    She’s not the MP for Wrexham, she’s the MP for the Armed Forces

    She’s since said that the NHS will not be included in any trade talks.
    I’d say to her “prove it”

    Jonathan Ashworth does say that the A & E situation in N Wales is unacceptable, but he goes on to point out that the NHS in England is in a worse situation
    “It is unacceptable, and sadly it is happening constantly in the English NHS. Of course, on certain performance targets there is improvement in Wales; there is no improvement on any performance targets when it comes to A&E or electives in the English ​NHS.” (Hansard 27/1/2020)
    But she makes no mention of this.
    Her intervention on brewing was hardly earth-shattering
    “A few years ago, I owned and ran a microbrewery, so I know some of the difficulties facing breweries, including the fledgling Magic Dragon brewery in Wrexham. I urge the Minister to support the cut in beer duty and increase small brewers relief.” (Hansard 5/2/2020)
    A total of 8 interventions to date, plus lots of photographs of her holding various placards from charities and lobby groups. Blistering!

    The media obviously looking for Wrexham to go Tory in order to generate a raft of news articles and comments.
    Coverage like we’ve seen this week becomes self-fulfilling as those shy Tory voters, who would otherwise consider their vote to be wasted, come out in their droves if they think they have chance.

    Town centres are dead – and no amount of public money poured into them will bring them back to life.
    It’s not just shops that have gone; it’s all the other things that we used to go into town for as well. Going to the bank, paying the electric bill, paying the gas bill, paying the council tax, going to the insurance office, going to the post office….All these have become online functions and have been sold to us as “convenient” and “modern”. And we’ve all fallen for theme.
    So don’t shout at the council. We’re all complicit in the demise of the town centre.

    Do I detect a touch of cynicism?

    I think every match played by Wrexham FC so far this season should be replayed now, because I don’t think the results were right….

    May wasn’t unopposed. Andrea Leadsom blew her chances with some stupid media remarks.
    The previous Labour government had to borrow to get the country out of the mess created by the banks and the finance industry in 2008. It was a Labour PM who put together the plan to pull the world economy out of crisis. Cameron and Osborne were protesting that the proposed controls on the banking sector were too strict.

    There seem to be a number of Wrexham councillors who don’t understand the workings of local councils.

    Because the Tories persuaded the country that austerity was the only way to overcome the global recession caused by their mates in the banking industry.
