    What is Bolton's association with the ships? Been here 34 years, yet to find a dock.

    What a spineless bunch the Tory opposition are. Why aren't they demanding the Labour Party name their non payer of council tax? The Tories have a whole host of ammunition on a variety of issue to seriously damage the arrogant Labour Party in this town but they choose to stay silent. Pathetic.

    Perhaps Cllr Wild would like to deal with the Royal Bolton Hospital and their constant harassment via phone to anyone who has an appointment with them. Despite having asked twice, verbally, to be removed from this 'service' and having written to them and received a letter back from PALS assuring me that this would not happen again I was bombarded with said automated calls all over the Bank Holiday weekend. This happens for every appointment so, for instance, if a little old lady has a podiatry appointment, a diabetic clinic appointment and an eye clinic appointment then they are pestered with calls from each of these departments. Perhaps the RBH could 'save' some money by scrapping this system and go back to the usual method of people ringing to cancel, reschedule appointments etc. if they are not going to go. Each of these calls to me was to my mobile phone and caused problems and upset as I did not know why the RBH would be ringing me in the late evening!! There is no guarantee that using this system makes more people attend these appointments.
