    You could say that with the way Democratic primaries went down, however,its not surprising that Trump lost, there are many that would have previously voted third party or for Trump as a protest vote (due to the Democratic party not serving their interests) and they are now sick of him whether it be covid, no further economic stimulus for the people and realising that the swamp is just further highlighted not drained.

    Both parties are toxic and have a corporatist agenda and much of what Trump said during 2016 election was untrue, he packed his team full of people that were from big busness like Goldman Sach’s that were part of the so called swamp. So when people talk of him favourably they don’t look into what he actually stands for. Though at least he added some humour while he screwed over the citizens which is better than nothing i suppose. Though to dismiss the differences between the two would be criminal too its an improvement with Biden but mostly its the decorum that they want restored that’s why you see Republicans supporting Biden.

    Prohibition of alcohol wouldn’t have been a good idea either. People will already be angry enough, the staff of these retailers have to put up with enough abuse as it is. On top of that customers are analysing them even more, any tickle in their throat or sneeze, they think they should be sacked for coming into work.

    Literally all they have done is create more of a panic than last time in Wales as people don’t know what they are classing as essential or non-essential causing less social distancing as they panic buy even if they really didn’t need the product.

    Surely they are smarter than this or did they want us all to get crammed together.

    The supermarkets were provided a tax break through all this, while like online retailers have also been benefiting from all this so there is no reason for us to feel sorry for the supermarkets. Showing the shift to big retailers and online retailers during all this is rather worrying for the future.

    I have to agree with Matt I couldn’t have said it better myself, though I have never aligned close to any party.

    Does anybody know if Nando’s is going to open? This would mean we will be left with Burger King, while Subway is part of the development you don’t really think of it being as part of Eagles Meadow.

    Funny how this became a labour vs conservative party issue when the focus is more on the individual. Rather than be seen to address local and national issues in the midst of a pandemic, she wants to deflect by talking about immigrants, which reminds me of the USA with Tik Tok.

    I am actually not sure what more they could possibly do to be honest from the reports I am getting from people they are one of the strictest, the issue is the type of custom they would attract and the amount of custom they attract.

    I really don’t get the mentality of getting behind someone without being critical of their work, with that kind of attitude you will end of supporting a dictatorship.

    There is some ridiculous comments made on here about the political motivation of people to criticise based on the party (please remember it is not a religion) a lot of you end up criticising Labour which is rather hypocritical because with your logic you should be critical of both. I for one wanted to give her the chance, I wanted to see some engagement, I wanted her to stand up for Wrexham, but all we are getting is Michael O’Leary from the 2000’s. He seeked media attention, whilst completely ignoring its customers. OK I am repeating myself, but I seriously need to ask if it is Michael O’Leary in disguise, I guess we’ll find out if she goes anywhere near a billboard with a Ryanair advert.

    It gets tiresome the use of left and right this can be seen on many American newspaper forums. I want an adult conversation here not use of the words left, right and snowflake every other sentence or try doing something funny to entertain us.

    People’s criticisms are warranted she did send out her support for local businesses, nobody is denying that, people are angry because instead of engaging with her constituents she is promoting a major corporation (while it’s a local franchise, they have to send substantial fees to the headquarters) and promoting obesity. She didn’t even do it tastefully and focus on the social distance aspect alone she used it as a photo opportunity as if she is Michael O’Leary any press is good press attitude.

    😂😂 Are you trying to be funny zinger? Does it really matter? Personally I think it would be a nice touch if they changed the name of the pub, its actually no harm to anyone, nobody calls it by its name. I am hoping for a bit of investment to be made for the outside of the pub which is looking rather shabby.

    Don’t be silly it’s just about the name of a substandard chain pub and CWrexham has a good point you chosen to ignore Zinger. Support an independent bar/pub in the area and support locals, rather than dreaming about Elihu Yale while supporting Tim Martin.

    Zinger why are you insisting on celebrating Elihu Yale? I think it was a lousy name to pick to start with. Do you think that badly of Wrexham that it was the best name they could have come up with?

    So you have found some black politicians to be part of the ruling class today, this does not mean society is perfect now does it. Look at the United States for instance where they elected a black President and look at the way they act, it doesn’t mean a thing.

    So you have found out that people from different backgrounds can be racist too and it appears you are making judgements based on that.

    This seems to get you triggered more than a politician that is ignoring our town, the many wars we participate in, homelessness and more.

    I would rather you highlight the media companies and political focus on TV shows and statues is distracting us from the real injustices as that is something I am concerned about.

    The tinkering around the edges that the politicians like to do only seems to serves themselves, it’s plain old symbolism and then they wash their hands of it. Then we all discuss things that don’t help the cause, but only serve to do diminish it like the removal of Little Britain or a statue. Nobody really cares about them deep down (they are pretty much setting the boundaries of an acceptable debate) , they want us to discuss this as it means they don’t have to do anything about it.

    There is many discussions on here that seems to like to divert attention from their cause, but the movement is not discussing slavery (even though the mindset can be born out of it) they are discussing police brutality and economic inequality which is linked to Government spending, they just want everybody to listen and do their research and you will find that it’s disproportionate, but it affects us all.

    I am hoping that we all begin a movement against slavery together because it seems like that is popular on here……
