    Don’t even get me started on speed bumps!

    In practice that is good after the event and for an individual. However, surely it would be more cost effective for the council to actually take the preventative measures to prevent vehicular damage in the first place rather than wait for everyone to rack up costs and then bill them later.

    It’s almost like an excusable get out clause to allow them to let the roads get in such a state in the first place.

    The roads are in a shambolic state – there have been no attempts to remove incredibly hazardous & vehicle damaging potholes from a number of different locations across the county that have been their for months and are worsening due to the cold weather.

    Is it too much to ask in 2019 for my car not to risk damage just taking it out within the few local miles on a daily routine?

    Surely councillors are getting just as frustrated as everyone else with their vehicles being constantly crocked.

    The council tax rates are going up enough – bloody cough up and fix our roads.

    The Super Schools were identified as a complete sham all those years ago by the public -they had overwhelming public opposition even pre-social media. Now nobody in authority has any way of fixing the mess creating.

    Wrexham’s once proud comprehensive system – a complete laughing stock.

    We are heathens in Wrexham – so the only approach most would accept is to burn the entire town centre* down and start from scratch.

    I predict some of you are going to love this sanctuary town thing.

    We are hitting on some seriously meta stuff – people complaining about people complaining. Thus it ‘snowballs’ further as I comment on the people complaining about people complaining.

    Conservatives are currently in the process of making their candidate selections in all of their challenger seats where they don’t have a sitting MP – in case May or the Government collapses due to Brexit and a snap election is called.

    The ridiculous fuss about foreign workers sending money home is a huge double standard.

    You look at Brexiteer paper the Telegraph who are renowned for their anti-immigration stance.

    They actively encourage and have their own money service for British expats to send money home from their overseas jobs.

    https://www.telegraph.co.uk/financial-services/currency-exchange/international-money-transfers/why-do-expats-return-home/

    So the rhetoric seems to be – money sent home by foreigners workers in the UK = Not Okay
    Money sent home by British expats in overseas jobs = Brilliant

    How dare people have freedoms with the money they have earned after tax.

    The issue is that the developers know full well that they have the council decision makers over a barrel – it’s either threaten to pull out and leave Henblas a ghost town or the council accept a concession where they remove requirements. It might take them months or years to find another developer and in order to push through further redevelopment in the town centre they need someone to take up this project.

    It’s unfair on the area and unfair on those who seek affordable housing, but this is the price we pay for living in such a profit driven capitalist environment. Of course this is not to say that this won’t backfire on the Mandale Group where locals feel completely alienated by the lack of available affordable properties at the development or an equivalent lack of good-will in terms of funding the placement of affordable homes elsewhere in the county. People have been notoriously critical of Eagle’s Meadow the whole time the development has been in existence and they run the risk of becoming the next public target for criticism and lack of local support.
