I must admit I still Mark Drakeford rules banning shops selling non-essential items during Wales' firebreak lockdown are mistaken and should be reversed,.
On Sunday afternoon, Mr Drakeford said the implementation of the rules may be tweaked, but the "basic decision" behind the ban was the right one. petition on the issue has exceeded 60,000 signatures, making it the largest ever submitted to the Senedd.
Although I accept the reason for the ban, i am not sure it was a wise decision especially as it has given Unionists politicians over the boarder an excuse however lame to atack the Senedd and devolution. Even though it was something that apparently the Tories wanted ,
Though there is still a strong argument that it encourages people to do the intended essential shopping and not to spend more time in the stores browsing.
Clearly it would be difficult for Mr Drakeford to back down completely as it would portray him as week.
Rather than praising him for listening the Tories would claim victory and probably also claim that we should be following Boris Johnson's plan even though it more disastrous than that of the Welsh Labour Government.
Personally I am prepared to face 17 days of Mark Drakeford making, what may be the wrong call, than months of Johnson corrupt, and inept handling.
