Useful blog service

I occasionally exchange a cross word with Ordovicius (and often spell the blog name with various random spellings!) but will always acknowledge his useful contribution to Welsh blogging with views, analysis and translations of Welsh language articles like this one here. This helps take the debate beyond the immediate Welsh speaking target audience, and is vital to a bilingual country.
What is interesting to me now is the change of tune in nationalism, reflected in this article and other signals.
For example Deputy First Minister Ieaun Wyn Jones wrote in the Daily Post this week under the banner headline "We must see bigger picture". It was an article worthy of a Minister but just strikes me that only a short time ago Mr Jones would have been writing a very different article, in the same circumstances, from the opposition benches!!
Welcome to the hard world of government.
