What a load of cobblers this wigan pride! !!


Comment by Al on 18th August 2016 at 08:18
I agree, load of cobblers. A right bunch of the usual muppets believing anything, and standing beside something they think is representing Wigan when it's got nothing to do with the place. I bet they're the ones that lapp up all the corrupt governments and puppet politicians, etc. The colours on the face looks like something out of Eyes Wide Shut.


Comment by wiganer on 18th August 2016 at 09:24
How can people show pride on public display of something I find so obnoxious, and beyond belief.


Comment by straight person and proud on 18th August 2016 at 10:11
OBNOXIOUS IS THE ONLY WAY I CAN DESCRIBE THIS BLOT ON OUR LANDSCAPE.WHAT PRIDE DOES WIGAN NEED IN THIS BUNCH OF MORONS.


Comment by david on 18th August 2016 at 12:01
I left Wigan 40 years ago; after reading these intolerant comments I'm not sorry that I did.


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 18th August 2016 at 12:49
david - it just highlights why we need events like this.


Comment by Hugh Wilson on 18th August 2016 at 13:07
There seems to be a great deal of intolerance and bigotry in Wigan these days.


Comment by Neil Cain on 18th August 2016 at 13:21
Nothing to do with being intolerant This is making Wigan an eyesore. Look at that hideous sign over the Grand Arcade. About time the voice of ordinary folk was heard.I bet if I wanted to stick large circular bright coloured discs on the pavement...as outside Barclays..I wouldn't be allowed.


Comment by Allan on 18th August 2016 at 14:34
I think you are all missing the point of the face it is a piece of art and the whole idea of art is to get you to think which it has.


Comment by Lynne Brown on 18th August 2016 at 18:07
I like it. The town is forward -thinking. Nowt wrong with that!


Comment by Brian Turner on 18th August 2016 at 18:12
Brilliant. Anything that brings a bit of colour into the grey lives of a once grey town; is - more than welcome. Cloth caps off chaps. Roll on the 21st Century!

It didn't cost the folk of Wigan a penny. Yet it helped put Wigan on the "art" map. Something that was sadly lacking.


Comment by Phil T on 18th August 2016 at 18:27
I attended this event and thought it was great. Young people who are so often criticised have got together and managed to organise a fun and inclusive day which also promoted the LGBT community.
I can't for the life of me understand anyone who would consider this to reflect negatively on Wigan.


Comment by owd bob on 18th August 2016 at 18:39
Oh what a Gay day !


Comment by Alan on 18th August 2016 at 22:09
We enlightened Wiganers certainly don't take any pride in bigots like you Wiganer and straight person and proud


Comment by Positive Image on 18th August 2016 at 22:42
Thanks for this, Dave. I've had a naff day today and the bigoted and ignorant comments on here have cheered me up immensely!


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 18th August 2016 at 22:44
Well - after the lack of comments on Photo-a-day of late - at least I got you talking :)


Comment by Jathbee. on 18th August 2016 at 22:50
It was a great day. The young ones who organised the event have a lot to be proud of. Well done. Carry on the good work.


Comment by Mary on 19th August 2016 at 16:59
Thanks Dave, I always enjoy your pictures,
sadly, some of the comments made shows, that there is still an under current of thought , that will never move forward , come what may. I find this so sad. Is it only me who when a picture comes up , know, kind of that this is a Dave Oy?


Comment by Dave (Oy) on 19th August 2016 at 21:51
Thanks Mary :)
