gibsons recent outburst against the jewish nation,has got him in bigggg trouble. he knows it, and is on his hands and knees begging forgiveness.
his film braveheart however, so historically innacurate, after showings in scotland led to an upsurge in anti english c**p.i aint going to hold my breath for any appology to the english, cos we dont lose our tempers...just not cricket you know.the scots tourist board report a drop in the english bookings this yeay. (i wonder why)

fishyeee,dont lose it mate,youve lost the argument when that happens
as a point of interest fishy, i sailed out of peterhead for a number of years.so i am well versed with the scotish psyche.as an after thought, my grandma was a scot from oban.this conversation ENGLISH-SCOTS is about the bigots up there, not the race as a whole.enjoy your haggis pie eater.si thi.

If anyone living in Wigan wants scenery you dont have to go any further than Belmont and Rivington, its beautiful there and only 8 miles from Wigan.

Wasn't this thread originally about Mel Gibson,half yankee,half Aussie? Not one of my favourite personalities,though over here they claim him as one of their own but like a lot of others he says he loves Australia,lives in the US and only visits when promoting their latest film or recording. As for scenery,you're right cab Rivington is nice,it was one the first places my wife and I re- visited in '96,we have a similar landscape where we live only on a bigger scale.Sad to say a vast area was destroyed in the January bushfires of 2003 but it is slowly recovering.

Agree with cab75.
Belmont and Rivington are very beautiful.
I visit both often.
Oh' and on the Wigan side of Rivington near Blackrod there's a small village called Little Scotland.
