ViewpointsRhodri, politician... and Marxist comedian.

The report in Friday's Echo about the election battle heating up, omitted to mention the fact that the laughs were also getting better.

Rhodri Morgan's quip about listing the Assembly's top 250 achievements was priceless.

Do us a favour Rodders! Get a Groucho Marx lookalike to read out this list.

'One, free bus travel for the over 60s. Two, free prescriptions (long pause followed by) OK, so I'm 248 achievements light but we all tell porkies sometimes.'

Strides from stage amidst cloud of cigar smoke and thunderous applause as band strikes up 'Make em laugh.' I head for exit before they come round with the hat.
