LOL, pretentious people from Leigh make me laugh, it can’t possibly be someone from Leigh that did this, it has to be Canvey, Basildon or Southend Scum, no one from Leigh even owns a knife!
Jokers, it is exactly that type of attitude that is wrong with middle class people, they think there so much better than everybody else, with no real insight to the real life world.
I personally know some right scum bags in Leigh who would sell their own mum to get a hit! Leigh is a drug den for self-important people who think too highly of themselves! The house prices are ridiculous, the amount of fat oaf’s out on a Friday night drinking 15 pints shoving everything they can up their nose, people need to get a grip, it’s probably safer hanging outside the Kursaal on a Friday night!

The "fat oafs" you speak of "shovelling everything they can up their noses" will not be local people. Local people who have lived in Leigh all their lives (and I'm talking young - 30-40) abhor this kind of behaviour from Towie-type daytripper wannabes who come to the Broadway because they think it makes them look upmarket, when in fact they bring down the whole reputation of what once was a respectable area. They are bringing down our house prices too!

Funny - I lived in Leigh for 12 years. Most of the people I knew, went to school in Leigh and they either sold drugs or took them. I even knew of some old lady who turned her spare bedroom into a cannabis factory and she was born and bred in Leigh.
