Thought for the Day

Andrew Pierce, a columnist at the Daily Mail, contrasts the political representation of Wales and Massachusetts. The American state, he says, has a mere ten elected representatives while Wales has 40 MPs and 60 AMs. Pierce forgot about the 4 MEPS.

So is Massachusetts really run by just 10 representatives? Of course not. Apart from its 2 US Senators and 10 Congressmen, it also has 40 State Senators and 160 members of the State House of Representatives.

It's an unfortunate fact but a lie does indeed go half way around the world before the truth gets its slippers on.
