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.October 11, 2018 at 2:42 pm in reply to: Household Waste being put into, and by public bins. #157212
Supermarkets should pay towards waste collection. If we all started taking the packaging from our shopping back to the supermarkets it would cut down the amount in our bins no end.
Back in the dark ages before the advent of supermarkets, there was just one bin, a fraction of the size of todays bins & everything went in it. The bin men collected them from the back garden, carried them on their shoulders to the bin lorry to be emptied & then returned them.October 11, 2018 at 2:24 pm in reply to: Kingdom Zero Tolerance video evidence blocked by Wrexham Council bureaucracy #157211
Our council/ residents still had to clear the rubbish but did not get the full revenue.
Fine people by all means for intentional littering as in fly tipping or rubbish left at the side of litter bins & dog poo. The money from fines then could pay for the emptying of bins more regularly & an increase in employment.October 5, 2018 at 8:32 pm in reply to: 'We don't feel safe in Wrexham in the daylight' shock survey finds #156903
I have never been afraid or unsafe in Wrexham in the daytime. I don’t tend to go into town at night-time.
I find people sitting on the floor in front of shop windows zonked out of their minds a bit off-putting.
If you are an alcoholic you can join Alcoholics Anonymous which I understand is a self help group for people who want to get off alcohol. Is there nothing similar for drug takers?September 28, 2018 at 8:49 am in reply to: "Give your feedback on plans to place average speed cameras on Wrexham bypass" #156513
It is rather ridiculous that national speed limits apply on many country roads than on a purpose built dual carriageway by-pass.
I am no expert but I would think that stop – start motoring contributes more to pollution than smooth running at any speed. Speed bumps & traffic calming a perfect case in mind.
Dagg does have a bit of a point about teachers but then they have earned to right to wear what they like.
The problem with no dress code is where all this designer rubbish comes in. Kids from less well off families will pressure their parents into spending money they can’t afford to keep up. At least school uniform gives a reasonably level playing field & most can be washed & dried overnight, even blazers.
Better a sticking plaster than nothing at all. Standards have been slipping ever since St Davids had a name change. Pupils are no longer proud to belong to a school which was at one time recognised as the premier school in Wales musically. Now the only thing that they are recognised for is their appalling standards & behaviour. Discipline begins at home. When parents fail it is left to teachers.
