And why not give anti poverty to a Tory. When you consider there has been a Labour MP since year dot, up until recently a Labour council since forever, A Welsh Labour government since 1999 and a Labour AM since 1999. It’s plain Labour has done nowt about it, which of course is the true socialist doctrine. Keep the people poor and on benefits then you have control!May 30, 2017 at 8:10 pm #132191
Dick! A Conservative responsible for Anti Poverty is just ironic…surely you can see it. Theresa May is just clueless. More faces than the Stiwt clock and I am hoping that she has made the most catastrophic miscalculation by calling a snap election. A vote for the Tories and get austerity, broken promises, death taxes and an NHS that is broken beyond repair. A Hard Brexit will hit this country hard, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to work that out. So the people of Wrexham have a clear choice at this election…vote May and continue down the route of an ever increasing deficit, greater cuts, hard brexit and oh yes don’t forget that fantastic social care promise in the manifesto or….vote Labour and help reduce her majority so that the Tories can be held to account.May 31, 2017 at 9:40 am #132207
We’ve had 7 years of Tory cuts and a Tory government.
We’ve had a Labour council for 2 out of the last 12 years.
Your statement doesn’t really stand up to scrutiny, though I can understand why you said it.
The problem is in Wrexham, independents aren’t really independent, they should call themselves the co dependentsMay 31, 2017 at 6:21 pm #132234
The people of Wrexham have already givern their choice by voting to leave the EU. Need to remind you all that NHS etc is responsibility of Labour Welsh Government. But of course it’s always someone else’s fault!There is no such thing as a hard brexit, it’s just brexit, get over it.May 31, 2017 at 6:32 pm #132235
I see!, there’s only been poverty then in last seven years?.May 31, 2017 at 6:50 pm #132239
Many of the issue with Health is the complete lack of investment for many years covering all political parties in the training and recruitment of students and our future Doctors.
This is linked with strategic planners not taking into account the changing age profiles with an increasingly ageing population (great as we all hope to live longer)- it is strange how the Treasury recognised the issues when they had to plan for extending the age for being able to draw down state pensions so that we had to work longer and pay into the state for a longer period. Why then did they not invest in the training and recruitment of our new generation of Doctors.
The link to the Council and how their Lead Member for Health and Social care will deal with social care and the strained relationship that seems to exist with the Health Board due to blame shift about who blocks beds and other community services will have significant challenges — which at present with the proposed Conservative Dementia Tax will be affecting all of us and our relatives. Does our Council Lead Member have the appetite to fight the corner for Wrexham residents..June 1, 2017 at 6:08 pm #132331
Ah, so it’s not the fault of the Tories then!June 3, 2017 at 10:23 pm #132403

Less than a month after being elected as an “independent” councillor, I understand at least one of them has been seen posting Tory general election leaflets through Wrexham doors.June 3, 2017 at 11:01 pm #132404
99DylanJones raises an important point. The Exec Board has closed all council run local EMI Nursing homes, really good homes; as well as day care facilities for people with dementia, both early onset (under age 65) and over 65.
Tory/Co-Dependent councillors favour a small state. So – if you’re unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with dementia, tough. If you’re in the Maelor hospital with e.g. an infection and you have dementia, you won’t be admitted to a dementia ward because this 13-bedded ward is always full. Why?
Because now, there are ONLY privately-run dementia homes. Many of them cherry-pick their patients – who wants anyone with a history of aggression,June 3, 2017 at 11:55 pm #132405

Tory/Co-Dependent councillors (thanks, Angiebaby) favour a small state. So – if you’re unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with a life-changing condition, tough. If you need support, a charity will do it. If that charity warn you it’s a crisis, like the Red Cross did, tough.
If you need full time care, you’ll have to wait until a bed is available in any of the private homes in N Wales.
And to complete this short sighted strategy we have the prospect of MORE austerity; less £ from London to Wales to Wrexham AND a Tory council who doen’t want to spend it on the costituents.
But we voted for it.
