  5. Fylde Road Chippy
    Started by justbecause 21/08/2018

    Called in to the chippy last night, couldn’t believe that they charge £1.95 for a regular portion of chips, and £2.70 for a ‘large’ portion, which in reality is only the same as regular portions at other chippy’s in the town, and, they weren’t all that good, full of ‘eyes’, wasted more than we ate.

    It seems that the Labour Government in 2002 knew about the Rotherham grooming gangs and chose to do absolutely nothing about them.
