BULLYING on Facebook certainly seems to be on the increase in the Leigh area, some of it now done by well-known figures in the community.

I think these people wish to control the local and national press and do not wish for free speech to prevail in our town.

Trolls are popping up everywhere. I myself have suffered nasty attacks due to my luck in having my views published a number of times.

Recently I have felt forced to delete posts by all those I consider to be controlling bullies.
