Any mosque protests on this weekend? They really help to boost tourism in the borough and it is a huge positive benefit that multiculturalism brings to Bolton.

5. Go to Trafford centre, free parking. No beggars, no pound shops, no bookies, no jobs worth traffic wardens, no meth clinic, no smack rats as security chucks there sort out, car still intact upon return, ticket free! Bolton is a dump. Spend your money elsewhere. BMBC are corrupt and are an absolute disgrace. Abdul won't agree but everyone else will.
