    Well said Ioan, well said.


    Quite right, Interested.

    I feel confident that there will be another general election in the not too distant future as the alliance formed with the DUP is destined to fail.

    What I sincerely hope is that we will not see the current Tory and Plaid candidates for Wrexham standing again as they have both been rejected 3 times already.How many times do they need to be told that the electorate of Wrexham don’t want them?

    Personally, I found the local Tory campaign sickening and the Plaid campaign, well, pointless.

    Liberal Democrats. None.
    Plaid Cymru. One.
    Labour. Three.
    Conservative. Six. (3 produced locally and 3 stamped, personally addressed from

    Judging by the overkill from the Tories, I wonder whether the validity of their election expenses will once again be under scrutiny post election?

    Just read the election flyer from Andrew (Andy) Atkinson, my first reaction was an overwhelming desire to vomit.

    It opens with the caption ‘Andrew Atkinson Standing With Teresa May’ then goes on to dispenses with the name Andrew, who suddenly becomes Andy as if magically transformed into the persona of the boy next door, or everyone’s friend. Very sad attempt to get people on board!

    Further on, it lists Theresa May’s plans for a stronger Britain. Including, 1.Reform the Welsh education system to improve standards in our schools, and 2. Invest in the Welsh NHS to ensure that every family has the care they need.
    Has it escaped their attention that both of those are devolved matters, the responsibility of the Welsh Assembly?
    Glaring omissions include, plans to abolish the triple lock and the proposed ‘dementia tax’

    If this is Conservative attention to detail both nationally and locally, I want no part of it.

    Come on Dick, which is to be? Either she doesn’t meet people on the street (1st post)or she does (2nd post). You can’t have it both ways!!
    Typical of Tories, change their stance whenever wind direction changes or they say whatever is expeditious in the moment. Just take as a classic example, the number of u-turns performed since their manifesto launch last week, astounding.!
    I sincerely hope that the electorate of Wrexham and Wrexham South really take note of what is being said from above and the deafening silence from the local Tory candidates.
    You are quite right when you state that there are none so blind as those who do not wish to see. A bit of friendly advice – open your eyes.

    And which other party leaders would that be then Dick?
    From all the coverage I have seen, everyone of them has interfaced with the general public, except May of course!!
    How anyone can attempt to hold her in esteem and pretend she is virtuous and moral is beyond me.

    A relatively small number of people in a closeted environment can hardly be described as engaging with the general public. She MAY have had more credibility if she had spoken to the people assembled outside the venue rather than leaving via the back door like a thief in the night.
    A shady individual who quite frankly displays all the attributes that the Tories stand for – greed and class distinction.
    The name Tory did not appear just from nowhere. I suggest you check its’ etymology.

    “So her visit to the Gresford playgroup doesn’t count then?”

    In an election campaign, no, it most certainly doesn’t! Children are not likely to ask questions that puts her on the spot – that is why she has shunned contact with the general public who are finally realising that she is a liar and not to be trusted with anything she says.
    Evil policies from an anti working class Party.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for any contentious questions to be raised at Teresa May’s visit. Just expect plenty of whooping and cheering from the SELECTED attendees. Not the first time on this election trail the the general public have been excluded from the meet and greets.

    ANYONE who has yet to see what a divisive party the Tories are who work only for the rich and big business, are absolutely deluding themselves. This permeates from top to bottom, Westminster to local level.

    I urge anyone in the Wrexham and Wrexham South constituencies to vote for anyone except the Tory candidate otherwise the problems we have in Wrexham at this time will be magnified tenfold when the Tory manifesto really kicks in.

    in reply to: Same old same old #131554


    Absolutely a 100% accurate observation Dylan. Democracy is indeed dead in Wrexham when it seems that those who stood in the election ‘to make a difference’ have so soon lost their ‘independence’and flocked together as you rightly state.

    The chance of their being a lone wolf is remote in my estimation and I foresee that now that their position is established on the gravy train (for 5 years at least), they will once again sink back into the woodwork. Autocratic governance will once again be the order of the day at WCBC.
