    As long as the precious Cardiff bid is being considered, what goes on up in the sticks of North Wales doesn’t even need to be given a second thought – nevermind a highly competitive bid with cross-border collaboration being turned down.

    We are a second tier region in our country and I feel like there is very little that increased devolution or even independence would ever help improve the situation. They are happy enough to legislate punitive measures on our region, yet not interested in the real boosting and regeneration of Northern towns in the slightest.

    Throwing out pathetic shiny baubles like the funding for an Arts hub, whispers in the wind about a North Wales Metro decades away.

    Pull the other one!

    Hardly a surprise but I agree with your point. Devolution has had very little positive affect on Wrexham that I can see.

    Those cities are also where the ‘government hubs’ are to be located – taking really good civil service jobs from Wrexham and similar unfashionable towns/cities and placing them in urban centres – beginning with HMRC. seems Government only want jobs in the cities.

    Cardiff already has a long history of television production facilities and all of the support services and skills that go with them.

    If you Google ‘Television Studios Wales‘, you’ll find that corner of the principality is littered with them and the 2 hour fast rail link to London helps too.

    The long and short of it is that local politicians in South Wales made the right decisions over the years and worked hard together, to attract high value, highly skilled industries whereas the Wrexham contingent in comparison, have delivered Ty Pawb, Pie & Chips and houses of multiple occupation.

    You’ll never attract inward investment with the sales pitch of ‘Poor Us’, ‘South Wales boo.. and ‘It’s Our Turn’.

    You get what you vote for and the birds have once more come home to roost.

    It’s too late for Wrexham, its only future is as a dormitory town for Liverpool and Manchester.

    This tweet was made after Chester (now incorporating Wrexham)’s bid failed and Cardiff made the shortlist.

    I don’t often agree with you Matt, but you’ve hit the nail on the head re: Carwyn.
