After accidentally deleting this post, and retrieving it thanks to help from readers, I have now been asked to take it down by the councillor involved, who is being pressured by Wrecsam council. What follows is entirely mine.

The removed post concerned a senior officer of the council, one Trevor Coxon, a native of Stoke-on-Trent, the Brexit/UKIP capital of England, who used the Manchester terrorist attack as an excuse to remove Y Ddraig Goch, the Welsh flag, from Wrecsam Guildhall, arguing that the Manchester attack was “not exclusively a Welsh commemoration”.

He did it because he is a BritNat, who would rather not be reminded that he’s in our country, not his own. Unfortunately we have too many with his mindset among us.

Here’s an example of what a colonialist bigot Coxon is, information that came in a comment: “I remember Coxon at a planning committee meeting about the National Trust’s application to build 300 houses on their donated land in Rhostyllen. We put forward the Wrecsam council policy to him that stated developments should not dilute the Welsh identity of an area. (By the way the proposed houses were already being advertised and advertised as being in ‘Rhostyllen, Cheshire’!) His response was that Rhostyllen is not Welsh!”

In addition to being a BritNat bigot Coxon and his colleagues are now bullying a woman. What a bunch of shites!

You have been brought to my attention, Coxon, and from now on I shall be watching and listening, and I have sources everywhere. If I write about you again it will not be taken down.

End (for now)

    Might be worth asking your hosting provider (sccambria) to install rsnapshot and configure it to backup your wordpress data automatically. Four-hourly/daily/weekly/monthly cycles work great for us. Should take <10 minutes to install and configure, and as it uses rsync under-the-hood it is very efficient – it effectively only takes space for changes over the originals.

    An alternative, but slow, recovery method (well done AM) would have included sending £10 to make a SAR under the 1998 DPA from one of the many "friendly" organisations that monitor and appreciate your output 😉

      Big Gee has suggested something of the kind, a WP plugin. He may be referring to what I already have installed, BackWPup, is this what you’re referring to?

      As I say, it’s installed, and it’s working, but when I downloaded the latest backup last night I was confronted by a lot of zipped files that made no sense. I was looking for something easy, like a file marked ‘Posts’ or something. BackWPup has been installed for a long time and I let it get on with what it does, just checking occasionally to make sure it’s working.

      You think there might be organisations monitoring my output that don’t agree with what I write? Maybe they should devote more of their attention to those intent on murder and mayhem.

        Most of the ‘tech- fog’ has been lifted for you in the e-mail that I’ve just sent to you.

        If you need more help you know where I am

        rsnapshot/rsync work at a much “lower level” that the WP plugin, but you’d need help from your hosting provider to recover a file. Sounds like BackWPup does what you’re after but I’ve not run WP so can’t help there. Disaster recovery is one of those things that needs practice away from the stress of an ongoing disaster, it’s too late finding out after the event that a critical config/data file is missing from what one thought was routinely being stored.

          This was not a ‘natural (technical) disaster’ but an accidental site admin misoperation (easily done, human error, one wrong click and that’s it) .

          A post was permanently deleted from the site’s MySQL data base. Had a DB backup been available that had been created between the time the post was published and when the misoperation took place the DB could have been restored with marginal loss of comments. As it happened that was not the case.

          The post had been put in the ‘trash’ folder of WP by the site owner. Instead of restoring the post & it’s comments from the ‘trash’ folder, the ‘permanently delete’ link was clicked accidentally. This resulted in a command to the server to delete that information from the DB. No corrupted config/data files, or data base tables etc. Auto DB backup is not a practical solution on the server side for this site as the site owner does not have FTP access to the server’s root directory.

          Jac has been advised re. future housekeeping habits and regular backups via a plugin designed for the job.

          Case closed. Let’s forget the water that’s gone under the bridge and get back to posting and commenting – “move along – nothing to see here – everything is working as normal”.

    Is that what you describe being pissed on Argie red?

      How dare you suggest that alcohol may have played a part!! Actually, I was stone-cold sober, I wouldn’t have attempted anything tricky like that after a few snorts.

        Point taken Daffy!

        Right I’m off to bed after a night of political entertainment (every time it happens – I promise myself I won’t do it and then I do!).

    no blog about General Election results Jac – celebrations here! Was keen to read your take.

      There will be something out later today or early tomorrow.

        wouldn’t bother spending too much time analysing that mess – most parties made a mess of things, focussing on the wrong areas, or worse still, developing a policy and failing to communicate the thing clearly which to me is a symptom of not really knowing what they wanted to do !

        Good for Plaid that they won Ceredigion ( by a small margin ! ) but elsewhere they didn’t really strike a chord. I thought they intended having Bryant’s guts for garters but it went down the pan with a lot of others. It seems that the party machine was wheeled out far more vigorously this time by Labour and let’s not forget that Corbyn’s placid easy going manner with the odd spark of rhetoric/rant was far more effective across the UK than the facial contortions of the witch May and the meaningless repetition of a set of asinine mantras. If UK Gov fails to hold its collective trousers up we could have a replay later in the year which might generate yet another hung parliament. Someone said that we risk becoming like Italy used to be – well at least they had the weather !.

          P.S -Can’t see Brexit happening with this lot steering it. If the fragile “majority” can’t quickly sort an open border for N.Ireland then DUP wii walk away. Sinn Fein in meantime won’t trust an Anglo government cosying up to the Orange order so openly ( although ALL Anglo Brit regimes have found it easy to do so in private ) .

          And the food . . . and the wine.

            being a completely abstinent soul I would not know about such things !!!!! Oh, I’m also brushing up my capacity for extreme Presbyterian posturing – which could get me a short term number with this crazy government. Knew that it would come in handy one day !.

Ok, you’ve read what I think, now what do you have to say?
