Peter Rogers: waiting for Doctors advice on whether to stand

 

There is a very interesting analysis of Ynys Môn in politics.co.uk which features interviews with all three major candidates. I will be returning to it in more depth later, but in the meantime the part which really jumps out is this:
At present Rogers' participation in the election is not 100% guaranteed. Recent heart surgery means he is awaiting doctors' advice on whether or not he should put himself through the strain of a full-on general election campaign.

The article is datelined today (6 March) so I assume this is the latest information. Obvious that after such a major operation he would await doctors orders I suppose, but slightly at odds with the bullish interview Peter recently gave to the BBC on the The Politics Show.

What a shame politics.co.uk couldn't get basic facts correct: Ieuan Wyn Jones did not loose in 2001 - he had stepped down as MP because he had been elected AM.

Dyfed - perhaps it never occurred to the author that a sitting MP would relinquish his seat to become merely an AM... ;)

Trivia question: Who was the last Anglesey MP to loose an election?

Yops - I think it was the Megan Lloyd George in 1951.
