    Duplicate.Dunno why.
    "The British government is free to make a decision about its participation in the World Cup," he said.

    But nobody has the right to insult the Russian people - who defeated Nazism and lost more than 25 million people - by comparing our country to Nazi Germany.

    That goes beyond common sense."

    You missed the now bad areas of Westcliff at night. Hamlet Court Road area. Valkyrie Road area. The worst is probably Station Road where the druggies come out and dealers from London come in. Police are non existent, only turning up after a crime is reported and usually much too late. The drug problem has reached epidemic proportions in some areas of Westcliff which has seen theft from cars, shops and burglaries go through the roof to feed their habit.

    Ha! One of my cousins (fairly well known to many on here) joined the force and rose to DI until he retired fairly recently.I'm far too intolerant of authority figures to contemplate anything of that sort.

    Seventies,I'm not saying there aren't any problems in the Westcliff area these days.Just that I didn't see any myself, on a recent trip over.And (as I said) I did spend quite a bit of time in HCR.

    Dick Spooner I presume. He got me out of a few stickey situations back in the day. He's a good bloke and had the respect of most of the dark side. Hope he is well.

    Good to see that James Duddridge has time to moan and complain about Bercow but doesn't seem to give a flying **** about the state of Southend. Getting worse and worse under him and the council.
