    Just e mailed her asking if she thought that it was reasonable to put your wife and child into a motor vehicle driving on a 60 mile round journey to test one’s eyesight and then taking an even longer journey. Plus does she think that it is reasonable that a cabinet minister has admitted publicly that he has done the same and others have supported this action, including the Secretary of State for Health.
    Am expecting and answer NO

    Could be even more interesting as this evening it would appear that he was seen on more than one occasion out and about whilst supposedly self isolating.
    Brings into question his defence put forward by Cabinet members and the deputy chief medical officer of England.

    I have been working out the average daily admissions to hospital for those testing positive for the virus in the 2 areas which boarder Wales in this area, they being Cheshire West and Shropshire, and then factored in those for Wrexham ( Calculations are per head of population of those areas, the figures supplied by the government not the Office of National Statistics, which I believe are more accurate picture.) For the period of the 7th to 13th May : Wrexham 9 Shropshire 15 Cheshire West 8. Week 14th to 20th May : Wrexham 9 Shropshire 12 Cheshire West 11.
    Figures for the 21st are Wrexham 2 Shropshire 14 Cheshire West 15.
    Now readers can read into those figures what they want, but it will be interesting in 3 weeks to review the figures for the English areas who have had restrictions relaxed against those in Wales.

    Welsh Water a very good example of a source of income should Wales become independent. Example Llyn Efyrnwy ( Lake Vyrnwy ) Constructed in the 1880s by submerging the village of Llanwddyn for the supply of water to the Liverpool Water Corporation. To day it supplies water to over 900,000 customers in the Cheshire and Merseyside area and that is just one section of England that Welsh Water supplies.

    Worked for many years out of the GPO/Bt engineering base and had to transit under the bridge driving a number of works vehicles both large and small without a problem.
    Though do remember when BT first tried to sell the site for private housing was the sustained objections by the council to (A) the junction and increased traffic and (B) the bridge again increased traffic passing underneath. Eventually the site was sold and developed as a keep fit centre and then sold on and became a housing estate.
    Strange that the council eventually approved the area for domestic development for which it refused the original application and blocked the sale of the site.
    The road layout i.e., junction / bridge have remained the same.

    Worked there in the late 60s and early 70s, revisited recently and was surprised how vibrant the place was, it was evident that the revitalised town had reinvented itself around individual traders offering a wide variety of services, plus the market and had centralised the public transport around the old railway station.

    I agree with eyeman, every city, town has the same problems to a degree. I also visit Chester and they have a similar if not worse problem than Wrexham. Walk round the rows late evening or early morning and you are falling over rough sleepers or avoiding human waste. The only difference between Chester and Wrexham is that Chester city centre is much larger and operates on two levels ( ground and the rows ) so such undesirables are spread over a much larger area.

    Visited around 1300 hours today, few stalls open, shutters down in others and less then ten people walking round, no one sitting at the tables.
