    What is a “people’s vote” when it isn’t just another referendum? It’s a trick the voters who didn’t get their own way in the first referendum are using in an attempt to disguise the true meaning which is, of course, “we want a re-run of the 2016 referendum because we didn’t like the result of that one and want to try to overturn it”. It’s akin to calling “speed cameras” “safety cameras” in an attempt to make them seem more acceptable when, at the end of the day “speed cameras” describe them well enough. I would go along with another referendum if it did not include the remain option instead, asking whether we leave with the current deal or no deal as whether we actually leave or not was decided in 2016. To the remain voters saying we were hoodwinked into a leave vote in 2016 by lies i would say, we are lied to at every general election in one way or another as whichever party gets in does not ever carry out what it says it will in it’s manifesto so, where are the demands for re-runs then? No, it’s all just very sad that we are slowly being pushed towards an attempt to overturn a democratic vote to leave the EU which has happened to just about every vote any EU member country has taken that the EU hasn’t liked where it has been either re-run and overturned or just ignored/worked round. Not a good record for what is touted as a democratic organisation.

    How can anyone vote for a party led by that clown Nigel Farage? Oh wait, we’re talking about the same people who voted to leave the EU.[/quote

    I believe its a free country, you cast your vote for who ever you want.

    Indeed it is.

    I have the notion that because the pro remain voters have been so damned insulting and rude to the pro leave voters that they will have actually hardened opinions in that, a leaver that may have changed their mind will have felt so insulted and aggrieved at the leavers disgraceful behaviour towards them they will have dug in and thought, you know what, you lot can go swing i’m not changing. It’s human nature you see.

    Exactly! We’re supposed go be voting for our representative in Europe. Someone to stand up for us, fight for us, secure vital EU funding that Wales massively relies on in the absence of funding from Westminster (which will never be replaced should we leave).
    And yet people are actively voting against that for party of riffs who couldn’t care less about us. The mind boggles

    How do you think we will get funding from an organisation we are no longer paying into or members of?

    I am doubtful that not voting would send a message as many people don’t vote anyway.
    Would it be better to show your presence at the ballot box by spoiling your paper by writing none of the above?

    If you do not want to vote for any party, the above is the best option.

    I will vote for the party i think will send the clearest message to our pathetic MP’s as to what we, the voting public think of them. It’s an absolute slap in the face of the British public that we are being reduced to this ie. voting to send representitives to an assembly we should no longer be a party to.

    And, there are, across the county, hundreds of really good premises that spend, by far, most of the time empty but heated and comfortable where the homeless could be welcomed to bring their cardboard “beds” and bed down for the night but aren’t. What are these premises? churches and chapels of all flavours of course.

    I have a few small tweaks to make to that statement to reflect the very reality of nature:

    The benefit scroungers of Wrexham, (like most scroungers) live mainly on handouts and charity so while they are concentrating on themselves other people are working to feed them meaning they are, basically, beggars. They are of little use in this world other than to themselves and perhaps, at times, to others as entertainment (see Channel 5 poverty porn, Jeremy Kyle). Only my opinion of course.

    My point exactly, why invite more ;)

    In actuality though, most people on benefits are not scroungers they are people in real need of support, in contrast, i would say that most (tibetan) monks are, pretty much, scroungers and in fact they make a virtue of it as the givers get to make “good Karma” for themselves by the act of giving. So, you could say those not on benefits are garnering “good Karma” by paying tax, some of which goes to those people on benefits. Win win eh? :)

    I know people have opinions about new ideas , but that does not mean they have the right to be disrespectful to other cultures, they obviously don’t know anything about !!! PS What has beggars on the streets got to do with Chinese ??? Show a bit more respect people !

    The Shaolin Monks, (like most Monks) live mainly on handouts and charity so while they are concentrating on themselves other people are working to feed them meaning they are, basically, beggars. They are of little use in this world other than to themselves and perhaps, at times, to others as entertainment. Only my opinion of course.

    In the recent inquest, the Coroner “Mr Gittins said he was uneasy that an annual “push/pull” test – which sees force exerted on the posts by inspectors – could lead to inconsistencies in information.

    The coroner also expressed concern that signage alone did not provide adequate warning of risk. A gap in the railings of 195 millimetres was larger than current British standards of 110m.

    This was a particular issue if people deliberately intended to cross to the outer edge of the aqueduct like Mr McDowell, the coroner said.”

    Perhaps it is time to close the walkway across the aqueduct to individual walkers and only allow people to cross as part of escorted groups after an appropriate risk assessment of each person? Perhaps that is the best way we could mark the 10th anniversary of this engineering masterpiece, designed by brilliant minds and an incredibly brave and surefooted workforce.

    Your tongue was firmly in your cheek when you typed that, wasn’t it? Yes, of course it was :)

    I saw someone messing with it yesterday so it’s probably been put right now.
