Before reading this topic I had no intention of going to Ty Pawb when it opens but now I think I might!January 29, 2018 at 10:19 pm #143874
Unfortunately, Liz Jackson, you have Councillors disease, not reading or choosing to understand what is written. I appreciate that my views on Ty Pawb may be mine and mine alone and that is why I have repeatedly asked Wrexham.com to speak to normal people in the street and report their views. Wrexham.com are always keen to promote Ty Pawb by talking to market stall holders and reporting their views, however, these have a vested interest in the project. It is the man in the street that will determine the success or failure of this project and how much it will cost constituents – man, woman, child, the able and the disabled. I like Wrexham.com, however my request to promote a balanced view, including public opposition to the project is not unreasonable – not one word of public opposition has been reported. In a wide spectrum of people known to me, from all ages, I have heard no one speak in favour of this vanity project given the background of the cuts the council are imposing (proposing) along with their ‘justifiable ‘ increases in council tax. Where was I during the elections? Every Mighty Oak begins with an Acorn and the seed needs to be sown….January 29, 2018 at 11:03 pm #143875
Vote The Councillors Out, might I suggest that in order to make the opposition to Ty Pawb more widely known, you actually do something newsworthy & make your cause worth talking about? Start a petition, organise a demonstration, go dressed as something comical to a council meeting & so on & so forth.
When Plas Madoc was threatened the local community took a stand & got all the news coverage they deserved. Notably more positive coverage on Wrexham.com than was given in the Leader, which was all council hot air.
You can’t jump up & down hopping mad demanding that someone goes & talks to people in the street if you aren’t willing to doing it yourself, either as a political activist or perhaps as an investigative journalist. If you applied the same passion with your arguments out there as you do on here, then you’ll easily get people on side. Whack all your findings in a blog report or on YouTube, share it, spread the word. Then if Wrexham.com don’t cover it then, or the council don’t edify you with a response, then you’d have more grounds to complain.
Long and short of the story, don’t shoot the messenger. Channel all your anger directly at the council.January 29, 2018 at 11:17 pm #143876
Also thought I’d share this wonderful article with you – council already coaxing young children into Ty Pawb with sneak previews…January 30, 2018 at 1:34 am #143885

Conspiracy theory then is that Vote the Councillors Out is a clever negative publicity viral ploy by an actual councillor. Talk the hub down that badly that even the negative Nelly’s on here find it a bit excessive & start feeling sympathetic to it. Kind of like how they need a heel character in wrestling to face off against the hero and buff up his ego.
This could actually work, all they need to do now is line up some people from the likes of Chester and Cardiff to slag off the hub & it’ll be defended like stuff of legends by local Wrexhamers.
