    Some reforms to consider

    1 - Scrap televised debates (the one's that started this year with the 3 main party leaders). That's nothing to do with policy and more to do with media training. 2 - Ban politicians in office and candidates as soon as they are standing for office from appearing on 'entertainment' programmes...

    Local Council Election Poll

    I guess it maybe moved but this is regarding the Council election and not the General. Whenever i read an contraversial point in the Echo it always seems to mention this Cabinet that makes supposedly the majority of the decisions in the Southend borough. It is appearing more in the articles...

    Rules Re Sigs

    Clairty please. Some time ago I was asked to removed my snazzy SOCIALISM sig, apparantly political sigs are not allowed. So it was removed. I note a few Tory Sigs appearing over the weekend. Are they to be removed, or can I have my super duper left wing sig back.

    Cheryl Cole. Grrrr.

    There are a million and one reasons to dislike Cheryl Cole. There’s her colour, for starters, a curious orangey glow that smacks of either too much Sunny Delight or too many quid-a-minute South Shields tanning salons. There’s her husband, the odious little skraeling who earns more money in the...

    Jason Donovan

    Does anyone else find themselves sadly wondering where it all went wrong for Jason when they see one of those Iceland adverts? It's a hell of a fall for a man who had four UK number ones to being reduced to appearing in advert where fat/rough people are fighting over frozen buffet food.
  8. All the best for Friday from All Cardiff City fans

    Not long ago we were going through the same thing of court apperances appearing regulary. Look at us now 3rd in the 2nd tier of english football and in a new 27,000 seat stadium. As a "Lower league" club and fans we wish you the very best for Friday and hope you pull through. By the way I was at...

    Question Older women you fancy...

    At the risk of appearing to be ageist with the handful of PC obsessed individuals who rounded on my other thread yesterday, I was wondering about the "more mature" ladies that zoners find desirable? Setting a 45 plus limit, I'll give you a babe I have always had the hots for and I feel is...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Spencer Prior

    Four places (I think) left to fill and next up is Spencer Prior, albeit a day late in Ron Martin style. -------------------------------------------------- Separated by over a decade, Spencer Prior had two very different careers with Southend. Either would be sufficient to get him in the Hall of...

    Screwed up?

    With the new season not yet even appearing on the horizon I've possibly already screwed up. Booked a flight from the 20th to the 29th of August. Firmly in the belief that I was being clever and taking in two Saturdays, so that at least one would be a home match..........only to find out , to my...

    Arsenal 2-1 Hull City (Van Persie, 74) (Barmby, 12) (Gallas, 84) Phil Brown's phone will be red hot by now. In one exhilarating ten minute press conference, the furious Hull City manager unleashed a string of attacks aimed at everyone he deemed responsible for his team's exit. He accused Cesc...

    SZ Widescreen

    My view of the Zone appears to have widened - it is now taking up the full width of my screen, rather than a band down the middle. I seem to remember owners talking about wanting to do this some time ago, but have not seen any great announcement about it, so I'm wondering is it just me? Whilst...
