    There isn't mas unemployment, though!!!! The UK has record number of people working, more than at any other time in British history. Gangs, what gangs - I was in town both yesterday and today and there were no gangs. I was, unfortunately, in town on Friday night and still there were no gangs! Therefore I'd like to see where you see these gangs!
    Series 1 was a belter, and series 2 should be also. Looking forward to it airing again. We have more people in employment than ever before, and that is due to ONE REASON only. The UK has NEVER HAD this many people in it since the year dot. I'm sick of hearing this load of crap from the present load of lying incumbents. In the last ten years alone, the populous of London has grown by almost two million (BBC Panorama figures from two weeks ago) and the rest of the nation is overflowing to the gills. Don't believe all the dodgy government propaganda about less people being unemployed. They massage the figures thus not counting anyone who has claimed Job Seekers allowance for over six months. If you can't see the gangs roaming around all areas of Bolton then I seriously suggest you have your 'mince pies' tested, and soon!
    I didn't say that there were less unemployed but I did say the there are more in work now than what there has ever been.

    Why do you think they have raised the school leaving age limit to 17, and same next school year to 18?

    In fact the population of London has risen by almost 4 million but most of those now living in London are either oligarchs with enough money to have their own country or many have moved south because of the jobs because that's were the jobs are nowadays!! Plus self-employed and zero-hour contracts are not counted and those who don't actually claim jobseekers allowance or those who have been refused!!!!

    As for gangs there aren't that many in Bolton and its not as bad as your are making out. There have always been gangs in town- and I have lived here for over 40 years (except for a 7 year gap overseas) but even I used to hang around a "gang" with school mates up to the age of about 23 or 24 - so its nothing new and definitely nothing to worry about in 99% of cases!"

HOLLYWOOD stars Cillian Murphy and Tom Hardy were in Bolton town centre filiming scenes for a BBC period drama.

The British pair, who have previously appeared together in blockbusters Inception and The Dark Knight Rises, were filming scenes for the second series of Peaky Blinders.

BBC cameras were rolling in Le Mans Crescent, behind Bolton Town Hall, today.

A BBC source said the section of road had been chosen as it “resembles a London street”.

The road was cordoned off, with vintage cars parked on the side and male cast members wearing caps and carrying umbrellas.

Peaky Blinders is a gangster family epic set in Birmingham in 1919.

It depicts a gang who sew razor blades into the peaks of their caps to blind people.

Murphy returns to the show as lead character Tommy Shelby, while Hardy is joining the show for the first time for the coming series.
