You're are welcome, WiganHistoryPod Mon!

Here's a word of advice - don't believe ANYTHING either the Museum of Wigan Life or the Wigan Archaeological Society tell you. Most of what they claim is rubbish, and I've told them so!

Kindly pass on my regards to the Museum of Wigan Life and tell them they can't have my Peter Kane fight programs, regardless of what they want to give me for them!

Also, tell the Wigan Archaeological Society that they don't know their arse from their elbow when it comes to archaeology. "maybe we don't know as much as we'd like to, but it's nice to speculate" is a pathetic statement when they are publishing stuff which is wrong and the public believes it. They are an amateur set-up, trying to be clever.

On a final note, don't get the wrong impression of me.
Wigan is an ancient town, with loads of history. Why, then, do people have to recite history about other towns, whose only link to Wigan is the Local Government Act 1972?
