    Local elections 2018

    Thought it worthwhile starting a thread on this as we are only a few weeks away. Any seats in or around Southend up for grabs this May? Obviously, London is going to be very interesting - e.g in Hillingdon Labour are really on the attack as Boris Johnson is an MP for a large chunk of that area...

    Half Price footy

    I've just found out that if you take your Southend Utd season ticket along to watch Maldon & Tiptree FC you get half price admission. This is a good initiative to encourage local football fans watch other local matches , i wonder if any other clubs do this and why its not advertised. For...

    Catalonia Independence

    Polling going well over there. Rubber bullets and stun grenades all round at the moment. No mention of this from 'He Who Must Be Ignored' Must be hiding under the table........I mean leading the protests from the front.

    Promotion & Relegation Teams for 2017/18 Season

    Simple enough - name the teams that you think will get promoted automatically (and play-offs if you wish) and the teams that you think will be relegated. Reasons why you have made your selection would be nice. :smile: Just putting Southend as Champions isn't really helping the discussion...

    When Nigel met Donald

    Nigel Farage has already dropped in to Trump Tower for a chat it seems. Downing Street are impressed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-37965089

    Brexit: an apology

    During the referendum campaign I was guilty of talking down the benefits of Brexit down. In particular I was highly sceptical of the health advantages that this would bring despite this seemingly being a huge part of the Leave campaign (see picture of leading Government minister in front of a...
  13. Terry Gray

    What a good game last night and, to top it off, Terry Gray was at the game looking very fit and well. We spoke about the famous 'food poisoning' back in 1979 and I hadn't realised just how bad it was. Terry told me that the chicken they had been given was actually contaminated with salmonella...

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...
  18. US Presidential election thread

    OK - I think we need a thread that doesn't specifically focus on Trump, and we also need a thread with a few ground rules. I'm not sure why but I always tend to get quite involved with the US elections (and US politics in general). This year's election is bound to be fascinating, and you can...

    London Mayoral Elections

    Interesting piece about George Galloway. Apologies for the Guardian link, yes I do feel dirty but still, food for thought. http://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/davehillblog/2015/nov/25/george-galloway-if-i-was-jeremy-corbyn-id-want-me-to-be-london-mayor I wonder what his real agenda is.
