Small nation - big country ?

Wales is not a big nation and it is easy to get carried away by the arguments about whether the Cabinet should represent the geogrpahy of Wales, or use the skills/experience as the First Minister sees fit. However there is no arguing it is quite a big country with difficult geography and, in spite of the new air link, there is a need to feel connected with power in the democracy.

That is why I will look for Deputy Minister from the North to join Carl Sargeant in the work of the new government. Far from being a show stopper but important in how we are perceived.
