    I know experience is not everything, but as a long in the tooth, way past her sell by date old trollop myself, I think that being a local Councillor for little more than 8 months hardly qualifies Mr A to become a Lead Member on the Executive Board. I know experience can be only be gained over time, but surely for such ‘an important’ position their must be someone better suited to the role.

    I think for the Council as usual, its a case of dammed if you do and dammed if you don’t. People said the site would have be ideal for the new police station, it would have been ideal for Coleg Cambria, it would have been ideal for an art centre. Yer maybe, but, Council / WAG get their funds from different pots and can only be used for certain things. Grants are available to build things – like the bus station for instance – but cost of running and upkeep has to be met by the Council. I don’t agree with it, but unfortunately its the way of local government, and people need to understand the way it works.
    However, and I know its not WAG, but if Boris gets his way to build a bridge to France while the NHS is crawling on its knees then god help us all! ]
    If it wasn’t for the magnificent & dedicated front line staff in the NHS and the local council for that matter, the county would be in an even worse state than it is now. Blame the system not the staff!

    Profits put back into Public Services instead of cuts. Why has this not been put forward by all our professional number crunchers and Members in the Council?

    Jackpot. This is what needs to happen. The council need to hire a transport chief exec and set it all up. Run a high quality service around the county and link to other key locations. Monies get reinvested back into Wrexham.[/quote]

    JACKPOT! CRACKPOT more like. Sounds a great idea, just come up with £100 grand for a suitable DDA compliant bus – that’s just for one bus by the way. And even if you bend the Traffic Commissionaires rules regarding running a subsidised service on a commercial route, many well established bus companies have tried to take on ARRIVA/CROSVILLE over the years ie, the infamous no.1 route battle between Crosville & Wrights springs to mind, so to suggest the council suddenly rise up and take on the world is a quite a ludicrous idea! Going back to my original thread analogy, – Why do you think Abbie Lowe’s and all the other local shops for local people have gone to the wall and Tesco are thriving?

    Get real people!

    Without free parking they would not be able to do their duties so nobody should have an issue with Councillors or top Management being given free parking outside of their place of work.[/quote]

    How would they not be able to do their duties without ‘FREE’ parking?? Or even ‘OUTSIDE’ of their place of work?? Does every single Councilor or manager drive and own a car then? If not, they should be sacked by your argument!

    I am the ghost of christmas past, and I have been on my travels looking for somewhere to rest my weary bones. Somewhere quiet and peaceful, somewhere spacious and empty and my inner feng shui dictates that I go for the dead centre, and hey-presto found the perfect fit, Wrexham town – no attractions, no spirit, no soul, no heart!

    Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
