    Ironic that it is now 4 years since the then leader of my group ( and his 9 minions)decided he was “Independent “ despite standing on a Labour ticket in four different decades.
    That meant “ Council Watcher” the Labour Party part of any coalition, as you put it was led ( sic) by some who ultimately did not believe in not selling off family silver- a practice they put into practice ever since!

    So basically the Scrutiny Committee are quite clear as to how they want to deal with litter ( sorry cigarette butt ) enforcement but the Lead Member ( sic ) is saying “ I did not see this coming and have **** all idea about what to do!

    Councillor x – actually in terms of the present ( not a gift from God ) leading groups on the council – yesterday was the mystery – why they abandoned the scheme the Labour led Council ( May 2012-September 2014 ) was forging with Coleg Cambria and those who led us in this direction ( if you can call present Council actions a direction) were elected as Labour.
    Would welcome your explanation rather than a homily!

    Yes Liz I was a long term governor at Darland till last year but a BIG NO to any denial of having a bullying problem Cyber or otherwise. Indeed in
    my humble opinion any school, or other body who deals with young people, that denies such issues are a possibility are hiding their heads in the sand.
    As Nen and others have said parents and guardians have a role as indeed do the social media outlets such as Facebook, Snacht and probably many others an old codger like me aren’t aware of!

    Reading the article “ the head and governors are taking this seriously.” They have recognised this social media bullying as abhorrent, the police are involved and if/when the perpetrators are identified they have procedures in place to take action. As social media covers hours out of school also it behoves parents and guardians to have the major role in this as Mrs Williams states.

    If the Travellers broke down, at least they wouldn’t have to wait long for The A.A

    I wish this had a “Like” button!

    That is not my preferred picture from that particular visit. The best was Laura Kunesberg chasing Alun Cairns around the building as he muttered “ Nothing has changed” before he scuttled back in through the side door!

    Just an observation on the new frontage of the Guildhall it would appear to be open ended.
    In the statement by the Leader of the Council, he states that the frontage will reduce anti social behaviour and increase security of the building.
    My questions are 1. How does this frontage reduce anti social behaviour. 2. How does an open ended frontage increase the security of the building and staff.
    I would suggest that at a time of fiscal difficulties and cuts in services perhaps this is the wrong time to spend the reported £11,000 on a project which appears to be purely a cosmetic job on the frontage of the building.[/quote

    Now now pierce the council raised more than £11k in the budget consultation estimating £15k from charging for extra green bins. Rubbish for rubbish and it is us that are GREEN!

    sorry to spoil your fun but can report the defibrillator is back in place – a case of “ crossed wires” – no pun meant of course.
    Don’t expect me to go into details and matter of lesson learned but security is now in place.
