The behaviour of opposition parties that forced the Assembly Government to refer the seating arrangements issue to a committee demonstrates the complete immaturity of the political process in Wales.
With the voting technology in the Assembly, this issue could have been dealt with in two minutes.
Instead the Welsh tax-payer is going to have to foot the bill for discussion on a matter that in other democracies would not be an issue.
As one of the youngest politicians in Wales, I hoped the Assembly would be an example to my generation of how democracy could be both modern and relevant.
I believed the significant achievements of the Assembly before the election meant politicians had grown-up and were fit to represent one of the newest and most inclusive democratic institutions. I guess I was wrong.
