    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...

    Theresa May - Dead woman walking?

    The old adage of keeping your friends close and your enemies closer appears to have finally backfired for Theresa May where Boris Johnson is concerned. I don't pay anywhere near as much attention to politics as I used to, but it does look as if Theresa has lost a lot of confidence and respect...

    Boris Johnson interview

    Not sure which thread this should belong in, but it needs to be on here somewhere. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-40358825/boris-johnson-struggles-in-interview

    Theresa May

    Blimey she's ruthless. Hunt, Gove, Osbourne, Morgan, Whittingdale, all gone. New posts created for Brexit, including Davis in charge of Brexit (who has always been anti-EU), and the disgraced Liam Fox as new international trade minister. Oh and BoJo, which is very clever for May. In essence...

    Prime minister

    Just got on Boris with Paddys at 4/5 which was their January price. Would expect that to shorten very quickly.
  6. Boris

    Yes he play's the idiot very well,yet is one clever dude ! Just seen Boris perform in Dartford with his out vote and even though I intend voting out,he has 100% convinced me even further to get out of the EU. Future PM in waiting.

    Boris - Good or Bad

    Now that Boris has his feet under the cabinet table is there an inevitability that eventually he will decide who joins him there? The more I see of the man, the more I think he has a very carefully planned career path and all the bumbling Boris stuff is pure smoke screen. Exactly what is his...

    Boris Johnson

    The London Mayor has confirmed his intention to stand as a Conservstive candidate in the next general election. Uxbridge and South Ruislip, where long standing MP John Randall is stepping down, looks a perfect fit for him as the voters there will love his anti-3rd runway stance. Ladbrokes have...

    Engaging with the club's supporters

    Interesting article here from Supporters Direct on fan engagement, we've brought in the idea of "buying" the opportunity to lead the teams out this season, but what other ideas could we suggest for Roots Hall? You’ll have heard a lot this season on the disconnect between supporters and clubs...

    The Nakid Truth

    Taken from: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Naked-Truth-CameronIs-he-the-worst-prime-minister-in-British-history/349274725156523 How close was David Cameron to having a week that was not a total disaster for himself or the government. I really thought he was going to make it by Thursday,But...

    Who is the most annoying person in modern politics?

    "Call me Dave" Cameron described Ed Balls the most annoying person in politics yesterday. Personally my vote would go to Boris Johnson or "Boy" George Osborne. Any other candidates?

Orient believe that if West Ham move to the stadium, which is within a mile of their Brisbane...

    Question You are granted an evening in the pub with two celebs. Who do you choose?

    Ok, lets put to one side replies like 'Katie Price, both of them' etc, or 'Glasgow Shrimper and True Blue' (sorry gents, no reason for pcking on you) etc. Who do you think it would be great to just while away a few hours in a pub over a few beers and just have a damn good evening/laugh? For my...
  14. Would you have her courage?

    On Mr B's "Pictures of Birds" thread, Boris posted up a picture of a lady called Sarah Jane Howe. It was a bit different from the others on the thread because, as Boris pointed out, she seemed to have no nipples. Below is her story - and as asked in the thread title, would you have her courage?

    Boris Johnson stumbles into river

    Classic Boris at his best today. The journos of project workers asked him to look towards them so he decides to go one better and walk towards them and then does what only Boris does best!!!! Boris goes for a dip!!

    Decided to go to Bristol Rovers as its getting close to baby time and I want to be close enough to home so that I can get back incase MrS DtS decided to pop. As we have three weeks to go a look at the fixture list told me this was the last one I could aim for. I am allowing myself home games as...

    2012 celebration - was it reflective of modern Britain?

    I thought that the point of 2012, according to the BBC coverage and Seb Coe, was to give the youth of today a memorable Olympic Games. The handover ceremony was handled well I thought, being a bit quirky and an ok mix of old and new, but what the hell was that travesty on tv afterwards? If that...

    London Mayoral Election - Who will win?

    Ok I see this as a two horse race between Ken Livingstone & Boris Johnson, with the rest also rans. I think that Boris may will win this. Anybody else see it differently or think Brian Paddick or one of the other candidates (other than the BNP) can win?
