WEAK CONSERVATIVE AM'S

Has Nick Bourne lost the plot?, or is he so desperate to cling onto power that he will sacrifice the Welsh Conservatives to do it?.
Nick Bourne is not renown for his decision making skills as his episode with the iPod proved. His ability to put forward constructive criticism was shattered when he argued, wrongly, that Jane Hutt, Labour’s Education minister, wasn’t at an economic summit when she was!. His in-fighting with his own party is well documented, his own media team hate him.
He has now compounded his stupidity by allowing his arch-rival, Jonathan Morgan, to be pushed off the front bench in a re-shuffle. If you remember back in December I wrote a comment entitled “Nick Bourne Jump or Push”. Jonathan Morgan would have been the ideal candidate to replace Bourne but the Welsh Conservatives didn’t have the balls to make the right move and so now Bourne has used the excuse to get rid of his competitor.
Labour are now positioned to ride rough-shod all over the Conservatives and the weak Conservative AM’s were too blind to see it coming.

I've just read your last posting and I was wondering, are Nick Bourne and Nick Griffin related? Because it seems to me, judging by your article, they have a lot more in common than just a first name.

Chris,
Well, they both appear to be protecting themselves from any leadership challenges, that is a certainty. Of the two I would have to say that Nick Griffin is the better of the two, his successes of late put Nick Bourne into the shadows. Bourne is a weak leader, he is fragmenting the Welsh Conservatives and I can see a tremendous backlash on the horizon. Not that I have any love for Nick Bourne but this is just what Labour want, anything good for Labour is bad for everyone else!.
