    Let's hope it comes to fruition.

    Wasn't it Merthyr that had grand plans to have film production studios located there, many years ago?

    What Merthyr needs is a couple of big factories.

    I run regularly through the Iron Works and always wondered why they haven't done anything with it when so much money has been wasted elsewhere? Great to see some vision finally being shown.

    It did take them though over 20 years for them to get Trago Mills open. I'm not confident I'll see this in my lifetime.

    The problem with locating big factories is the lack of proper infrastructure to get raw materials in and finshed articles out, quickly safely and efficiently.
    Until that is sorted it won't happen.

    The days of new large factories in the UK is long gone unless they are heavily automated.

    What I meant, is some decent mass employment.

    The current council leader who usually showers himself in the limelight of any good news stories is currently suspended and must be hoping the May council elections are postponed.

    Nothing like using your position to stop a housing support project for care kids because they’re too near your house.

    Yep.

    I don't know anything about his current plight but he did a good job in tracking down the real killer , you can't fault that and it doesn't put right what went wrong but there you go

    In his defence Luther Lane is an odd place to house the kids. It’s a middle class area off the beaten track, with a mainly middle aged / elderly demographic and not really close to any amenities.

    There was also murmerings it was to be used to house young offenders released from prison.

    The point is the council leader didn’t declare he lived on Luther Lane and remove himself from the meeting. Actually emailing the director of social services saying the housing project shouldn’t be located there was akin to a murderer waving around a bloodied knife shouting, “I got the ****er!”

    We can’t have prison leavers in Luther Lane, let’s ram them up the Gurnos.

    Yes. Got slaughtered on Twitter and refused to publish her statement on the platform.

    A couple of hours later she was telling all and sundry about how much weight she had lost through her diet.

    Perhaps she’d voted against feeding herself too?

    I’m not a fan.

    Employs her husband on 37 hour a week with our money. I’m sure the job was advertised, interviewed and appointment made all very fairly and transparent.

    We should bin this off to the politics thread
