    Certainly is. Cheshire WAG place, McLaren dealership, etc but there are some nice places to eat, used to live a few miles away.

    Yep, Rolls Royce dealership just up the road too. Proper Cheshire Set territory. If they ever fixed the M6 properly I might be able to see less of it.

    Have to admit I went to a running shop in Alderley Edge and that out Knutsforded, Knutsford, or out WAGGED it. Two lambos, one mclaren oodles of Evoques and Aston Martins (and this place is tiny). Me and my lad had a laugh at the many daft bints in high heels, orange skin tottering about with small dogs in handbags.

    Aye, AE is the champagne capital of Britain. Footballers' wives territory no question about it. Phil Neville's house was for sale on rightmove a couple of years ago, complete with a custom cloth on the pool table with Neville 18 on it.

    They were called the Indian Mafia with good reason.

    The locals never suffered though, just western ex-pats really. The Gulf Arabs aren't a bunch of self hating, hand wringing pussies and have governments that actually put the needs of their citizens first.

    Can't ever see that happening here

    Yes, I always suspected there would be some trade deal with India that required us to issue lots of visas to Indians so they can come here to work.

    In fact I read somewhere (and it could have been here but more likely the DM) that the Indian govt is actively looking at offloading a few million of its citizens.
