    Jimbow, as the Mayor attended the Service of Remembrance yesterday, are you saying that the British Legion should pay him for his attendance & the 1001 charitable events that he attends, that the charities should pay for his services?

    It would be better for landlords certainly but is it fair to treat people on benefits different to those in work? Working people with young families struggle too. As Matt said, paying for the roof over your head is your first priority.

    Exactly so Council Watcher. They are Centres of Excellence & as such should be accessible to all.

    We in the north of Wales are already health tourists to England. Alder Hey, Broad Green, Christies, Gobowen to name a few hospitals we use. Some of us realised that the Welsh Assembly in charge of the NHS in Wales wouldn’t work for north of the country.

    I suspect that it is what Councillor X is trying to say.

    I suspect that Maureen had her tongue in cheek.

    Was the referendum that took Britain into the common market legally binding? Or the referendum that gave Wales devolution? Or the one in 2011 which gave Cardiff law making powers over North Wales with a turnout of just over a third of the population of Wales?

    How do we know which referendums are legally binding & which aren’t?

    I agree with Birdman. You can’t tar all children with the same brush.

    Give a dog a bad name & he will live up to it.

    Much as I don’t like the new tradition of young children going from door to door on dark nights for safety reasons, I still get a small treat in and have never had any trouble.

    It used to be ‘Penny for the Guy mister’ in the old days.

    Maureen, a similar thing happened to me although the first responder was prompt as was the ambulance that she sent for.

    I signed myself out as after a 3 hour wait in an ambulance queue I was much better and feeling guilty for keeping the paramedics from other more serious cases. I left with a promise to visit my GP first thing in the morning for the same tests that I would have received in A & E.

    I too wondered why a room could not be set to one side with similar equipment, releasing ambulances & staff, even if a couple of paramedics took turns to man it. The reason for ambulance queues is because whilst in the ambulance, patients are being monitored. Patients waiting in A & E are triaged on arrival in much the same way & would be assessed for monitoring accordingly. Multiply my ambulance by those waiting, that was 12 paramedics & 6 ambulances out of action with more still in Maureen’s case.
