Jeremy, Plaid Cymru and how to do economic competence

YouTube video

I have to confess to being something of a fan of Jeremy Paxman but his smugness can occasionally require use of the TV brick or alternatively a viewing of this excerpt from Newsnight below.

It is quite an old clip, having originally been posted by Dewi (Slugger’s Welsh + Rugby correspondent) around election time and which was perhaps a little too concealed in his post – I only just stumbled on it recently.

About two and a half minutes minutes into the discussion, poor Jeremy’s wheels start to come off. The lasting impression is not just of the unfortunate Paxers in a muddle but of a brilliant performance by Plaid’s senior economic advisor.

Sinn Féin take note!
