IT'S always nice when a couple so clearly matched come together, so we're sure you'll join us in celebrating the hand-holding flirtation going on between the British National Party and Carmarthenshire-based pressure group Christian Voice.
The BNP has come out in support of Christian Voice's leader, Stephen Green, who was arrested in Cardiff last weekend for handing out leaflets at the city's Mardi Gras advertising his own view on homosexuality (to summarise: he's not a fan).
"There is much common ground between the pro-Christian BNP and 'conservative' Christians, despite what the liberal bishops and cardinals would have the world believe," says the BNP's website.
Still, they've got a bit of a way to go until this turns into a full-on love affair.
Last year, Mr Green described the BNP as a "racist, white-supremacist, paganist, volkist, anti-Christian, evolutionist and anti-semitic organisation," adding "We want nothing to do with the BNP."
Awww. C'mon boys - play nicely.
* By the way, according to their website, the BNP's anonymous Welsh correspondent was in Powys last week, visiting the home of leader Nick Griffin, where they popped for a carvery at one of Nick's local watering holes. The name of this pub? The Black Boy.
Welsh pro-Blair site reveals the PM's phantom followers
Despite what you might have read and heard over the past week, not everybody wants to see Mr Tony Blair quit his job straight away.
There are, strange as it seems, a hardy band of souls still desperate for the under-fire PM to cling on to power as long as possible, just to spite Gordon Brown.
The online home of these believers is 'Keeping the Faith', a website where you can pledge your allegiance to Mr Tony 'against a minority of MPs who want to bring him down'.
'Whilst we do not think the Prime Minister has never made a mistake, we do think he has been the greatest Labour leader of our time and as Prime Minister, has changed Britain for the better.
'We believe he should be allowed to get on with the job, without distractions from disloyal MPs.
'He has earned the right to step down with dignity at a time of his choosing.'
The list of those who have already signed up to the pledge makes fascinating reading. Not because they're particularly noteworthy; more because they've got, um, unlikely names.
Radclyffe Clewett has signed up, along with Nathanael Woolery. Also there are Dusty Wickes, Quin Wible, Deemer Eiford and Harland Marriman. Despite obviously being keen Labour supporters, none are actually on the electoral register...
But more interesting still is the identity of who is behind the site. The owner's identity is kept anonymous, but happily, security is so lax even somebody with this writer's brief knowledge of technology quickly can quickly find out the site is based in Wales, and was set up by one David Taylor.
Oddly enough, Leighton Andrews, the Labour AM for the Rhondda, has a researcher called David Taylor who specialises in websites...could it be?
'Yeah,' says a surprised Mr Taylor. 'It is me but not just me, it's about half-a-dozen of us involved.
'If any of the names on there are suspect or turn out to be not genuine, then we'll take them off, but we've already had 4,000 e-mail addresses and names to go on there. It's been phenomenally successful and taken off far quicker than we expected, so I suppose a few might have slipped through.
'The reason we haven't got our own names and e-mail addresses emblazoned across it is because it's not supposed to be about us, it's just about showing support for Tony Blair.'
It's not the first time Mr Andrew's flunky has become the story himself. He was long believed to be the brains behind Natwatch, a website devoted to exposing the startling revelation that Plaid Cymru are nationalists, while he has often denied being the man who gave the order for octogenarian troublemaker Walter Wolfgang to be ejected from last year's Labour Conference for heckling Jack Straw.
'You're obviously going to quote me on this,' he says, astutely, 'but I want to make it clear that this is nothing to do with Leighton Andrews AM. I work part-time for him and did this in my own time.'
Happy to make that clear, David. And all the best to you, Dusty Wickes and Quin Wible with the campaign.
I take my hat off to Wayne...
An apology: in recent weeks, this column has given the impression that Wayne David, Labour MP for Caerphilly, was a Blairite drone who agreed with everything his party's leadership ever did and said, had no independent thought of his own, and would happily have gone on Good Morning Wales to defend the slaughter of the first-born were Mr Blair ever to suggest it as a policy.
In the past week, with Mr David quitting his high-profile post as Parliamentary Private Secretary to Defence Minister Adam Ingram in order to voice his displeasure at Mr Blair's clinging to office, it has become clear that Mr David is a radical, a visionary, a true socialist and an honourable success to the like of Hardie, Bevan, Foot and the like.
Living on Ming and a prayer
If nothing else, the Labour Conference should be a bit of a wheeze this year.
Which is more than can be said for the Liberal Democrats, who are determined to put the kibosh on murmurings to the press from unhappy members about the performance of leader Sir Ming Campbell.
Lib Dem HQ paged all their MPs last week, informing them that: 'If you are contacted by media conducting surveys in the run-up to conference, press office can provide rec answers.'
By 'rec', we can only presume they mean 'recommended' rather than 'reckless', although you never can tell with the Lib Dems.
How the big Blair push is more like a domino rally
Tony Blair was 'rocked', as they say, on Wednesday, when eight members of the Government, including three Welsh MPs, quit their posts in a bid to force Mr Tony to push off to the US lecture circuit forthwith.
To the untrained eye, it may seem like a spontaneous uprising of like-minded members with similar views.
Let's take a look, shall we?
Mark Tami (Alyn & Deeside MP) shares a Westminster office with Tom Watson (defence minister). Both quit.
Tami is a member of the Welsh Amicus group, along with Wayne David (Caerphilly) and Ian Lucas (Wrexham), who also handed their notice in.
Interestingly, members of Amicus' West Midlands group include Watson and Birmingham Perry Barr MP Khalid Mahmood, another to quit in the week, while Telford MP David Wright's constituency is in... the West Midlands.
That only leaves two more quitters, Chris Moles and Ian Wright.
Watson ran the by-election campaign which got Moles elected to Parliament while Wright's flatmate is... Tom Watson!
Sounds like the Tami-Watson office at Westminster could be an interesting place to hang out over the next few months.
