    Surely this government pilot in Buckley to do Pfizer vaccines at local surgeries is a positive step and will mean more jabs in arms at a quicker pace.

    …this is all about increasing the amount of vaccine in the community and getting our lives back to normal.

    It’s coming people.

    Truth, it very much sounds like an emotional response to the whole situation, which is fair enough given the amount we’ve all been through over the past year. Hopefully your mum will hear something shortly and get vaccinated and you’ll be able to worry less about it.

    Politics is broken in general across the UK, but I wouldn’t have Andrew RT Davies and his Welsh Tories in charge of this country.

    We’re really early in the vaccination game and we’re lucky to be in a country where there is a queue where all of us are pretty much guaranteed a vaccination this year. There will be billions on the planet who won’t get a vaccine any time soon and a number of those who are older or vulnerable will succumb to the virus.

    So being impatient and moaning about waiting in a queue just sums up how typically British and entitled everyone is. They will get vaccinated, there’s nothing open anyway for them to go to and it’s bloody freezing anyway. As long as they continue doing what they are doing now they’ll fingers crossed have a fair few more enjoyable years to come once we get out of this horrible event.

    Thing is it wasn’t acceptable in Blair’s day and many of us disagreed with it at the time and it’s not acceptable now.

    Don’t think there’s many Blairites on this Forum.

    Yes we all know Tony Blair was a red tory war criminal, bit of whataboutery there.

    While we’re talking about ancient history, I hear that Genghis Khan didn’t do everything by the book either.

    Yes, well that therein lies a major problem Tim. If people continue to vote Tory, this man could end up First Minister.

    Of course, there were questions over his employing his wife in a 37.5 hour a week role as a PA for 13 years, allowing her to earn £35,000 per year. When queried a number of Tories within the party didn’t even realise she was a paid up member of his staff as they had no interaction or dealings with her. On top of her full time job she was also touting a business as a hypnotherapist. Cronyism at its finest.

    If it’s the choice of this clown and the drunkards at the bar then there is little hope for any meaningful direction or competence if the public of Wales make a disastrous decision at election.

    Surely the correct answer, as with anything else medical is to use as directed by the manufacturer and how they tested it, which is 21 days. As far as I’m concerned there is no wiggle room from that.

    I stand corrected, she’s more like Colonel Kilgore in Apocalypse Now.

    It’s a bit of a cheek in this current difficult economic climate to turn round and say accept 6.95% which is a high increase – well above inflation – then pluck some even bigger numbers out of the air to try and justify it.

    It’s like punching someone in the face and telling them to be happy with the bloodied nose they got because they could have been given 2 black eyes as well.

    I think there should have been a freeze on council tax rate for the next financial year as those attempting to work for a living who are expected to pay to run the county are having a hard time of it with all these lockdowns and closures.

    Lots of people are still on furlough and means they are only getting 80% of their take home pay and recently some businesses have been cutting back contracted hours because they have to chip into the furlough pay which means staff are paid furlough rate on less hours. No prospect of any overtime pay either, which I know a lot of people rely upon.

    Self employed businesses not able to function properly, also on 80%. These people are all expected to continue paying their council tax and now the council want to take a bigger slice of their money from a much smaller pie.

    Lots of households are struggling to pay the current year’s council tax off with huge arrears built up – let alone worry about additional larger tax bills coming in April. Councillor Pritchard has completely misread this situation and whilst there is no sign of let up in restrictions across Wales. People are going to continue to not be able to work and earn to line the council coffers.

    You can’t help but feel a bit envious of those who are exempt from paying council tax who have been completely unaffected by this pandemic as they sit at home business as usual being paid to do absolutely nothing. This is not a dig at those genuinely unable to work or have lost their job because of the pandemic who deserve the financial support to keep food on the table and a roof over their heads.

    It’s more annoyance at the definitely sizeable proportion of the town who have sat on their backsides for the past decade or so and not even attempted to do an honest day’s work in their lives and even attempt to pay council tax to keep this town going. Why should we all foot the bill and be threatened with bailiffs if we can’t afford to pay because we can’t earn enough money because of Covid?

    It is what it is I guess and normal times it wouldn’t be a problem, but now it is and it will be interesting to see how heavy the council come down on people as they are desperate to claw back revenue.

    Public Health Wales has both a complaints line and an urgent Covid concern line listed on their website. Might be worth a try if you can’t go through local GP.

    General Complaints is 02920104311

    Urgent Covid is 02920227744
