Lexit,,, Leigh to split from Wigan

Started by: Tommy Two Stroke (8708)

Today at Prime Minister's Question's, Leigh's very own MP, the rude, and very naughty James Grundy, called for Leigh to break away from Wigan

LINK

The Prime Minister backs the idea, and is going to make it reet with the Boundary Commission

I, for one, agree wholeheartedly with this proposal, and so I hope it will be fair well, adieu and bugger off to the Lobby Goblers

I think the best they can hope for is a town council.

Yes, but it is a bloo wall constituency, so the government may have other ideas.

So if it did happen would Leigh have to change its postcode?

No Scorpion

The Post Codes were created in 1970, long before Local Government reorganisation.

Skelmersdale has a Wigan post code.
Atherton and Tyldesley have Manchester post codes.
Golborne has a Warrington post code

I think this is a political decision to try and keep Leigh Tory, Leigh people hate being part of Wigan, they are convinced they have been given the mucky end of the stick, with Wigan getting all of the money has they put it, but I think that is absolute rubbish, their man Lord Smith of Leigh effectively ran Wigan Metro from 1991 onwards until 2018, and Leigh if anything has got all of the money, wit Wigan getting the mucky end of the stick.

But even with Lexit, they will be struggling to keep Leigh Tory, because there are just too many Whupsies in Leigh, too many bitter Whupsies, it is the archetypal self pity city

If it helped to split the voting then why not go back to every town having its own council like it once was

TTS I have never been into any type of politics therefore could not say either way but its time our clowns at Wigan did something for/about Ashton On second thoughts let them stay away from Ashton because they are making(or allowing) a b**l s up of Wigan as it is with the roads and the GalleriesMaking 4 lanes into 3 at the bottom of King Street,3 lanes into 2 on Wallgate. Changing the A49 from Little Lane Island to a "B" road, All roadmaps and Sat navs now no good for this section of road

I agree, this so called Bee Network for cyclists, Ashton will be in the plans there somewhere for screwing up the roads network.

They could pedestrianise Ashton, divert the A49 through Platt Bridge instead

As regards SatNavs, they need to be connected to the internet via an account, and then they will upgrade to the latest road system.

Hello Tonker ,, Historically Pemberton used to be classed under the wigan bourough and therefore at one time they also came under the LANCASHIRE unbrella according to what i have read on google & wikipedia so you see Tonker my owd friend i have always thought of myself as a LANCASTRIAN like it or lump it ,,, GB

I would also like to add my reason's for us ( that is wigan ) breaking away from Andy Pandy's Greater Manchester and that's HE HAS DONE ABSOLUTELY BUGGER ALL FOR THE TOWNSHIP OF WIGAN .One only has to look at what is happening to one of our neighbours WARRINGTON , the investment that is pouring and generating in that town is unbelievable ,and when they will achieve " CITY " STATUS things will only get a whole lot better for them and i'm sad to say i think WIGAN IS BEING NEGLECTED AND BADLY TREATED , oh one might say the clown council are going to renovate our town centre with all that crap they are going do ie ( indoor bowling /crazy golf/cinema / house /flats . ALL this being done against the people's wishe's . GB

A question in Parliament from James Grundy who got away with just apologising for baring his genitals to a young lady in a pub.
In my opinion he should be in Strangeways and not Westminster!!

I agree Fossil. I wouldn't let him within a mile of my female family members, he's a creepy git.
