Cliche-free zone

The Welsh attempt at a national male costume (obligatory rugby shirt and farmer's cap for boys at the school Eisteddfod) always struck me as a pretty poor attempt to keep up with the girls and their traditional hat/"ffedog" combination.

Anyway, as you can see below, Rhodri Morgan doesn't go in for such hackneyed symbols of national identity. This is a picture of him briefing the press in the Senedd today, where he told reporters: "We are known as throwing a good party in Brussels for St David's Day, shall I say."

He also said some interesting things about China which you will probably read about in tomorrow's papers, or on the wire now if you are a subscriber.
