    So Wrexham Labour name Mary Wimpery as the runner up in the gen elect. She claims to know Wrexham and its issues and would seek to build on the work Ian has done on transport – what complain about it whilst supporting policies then signal its demise? She claims to have been a candidate before and held her own on a platform – rude at the station. She has helped ensure key sporting events remained free to air for everyone to enjoy – well I’ve just renewed me sky box, so I wouldn’t give a monkeys. I don’t think I need to worry about her tbh. Away my mighty stead🐎to hustings! #freerollsforall

    Congratulations to Mary Wimbury on being chosen to represent the Labour Party in Wrexham.

    Is Mary Wimbury the best candidate or the best female candidate ?
    Were other candidates excluded if not female ?
    If so how does this ensure the best candidate is chosen irrespective of their sex ?

    Positively discriminating in favour of a particular group is something we should be working against if we are to achieve genuine equality of all. Of course, IF all the best candidates were women that’s perfectly acceptable. What does an ‘all women shortlist’ mean in this particular instance ?

    Does Mary Wimbury come from Wrexham ?
    How long has Mary Wimbury lived in Wrexham ?
    Does Mary Wimbury come from Bournemouth ?

    Does Mary Wimbury support UK remaining in the EU or leaving the EU ?

    Is Mary Wimbury a ‘Corbyn Sceptic’ ?

    Why does one of Mary Wimbury’s profiles on social media state she is ‘only just’ in the Labour Party ?

    Well done and commiserations to @helen4wrexhammp, #SharonMorris and #DanaDavies who were fierce + excellent candidates.

    To see 4 great Women candidates was fabulous to see. Wrexham Labour is on course to have Female MP,Female AM and a Female Leader of the council group.

    Wimbury wasn’t the best candidate on that list. Helen Grout who came runner up would have been a significantly better candidate.

    Of course people should get behind Wimbury and vote for Labour in Wrexham. But alarm bells ring when she is being congratulated by the absolutely despised right wing Blairite and Israel Apartheid Cheerleader Luke Akehurst.

    I will reserve judgment on her based on how she does for Wrexham if she gets in and her overall conduct within Labour.

    100% behind what Katia says. Discrimination due to gender is unacceptable. Until I see answers to Katia’s questions I will keep my options open.

    So it looks like the local Laour Party may not have acted in a democratic way – how on earth are the local electorate going to accept any candidate if there is distrust from within their own membership. Unless someone knows something different I assume the actual vote at the hustings was ‘rigged’ then Mary must have come over as the best so should now be supported.
    All the wingers need to get in their box and start getting behind THEIR candidite and get on the road to convince others that Labour actually has something to offer for getting Brexit over the line.

    Well herein lies the problem Derek – both the grassroots and the PLP in Labour are completely split between leave vs remaining still. So you’ll get one person telling you Labour are going to go and get a better Brexit deal – but ultimately a people’s vote is what will follow and the remain element will focus on that and supporting remain in a second referendum which will lead to blocking Brexit.

    Wimbury herself is a Europhile – probably more so than Lucas was. Check this blog.

    I read every word of “Where Do I stand on Brexit” and from that fear for Labour in Wrexham, unthinkable ??

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