Gareth Lewis: A whirlwind day for Vaughan Gething

What a day.

One that will go down in Welsh political history.

Just over 24 hours ago Vaughan Gething said he was confident of winning the vote.

Tonight he has had to clarify that he will not resign.

The debate preceding the vote was passionate and emotional.

At times the emotion spilled over with tears. The first minister had to wipe them away.

The Conservatives were lambasted by Labour MS Joyce Watson for calling the vote on the same day as the UK D-Day commemorations.

But the opposition were equally strong, calling into question Mr Gething's judgement in accepting the donations.

It is not clear exactly what the opposition will do now.

Speaking after the vote, the first minister said it was up to them whether they wanted to call a separate vote of no confidence in the government rather than in him.

That would be binding and would bring down the Welsh government if it succeeded.

But for that to happen there would need to be a scenario – again - where Labour did not have the numbers and this time the stakes would be even higher.

There has also been internal disquiet within Welsh Labour.

We don’t know yet if the desk-banging and clapping from Labour MSs today is a sign of them galvanising behind their under-pressure leader, especially after so many of them have been silent when he’s faced repeated grillings at a succession of first minister’s questions.

And we also don’t know how this will affect the very public support for Mr Gething from senior UK Labour figures, including Sir Keir Starmer, especially in the middle of a general election campaign.

Overnight Mr Gething is somewhere en route to Normandy via the Channel Tunnel for Thursday’s D-Day commemorations.

Where he ends up eventually is far less certain.
