Black v Franks!

Who do we believe Peter Black or Chris Franks? Chris says that he opposed the Assembly Commission's decision to cease producing a Welsh translation of proceedings but Peter says it was unanimous. It can't be that difficult to recall how five people voted surely! And what about the minutes of the Commission meeting. I wonder what Lord Elis Thomas's recollection is like?

Is this reasonable? If I had voted a particular way on a key issue like this, I would make sure my view was recorded there and then in the minutes. Or leaked my outrage to the media at the time. That should be easy in the Cardiff Bay hot-house.

Ex-post facto recollections seem weak, do they not? I remain to be convinced.

It's the same with Local Authorities, if you don't ask they don't record how you vote, in this situation I would most certainly have recorded my vote.
