    Yes, KidA, you may be right. I also wonder whether he’s simply a troll. His arguments for free parking and his suggestion that a kids play day is “self-centred” are just so ridiculous it is difficult to believe anyone could seriously hold those views.

    OMG, pastrylover, how on earth are the people in those shops going to work with the noise from the machinery? How selfish of the council.

    Councillor X, the term “top management” is yours. I don’t hate them; I just think they should be treated as fairly as everyone else. You have no such concern for all council employees – are you suggesting that other council employees do not do “an excellent job”? You would rather the council serve first and foremost one particular subset of employees than the constituents on whose behalf the council should act. I think parking should be free for all – or a personal expense for all. In a time of austerity and cuts it is disgraceful for particular council employees to look after themselves first by exempting themselves from the type of expenses that everyone else is expected to bear.

    My best guess is that either you, your other half or someone close to you works for the council in what you consider to be a “top management” role. Your desperate attempts on other threads to justify why councillors and “top management” should be given free parking smacks of self interest – yet here you accuse others of being self-centred for speaking in support of an event that was for the benefit and enjoyment of children.

    What makes you think parents and other carers left the kids there? I expect that many, if not most, will have stayed to watch the enjoyment the children were having at the event. As for how the council staff worked – that’s pathetic. I was able to avoid town yesterday but I could still have coped just fine had I needed to visit, and I could certainly work just fine in an office on the one day a year where there was extra noise due to a children’s event. Perhaps “top management” are more precious than the rest of us.

    Why don’t YOU tell us how much it cost, oh wise one? I expect it would still be a better use of council finances and resources than providing free parking for those who – in your opinion – are “top management”.

    Can’t get the quote button to work today, but Marvinuk you took the words right out of my mouth.

    I don’t have kids and on a personal note was very pleased not to be going into town yesterday where I would have actually had to experience all the extra kids with the high pitched noises they tend to make – but how can anyone begrudge them one day a year of fun, provided by the council?

    And then along came the answer – someone who thinks it’s important that councillors and “top management” at the council deserve generous year-round free perks, specifically as regards parking.

    Childish and delusional; BenjaminM & Matt, you’re so persuasive.

    On the description of how prisoners are treated I have no issue.

    AMA did not only state an opinion, nor was s/he quoting stats, s/he tried to add weight to it by stating where s/he had worked to indicate where this knowledge was gained.

    We all know that there ARE timewasters, but to suggest they can be identified by a layperson simply watching them in A&E is absurb. Even a drunk or drug-addled person could be there for another injury that is not apparent to those nearby. Even if they’re injured due to an accident brought about by their intoxication does not make them timewasters; they are still entitled to be treated.

    How would a layperson identify an attention seeker who has mental health issues? Again, an injury or other illness may not be apparent to an onlooker. Just because they appear to be seeking attention or behaving unusually, does not mean that that’s why they are attending A&E. Furthermore, not all mental health sufferers are attention seekers. If someone is experiencing a mental health crisis, particularly at an unsociable hour, where would you have them go to seek help, if not A&E?

    AMA stated s/he doesn’t work there any more. But other non-clinical staff still do. People’s medical records are confidential. My concern here is that confidentiality may be being breached by “careless talk”. You may be happy for that to be the case, but I’m not. On the other hand, if it’s not the case then no one has anything to worry about do they.

    It’s also possible that AMA never worked there and simply claims to have. Unless you know more about AMA than I do, we only have his/her word for it.

    All prisoners brought into A&E from HMP Berwyn are handcuffed, and often chained, and accompanied by at least 2 officers. 1 officer stays with them at all times during treatment.

    In 9 cases out of 10, patients brought in by the Police are also accompanied by 2 officers, who stay until they’re discharged. In the odd 1 in 10 case, the patients are victims, aren’t under arrest and are not deemed a threat.

    The biggest threat to A&E are timewasters who could easily treat themselves, and attention seekers who often have mental health issues.

    I worked as a Security Officer in A&E at the hospital until 3 weeks ago.

    I find it disturbing that someone who claims to have been a security officer at the Maelor’s A&E appears to think that this make him/her capable of spotting so-called “timewasters who could easily treat themselves” and “attention seekers” with “mental health issues”. Did you have sight of their medical notes? Did the medical staff discuss with you personal information relating to their patients?

    In fact, I find this sufficiently disturbing that I am going to report it. I would not feel comfortable attending A&E if this sort of personal medical information is handled so irresponsibly.

    Not Matt, he always feared she was immortal.

    Imagine if I did.

    Imagine if she was.

    Hope it’s John Lewis.

    This must be the best kept worst kept secret

    I feel bad now that I may have given you false hope as regards John Lewis. Maybe it’ll be a branch of Tiffany’s. Or even something as low-class as a Zizzi’s restaurant.

    With any luck, it’ll be discount shop. I do hope so – those kind of shops are sorely lacking in Wrexham.

    If we tell you, we’ll have to kill you.

    So be it. The suspense alone will kill me. Could it be a new Apple store, Waitrose, John Lewis, something of that ilk as befits our wonderful town.

    in reply to: Former Bhs – worst kept secret #150291


    No idea. Been waiting for someone – anyone – to respond & reveal the worst kept secret.
    Am now wondering whether you, newwales, already know the answer but are taunting those of us who don’t! Building up the suspense …
    It’s quite exciting. Who might it be?!
