    What lucid points you make Matt. Well said.

    I suspect this “reluctant” decision is more about strengthening the tory grip on power.

    She has said this is to strengthen her hand in negotiations and to bring stability within the palace of Westminster. Why? she got her article 50 trigger through. If she and the government negotiate a decent deal, what’s her problem?

    If Mrs May can change her mind on this, what else can she change her mind on? I am mindful of all that “equality” rhetoric she spouted on entering No. 10.

    “What Wrexham needs is an open air cinema” – said no one ever!!!!

    I have long since been a supporter of the creation of an “arts hub” in town, but this bit is really baffling me!

    Dear god, those who remember the Glynne cinema will recall the rain hitting the tin roof, but at least it had one!!!

    I view the shortage of lettuce as an infringement of my human rights. The Spanish government are denying us these basics of human existence as a punishment for our legitimate vote to leave the EU. I shall take this matter all the way to the Court of human rights in Strasbourg if I have to. Oh wait……

    I was travelling from Wrexham Station this morning and there was no parking available there. There will be plenty of parking photo’s to take there.

    Seriously parkingmad. If the cars are parked and causing an obstruction to the highway, report it to the police, don’t post threats on here. The parkers might not read this forum anyway!!

    So, come on fellow fellows and others, let’s not vote with our feet

    It’s people voting with their feet that won the referendum for “leave” in the UK and elected Trump in the USA. This practice, which as you say Daave63 is unhygienic and needs to be outlawed, by law if necessary. Can you imagine who would run our beloved County Council if this practice was practiced in Wrexham.

    I commend the motion to the house.

    Yes business will offer ‘incentives ‘ quite often but why should we as ratepayers have to pay for the workers in the Public Sector.

    Well you might as well extend that point to cover wages full stop. Let’s have the council staffed by volunteers then ratepayers will save a huge amount of money.

    If the wage bill were to rise by hundreds of thousands of pounds as you suggest to cover “perks”, or any significant amount, it would be picked up at audit.

    Wrexham County Borough Council is an employer like any other. People who work for the council do so for their own reasons, but the reward is, I would suggest the main motive. Like any other employer, WCBC have to put a range of benefits in place to attract or retain the best employees like any other employer. Quite frankly Carol Thomas, it is a cost of running the business. You could argue the council has money tied up in the guildhall, that could be released and used “at a time of such massive service custs” (sic). It isn’t as simple as cost against cost.

    It also occurs to me that there is a cost in answering petty “freedom of information” requests that could divert to other things.

    Why the need for a big debate?
    The site has been listed by WAG.
    The site has a covenant, which says it can only be used for educational purposes
    The area needs a new school.

    As has been said, an imaginative architect will come up with plans to meet all the criteria. An imaginative lawyer will also come up with a definition to suit an interpretation of the covenant. So some kind of museum or arts establishment could be deemed “educational”.

    Instead of fighting the “listing” why don’t WCBC go back to the WAG to ask for funding to develop a new school on the site, on the basis they have to use the existing building at the say so of WAG.
    Every body wins!

    Oh please, it’s hardly the crime of the century. Tell her to bugger off if she approaches you.
