Together, we delivered on our promises. Extra jobs, more money for schools - we did what we said we would do. Today represents the half-way point on our journey, on that decade of delivery. And so today I make six new promises to you, the people of Wales.
Holly McCarthy Theatre is a form of entertainment that continually pushes boundaries. In a quest to break down barriers for actors and audiences, on...
It would be wrong for broadcasters in Wales to exclude the Greens and Ukip. Their support has grown significantly since the last Assembly elections. And both parties are in the race to secure their first Assembly Members this May. It's only right that they should face the scrutiny of the public and other parties.
As we grow older, we tend to hide the cantankerousness and innocence that formed such a large part of our youth. Perhaps social convention, or some vague idea of acting grown up, forces us to mask these ostensibly childish attributes.
The 'power' of nature is everywhere - volcanoes bursting from beneath the earth's crust, lightning turning the world white for a split second or a lio...
On a visit to Wales last year, Barack Obama was blown away - praising the country for its "extraordinary beauty, wonderful people and great hospitality". It's easy to see why he was so impressed: with medieval castles, rugged cliffs and grassy plains, Wales offers myriad opportunities for escaping into history and nature.
Congratulations to the Republic of Ireland, on their qualification for Euro 2016. It will be good to have the Irish at a major tournament again. I ha...
Is it down to bad luck that Wales have experienced so many injuries in their backs? or is it the pre-season conditioning that has cost Wales, the intensive training which has led to over exertion in matches, resulting in injury?
We in the west can't afford for China to go into deep recession -the country's government is struggling to control this current economic sneeze but I am confident that it will.
2016 offers a significant opportunity for Wales; a chance to free our communities from Labour's rusty old shackles, clear potential for a fresh approach to public services and - ultimately - the real possibility of a successful new Wales.
Last Wednesday I went to Wales. Not for a typically British summer holiday (although we were all wearing waterproofs), but at the invitation of local campaigners of the United Valleys Action Group on the day Caerphilly County Council decided whether to approve or reject a proposed opencast coal mine at Nant Llesg.
To give future leaders an opportunity to become those leaders, the current crop of Welsh leaders must do many things. They must first stand up the constitutional tide approaching, securing a fair settlement for Wales, as well as making sure that they are more ambitious and enfranchise young people into politics
Yesterday, Welsh assembly members issued a long-overdue warning over the government's failure to effectively tackle poverty. While poverty in most regions of the UK has fallen in recent years, in Wales the figure has remained static.
Labour is in a state of crisis. In the opening weeks of Parliament, the SNP appears to be the main opposition to a Conservative Party which is set to push through its program of austerity and make significant changes to the way human rights operate in this country.
With great fanfare, National Trust has recently acquired the Great Orme. With 'Orme' being Viking for serpent, we have many sea serpents in Wales, including the National Trust ones at Worm's Head in the south and Ynys Lochtyn in the middle - we now have one guarding north Wales for us.
Most people couldn't pick Leanne Wood out of a line up of generally forgettable politicians. So with the General Election over and done with, is that it for Wales? Not quite. In 2016 those of us registered to vote in Wales will be heading back to the polling booths to vote in the Welsh Assembly elections.
