I think the culling of badgers is the least of the council's priorities don't you think the building of the super mosque is not more important as the people of Bolton don't want it. There are tooany already and the traffic problems will be worst than what they are now.

Says it's time for the council to speak as one voice . "We're sick of it... Let's make sure it's a problem of today and not of tomorrow"

7:27pm

Cllr Cox now asking about littering. He says he's met constituents who are asking for moe bins, more signage and more resources, to address a problem that irritates everyone

Actually the council's unsightly overgrown verges trap litter and create a bigger litter problem and danger to wildlife.

The council need to start cutting grass and keeping down the weeds ans tree saplings before the problem of overgrown areas become a health and safety risk, a haven for vermin and an even more expensive cutting and clean up job.

Actually I saw a few tactical voting schemes happening in certain wards, and I would say there were a lot of illegal false accusations pointed towards a non-racist UKIP.

So legalities were tossed out of the window in favor of bolstering a Fakebor, sorry Liebore, oops sorry Labour vote.

Regarding badger culls around Bolton, not many farms have cows now, they are mainly sheep or have been turned and used for horse riding, grazing and stabling puposes , especially around the Smithills moor area.
