Also correct it's Meat and Prata pies not the PC, Potato and Miniscule Meat Pies beloved of the EU.
And yes john knows why Wigineers are called Piemen, now't do with decent good honest working men's grub.

'Southern'?????
You insulting sweaty sock cnut!!!

I live close.....too close to Wigan so I know only too well how the pie eaters fit to type....."Ist tha cummin arrt t play?"

They are alright but currently being forced to accept our valued 'immigrunts' after 500 years.
They were divested of government grants for the last 10-15 years because they had the lowest % ethnic population in the UK so now they are the dumping ground for every African wanting in to the UK.
Sad really...from not seeing an ethnic 'chap' 10 years ago, to black gang wars now makes your mind up really.

Those poor buggers. They just escape the Sudan and they end up in Wigin. They just can't get a break. Still could be worse, they could have got the wrong bus and ended up in St Helens.

I knew there was a reason I left.

For years, Wigan's main problem was being too close to Skem.

It must be really scary at night, now, with all them darkies loitering in the back ginnels. Lets hope they're happy ones that grin a lot.

Waterfields do a nice pie and, used to love it when cornish pasties was 69p they would say "69" to which i say "yes please" :)
some you wiginers will know wterfields and Pimbletts pies.

used to be a saying round my part "You may as well be dead and living in Wigin"

Mr Callaghan, who owns the venue, Harry's Bar, said that entries from across the world are invited for the contest on December 13.
Such a prestigious venue too, the old 'Clarence'.

Most of the regulars in there could polish off 4 pints in 3 minutes, never mind pies :D

Poole's Pies all the way Gents. Forget your Waterfields or Pimblett's. They're just fodder for those poor unfortunates who reside in lesser conurbations within the Metropolitain Area.

Mind you, Greenhalgh's aren't bad :wink:

I live perilously close to Wigin (Leigh) reminds me of the old gag about Wigan Rugby Club putting a advert in the paper offering "A pie, a pint and a woman for a quid" and the switchboard being inundated with calls asking what kind of pie it was.
