|I know many people dream of this, but it's time|
to wake them up; silly season's almost over.
2016's silly season has been a classic. The period between the end of July and the start of September always brings out the creative side in politicians, their press officers and producers of yellow journalism as they try to draw attention to themselves, keeping eyes focused on pages and screens amidst other distractions.

Update 17/08/2016 : Nathan Gill has made his choice - he's keeping both jobs. Bizarrely, he's leaving the UKIP Assembly group to sit as an Independent, but will remain a UKIP member, UKIP MEP for Wales and leader of UKIP's Welsh branch. You couldn't make it up. Do-do-dodododo-do-do-do-do.
Another Update 18/08/2016 : Just when you thought the hole couldn't be dug any deeper, Channel 4 News reveal this little problem....I may have to return to that once more details come out.
It's taken them just over three months, but – as widely anticipated – the signs are that the UKIP Assembly group is beginning to dismantle itself.

- The First Minister believed the vote to leave the EU could lead to a federal UK, adding that he wanted to avoid Wales becoming “an annexe to England”. At an extraordinary meeting of the British-Irish Council in Cardiff on July 22nd, the First Minister said any future EU withdrawal deal should be ratified by the four UK parliaments, saying they needed to “work together to map out a successful way forward”.
