    It may take a while to sort out the finer details but I am sure that we will get there in the end. It took the EU a bit of time. I seem to remember butter & beef mountains & milk & wine lakes in the 80’s.
    I worry that our industries were moved across the continent & our fields & flood plains have been built on. Is there anyone in the UK with the skills to bring it back?
    If those same people who aspire to be brighter than those who voted Brexit, were to apply themselves it would make it so much easier all round.
    Some of those of ex politicians who are dead set against Brexit have very nice well paid jobs across the water.

    The children are the losers in this sorry situation. I haven’t viewed the film but how sad that she would embarrass them in this way. There was a time when an eviction would be a cause for shame.

    Today I was in close proximity to a situation where upon a lady was having severe chest pains. A nearby first aider did his best to reassure the lady & her family. A 999 call put through to the ambulance service took 10 minutes to be answered. After giving what details he could, he was advised to call back if her condition deteriorated. He explained that it had taken 10 minutes to get the initial call through & was very concerned that a further 10 minutes wait might be too late. The phone call was terminated. 30 minutes later the ambulance service called back to check on the patients condition and that an ambulance had not yet been dispatched. He offered to take the lady to hospital in his car and was told that it was his own decision & would be his responsibility. An ambulance arrived about 5 minutes later. This incident took place within approximately 1 mile of the ambulance station.
    The NHS is not in danger – it is broken.

    Llay side of Alyn Waters had neither toilet facilities or a cafe the last time I was there. It’s a tidy walk to Gwersyllt if you need those facilities.

    Where did people walk their dogs before country parks? It isn’t a new thing.
    Dog lovers are amongst the kindest people I know. Children with pets learn how to care for others rather than care only about themselves.
    Don’t tar all dog walkers with the same brush. Many are elderly and have a pet for company.
    People who throw litter, cans & bottles etc are far more antisocial because they do it knowingly.

    Just a bit concerned that if the posters are removed and Kingdom just happen to be around, what will happen if any bits of the posters fall onto the ground whilst they are working. Will they still get fined?

    There is a ‘Wales in Bloom’ sign on a road traffic island by a supermarket which doesn’t have single flower on it. Shouldn’t large businesses like supermarkets be encouraged to sponsor nearby roundabout maintenance as part of their community project.

    I agree with this. It isn’t fair that sick patients or people with young children visiting hospitals with cancer or respiratory conditions should have to walk past the smokers who congregate by the hospital entrances.

    There have always been people who for one reason or another don’t want to conform with everyday society. We used to call them tramps or roadsters. A few came from wealthy families & were university educated. Most would ask if they could do a small job in exchange for a cup of water or a slice of bread.
    Druggies are a different species & not one penny of my money would go to feed their habit. 100 people giving a £1 coin equals £100.
