Ron Davies, the man who did so much to drive forward devolution for Wales when he was a Labour MP is going to stand as an independent in the forthcoming Welsh Assembly elections, according to the BBC.
However, just 9 months ago, Forward Wales, the party he joined after leaving Labour, claimed the Ron Davies was going to play a significant part in their assembly election campaign. No he is standing as an independent. Does Ron know what he is doing ?
I am personally of the opinion that Ron Davies has a lot to offer the politics of Wales, however, I think he is a flawed individual. I guess by standing in the seat he previously represented as an MP and AM it will show if he really is deserving of a place in the Welsh Assembly. Still, it makes the seat far more interesting than it might have been before and is another headache for Labour.
