Farkwittery firstly you must control your enthusiasm – it is obvious that don’t like the facts but you must not sink to low levels of abuse – even in relation to councillors! If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say it at all.
You may wish to patronise Ty Pawb along with 9 or 10 others, so I think its only fair to the majority of us that the 10 of you pay £450,000 each for the privilege and £30,000 each per annum for its upkeep and running. I will continue to use the Country Parks and will have to pay £1, I am not asking you for a contribution to my parking. Unfortunately, the many thousands of families with kids will ultimately have to pay £5 per visit to fund the failing Ty Pawb project, so get your cheque book out ! Ask yourself the honest question – would you take a stall in Ty Pawb ?
I think not !
The Wrexham leader reported today:
Ty Pawb – Stallholders wanted at Wrexham’s new arts hub
How prophetic my words of yesterday predicting that the Council had no takers for the stalls in the rapidly failing Ty Pawb project – who in their right mind would invest their money in an arts project in Wrexham ? It must be said that the rich people of Altringham, upon whom this project was modelled on, will refuse to travel to see our homeless in every shop doorway?
The councillors must take full responsibility and accountability – I can see more lemmings leaping into the abyss when even they realise that the project is failing before the white elephant is completed.
Unfortunately, it took intelligence, local knowledge and foresight to reach this conclusion.
Vote the Councillors Out.
Wrexham.com have reported “Bithell points out ‘if we do not generate income in one way, we will have to cut services’.
They, our esteemed Councillors are spending and estimated £300k per annum running Ty Pawb and £100k on the opening day alone – how does this fit with Bithell’s statement above, which was made today. Ty Pawb, A vanity project to puff out the chests of councillors at our collective expense. We will follow Northampton’s bankrupt model, that is the only thing that will save us from these councillors.
Vote the councillors out.
Wonderful News – TJ’s former building to house Techniquest, what an opportunity to ensure the filling of the remaining stalls at Ty Pawb – The Hadron Collider stall, the Space Debris Stall, the Intersteller Satellite Stall, the Moondust Stall, these are bound to appeal to the other 0.000000001% of the Wrexham population and justify the £4.5 million set up costs and the annual £300K running costs (Bershams complete council tax revenue) !
Vote the Councillors out.
Let’s merge two of the headline topics on Wrexham.com this week. The ‘Grand Opening’ of Ty Pawb and also the reported fact that Wrexham (along with Cardiff) has the highest Rough Sleepers/Homeless numbers in Wales. What do we get when we merge these topics – “The Ty Pawb Day-Care Centre”.
The Council have provided a £4.5 million day care centre for the homeless where they can leave the night shelters and streets and keep dry, warm and clean during the day whilst admiring the ‘art’ in Ty Pawb . If they bring their bedding with them, they will provide art to match the highly regarded Unmade Bed of Tracy Emmin. In fact, given the much publicised “Statues of King Street”, a completely new human art-form could be established at Ty Pawb much to the envy of Altrincham !
With the PC status of the world today, which councillors or council officials will deny access? Are they (the people) to be deprived of the cultural jewels that Ty Pawb promises?
Unfortunately, Liz Jackson, you have Councillors disease, not reading or choosing to understand what is written. I appreciate that my views on Ty Pawb may be mine and mine alone and that is why I have repeatedly asked Wrexham.com to speak to normal people in the street and report their views. Wrexham.com are always keen to promote Ty Pawb by talking to market stall holders and reporting their views, however, these have a vested interest in the project. It is the man in the street that will determine the success or failure of this project and how much it will cost constituents – man, woman, child, the able and the disabled. I like Wrexham.com, however my request to promote a balanced view, including public opposition to the project is not unreasonable – not one word of public opposition has been reported. In a wide spectrum of people known to me, from all ages, I have heard no one speak in favour of this vanity project given the background of the cuts the council are imposing (proposing) along with their ‘justifiable ‘ increases in council tax. Where was I during the elections? Every Mighty Oak begins with an Acorn and the seed needs to be sown….
Another ducking of the question. You spoke with market traders and others (?) but again ducked the question regarding the views of the ‘normal people in the street’. Your time would have been more productively spent speaking to the people who will be feeding the White Elephant not hoping to profit from its spectacle.
Where was I ? Too busy working, trying to make ends meet to pay the ever increasing Council Tax and general taxes to fund the “elephant” and its upkeep.
I have learnt that it is a waste of time talking to Councillors who generally do exactly what their particular group want, irrespective of its popularity or common sense. On infrequent occasions, they do stand up for what is popular and right, e.g. not building more houses, only to be undemocratically beaten back and blackmailed by threats from the Council and in turn the Welsh government.
Only direct Public action will see a change – Boycott Ty Pawb and teach them a lesson. The recriminations will be a spectacle to behold !
Nice try Wrexham.com i.e, “we have asked ‘this question and that question’ and the answers are ‘here and there’ mainly from incompetent councillors. You didn’t answer the ‘get off your butt’ question re. speaking to people in the street with the question – “DO YOU SUPPORT WREXHAM COUNCIL SUPPORTING THE SPENDING OF £4.5 MILLION ON AN ARTS CENTRE IN THE TOWN – THE FUTURE RUNNING COSTS OF WHICH WILL FALL UPON COUNCIL TAX PAYERS”.
Ty Pawb must be boycotted by normal people to teach the Councillors a lesson that they will not repeat i.e, Act democratically in the interest of the majority. Councillors vanity projects will NOT be supported. We are WREXHAM not Altrincham.
VOTETHECOUNCILLORSOUTJanuary 26, 2018 at 11:17 pm in reply to: Wrexham Council to re-advertise for Chief Executive position #143822
“why appoint a chief executive when the real power is held by a bunch of half wits?”
I think you’re being a bit generous with the “half” !
The first step is to get our weak-livered council to stand up to the Welsh Government and tell them straight – No More New Houses will be approved until services are brought up to a standard that can withstand the increase in population that these generate. It is ridiculous to promote population growth with the current pressure on,
Hospitals, Ambulance Service, Schools, Doctors & Surgeries, Dentists and Roads. someone has to stand up to the welsh Government, whatever the cost…. SAY NO TO ANY MORE NEW HOUSEs
