  Comments Only one thing wrong with the people who knock WIGAN, they are breathing!! anyway who are johnny vegas and brad pitt? from their comments, idiots who know very little of the true WIGAN. The idiot who thinks Dave Whelan comes from scruffy old Bradford is as thick as a WIGAN door stop. He was born in the same street as me, in poolstock, the best part of the best town in the world.

  Comments a few weeks ago you could get into wigan via poolstock lane/poolstock, no problem. can anybody prove the sense in putting that road up, over the canal and then down again? it is totally pointless and is creating traffic congestion. these planners we've got are wasting money on stupid projects that are not needed. in the future no-one will want to come to wigan and it will become a ghosttown. the sooner things are changed the better.

  Comments One finds the common people of Wigan so very underdeveloped in their manners and speech. One is sometimes ashamed to be associated with the District. When one looks down ones nose, one finds the town dirty, smelly and not to ones liking.

  Comments Hey Hank,
I found your comment to me very entertaining. One would think that an intelligent opinion would be based on personal expericence. Am I to assume that you have been to Wigan yourself? I find this very unlikely. I, however have been to New Jersey and based on that experience it makes your comment all the more amusing. Wigan is filled with loving and friendly people always willing to help you. New Jersey, well dare I say "Hell Hole"? is filled with people out to get what they want no matter what the cost or who they hurt. Your streets are disgusting and dirty and the women have far too much hairspray in their hair. May I offer you a suggestion Mr. Hank Burgess Snr?
Instead of talking through your rear end...perhaps you should be an example to your children. After all Super Nanny can only help you so much with your disfunctional children. I mean really, rednecks...tut! tut! I believe it is the rednecks that keep Jerry Springer's show alive. Wouldn't you agree?

  How did you find wiganworld?    I was told about the cute site.
  Comments Hi all you folks in Wigan in England* My parents parents originate from your town. I guess I may have many relatives over there still. When I looked up about your place my wife cried "Wow, Hanky, you never told me you were descended from those Hillbillies". How we all laughed ! The kids have had us vow that we won't ever tell their college friends !

  Comments Zoe, the shops in the new arcade will be the shops that are already in Wigan and are already in every other town in the north west. You should be asking "What will become of the shops that are already in Wigan when the shops that are already in Wigan move to the new arcade"? The answer is that they'll either become shops selling worthless crap, or they'll all have their windows blanked out with shoe whitening. Zoe, come to St.Helens, enjoy easy access, park cheaply and see a nice selection of shops selling a good variety of items. Or go to Bolton, Warrington, etc. etc. etc.

  Comments Last week I was in the local papershop when an 'owd pit mon' about 90 years old shuffled in. He went straight to the front of the queue and said to the assistant, " Ast geet any Traaaaycle Toffee ?". The assistant said, " Bonfire Toffee Sir ? Yes, we have ", and promptly put a packet in front of him. What happened next was hilarious. At the top of his voice he shouted, " N'ow, I don't w'ant bloody 'Bonfire' Toffee, I w'ant bloody 'Traaaaycle' Toffee, like theres aaluuurs bin !". As he walked out through the shop door, he mumbled, " An nowheres geet me any !". I wonder if he found what he wanted ?

  How did you find wiganworld?    Heard about it ' in the Village'.
  Comments Come on Chaps, what, fairs fair and all that. But, of course, anyone, whether 'scouse' or otherwise must be 'posh' to be living in 'The Village', what. Tally-Hoooooooooo ! Oh, and yes, Wigan is just down the road, we sometimes send 'Jeeves' down there with a few scraps for the locals.
