Sex shops and lap dancing clubs. Why can't they discuss something more important such as bin collections or dog fouling?

This town councils collective of imbeciles are inept at dealing with proper issues. How any of them manage to get out of bed of a morning is beyond me.

The town centre is an utter disgrace, the wider town is a disgrace, the incumbents trying to run the place are a disgrace. They have never had any idea of what they are supposed to do, and the sooner they are back-hoofed clean out of office, the better.

I'll reply to that cllr who is wondering what they will do if parents object to flag and anthem- quite simple, you tell them to get a life because you one live in Britain and you're allowed to put your flag up, two we are in Britain and you're allowed to sing the anthem. If someone doesn't like it then they can quite easily move to a different country.
Let's put an end to that rubbish about offending anyone.

Bolton is meant to have 60 councillors and as this is the last meet before the elections then why are 11 of the councillors absent?

Which part of town do you live in atlas because the streets around here are like a third rate country. The bin men use every excuse they can not to empty a bin what they think happens after they don`t care, because after perhaps a couple of weeks and a few complaints and when the bins have been overturned by some mindless morons they send another load of men to clean the mess up.
I have complained many times to the council but they just listen give you some crap about investigating and then nothing happens. Perhaps this is the councils way of protecting jobs, one lot of workers leave a mess then another clean it up. Perhaps councillors could discuss something like this at there next meeting or would that require doing the job they were elected to do

Sick of complaining

Now "Thumbs Down" to this if you want but one thing is bugging me more than anything else in this article ...

"Elaine O'Flynn" Buildings do not fly the "Union Jack Flag" ... ships do. Anything that is on land Flies the "Union Flag"
Call me petty but if you're going to talk about the flag please at least get it right!
