    Podcast 1: Flag/Banner to Auction

    I have no idea how I ended up with this but anyway it's up for auction towards our fundraising efforts. It is quite old as I must of had it for 15 years + and is more of a banner than a flag, as I can't see it takes a pole. It measures 140cms wide and 85cms deep. (4 feet 7 by just under 3 feet...

    The strange case of the glamour photographer and his deselection as a labour candidat

    Surprised no one had picked this story up, which I saw in last week's Echo. It surely has two major elements for attracting our attention............sex and politics! :smile: http://www.echo-news.co.uk/news/15547569.Labour_activist_banned_from_standing_in_election_over____Page_3____career/...

    Zone Update Members

    It has come to our notice over time and more prevalent now, that certain posters are only here to **** off the majority with their views and not just join in with daily banter and threads. I think we let most go, but when it comes to disruption of these forums we have to make a stand. Those...

    VPNs are to be banned in Russia this year, and China in 2018. Both big brother Countries want to control information, news, social media and such, more than they do now. Russia has an election in 2018, and are taking control even more of their people. China is very soon going to ban Facebook...

    Credit and debit card surcharges to be banned

    One of my pet hates is when I get charged a surcharge for paying for something by Credit or Debit card. So this latest gem was music to my ears. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-40648641 One short extract from the link made me really glad that we're leaving the EU (allegedly). We won't have...

  19. Brown being sent to the stands.....

    Being a long way from seeing brown sent off last night , any ideas whether this will effect the next games?... didn't he get warned about his future behavior and conduct after questioning officials? I have no problem with him getting in Parkinson's face as he is an irratating weasel of a...

    Charlton Ath away PC Keith Palmer

    I'm wondering whether we could show a flag/banner to the Charlton fans on Saturday, from the Shrimper faithful, as a tribute to loyal Charlton supporter PC Keith Palmer who sadly lost his life as a result of the terror incident in Westminster last month ? I think it would be a nice touch from...
