  Comments Please, Please, Please stop telling everyone that I once lived in Wigan, it's awfully embarassing and they all poke fun at me up here you know ! And I turn over in my grave whenever I hear anyone say 'It's Turned Out Nice' ! Anyway, I was thinking of haunting Wigan Little Theatre for a laugh but I think I'll haunt the council chambers instead because I'll fit in there, being dead an' all that.

  Comments I have relatives near to Wigan. I love looking into history and find modern history very educational. However, I must say that the Wigan people who continue to try writing in a Lancashire accent and talking about pies all the time are only fuelling the ideas of the media who still refer to Wigan people as ' Backward Villagers '. Why, on my last visit to Wigan I followed a car with a sticker in the back window proclaiming that it's occupants, being Wiganers, actually lived in Mud Huts ! I ask you, is this a way to promote the area in which you live ? I also passed the grotesque, monstrosity of ' modern art ' which has been erected on the approach roundabout off the M6. On questioning my uncle on this he informed me that it represents the ' Spirit of Wigan '! My God ! That will give the visiting football fans something to smile about, no doubt.
