Not fit for the 21st century and, frankly, an embarrassment. Also, if these were the rules for any form of employment opportunity/job description it would be regarded as discrimination.

- there are women/girls in Wales using socks, kitchen roll, etc. to manage their periods. - women with a heavy flow may need to change products every hour. None of this is ok. None of this will ever be ok. None of this will be solved through a few packets of budget towels. 2/2

How can Wales become a more caring society? Do you have any examples of projects or initiatives that you’d like to share with us?

Sad to hear that the brilliant Neil Sinclair has passed away. Lucky to work with him a few times over the years and the way he evoked old Cardiff through his tales of Tiger Bay- like this short we made- was a joy.

1839, 1922 & now 2019? Dates when political events in Newport changed the course of UK politics. Probably not likely if this from proves accurate, but in this climate a still feels significant. Wishing you well , whatever tonight's outcome.

The brilliant is on tonight which means it'll be on iPlayer for a while too. Do yourself a favour and watch this film! It's a glorious love letter to music and to Wales.

Was lucky enough to get a review copy of this, it's well worth snapping up the first copy you see! A really brave second novel.

This is the kind of honest, empathetic piece about Mother's Day that we need to see more of:

6/6 or just the day-to-day challenges, without being compared to each other. That is all!

5/6 and recognised that we need to support each other, not turn parenting in to an artifical struggle to be the best. Being a Mum is hard enough as it is, whether you're facing additional difficulties...

4/6 There's no regard for Mums who might be struggling silently with low self-esteem, post-natal depression or anxiety, or just generally having a bad day and not feeling like they're Super Mum today. I'd much rather articles talked about the realities of being a parent...

3/6 I'll say it again, I'm in no way criticising the women here, they are amazing, but so are so many Mums. What bugs me is the continual media compulsion to run competitions to name 'the best' in a category that is just not a competition.

2/6 Being a Mum is NOT a competition, neither is it necessarily about doing anything spectacular. If you're a Mum and you're doing what's best for your child and love them unconditionally then you're already the best Mum they could have.

1/6 This kind of article & headline is making me really mad this year. Why the hell does Mother's Day have to be turned into yet another competition? The women here are awesome, no doubt about it, but we really don't need competitons which pit Mums against each other for prizes.

I was well underway by the time I had second-thoughts. A breakdown of how the Welsh MPs voted on tonight's different options:

It feels as if all we've learned this evening is that there is seemingly no limit to the number of options upon which MPs cannot agree. Based on numbers alone, surely proposals for a customs union and prospect of a now merit serious debate?
