    Default Trouble at Plaid Cymru Mill as AM arrested for drunken driving; has to be reshuffled.

    More trouble at Plaid mill as a young AM gets drunk and then gets in the car:

    BBC News - Plaid Cymru AM Bethan Jenkins arrested for drink-driving

    She has been reshuffled out of her "minister for fun" post, and suspended:

    Comment: many people die each year from drunk driving, so this constitutes a problem for PC , one it can ill afford.

    If she was in this country she would get off there would not be a word about it , we only do working class people over here.

    Interesting point, given that PC is the nearest thing Wales has to FF, and that FF would certainly not get arrested for it!

    It could be. Interestingly, the FWA seems to be holding a lot of ceremonies in Wales recently and turning up to events that PC members and politicans are also present at.

    Anyone heard of the Lib Dem AM who got blind drunk, fell over & landed in court for attacking the NHS staff who were sorting him out?

    Or what about the one about the ex Welsh Tory leader who turned up at the Assembly to engage in a drunken rant criticising his successor?

    Or how about the married 71 year old Labour AM who got plastered, picked up a woman & took her to the 5 star St David's Hotel in Cardiff Bay, before both were ordered to leave because of their obnoxious behaviour? The said septegenarian six weeks later attended two functions in the one day, collapsed & found himself in the neurological unit in the University Hospital, Cardiff, is far to unwell to attend the Assembly. His party has as a result lost their wafer thin majority in the Assembly, & found themselves having to barter with Plaid Cymru to get their budget passed.

    No? I thought not, factual enjoys washing the dirty linen of nationalist parties in public, but stays mum about the far more numerous (& entertaining) indiscretions of unionist politicians.

    Whataboutery is alive and well in Wales I see.

    Sinn Féin politicians are noted for sobriety - Neither Gerry Adams nor Martin McGuinness drink.

    She hangs out with Glyn Wise of Big Brother fame so her judgement should have been called into question long ago. He infamously masturbated on live TV.
