You totally ignored my tips on resolutions last year – and the year before that – and the year before that. According to Freedom House and World Population Review, the number of free countries has decreased between 2005 and 2021. The number of ‘partly free’ has increased over the same period, as has also ‘not free’. It is good to see Ireland listed in the top ten of free countries. ‘Old Moore’ forecasts a recession for next year … a safe enough prediction, I would say: But Moore goes further; ‘This year will mark the end of buying ‘stuff’.1 month ago The Leader
Ralph Hasenhuttl will resist the temptation to throw Southampton youngster Romeo Lavia straight back into the fold for Saturday’s fixture at Crystal Palace after his return from injury. “Romeo today was for the first time back in the (training) session,” Hasenhuttl told reporters. Defender Armel Bella-Kotchap (shoulder) is also closing in on a return but like Lavia is probably going to be forced to sit tight until next month’s home fixture with Newcastle. “These sort of experiences we have had together is the thing that keep you and holds the group together. “Together with the staff and the supporters, we are always through a season going through ups and downs, but this is what we know.3 months ago The Leader

Enterprise Zones offer tax incentives for capital investments and, for a short-period, a reduction on business rates. However, through a rigorous campaign by the business community in Deeside, led by Deeside Business Forum, the Welsh Government was persuaded to designate Deeside and six other locations in Wales as Enterprise Zones. Already billions of private sector investments have been poured into Deeside Enterprise Zone. The UK government once again announced 38 more Enterprise Zones, under the name of Investment Zones in England. We have already demonstrated that we can deliver great economic achievements through these types of Zones.3 months ago The Leader
Quote: ‘Spain’s Ministry del Interior praise the FBI tip-off, playing an essential role in the identification and neutralisation of alleged terrorist’The National Police and the Guardia Civil, detained an alleged jihadist in the Santa Eugènia neighbourhood of Girona who, it is believed, was planning to carry out a gun attack on Benidorm’s tourist beaches. The other fixation of the alleged terrorist was to attack Moroccan citizens in Spain, who he criticised for their westernisation, although the specific plans have not yet been disclosed. As reported by authorities the arrested man was also very fond of watching the execution of jihadist attacks in Europe. The same day he was arrested, he searched for how to carry out stabbings and attacks with bladed weapons, revealed by the Ministry del Interior. This ‘lone wolf’ was also familiar with videos of stabbings in US prisons or jihadist stabbing attacks in London and Tunis.3 days ago The Leader
FRIENDS and colleagues of a Wrexham man will be walking from Manchester to Hawarden in a bid to raise funds for vital treatment in Europe.

THERE was more heartbreak for success-starved supporters but Wrexham head into 2023 in a brilliant position to finally deliver the promotion everyone craves. However, Wrexham weren’t done and wins against Weymouth (6-1) and Southend (1-0) kept the title dream alive going into May. Elliot Lee - one of the summer signings - was brought on off the bench as the Reds came from behind to beat Eastleigh 2-1 on the opening day. Wrexham came from behind to win 2-1 at Oldham but a second defeat arrived in the top of the table clash at Notts County who won 1-0.
