Sharp End returns

By Adrian Masters

Sharp End is back after its Christmas break to cast its beady eye over Welsh politics once again. It’s raining outside in Cardiff Bay so we’re all very glad to be warm and dry inside our Assembly office.

What do we have for you tonight? Well the political year has begun with a blazing row between the Assembly Government and the Wales Office over the bid for powers on organ donation. You can read my summary of the row so far here. I can tell you the argument’s not showing any signs of abating – on the contrary it appears to be escalating – and that’s not even taking into account the sensitivity of the idea behind the bid itself.

The chair of the Sports Council for Wales, Laura McAllister, tells us why she doesn’t think sport will become a political football (sorry) and how there are difficult choices to be made now that spending on sport is being cut.

We can’t ignore the looming referendum on strengthening the Assembly’s powers. Lynn Courtney plays her cards right and looks at what it’s all about.

And there’s every chance we’ll have more to talk about too with my guests Cathy Owens, former Assembly government adviser now project director for Amnesty in Wales; Conservative AM Jonathan Morgan and Plaid Cymru AM Dai Lloyd.

Join us at 10.35 pm ITV1 Wales. If you can’t watch the programme on TV you can always catch-up with it on our website: www.itv.com/wales
