I used to live by that border. My house was in Wales, my son snd his chums used to play across the brook in England . ..I've got a friend who lives in a small village on the Flintshire/Denbighshire border. She's told me that she can go anywhere in Flintshire but can't go to her local shop because it is in Denbighshire.
I used to work for a company on the old Dorset/Hampshire border, where one office is in Dorset and the other is in pre 1974 Hampshire. Imagine going to work and being told that you can't go to a meeting in the other office over the road because it's in the wrong county.
The Flintshire and Denbighshire border doesn’t border onto England.
Not what wiki says:
Flintshire (Welsh: Sir y Fflint) is a county in north-east Wales, bordering the English county of Cheshire to the east, Denbighshire to the west and Wrexham County Borough to the south. It is named after the historic county of Flintshire which has notably different borders.
As we aren’t supposed to have free speech it, and don’t have it, that could make it hard to be proud of.Can anyone define the Free Speech that this country is supposed to be so proud of?
Are you standing on your head posting that?Lets put up a financial border between England and Wales as well - stop the flow of English taxpayers money at the Welsh border. See the chippy little scroats stand on their own two feet for a change
So we need to shut the border as its moving from east to west, but Wales is to the east of England... I don't understand his geography, was he an officer in a previous career??
ETA if anyone needs to see the story for free, it is here.
Youtuber Darren Grimes threatened with arrest over reporting of David Starkey's slavery comments - Press GazetteRight-wing commentator and Youtuber Darren Grimes has been threatened with arrest if he does not appear for a police interview following his interview with the historian David Starkey.www.pressgazette.co.uk
I think I would rather know who was pressuring the police to act. I'm sure someone must have complained to plod to start the sorry train of events and that someone would have some influence it seems.Seems the Police have er cancelled the interview with young Grimes and are conducting a review in to the investigation, which I think means we were found out trying to intimidate someone due to their politics.
