Still its Leighton's departure that's the main story
His position was probably uuntenable after it was revealed that not only was he slapped down for posing with fellow AM Mick Antoniw and Rhondda MP Chris Bryant and Shadow Welsh Secretary Owen Smith, the Pontypridd MP, to oppose radical NHS changes that could see an A& E unit downgraded at the Royal Glamorgan Hospital.
Only for him to be slapped down By First Minister Carwyn Jones
He then resigned after another conflict of interests when Carwyn Jones told him he had broken the Ministerial Code by campaigning against the closure of a primary school in his Rhondda constituency.
“Leighton Andrews wrote to every Cabinet Member for Education last year, instructing local authorities to increase the pace of reductions in surplus places, or the Welsh Government would take direct intervention itself. only for him to campaign against his own policy when it involved a school in his own Constituency.
So a policy of a Minister telling Education Authorities to close schools But Not in My Constituency.
Maybe Leighton Andrews was standing up for his constituency but it was sheer hypocrisy to do so when a Minister especially one who seems to be opposing his own policy when it came that policy being implemented in his own Assembly seat.
He may hope that by portraying himself as standing up for his constituency especially with Plaids leader breathing down his neck but it may be that the voters of the Rhondda See his hypocrisy for what it is.
He would do well to remember
