.

Eventually Politics Cymru was allowed entry and we are grateful to the Labour staff for allowing Dewi Tri to attend yesterday's events at such short notice. As many of you already know, due to security concerns - and, it must be said, our own sluggishness in applying for accreditation (how dare us assume that Labour would be as accommodating as the other parties!) - we were barred entry on Friday and Saturday.

But we are nothing if not persistent here at PC HQ and we gladly packed Dewi Tri off to the final day of conference where he bumped into Secretary of State for Wales, Paul Murphy.

In a wide-ranging interview the Minister was quizzed on the language LCO, Europe and Cardiff's relationship with Westminster.

Dewi also had a chat with Carwyn Jones and asked what values Rhodri Morgan's successor would need to bring to the table (he's very subtle is Dewi Tri!).

And last but not least, here's an interview with Leighton Veale, one of Labour's candidates for the European elections.

So plenty of fighting talk from all three Labour representatives but what are your thoughts on what each one had to say? Did Paul Murphy's response to Dewi Tri's question about the way the language LCO is being dealt with convince you?

Let us know.
