Where is the evidence that Eastern Europeans are giving up ow paid work to go onto benefits — it is a fact that this is not happening — you need to look at the DWP figures for benefit claimants in Wrexham- the figures across the board have seen a significant decrease in payments- many of “our own” benefit scroungers have been caught out and are now working.
I don’t dispute that at times there are people who appear to be hanging around drinking – I don’t know why the assumption is they are all Polish – do you join in a conversation with them, I don’t dispute that there will be some Polish along with Wrexhamites, Portuguese and a wide range of other nationalities. Many who do hang around during the day actually work night shifts so don’t assume they are all scroungers.
Perhaps one of the stall holders could enlighten us on the conditions — if it is 12 months in arrears then the risk is the place is closed in 12 months and the liabilities do not become recoverable
Surely one of the fundamental issues of Private (for profit) vs Public Service (no profit – income generated invested back in the county) is that the Kingdom contract is costing the community 10’s of thousands of pounds a year going back into their profits rather than local investment. A properly managed team of Council/Community employees would still do the job in a more ‘pleasant and acceptable’ way – surpluses generated from the Fixed Penalty Notices would then go back into community projects.
Really can’t see why a profit-driven company is best for the area.
THERE A CHANCE FOR PEOPLE TO PROTEST AGAINST KINGDOM AT A RALLY BEING ORGANISED IN NORTH WALES- PERHAPS A MORE LOCAL ONE IN WREXHAM WOULD GAIN SUPPORT.

to me, Trevor
Dear Mr Jones
Your email has been passed to me for a response in Mr Coxon’s absence.
I must inform you that in so far as your complaint relates to the conduct of Councillors and potential breaches of the Code of Conduct for Members your complaint should be directed in the first instance to the Public Services Ombudsman for Wales who is responsible for considering such complaints. Full details as to how to submit a complaint can be found on the Ombudsman’s website: https://www.ombudsman-wales.org.uk/en.aspx.
I can however confirm that both Trevor Coxon and myself have been made aware of the comments made at Planning Committee and I can assure you that the Council does not condone any individual making derogatory remarks about those suffering from mental illness. The Council Leader and Lead Member for Equalities have taken the matter up and you may be aware that the Lead Member has issued a press statement. In addition I am advised that the Lead Member is liaising with Council officers with a view to sourcing further awareness raising sessions for equality issues including mental health to which all members will be invited.
I think you will see from this that the Council Leadership does take its responsibilities under the Equality Act seriously and will address the issue when there are shortcomings displayed by individuals.
Your query with respect to consideration of the public sector equality duty during the planning process has been referred to the Planning Control Manager for a response.

Wrexham.com. I wonder if you would get the same answer as the Council Leader and Chief Executive if you asked Union reps the same question about harassment?
Did you report them. If only everyone would report incidents Police and Council only react to statistics.
Should have said I don’t know Rob Walsh personally but he is someone who seems to immediately engage with his local people on Twitter as soon as an issue is raised on Wrexham.com.The other is Paul Rogers – so it looks like residents in Brymbo and Llay seem to have a Councillor that reacts to issues.
In Wrexham you cant even say value for money for the majority of Councillors-
If you look at some of the incredibly low attendance figures for all our democratically elected ‘representative’ Councillors some have only attended about 3 meetings in 4 months-
All electors should ask themselves:
1. Has my local Councillor been in touch since being elected
2. Has my Councillor asked me for my views on any issue (remember they are local REPRESENTATIVES)
3. Has your Councillor (if an Independent) sent you a newsletter telling you which Group of Independents they are now part of?
4. Has your Independent Councillor told you why they have aligned themselves with either the Pritchard or the Bitthel camp- what were they promised to join up.
5. Why did you vote for an ‘Independent’ Councillor when they are now supporting the old Pritchard/Bitthel regime- when they promised to be elected to make a differnce and see change.
6. Why have our elected Councillors become lapdogs to the Leadership.
7. Is your Councillor staying away from meetings to avoid people pointing the finger at them failing to follow through on what they were saying before the election.
ALL Councillors should look at the above and reflect on how you could answer these questions now that you have drawn your pay for 4 months- over £4000 – do YOU think you are giving YOUR Electorate value for money?????
