Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The theory is that too many Welsh MP's stood for election, splitting their votes

BBC News - Labour's shadow cabinet will have Welsh MP

  • Peter Hain - 97
  • Chris Bryant - 77
  • Kevin Brennan - 64
  • David Hanson - 38
  • Ian Lucas - 34
  • Wayne David - 30
  • Huw Irranca-Davies - 28
  • Alun Michael - 11
  • Candidates polling 100 votes or more made the shadow cabinet


Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

I agree the Welsh MPs split their votes too much (which is why Labour should us a proportional system instead of the bloc vote, to elect the shadow cabinet).

I am currently watching the BBC Parliament channel, where by coincidence Chris Bryant is leading for Labour on the committee stage of the Parliamentary elections legislation. I think he has more of a political future than Peter Hain has left.
