    Who will pay for this if it happens? My Council Tax? or will they cut services to fund it?

    Please take-away this ridiculous idea!

    I fully support it – sounds like a brilliant idea. Shaolin Monks, some of the most peaceful people on the planet – it’s an absolute privilege that they have chosen to come to Wrexham and want us to be twinned with their city.

    Thanks to Pol Wong for enabling this type of cross cultural exchange to happen.

    Maureen – Wok a good joke :)

    Why not? We can share some of our culture: freedom of speech, freedom of religion, freedom of association, to name a few aspects of our culture. Everyone can benefit from hearing about other cultures and beliefs; the conversation and exchange has to be two-way. Sharing doesn’t mean lecturing or demanding others adopt your traditions and values, just learning about them. Just wandering around visiting tourist sites is a bit shallow.

    Perhaps we could revive the link with Markischer Kreisz now that the council has rediscovered the potential benefits of twinning.

    Chernobyl or Hiroshima are the most obvious twins.

    I echo your support, and also agree that Pol Wong enabling this has done the town a great favour. He instructs in the martial art Shaolin Kung Fu which has helped many children and adults in the Wrexham area.

    Don’t we already have enough beggars on the streets of Wrexham?

    No point. Half of Poland now live in Wrexham.

    Twinning only benefits the Councillors and ranking officials who get free holidays out of it.

    Does anyone else remember Wrexham’s attempt to twin with Trinidad & Tobago when Dennis Lawrence and Carlos Carlos Edwards came to play for us?
