So the Prime minister has called for a snap General Election. It will be interesting to see who the candidates will be for Wrexham and what the outcome will be. The Conservatives made significant gains in Wrexham in 2015, will this trend continue?April 18, 2017 at 11:52 am #130076
Hats off to the Tories, whether you like them, loathe them or tolerate them. There is currently no opposition for them, so why not stake their claim to another term now?

Conservative Andrew Atkinson
Plaid’s Carrie Harper and Marc Jones
Lib Dem’s Rob Walsh
All previous candidates, all wannabe career politicians. So the question is will they stand again? If so what impact does that have on the local elections and does it mean they would need to step down to become a candidate for the National elections? Anybody know the answer?
Personally believe that this has been called 12 months too early for the Conservatives. I think or hope Labour retain Wrexham and Clwyd South. As a past Conservative voter I would now rather walk on glass than vote for them. The under funding and covert privatisation of the NHS, austerity cuts whilst maintaining fat cat bonuses etc. Etc. But we will see what the people of Wrexham want.April 18, 2017 at 12:12 pm #130078
Motive behind the Snap Genereal Election? Obvious, Conservatives know that the Brexit deal will not be good and they envisage real problems in parliament and from growing discontent from the masses. Best way to offset that….call an election now before it hits, secure a mandate from the people early so that this can be used as a stick to beat parliament. Just my opinion and I’m no expert.April 18, 2017 at 12:17 pm #130079
The thought of Jeremy Corbyn in charge of the country should be enough to stop anyone from voting Labour!April 18, 2017 at 12:30 pm #130083
Lmao….bring on more austerity, and a very poor Brexit deal then. It won’t affect us…..will it? I’m not a Corbyn supporter but I feel that another 5 years of this Conservative regime is unthinkable. But do understand your point. We will see what Mr Corbyn responds with and then it’s up to us the public to vote.April 18, 2017 at 12:32 pm #130084
Just thought, another couple of wannabe career politicians
Lib Dem’s Aled Roberts
And didn’t Baines from Llangollen stand previously? All standing as County Councillor candidates at the moment.April 18, 2017 at 1:06 pm #130092
I suspect this “reluctant” decision is more about strengthening the tory grip on power.
She has said this is to strengthen her hand in negotiations and to bring stability within the palace of Westminster. Why? she got her article 50 trigger through. If she and the government negotiate a decent deal, what’s her problem?
If Mrs May can change her mind on this, what else can she change her mind on? I am mindful of all that “equality” rhetoric she spouted on entering No. 10.April 18, 2017 at 1:10 pm #130093
Sixteen years of Lucas, sixteen years of decline. Labour have clearly been failing this town for a long time, both in Parliament and at a local government level. Given the desperate situation Wrexham is now in, perhaps it’s time for something new? As far as I’m concerned, we can’t continue to head down this path, we need change.

Also, Labour are currently run by a nutter, which makes my decision to abandon them even easier.
