    Is this not a criminal offence of misconduct in a public office?

    This is partly because the council wanted to invest any spare money on unaffordable projects—a mere £100,000 for a one-day bike race. Additionally, hosting an Esteddod in 2025, a decision that last time led to Community Councils being forced to divert their local charity grants to it, devastating some charitable organisations.

    More so, the Wrexham Gateway Project. When Synedd said no to the Gateway funding, council members became starry-eyed by celebrity and, without the possibility of scrutiny, in a secret council meeting, made a massive financial contribution to a business owned by millionaires. Possibly the quickest way out of this mess is to cancel the Gateway Project!

    I’m already waiting for the abuse for daring to question the funding of the favoured project and the immediate Sainthood bestowed on the two Saviours of the ‘city’!

    JayneJ, so if you are working in the hospital you’ve got a secure job and a cushy NHS pension in the future. Good for you! Would you like a medal?

    We won’t all be in it together when the pandemic is over. The older generation will still want care subsidised to protect their savings or to avoid selling their house. They will protest if their treble lock pensions, winter fuel allowance, free bus passes, tv licenses, and swimming are challenged. It is a generation that lived beyond its means by paying insufficient taxes to pay for the provisions it expected. However, rather than realise the reality of the economic situation the ‘selfish’ young are now expected to fund it through taxes.

    However, the selfish young will get their pensions later, if at all, for lower benefits. They will never get all the other freebies. Some will never own a home. Possibly the selfish old ought to give the younger generation more respect as they are people supporting their current lifestyle. To do that the young need to carry on living, working and that includes opening the whole economy.

    Use your critical evaluation skill rather than listen to politicians participating in a moral panic. In the list of causes of death the Government’s figures still have COVID as only the 24th likely reason for death this autumn. Statistically, this is more people’s last Christmas due to other causes of death. Is it morally right to keep the higher proportion of those who will die next year from enjoying their last Christmas due to other reasons than the far fewer elderly who will die of COVID?

    Too many people on here are too short sighted. Shall we tell thousands of babies, children and youngsters, we know this might be your last Christmas. However, sorry but you can’t experience your last Christmas as you wanted. Instead we must save someone’s granny! Is granny that selfish?

    Zinger, people will usually say the right thing to others. However, what they say and do are frequently very different. It is the same problem that effects most opinion polls on many issues.

    The Mayor represents the Crown? No, he does not, it is the Lord Lieutenant’s role to represent the Queen at events.

    JaneJ, the constant prophet of doom a little like Drakeford who thinks they have the moral high ground and speaks for us all!

    In your little world, your perspective might suit you and your family. So far from your everyday posts it is clear the only thing that you are worried about are the illness. You do not give a damn about the other aspects of it, and I expect they don’t worry you – white, middle-class, nice salary and able to work from home or on a cushy pension by any chance?

    Many people tonight will be furious at the greater impact on their life than the extremely small chance of serious illness and death. Please do not try to spread the emotional pleas of the politicians. Let us be real, normally you will not give a damn about my or my families health, it is more about if it will make you family ill.

    It is about time people rebelled against this nonsense. The Government and police know it only takes a few hundred people to ignore the law and they will be unable to cope. Hopefully, hundreds of thousands of people will now ignore the law and make the Government aware of the public’s feelings. On other news forums the majority now oppose the Government’s decisions. Your view and most of the participants in the small insular bubble on this forum are in the minority!

    MP1953 – I fully agree with your comments. When on holiday in France (pre-covid), I have noticed that all of the public car parks, with the exceptions of cities, are free of charge. France does have ‘out-of-town’ stores and supermarkets, but their towns seem busier and vibrant. It does seem the way forward for Wrexham.

    ….because it is meant to attract extra people to town rather than subsidise office workers? It doesn’t take a genius to understand the spirit of the scheme and what it is being abused!

    Ideally all of the Waterworld and library car park would be short stay. In most towns the long stay car parks are typically out of the centre… lazy office workers in Wrexham?

    I don’t know how the pay and display machines work.
    However, possibly getting a free ticket from the machine that expires after 2 hours might work. What needs to be avoided is office workers moving their cars at lunchtime to get a further half day of free.

    At the moment even the Waterways short stay Car park is being used without restrictions which doesn’t help the situation.
