    So Matt, are you honestly so blinkered that you cannot see all the foreign names on the doctors’ appointment boards?

    It is a simple equation really. If overall net migration to the UK stood at 271,000 in the year ending March 2018, that is another 271k people who qualify to use our Health services.

    I would comment on the headline “Councillors still get free parking perk – silence from committee tasked with monitoring £49k budget gap” but Matt would only accuse me of being xenophobic or being on the side of Councillors and Top Management because I do not agree with everything he believes in.

    I admire and respect those skilled “foreigners” working for the NHS.

    My problem is with the unskilled workers who use of precious A&E resources BUT are only here because local people don’t want to do the jobs they came over to do and are happy as Larry on the dole.

    If you want to point the finger, it is the soft Government who make rods for their own backs by letting everyone in and giving them homes and access to the NHS.

    Good job BREXIT is stopping this and ploughing the money save back into the NHS [cue dream sequence]

    I fail to see why everyone gets worked up about Councillors and Top Managers getting to park free to do their jobs.

    Being parked so close, they always arrive on time and meetings are not delayed as a consequence.

    Charging £100 is infantile at best.

    You should either continue with free parking or charge a realist fee based on that charged at other car parks, for example, a Waterworld Car Park Season Ticket which costs £300 for six months (so £600 a year)

    So why not charge Councillors £100 a year for their occasional use and Top Managers £300 a year for daily parking?

    Any move to stop the Travellers running amok will be met with accusations of discrimination under the Race Relations Act 1976 and the Human Rights Act 1998.

    Council Tax payers must learn to put up with their shenanigans because the powers that be are unwilling to be seen as the bad guys and stomp out their anti-social behaviour.

    I am sure that if i were able to lift a rock and smash a car window then the police would have me behind bars before you could say ‘Pensioner Rights’.

    The problem will remain and other communities will experience the curse of the unruly traveller kids.

    How many people will just put their grass cuttings in with their general waste? Nobody checks bins and this is something that i have brought up with Councillors, to little effect.

    Conwy will save £390,000 a year by moving to 4 weekly collections so Wrexham should wait to see how this fares before committing to change.

    If we charged our foreign visitors to use the NHS then i am sure that the figures would improve.

    You cannot blame them for coming over and bringing their aging relatives to receive free health care but it has a strain on an already suffering service.

    My neighbours bring both sets of parents over every winter and although they are very pleasant and we share a few beers, they expect the NHS to look after them because they are frail and sickly.

    Bryn, do you put the recycling boxes and bag out or do you just throw everything in the black bin?

    Mrs X once missed a collection and even though we now have an empty next, we struggled to get through to the next fortnight. If it were not for Fat Sammy from the chippy coming around and stomping down our rubbish i do not know what we would have done.

    What we all need is a resident Fat Sammy to help with the bin problems!

    Picking up on Councillor Bithell here:
    “I went past a bin the other day and there was a mattress and a fence panel by it. A fence panel! Someone could not be bothered to take it to a skip site. We have three top of the range skip sites that take everything, you name it, they take it.”

    Then comments on the Twitter feed including:
    – But since Wrexham council got rid of the smaller tip sites I have noticed a huge increase in this sort of thing as well as fly tipping
    – Problem will only get worse if bin collections change to every three weeks
    – Bin was removed ages ago and people still put rubbish there
    – You can’t not expect people to start putting household waste bags near public bins

    I put it to you that YES people are lazy but not everyone can drive/ has a car/ van and when you remove local skip sites such as the one previously off Queensway, and reduce bin collections what are people expected to do?

    I look forward to seeing what effect Conwy’s four weekly rubbish collection has on fly tipping and if the ‘saving’ is swallowed up by clear up costs.

    The Henblas Street development sounds very positive.

    Matt, I hear your concerns about the sinking land in Llay but it hasn’t done Venice any harm has it?

    My friends at the Council Planning Office have supplied pictures of the Llay development.

    (Sorry to hijack this thread but i needed to give Matt some reassurance)
