The Vale of Glamorgan Labour Assembly Member Jane Hutt has emerged as a key figure in the formation of the new Labour-run Welsh Assembly Government – a government expected to take office today after a week of stalemate.

Hutt was seen to be a close confidante of Labour former First Minister Carwyn Jones a week ago when he waited for the result of the ballot conducted by AMs last week to decide whether he would continue in office.

The result of that ballot was an inconclusive dead-heat with Plaid Cymru Leader Leanne Wood – a thunderbolt turn of events which appeared to leave Carwyn Jones weeping in his seat, his authority and public image in tatters.

Today the AMs will vote again for their choice of First Minister – but after a week of negotiations, a deal has now been stitched-up with Plaid Cymru to keep the Labour Party in charge of Wales for what could be another five years – through until 2021.

The Labour Party has already been in power in the Welsh Assembly for 17 unbroken years – even though its support amongst voters has steadily declined over that period.

    I’d love to see Jane Hutt take over as leader of the Welsh Labour Party and become the First Minister.

    • Rachel says:

      After the mess she made as Health Minister. I worked with someone who wrote her speeches etc. she didn’t have a clue what was going on in Wales.

    • pompousfruit says:

      She was a very good health minister. She had to make some difficult decisions. Far better than Brian Gibbons who succeeded her.

      • Llyr Webber says:

        Pompousfruit: Jane Hutt had to be removed from office as Health Minister in 2005 because of concerns about growing hospital waiting lists.

  2. Philip Rapier says:

    Henry V – “Harry of Monmouth ” perhaps the bravest Welshman that ever lived cried several times at Agincourt before and after he slaughtered the French in their thousands
    Do you honestly expect those “heroes” that would dance with UKIP – and the Devil- adopting neo Fascisti -junta tactics- to have an ounce of patriotic emotion?
    If indeed a show of passion and emotion was demonstrated for the unashamed love of a Nation that is one of the most blessed and talented in Europe I am very proud of the events and even more so at the result.
    For the benefit of “price of anything value of nothing ” bean counter contributors TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY THROUGH ASSEMBLY NOT SITTING FOR ONE WEEK including salaries £2500000 plus c £71.384 worth of AM’s Salary

    • Kevin Mahoney says:

      One would have thought that there’s a slight difference between witnessing the slaughter of thousands and drawing a vote in the Welsh assembly.

      It’s a little disconcerting that First crybaby Jones reacts in such a way to a simple vote of confidence.

    • Ann Other says:

      Gosh. It’s extremely difficult to work out what you are trying to say. Could you try again?

      • Andrew sarchus says:

        If you refer to K Mahoney? well I can understand him! Even Lacklustre Lindsay can.

  3. Andrew sarchus says:

    OH no – go on then tell us why?

  4. Richard says:

    £2 1/2 million for a weeks lost including salaries, do not understand that figure???? Explain? to a lay person who is not up with the corrupt salaries in Welsh government.

  5. Andrew sarchus says:

    Pompous knows- tell us pompy

    • pompousfruit says:

      I’ve met Jane Hutt on a number of occasions but I’m not a close confidante of hers.

  6. The Tax payer says:

    Or. bless him he looked so sad last week 😹

  7. Andrew sarchus says:

    M Webber, PompyFruit just fires off without actually knowing anything-met Hutt so will be all fawned up. NHS is still a disaster in Wales as well though. Gobbles up circa 40% of our £15 billion plus (Barnett) budget. NHS has the tree highest paid civil servants “helping” run it including Penarth man and is still a mess. C Jones getting back in is a disaster but is there a great alternative? We’re in a right pickle.

    • pompousfruit says:

      To whoever you are as I know this is a sock account. The NHS would be in a far worse state if there wasn’t Welsh devolution or the Tories took control of the Welsh Assembly. There are problems because of less money from Central Government, more people in the country and an aging population.

  8. Andrew sarchus says:

    Oh very forensic. Conjecture and Daily Mail rhetoric type rules eh.
