As to the alleged political bias of BBC Wales perhaps you missed Rod Richard's stint there?
Well I certainly haven't missed the Talfan Davies dynasty still ruling the roost as the head of BBC Wales, what an incredibly talented family that must be with such a succesion of the same family ascending one after the other to the top spot at BBC Wales
Now lets talk about the proact / react scheme that you mention, it's odd isn't it how some things come back to bite you on the backside especially when you paint them as one of the very rare successes that the buffoons down the Bay of Pigs have come up trumps with, when in fact perhaps the reality isn't perhaps quite so clear cut..
The very first product of the React scheme joined the company that I worked for (A gas engineering firm from Cwmbran as it happens) as an engineer I was the chaps supervisor (A very nice guy the chap was I must say)
The proud Welsh assembly contacted my firm after a week or so to request if the chap could pose for promotional photo's as they were so delighted with the scheme and proud of their initiative.
Photo's taken and plastered all over billboards the backs of buses on leaflets etc etc .
And heres the coincidence and irony of your highlighting of the scheme.
I had to spend the next couple of months looking at billboards and the backs of buses all over South Wales of photo's of the guy promoting the supposed success of at last one Assembly inspired scheme.............
Unfortunately the truth of the matter was that by the time the adverts appeared.... the product of the scheme, prompted by myself had been sacked weeks previously because he was so poorly trained that in my opinion he was a danger to himself and the public whose houses he was working in.
Not surprisingly we didn't see any adverts pointing out that the react programme perhaps wasn't as all that it might have been.
I do sympathise with the the unfortunate sheer coincidence and bad luck that you have responded to possibly the only guy in South Wales who could have recounted truthfully from first hand experience that little tale of woe on a project that you clearly hold very dear to your heart as a measure of competence of Carwyn's Mob.
Unfortunately it's another fail on this occasion.
Oh by the way, I also know the chap who now holds the title of the WDA at Companies house as Edwina and co were so incompetent that they let the company registration lapse and he nipped in to register it, and the WA solicitors have spent the last year or so sending him threatening letters demanding that he give it back.
It really makes one hairs stand up when listening to the tales of sheer and utter incompetence since the WDA was taken inhouse whatever the percieved failing of the original WDA might or might not have been.
So another subject that I'd advise that you keep well clear of if you don't wish to be taken to the cleaners in debate about the subject. I feel sure also that Vincent might well change his view of if he is made aware of some of the pertinent facts that I've listened too.
