    A Cardiff centric view from the top inside BBC Wales is not a shock really – tweet was this from the Cardiff bloke who is Director of BBC Wales

    Speaking of HQ’s – Beeb down there are getting this £120,000,000 new HQ which if anyone has had the thrill of the hours on a train to emerge in Cardiff station – is right opposite. More on:

    Will Channel 4 be more imaginative? :)

    It does not appear to be all council cash… but room for spending on specific projects perhaps.

    On the Anglesey front, was that like Gwynedd where it was under a trial period?

    Locally we had the trial and then it was decided to proceed with a permanent appointment – that turned out to be Kingdom.

    Going back to http://www.wrexham.com/news/which-councillor-claimed-1-35-mileage-to-attend-remembrance-day-service-99364.html etc it appears WCBC do allow travel expenses from home to guildhall for meetings.

    There are some quite amusingly bad facebook pages/groups out there in terms of spin/censorship etc but as you say that is in the gifts of the admins – but for the record nothing has been spun / censored on here.

    As for other local news, I would note despite updating for various things Wrexham related today it seems the Leader / Post have not covered today on the day, or Thursday on the day – ITV Wales nowhere, but thankfully the BBC have this indepth report http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-north-east-wales-43611038

    Just an update, the Leader did do a piece today on it however the lack of sending a reporter the 196 meters was evident in using 5 day old quotes from the other opening no reporters went to either.

    “Wrexham Council deputy leader Cllr Hugh Jones, who unveiled the official plaque … ”

    He cut the ribbon on Monday, and unveiled the plaque on Thursday. The report on Thursday said the Mayor did that, although he was there then, he was absent on Monday but that is for another thread on civic roles :)

    The opening looks like it got a mention on the Post’s Live Blog, but did not merit an article.

    I would look some more, but “The household items found to be riddled with poo bacteria will shock you” has sucked me in to click on the Post’s website…

    I believe it is dog friendly, as there were a few very friendly dogs there yesterday :)

    https://www.typawb.wales/ has changed back to a holding page, but https://www.typawb.cymru/ is still on the old site currently.

    Fireworks — been told they are £10k what a waste- anything less than New Year London/Sydney style fireworks are no longer worth watching- environmentally unfriendly – why not have a light show- something different and no pollution.

    I would be surprised if they were even close to a 10th of that figure assuming it is the same regular supplier who does the lights switch on etc, and does those events very well too IMHO!

    As reported on here previously regarding Kingdom , the Lead Member has been clear: ‘We are not following DEFRA guidance, we are following legislation’.
