GB, as I was cycling passed yesterday, All the men when stood about doint nowt, I joked to them, " need a lift lads, I can do that gis a job" A nasty one said ( they are everywhere nasty people) " eff off" then a more pleasant informative nice guy, ( like me ) said, " We can't get the tarmac due to, covid, Brexit and some numpty in the planning did't order enough"
I understand that, probably a mate of Sledge

Wigan should be turned into a village. Roads round it, nothing but boutiques in the middle.

that's the one Tommy tee,
11 miles from my house and 11 minutes on average to get there, If I set off from my house to B+Q Wigan, 11 minutes later, I'm in a jam at Peters chippy or the saddle,
Sledge may have left the planning but, he learned the upcoming planners how to gridllock our town and take our council tax in big lumps,

The roads in Wigan have been in a mess for years now and people keep blaming the councillors but the same people keep voting in the same people has long as this keeps happening the £13,000 a year councillors will never alter the ever chaotic road nightmares in this town,So vote differently.
