    Concentrate people.. concentrate. Don’t bring other issues into a problem. First solve the problem in hand, then move on to solving the next. Blaming the police is pointless. Perhaps give them the means by a change of the law to enable them to deal with itinerants, tinkers, didicoys etc. before condemning them. Sense huh? rather than personal bias?

    In view of the recent events with the 10 Labour Councillors resigning from the Labour Group and Labour Party and more importantly resigning from the manifesto on which they had all been elected a Vote of No Confidence in the administration should be called.
    Joining with the Mark Pritchard- Independents Group (he a nil electorate majority as no candidate stood against him at last Election — there was nit even a Labour candidate yet they stood in nearly every other ward- one wonders why a traditional Labour area did not field a candidate ) is now a complete nonsense as at no time has the Electorate ever seen any Manifesto for this Group as they had all been elected on very local issues and with no County wide mandate. If they became the controlling Group then this would be one of the biggest travesties in democracy not only in Wrexham but probably the UK. How could a ‘Group’ of Independents that has no manifesto, No mandate, No proposals for Wrexham possibly lead the area through the current financial and service turmoil.
    Now that NATO have gone let us hope for the sake of the area that the First Minister intervenes and send in the Commissioners to deal with the all the back biting and side swipes that will be inevitable till the next election in 2017 unless the WG sort it now. We deserve more in Wrexham than this form of political ‘anarchy’!

    By definition an ‘Independent’ is INDEPENDENT as soon as she/he joins a ‘group’; they are no longer Independent!

    It is already intended that the police department servicing the town will take over the present Oriel section of the library building. Definitely proof that the philistines are still living. This move also raises the question of . . . How much of the public car park will that eat up! Another clueless piece of ‘planning’.

    There should be NO politics involved at Local Government level. Councillors should represent, ie. speak for, their respective electorate. Transmitting the views of their electorate for discussion and informing others of the council. Decisions can then be made based not on the political bent of a few men/women, but based upon the views of the many comprising the electorate.

    Being a Councillor should be a badge of merit, not requiring the payment of substantial expenses.

    The Plas Madoc Leisure Centre decision and the basis for the present state of affairs requires more explanation and a release to the public of real figures of monetary expenses not rounded up totals. What was the total cost of the “Consultants”? Was there any hidden agendum? How much were councillors (or the elite executive board) influenced by the EMPLOYED officials? If Plas Madoc Leisure Centre is allowed to die then every one of the existing councillors should stand for re-election immediately. No waiting for the next scheduled Local elections.

    In reference to the START DATE FOR DEMOLITION. I would suggest that ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE CONCERNED ABOUT Plas Madoc Leisure Centre, be there on the DATE and PREVENT any movement of demolition equipment and personell getting to the site. DO NOT TRUST that the postponement of the meeting will stop the demolition. DO NOT TRUST!
