    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!
    Only because of the EU the 'mass' employment figure are at there highest. It is a false statistic, of which many are in part-time employment on shylock wages.

    If you wish to see gangs you should visit Daubhill, Halliwell, Tonge Moor, Deane and Gilnow - if you would care to walk through one of the parks late on. They are quite illusive. A gang does not necessarily mean huge numbers. Gangs lurk, they (believe it or not) drive around in nice cars and hang around in houses these days and rarely spill out onto the streets except until the small hours in rather diminutive numbers robbing houses and drug dealing.

    Ahhh I see you are speaking of the TC... no those 'gangs' lurk in the Town Hall pi$$ing on your chips and force-feeding you horseshyte.

    On topic: Hollywood Stars - I think the BN is referring to the '666' clan... puppet tools of the entertainment industry that do not question elitist agendas... those who have questioned end up behind bars on drugs charges, alcohol related incidents or end up on the scrap heap... God I hope this happens to that Bieber kid."

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.
