THIS IS THE BLOG OF COLIN JONES, RHYL TOWN COUNCILLOR: BODFOR WARD
The opinions expressed in this blog are entirely my own and not the views of the town council.
Secretary of State for Wales Paul Murphy, MP for Torfaen, pictured above (centre) was tainted fairly or unfairly by revelations about MPs expenses and has been thrown out of Gordon Brown's cabinet in a recent reshuffle.
Mr. Murphy was preceded - and has been succeeded - as Secretary of State for Wales by Peter Hain, MP for Neath, pictured left and right.
Mr. Hain resigned from ministerial office in January 2008 when it came to light that his campaign for Deputy Leadership of the Labour Party had failed to declare donations amounting to more than £100,000.
Mr. Hain was subsequently cleared of personal wrong-doing in this matter but he is not exactly a breath of fresh air.
