I've never, ever, met anybody as 'council-minded' as Wiganers (and faux Wiganers!). Borough mad they are!!
But, it's possible, nay, probable, that they are council dependent? and the council must occupy a large part of a Wiganer's life.
I must say, that Wigan council are very obsessive about themselves!
They are like children, writing their name all over the place, like graffiti. Lollipop ladies even have Wigan council written on their backs!
