70 for 8 - time for a media feast ?

Not the cricket but the confirmation from Rhodri Morgan AM, as he celebrates eight years as First Minister, that he will step down as the FM at the age of 70.

With a week to go before the Welsh Labour conference in Llandudno I have little doubt this will spark a mini media feast about who can follow in Rhodri's steps. Each speeach and visit analysed for leadership ambition. I hope those having any interest in the role focus on getting the job of government done first, as it is delivery and action that will deliver a Labour First Minister not beauty parades.
