    sorry to spoil your fun but can report the defibrillator is back in place – a case of “ crossed wires” – no pun meant of course.
    Don’t expect me to go into details and matter of lesson learned but security is now in place.

    Has Pickles the dog found it under a bush?

    Speed limit in place for 18 months.

    *slow clap for the Welsh Government*

    Sadly I doubt it. I also doubt it will be temporary too. Speed limits rarely go up. I have a feeling we will be told that “The reduction in nitrogen dioxide was such a Great Success that we have decided to make the reduction permanent”

    Hopefully it will be made permanent and they’ll look at reducing the limits on other roads too, like the Llanypwll Link road for instance.

    Ohhh no thank you. An enforced minimum speed would be good, to stop people who consistently drive 20mph under the speed limit thinking they are heroes, when in reality these zombie drivers would fail a driving test for doing so. I remember my driving instructor teaching me that driving too slowly is dangerous as you cause other road users to become frustrated which, as per human nature, can cause them to make rash decisions.

    Either way, people have varying ideas and neither will convince the other they are wrong. People should drive to the conditions of the road they are on. Yes sometimes this means slower, but only if the situation warrants it, not just holding up traffic because they think they know better.

    Agreed, all the Mr McGoo types who join the A483 at 40mph and wait for the very end of the slip road to Force merge – as in they are coming into that lane even if a lorry is tearing it at them – forcing both people in the adjoining lane and the people joining behind them at the usual merge speed all having to take evasive action by braking sharply or moving over and causing the fast lane to break sharply as well. Then they will crawl down the 483 at 45mph and exit at the next junction which means they could have just stayed on the normal town roads and done everyone a favour.

    I declare this thread a great success.

    Is Andrew Atkinson a self-publicist or in fact Councillor that is doing more than others!! For many people, their Councilor is faceless and only to be seen every five years leading to an election whilst hibernating for the other four.

    This is my point though, he only frantically starts doing things when there is some kind of election coming – with all the current turmoil in Government, he’s getting himself battle ready. 3 vanity projects this week alone. Perhaps some of the other councillors actually get stuff done on their wards without it needing to be very visual and directly related to a plug for his own commercial business.

    Of course the Tories have completely sidestepped the major issue that lifesaving equipment has been taken and someone could die and have used it as a political spat against decent Plaid Clr Marc Jones.

    You have to ask what sort of Executive lead councillor is more interested and excited in the restoration and shininess of a restored old phone box, rather than the more vital news that this is where the crucial life saving defibrillator is housed.

    Are you being serious Matt? He literally says it houses a defib. You genuinely are clutching at straws.

    Doesn’t anymore…

    Atkinson’s name is popping up all over the internet like a bad rash again. Must mean another General Election is coming. Seems to stick his head massively above the parapet to remind people who he is Couple of days ago I was able to rest & now there’s publicity & complaints about him left right and centre.

    I ended up posting about the Llay issue because more than 1 person had complained to me about him.

    Dick, come on do your compulsory post I know you are lurking somewhere.
