Here's 5 unedited things that you can do in Bolton this weekend:

1 solve your own crime - there's plenty of it in Bolton and it's cheaper than a murder mystery at a hotel plus the cops don't give a **** apparently

2 go for a walk...on a motorway; Bolton is the world centre of this unusual sport which is far more risky than wingsuiting

3 open a drug factory in Deane - you're safe for the next 51 weeks as the cops have done their week of action now

4 don't bother with the gardening - get an illegal worker to do it for diddly squat and there's a shedful of them in Bolton. Particularly recommended for Deane residents : see point 3

5 Go owl spotting in a cat suit - action guaranteed

When I am Shopping in Farnworth at the Weekend, it's a Experience and a Half.

Some of the people I cross paths with, MUST be out on Licence from The Home Office.

Or are other Shoppers looking at me and thinking the same thing?
