WHAT BIG TEETH YOU HAVE! Bigger, sharper teeth than our ramblings in the on-line Oldham Evening Chronicle, which are being strangled by ever increasing censorship or moderation as they call it. We, the people of this town have no collective public voice to shout on our behalf, willing to question and challenge the lunacy visited upon us by the numpties in The Tower Of Babble, various thieving MPs, the legions of PC police at GMP, PAT'S, PACT'S, academy lovers, transport 'experts', vastly overpaid Council Officers from Charlie Chuckles downward, quangoes, placemen, do-gooders, do-badders, tree huggers, Brussels and Alcock! You get the idea? We intend to remedy this via the revamped Pigsticker. Now with added fibre. If any of you out there want to join us in restoring the town to it's former pleasant aspect, please feel free to submit articles. No moderation on this site!

Here we go again!

 Video game retailer 'Game" has gone bust! Every local outlet of this large chain is to close. Yet more brown paper windows in Spindles! Yet more people on the dole! 276 stores to close immediately 2,104 more unemployed. This will leave 333 stores still open and employing 2814 workers. Wanna bet how long they will last?

Yet another nail in the Spindles coffin.  Or perhaps an opportunity for some astute entrepreneur to step in and open a brand new, much needed, Jewellery Store/ Pawnbrokers / Pound Cosmos.

It won't take much to topple the whole house of cards, especially if another important cornerstone, such as Debenhams were to pull out.

Do the elected cock-polishers in the Tower of Babble care?  It appears not. They are obsessed with massaging their egos and pay checks with grandiose pie-in-the-sky plans for the outlying districts (only the Lie-bour held ones of course). Have you noticed the abandonment of the much vaunted 'belt- tightening' budgets with painful cuts and  huge savings?  Remember last year's talk of 'over 400 redundancies in the new year?

Any of it come to pass yet? Nope! Do you think it will? With elections coming up!!! Not a fucking chance! What do we get almost every day? New initiatives - proposed new deals with developers - consultations  nonsultations with  locals to see what they would like, as opposed to what they are going to get, which is nowt. We are following the PFI path to destruction well worn by that criminal fucktard, the one-eyed snot gobbler, Gordon 'where has he disappeared to' Brown. Evey PFI 'initiative' ends up as a millstone around our necks as we struggle for years to pay some outside rip-off artists for providing services we should be capable of providing a lot cheaper. PFI's exist because we have no money to provide these services, so we in effect borrow cash from these 'saviours' at usurious rates of interest. The providers get rich and we sink further into the shite!

Since the start of the year,  Little Jimmy Pudden-Face's band of creeps, misfits and downright barm-pots have done nothing but promise us everything we desire. We're gonna 'spend, spend, spend,' they tell us. No they're not, not, not.  They have no cash, cash, cash!  After the election you will discover the value of Lie-bour promises!

Never mind! We've got the arrival of Metro-Shite to look forward to.   I think - 'Appen -Haven't we?
We've had a reet good idea about that. Seeing as how the 'Richard Knowless Memorial Line,' to Mumps is virtually complete, why don't we say fuck-it to the branch line along Union Street through 'Chicken City?' We could throw up a bridge at Mumps and run trains all the way from Manchester to Rochdale. Mind you, we'd have to scrat about a bit to get back all the bits of Mumps station sold off by the muppets in the great clearance swindle  sale. We could stick the lines back down the Werneth Tunnels, thus freeing up a valuable green-field site on the Manchester Street roundabout. We could possibly erect a 'bijou' sports centre there with a 5Metre Olympic Style' pool and a table tennis table.

PS  Ruffyed says it would have been easier and cheaper to have concreted over the original track, bought several hundred Sinclair C5's,  (ask yer grand-dad), and let everybody do their own thing!
As for recharging them - they could have used Little Jimmy's EV emporium and charging station at Hollinwood.........but that's another story!

If you vote for the fucking wastrels again in May you will have only yourselves to blame for the hurt that's a-coming!

Have you seen all the crap about this town's contributions to the 'Londonistan' Olympics??

Apparently we have something called the  "Olympic Legacy Project,'  which has been hailed as “trailblazing” by the London Games organising committee, who of course have been nowhere near the desolate dump..

This unelected band of chair polishers and non-entities, call themselves, 'The One Future Group.' There is nothing like a catchy name to inspire folks - and this IS nothing like a catchy name.  They claim to be about to improve the lives of Oldhamers by securing sporting, social and economic benefit across the borough. This is the same borough that has just announced the closure of four sports venues to be replaced by two venues, half the size.

We are told that - " the current contract of Oldham Community Leisure (OCL), which runs the borough’s sports and leisure facilities on behalf of the council, expires in one years time. This will prompt a shrinking leisure stock to accommodate the future operating contract" — can anyone explain this non sequitur ? Does this mean that the tossers at OCL are to be allowed to fuck over all our sports facilities for the remaining three and a half years 'til the town finally closes for good? What will the future operating contract cover? When were OCL awarded it? Did it go out to tender? What will it cover, the one remaining seven metre 'Olympic Style' pool, a wall you can kick a ball against and of course the All Weather Synchronised Swimming Hole  Centre and water polo field at Churchill Fields  The Ken Hulme Memorial Lido!

 We are told that the total value of Oldham’s Olympic contracts is £3.6 million. What contracts are these? Would someone like to enlighten us as to what we have contracted for?  What benefits can we expect to receive? If there were net profits of 20% on the total this would amount to about £3.47½p each. What would you spend yours on Folks? It wouldn't even buy a cinema ticket, if we had a fucking cinema, that is!

 Oldham has already hosted a leg of the Halfords Tour Series cycling races in June last year, which was watched by 300,000 people on TV and boosted the local economy by £250,000. Aaah, that's part of the legacy is it?  How many legatees in Oldham dusted off their Claude Butlers and oiled their Choppers to join that jamboree?

Now! The news you have all been waiting for! Prepare yourselves for this!! Handball has been adopted as a legacy sport in schools and community groups across Oldham. whoop!!  Not one of the traditional Oldham sports, Footy, Rugby, Cricket, Athletics maybe! Oh no! Fecking Hand fecking Ball!   A game  game, do me a fucking favour  played indoors by nerdy little pricks while they twitter like twats on their Twatfones. You can probably play it in MacDonalds while waiting for the acne ridden pillock to reheat your mystery-burger.

It gets better - The scheme has already attracted support from high-profile local names, including Manchester United’s Paul Scholes, presenter John Stapleton and “Coronation Street” actress Shobna Gulati. Well at least Scholes has run about a bit, as for the other two -  a yapper and a slapper! Trust Oldham to produce role models about as far removed from the role as it is possible to get.

Group vice chairman John Townsend, (who he?), said: “The project has been going for 12 months and it’s good to reflect on our achievements to date and count our allowances. . I’m sure that London 2012 fever will gather pace when the torch travels through Oldham on Sunday, June 24.”
 It would be more of an achievement if a stray spark from the torch set the Civic Centre afire and the blaze spread to all the worthless schemes dreamt up by the tossers inside. 

Read the timetables, the agendas, the programmes - there is nowt coming to the town. It's another smoke and mirrors job by you know who, to divert our attention from the dire circumstances we find ourselves in. It's a pity we won't have the Metrostink running. We could all haul ass down to Manchester - at least they have some genuine Olympic events planned. 

The end is approaching rapidly!!!!!!!!!!
