    some people used to go there three times a day for the benefit of the above that is 3 pounds.

    By three times a day I presume you mean dog walkers ? Surely this is a good thing, it will mean less dog mess to be picked up resulting in a cleaner park for everyone. It’s not as if they contribute anything to the park either other than using the parking facilities.

    Reaches for tin hat.

    Agree, all that parks are these days is S*** Houses for dogs, gone are the days where you would let your children do roly polys on the grass, as the residue is still there even when it is picked up..

    Jesus Matt, it’s a pound for 24 hours. A pound. £1. A single pound.

    Honestly son, sometimes it looks like your hooked on outrage.
    It’s only 9am and you’re already bonkers angry, doesn’t bode well for the rest of the day.

    Look at that nice Alun Hughes (smashing looking lad).
    People stay out late and get up early just to literally shit on his doorstep.
    You never see him kicking off like this.
    Think on.

    Ha Sheefag Are you John Bercow :)

    Aaron Banks running rings around Ian Lucas

    I see it as the both of them running rings round the whole DCMS committee, but there again I think that is because there is nothing to answer so therefore it was easy for them, and what a waste of time. IMO

    I do actually feel bad for smokers these days, cigarettes hidden away so they have to play a game of guess if you have the brand in stock behind the closed barriers. Richmond Lights – is that the brand with the tumour bursting out of the throat or the one with the man coughing up blood?

    Government think they are doing smokers a favour by putting on these horrific images as a deterrent whilst laughing all the way to the bank with their billions in duties on tobacco products.

    Most smokers these days are polite and considerate where they smoke due to its social stigma – I find that especially so if you have children with you.

    I’d say if after the cost hurdles, stigma, deterrents, bans, lectures etc… most smokers who were going to quit would have done so by now. They make their own health decisions like the rest of us. It’s a fairly safe bet that effects of passive smoking have been mitigated in public places – so those worrying about 5 seconds of smoke contact are being a bit precious.

    Again all valid points, but one thing still intrigues me as to why there are still so many teenagers still taking it up, and of course the price has no relevance to them as they never knew the time when the cost of 20 fags was under a shilling !!

    This thread reeks of holier than thou.

    Is that less than holy smell of stale smoke coming from you IMHO?

    Actually he looks like Nen:

    Non smoker here; i dislike the holier than thou ban it brigade is all.

    People are human and you should not forget that.

    Just think how good the world would be if everyone was like you, staunchly upright, pure in thought and deed, mindful, right thinking doesn’t upset anyone et al. Yawn. As i said, holier than thou.

    By the way, have any of you noticed just how bad the world is? Death and destruction abounds and all you lot can bang on about is banning smoking. Well done you!

    Well said IMHO but unfortunately this opinion will have no credence with the Politically Correct, Liberal, tea candle lighting (that will solve everything) brigade as I like to call them, again back to the topic, I say this as a non smoker now for the last ten years, but previously a smoker for over 30 years.

    Called there again this morning, believe me it is nothing like the pictures above, (i.e. people there) there were more people who work there than visitors by a long way, the place was deserted.

    There is such an irony with the issue of smoking on health premises – Smoking and make you ill so you go to a hospital for whatever treatment to receive medication when you then smoke to higher the risk of smoking-related illnesses.
    If Berwyn prison can be made smoke free (before anyone jumps in there is illegal smoking there) surely the hospital grounds can be for patients and staff.
    Berwyn issues nicotine patches so why can’t the hospital- as you can tell I am not nor ever have been a smoker.

    The last sentence here may well be poignant, in that these sort of decisions are made by people who have never smoked and have no sympathy or understanding of how hard it is for smokers to go any length of time without having a puff, this from a former smoker of 30 plus years.

    Its about time too, BUT! Some kind of facility/area has to be designated at hospitals for smokers – away from the main entrances of course. Yes they should all give up we know that, but Auntie Betsi get real – a smoker needs a fag even more when in hospital. But if they do smoke outside of the designated area, then taser them!

    I am afraid that is the sensible view, but when it comes to all sorts of issues these days it ain’t going to happen, common sense goes out of the window.

    I thought it is already banned at the Maelor as it stands now, but is not enforced, so who is going to enforce it ?

    I’ve heard them telling each other how much money they can make and know one from school who has confirmed the amounts they can beg on a daily basis actually. So yep!, from the horses mouth!

    I also know a few of them have been done for drug dealing and know for a fact they deal as I have seen them dealing to teens in the bus station.

    You know exactly what I mean about them looking hungry so stop trying to be sarcastic because you failed miserably.

    Not all are Wrexham born and bred, lots come in from other areas. And yes!, even if they are Wrexham residents, if they are littering, begging, dealing in drugs, throw them out of the town!!!

    I’m generally in the Janey and Sheefag camp :) especially when my 86 years old mother was surrounded by them when her scooter broke down in town !
