    Zinger, I’d like to add that in the case of your elderly relative that sounds like a case of someone being overlooked and something that needs to be chased up. But as a general rule the people I’ve heard complaining expect there to a vaccination for their dog by next week at the latest.

    Surely though, they are getting vaccines into arms when they are available and as soon as physically possible? It’s not like we are incapable of doing mass vaccinations – winter flu seasonal jabs should at least provide some level of expertise in the logistical challenges of carrying it out.

    That is aside from the obvious special issues mentioned previously regarding Pfizer vaccines going to waste if people don’t turn up due to storage issues AND whether it’s medically sound to only have 1 shot rather than 2 against the company’s recommendations.

    It’s quite simply the case that people are just getting restless and impatient. There’s lots of people to go through, we’re all in a queue and we’ll all get our vaccinations in due time.

    Lots of people just huffing and puffing and saying WELL MY ELDERLY RELATIVE HASN’T HEARD ANYTHING is leading to people thinking nothing is being done. Most of these people are probably in good health and in their 70s and not due to be done yet. Thousands of examples of anecdotal evidence all building up to a misleading picture.

    What office staff are being vaccinated? Is it those who have to do admin work in hospitals? In which case this would make sense, otherwise the majority of non essential office work can be done remotely and from home.

    Benjamin, yes I’ve also seen online that the owner categorically denies being open/the recipient of the fine.

    However, it seems a bit strange that the police and senior council members would get something this serious wrong before putting information on the council news site and it being released to Wrexham.com/Daily Post.

    Both Wrexham.com and the Post are known to take down or correct articles that are factually incorrect and contain potentially libellous and damaging information. These articles have not been taken down or edited yet.

    There is further information on social media that the person in question was actively advertising services were still open as usual after lockdown was announced.

    It’s the usual case of factually unverified information doing rounds on Facebook and Twitter versus more reliable information from official sources and regulated media sources.

    Hopefully someone will be able to clear this up as otherwise it makes a complete mockery of enforcement process if either an incorrect business can be named and shamed and cause them reputational damage. Or if they did do it can just worm their way out of being made an example of by issuing a denial.

    One of them is still advertising themselves as open and taking bookings for today and tomorrow over Facebook

    Yes good to hear the roll out amongst staff is going well, 90% is definitely better protection than 0.

    It will be interesting to see in general if once the most vulnerable have all had at least one jab if the hospitalisation numbers and ultimately death numbers start dropping around North East Wales.

    All you need to know is:

    Sergeant Bertha Blast

    Also, it sounds like Simon has a major fascination with Keyser Soze. We’ve all seen it Simon and we all know the ending.

    Simon is firing off pot shots and being very wide of the mark on all counts.

    Yes, there are a large contingent of us Labour minded who you are right, won’t ever be pleased to see the likes of Atherton representing the town.

    However, it’s certainly not one size fits all as he’s also having a pop at Welsh Nationalists with completely unfounded stereotypes. So, as it stands it’s not even an accurate representation of local Plaid or Wrexham fans and means the rest of us who are critical of Atherton do not fall into a single type of complainant either.

    The left extremist rant very much sounds like Twice Impeached President rhetoric to me.

    We’re not all tank aficionados who love a bit of a combo of Ronald McDonald and Sgt. Bertha Blast to ‘take the reins’ for the town.

    I don’t think we’re really getting anywhere on this, it’s all very fraught and stressful and people deal differently about others getting in their personal space or to seeing those not playing by the rules. I just take the view that I want to keep myself to myself as much as possible and spend as little time as possible in areas with lots of people and just keep my distance, so that’s my defensive move.

    This is out of genuine interest Chill and hope that things are progressing forward as they should be. In the past you mentioned that workers at the Maelor weren’t being routinely tested as they should be. Has this situation improved at all?

    Also, have you or any of your colleagues been vaccinated yet? (First dose? Or whatever). As this is a private medical matter you don’t have to answer, but it would be reassuring to know that staff at the hospital in the area are front of the queue to be protected.

    The fact that this thread has descended into a petty squabble and who can get in the best personal insults over difference in opinion just goes to prove why in these stressful times in public situations it’s far better to keep your head down and focus on what you are doing rather than stick your neb into other people’s business.

    Thanks for giving me a good laugh Benjamin, Aristotle and jigsaws – you’re not all bad.
