    Oh well. Now ‘The Monitor’ has flounced off in a self-important huff, that’s the thread ruined for everyone.

    LOL LOL

    My message to ‘The Monitor’ is to Bore Off

    Yes the Monitor’s stance is my “Great Grandmother syndrome” i.e. Two candidates one is a Tory and one is a Donkey she would vote for the Donkey :)

    I still fail to see the reason why they cannot re-adopt the system that was used when parking was first made free at Wrexham Maelor.

    i.e. You took a ticket from the machine that was for 2 hours or maybe it was three, if you needed more time you just went out and got anther ticket, that would stop the all day parkers from town, staff should have their own areas and permits.

    Even if there were no attendants checking tickets people never actually know this is the case and not many would chance it.

    Again, there are costs involved in renewing and servicing the machines that The Trust don’t want to incur.

    It used to work though AMA and something needs to be done.

    There might be a black hole in the pot hole funding budget but there is still plenty of money in the yellow paint pot! More unnecessary yellow lines appeared in Garden Village ! Surely time the Council make a list of needs before they spend any more money on fripperies!

    Where are the unnecessary yellow lines in Garden Village?

    I guess they are at the top end of Kenyon Avenue by the shops.

    The Council don’t have to make the Parking in their Car Parks completely free to help improve the town, merely make it STRATEGIC.

    Prices were bumped up in the good times and now need looking at carefully. There seems to be a juggling act going on here, finding a Car Pricing policy which maximises on Parking Revenue yet does not destroy the town. Talk to a Councillor, and they will state that they can’t reduce the charges, talk to a Shop owner, and they will insist on free parking.

    What we do know, however, is that the Car Parking within the town is not all being done by either Shoppers or Tourists (who often exercise choice depending on Cost). There are also Workers.

    So…..reduce Car Parking Charges right across every short stay Car Park from 10.00am, if possible to zero. Put the prices up in the long stay Car Parks (and on anyone parking before 10.00am)…….plus open up more street spaces to Car Parking, plus place meters on them and Charge.

    But why aren’t people who can influence these things looking at all these very good/sensible thought out suggestions ?

    When I say free, I do mean a managed free, for example at the Hospital it should be free, but you should need to take a ticket for say three hours and then renew it if you need to stay longer like it was when free parking was first introduced there, I don’t know why they have not implemented this which would stop the town workers parking there all day.

    Again Matt is on the right lines with the town especially at Christmas free parking where people who work in the town park there all day and their usual parking places like Westminster Drive is empty! although I know they came up with something with free parking after 10 am last year.

    It just needs thinking through a bit, if possible!

    Build another multi-storey (there’s already one there that very few people know about) at the hospital and it could be used during the day by staff and patients. On weekend nights it could quite easily be used as a parking area, with a park-and-ride service, for large events in the town.[/quote

    They could also charge people to park their cars there on a football match day or other events.]

    Here’s a new one FREE PARKING !

    We’ll have to agree to disagree. I think the new slabs look much better than the old red bricks, much more modern. In fact, the town centre almost looked nice with all the lights up at Christmas time last year. It looks lighter and cleaner overall. Of course they are going to dull and get a bit dirty during this weather, but in the summertime this will look superb, I reckon.

    I also agree, you may knock the cost of it in these times I guess, but they do look better than the red paviers which now look dated, and reminds me of the big area in Rhyl that is brick paved and looks c***

    P.s. Those moaning – well you should have all voted for and campaigned harder for Andrew Atkinson and pushed him over the line. He was 100% for Brexit all the way.

    I did not see a single person on here or on Facebook or Twitter or in the press backing Andrew and his Brexit views. Andrew was your once in a generation chance to get rid of Labour from town. He was the bookies favourite and Election statistics mathematical certainty to take the seat.

    Why do you think all of the Labour activists gave him such a hard time?

    There is almost no chance that Atkinson’s replacement will ever command enough voters to beat Lucas. There are a very vocal number who say they will never vote for Lucas again, but there’s a silent majority that like MP1953 says will vote in their local Labour candidate to keep the Tories out. It’s been over 100 years now of no Tory MP in Wrexham.

    So Andrew, I know we don’t and will probably never see eye to eye, but you can know this, that you would have been a hell of a lot popular now with your views as an MP in this current Brexit deadlock and debacle.

    In a town like Wrexham you could stick a Labour rosette on an chimpanzee and it would most likely win the seat. Most people aren’t single issue voters, so you can’t just use the issue of Brexit to get a Conservative elected as MP of a town which has long been anti-Tory.

    Atkinson was doing well in the polls, as were many Conservatives across the country early on in the campaign, the wheels fell apart not due to a lack of trying on a local level, but because Theresa May started to plummet in the polls due to her awful campaigning and mean-spirited manifesto. So eventually Labour won the seats that they are normally expected to win in Wales.

    One of the big issues in British politics right now is the lack of representation for people, generally in working class areas like Wrexham, who lean left-wing in an economic sense, but also take a dim view of the EU, high immigration, identity politics, etc. The disconnect between Labour MP’s and their constituents in Leave-voting areas has never been starker.

    Yep that’s it pretty much summed up with regards to Labour, the plp does not represent traditional Labour voters any more who are mostly young idealists. LABOUR should be 25% ahead in the polls right now.
