Have you lot forgotten what it is like to be at a certain age in teenage life, when you are too old to go to church or community led activities and too young to be allowed into pubs. So all you can do is to hang around having a smoke a natter and watching the talent go by. I was a teenager in the 1960's and did just the same as these are doing, teenagers did the same before then and teenagers will still be doing it in the future, its part of life and growing up.

They are still a sad lot. My mates and I meet most days on the bridge in Haigh Hall. If we looked as miserable as that lot , we would finish up in cut. Average age 70.

Comment by: Kieran on 19th October 2008 at 13:54

(We shouldn’t complain about others if we are as bad as they are)if that is what you where trying to say. Then as i said all teenagers arent the same at all
