In Lesley Griffiths latest newsletter, she states that WCBC have identified just 10 roads that have retained the 30mph speed limit, equating to just 1% of the eligible roads in the County Borough.
Contrast this with Cardiff and Neath Port Talbot who have retained it for 5% of their roads and Swansea and Bridgend where the figure is nearer 10%.
Something is telling me that WCBC have undertaken the whole exercise in a quick fix, back of the fag packet approach rather than given it serious consideration and coming up with a well reasoned solution that would be more acceptable to more of the population of the Borough.
Rather a mixed message there AMA. What is the point of taking strike action if it doesn’t have some impact? In the private sector, it can affect profits. In the public sector it can affect services.
Reading between the lines, I think you are saying ….I’m in support of the industrial action……..as long as it doesn’t affect me!!
Every time there is a proposal for new housing developments at whichever location or size, the same people post the same old argument as to why they shouldn’t be granted permission to proceed.
It is an absolute fact that there is a dire shortage of accommodation in the County Borough (as witnessed by WCBC’s social housing figures) and the daily posts by people seeking housing in the private sector.
If I was to be cynical (which of course, I’m not) I may suggest there is a certain element of xenophobia in the negativity.
Be prepared, if the LDP is once again rejected by Councillors this week, get your typing fingers busy because there will be plenty more to come.
If the situation wasn’t so serious, it would be laughable.
What did amuse me for its sheer ridiculousness was the Council Leaders comment that democracy is losing its place in Wrexham.
Could someone please remind me when was the last time Wrexham was run democratically? It seems that for years power is vested in one or two individuals supported by a small band of hand picked acolytes.
Electric scooters that parkingmad references are widely used in Europe and are a convenient mode of transport for many.
Considering that electric bicycles are now extremely common and are regularly seen on the road network, I can see no legitimate reason why scooters should be treated differently.
Before anyone mentions the safety aspect, if they are considered to be a danger to pedestrians, so should electric bicycles be regulated and at the very least, be required to be insured.
Not my opinion Mr Thomas, it forms part of their manifesto.
What a pointless and immature gesture from our illustrious Plaid Cymru Councillors. Do they really think that their presence will be missed?
I’m sure the historic occasion will go ahead flawlessly and will be welcomed by the city’s residents.
I wonder how they’re feeling now that the latest Census figures show that there is a decline in Welsh language speakers? Not going to plan is it?December 1, 2022 at 11:05 am in reply to: Should we have a standalone Wales-wide Covid Inquiry? #227462
I think little would be achieved when broadly speaking, Wales followed the Westminster lead a week or so later.
The lessons learned from the national Covid enquiry would be equally applicable across the U.K.
One question that maybe still outstanding is why did the Welsh Government dither?
Get your thinking cap back on. On second thoughts, don’t bother.
Probably the most ridiculous, complicated idea I think I’ve ever read.November 4, 2022 at 3:20 pm in reply to: Wrexham councillors set for pay rise of almost five per cent #226378
How about introducing performance related pay for Councillors?
You do f.. all, you get paid f… all.
Money for old rope for most of them!
If you want the salary……….earn it, by putting Wrexham before your pocket.
