Ann Clwyd reveals she's so disillusioned with the Welsh Assembly that she thinks she was wrong to have backed devolution in two referendums.Read the full story ›
Cynon Valley MP Ann Clwyd, who campaigned for a Welsh Assembly in both the 1979 and 1997 referendums, has told tonight's Sharp End why she now thinks devolution was wrong. She's interviewed about her memoirs by ITV Cymru Wales Political Editor Adrian Masters. He asks her about an account in her book of a conversation with the former Labour minister Denzil Davies, who never supported devolution. Ann Clwyd reveals that she told him that he'd been right and she'd been wrong.
I would have preferred after all this time to be able to speak positively but you know, devolution was not meant to be about a worse service in Wales than in the rest of the country. Devolution was not meant to be about that.
- Sharp End is on ITV Cymru Wales at 11:15pm tonight
- Rebel with a Cause, by Ann Clwyd, is published by Biteback tomorrow, £25.

Labour AMs have agreed to back the UK Government's Wales Bill when it's debated in the Senedd today.
Although the bill includes significant new powers for the Assembly, the Welsh Government has argued that it also gives ministers at Westminster new opportunities to curtail devolution.
The UK Government had made it clear that it would not over-ride the Assembly if it refused legislative consent for the Wales Bill to be passed. It also said that a new deal with the Treasury on how the Welsh Government is funded would be dropped if the bill did not go ahead.
The decision to back the bill was taken at a meeting of the Assembly Labour group on Monday evening.
As the Conservatives are also committed to supporting the UK Government's legislation, it now seems certain to pass when the vote's taken in the Senedd tomorrow.
As the party who delivered devolution for Wales we have rightly adopted a challenging, but responsible approach towards the passage of the Wales Bill.
This is not the Bill we would have developed and it is not the Bill that Wales deserves. However, on balance this legislation will give the country more constitutional certainty and the fiscal framework in particular represents a real step forward.
After a considered debate, the Labour Group has decided to vote in favour of allowing the UK Government to proceed.
