    I would hazard a guess that if all the ex-pats return to Britain from Spain and other countries, (many of them pensioners), the NHS would be swamped. Be careful what you wish for by returning all EU members to their country of origin.

    Those pensioners who have been taken their (well-earned) pensions from the UK and spending every single penny of it overseas? TUT TUT shouldn’t be allowed.

    Annoys me how foreign nationals entering UK are “immigrants”/ “migrants” but UK nationals living abroad are “ex-pats”.

    Also annoys me how migrants are made the scapegoats for various issues (e.g. NHS waiting times, low salaries). E.g. migrants from EU are (even now) entitled to travel to the UK, reside here, work here, etc. They are doing nothing wrong yet there seems to be so much resentment towards them and often hostility. And it seems to me to be mainly directed at eastern Europeans.

    People who come here to work and do work are not immigrants/migrants but the fact is there are a lot that come here for the great benefits we have in this country of which you don’t blame them for.

    But ex pats go to live abroad go there being able to support themselves, whether you think they should spend their money in this country, I guess that’s a matter of choice.

    The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

    The number of EU citizens living in the area has climbed by around 4,000 since the referendum held in June 2016, according to the latest estimates from the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    Data shows that the number of EU migrants living in the area rose from 5,000 in 2016 to 9,000 in June.

    European citizens accounted for 6.6 per cent of Wrexham’s total population, compared with an average of 5.7 per cent for the United Kingdom.

    How do we handle the extra demand?

    Derek “WreXIt – few points about your post – there are probably only about 3- 4% of the people in A & E who are ‘foreign nationals compared with between 11-12% of the overall population.”

    If almost 7% are EU Migrants without factoring in the Non-EU migrants then we have a large capacity problem.

    Welcome in those qualified and boot out the scroungers. I am with Australia on this. Don’t let in the dross who come over purely for benefit. MAKE the doleys take the poorly paid jobs that they are too lazy to apply for because they are better off on benefits.

    Solved! – you can close the thread now Rob.

    There is no unemployment in Wrexham, there are just unemployable.

    Your average Wrexham doley, is quite literally incapable of pushing a brush.

    There have been a number of new schools opening in the borough in recent years with at least 3 more primary schools in the pipeline in order reduce class sizes giving pupils more individual time with a teacher. That’s a good thing.

    The prison is not responsible for the airing times in A&E extending to unacceptable levels. Your sources are exaggerating if not bending the truth altogether.
    The hospital is grossly understaffed in critical Department’s and a recruitment drive does not seem to be doing much good. Although just reading the posts on here would be enough to put me off having to help any of you in an emergency. Paid or not !!!
    Now don’t get me wrong I am not overly impressed with those nurses that can’t hack the job they’ve trained for and go on stress leave with full pay. They trained in the same environment and survived, now they’re getting 25k annual salary and suddenly realise how messed up things are and undervalued they feel. Wake up nurses it’s what you signed up for !!!!!

    So we have a bunch of potential patients botching in the forums and social media and a load of undervalued and certainly over stretched nurses waiting for your arrival. And you keep arriving day after day after day. Different faces but the same disrespect for the people that aren’t off sick and can hack the stress and want to help the sick except maybe today you’ll be the final straw for one of them. And when your neighbour goes in tomorrow and there’s one less nurse available they might end up waiting for what’s left of their lives.

    Being rude and disrespectful and slinging mud around anonymously breeds negativity and contempt and if the people of Wrexham want improvements and developments and ways to move forward it’s time to suck it up and be supportive and pro active. Be understanding of what you can’t see and you could save someone’s mental health or even life down the line.

    I predict some of you are going to love this sanctuary town thing.
