    Perhaps now that Ian Lucas is no longer the MP for Wrexham, we can reflect on his contribution to a recent debate in the House of Commons which will explain the reason for him not supporting the result of the referendum or the peoples vote, call it what you like. Perhaps he knew the real story all along….

    .
    Anyone who seriously believes what Johnson or Farage says must be deluded. Not even their own partners believe them. There were some good reasons for voting Leave but Boris and Nigel dont believe in those. They are in it for themselves, not for you or the country.

    Well put. As for the original poster. Why not vote Labour. They have a new candidate, so you won’t be voting for Mr Lucas and they are offering a new referendum. So, if you are sure the majority still want Brexit, they’ll vote the same way again and hey presto!!!

    I know a lot of people on here and in Wrexham at large are anti-Eagles Meadow but at least we still have an M&S and Debenhams presence in the town. Quite a lot of towns and cities don’t. So, I;m making a plea, to put aside the anti-Eagles Meadow feeling and physically use these stores rather than shop online or shop in other locations. It’s the only way we can help these shops survive in town. Of course we can’t prevent the BHS situation but we can help stop stores being picked off one by one. There are lots of other stores there too. It will profit no one to have that place as a ghost shopping centre.

    votethecoucillorsout, your original and subsequent post show have a very selective grasp on reality but a very real ability to distort matters. Ian Lucas has represented his constituents on many and varied matters. Brexit is one in which he differs from the electorate as they expressed themselves in the 2016 referendum. But, in light of the subsequent facts which have emerged, perhaps he represents the views of more people than your own personal view.

    So, wind yer neck in!

    Remainers are a bunch of moaning gits who prefer to hide behind Europe’s apron strings and are too afraid to take ANY risk at all.
    Bet you sh1t yourselfs crossing the street because it is too risky.
    What did we ever before we joined? I guess we survived it!

    WHat a reasoned and cogent argument you make Wrex-iT. I’m surprised you are not standing for election to advance your model of respect and open mindedness.

    It is also a fact that the referendum result was only advisory, See House of Commons briefing note 07172

    I joined the Boycott group on facebook briefly and it was pretty clear most members were just interested in doing away with parking charges in Wrexham altogether and promoting Broughton as a shopping destination.

    Whilst I agree there should be a period of grace for picking up or delivering people from and to the station, Island Green is a commercial venture and car park revenues will be part of the revenue stream.

    However, since Cllr Pritchard has negotiated a 20 minute “free” period will that be also be offered at WCBC car parks?

    Yes, I knew that too. It has always been the case. However, it’s not just local authority staff employed on elections. I have done it myself (bored out of my skull!) and I never worked for the LA. I know of retired people who do it as well. It is paid out of a separate budget provided by the electoral commission. So, no story here!!

    Fair enough Mr Bow, we can all make free choices thankfully! I don’t understand the logic, but your choice. However, the one thing Wrexham isn’t short of is supermarkets and last time I looked there was a Tesco extra pretty close to EM. But once everyone has turned their back on Wrexham we can all go to Broughton, or Chester or god forbid, Prestatyn to save the parking charge!

    But at least I know where to go when I want to buy my Clogau Gold!!!

    Let me first say that, like many of you, I agree that “High Street” shopping is on it’s knees The addition of EM has made the situation worse for Wrexham because it just adds retail space with no retailers to fill it. But, until EM came along, Wrexham never had (for example) a Debenhams. The old M&S store did not meet their then demands which is to have park and collect facilities available adjacent to the store and would probably have closed already.

    However, my main point is to question why anyone would rather pay the price of fuel to drive to (say) Broughton, just to save the £1.50 parking charge (for up to 3 hours) at Eagles Meadow. I bet the drive costs more than £2.00
