    Question Would you pay £1 per month to use ShrimperZone?

    Firstly this is not directed to those that have and do donate yearly...we thank you for that. So second thing to say is, there are NO plans to charge people to use ShrimperZone. However, I did wonder how much people actually value the community we have here. As you know from the money raising...

    Question Legal question.

    Read carefully. This hasn't happened to me but I just wondered what the position would be. I pull into a service station. A sign says "It is an offence to fuel your car without the means to pay" or similar. So I put £50 in. I go to pay with a £50 note - all I have on me at the time -and the...

    Best place to get Euros

    Heading away for a week with the missus and need to sort currency out. I know the Euro is in a shocking state at the moment to say the least, but where would be the best place for me to aquire some of this fine European monopoly money? Or is it so dire that it really doesn't matter?

    I was on the tube this morning travelling into the City, when the guy next to me noticed by SUFC coat and asked if I was a fan and if I remembered him from 10 years ago (which I was, having been at Brisbane Road when he got both goals in the 2-0 win). Now works as a foreign currency trader in...

    The Southend Pound

    Just been watching Michael Portillo's programme where he goes round Britain on the train (only because I couldn't be bothered to switch over to SSN). One of the places he visited was the Devon town of Totnes. One of the things that struck me was that the local people there have introduced...

    Return Of The Old Guard

    How very retro. There was a time when any game between Arsenal and Manchester United was epoch-shaking. They were the two giants of the domestic game, battling out their own private war while the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and, this'll make you laugh, Newcastle could only look on from the...

    Any truth in this WW2 story?

    Judging by how far behind eveyone else I seem to be in getting jokes and stuff sent to me, I don't know if any of you have seen this story. It seems very far fetched to me, just wondered if anyone knows if there's any truth in it or is this a hangover from last April Fools' Day or something? ;)...
  12. Question £80 million ?

    Since the 2000 article in the Independent Newspaper [see Other Owners thread at Fossetts Forum], what has changed ? RM/Owners have not "demanded" rent for RH and have already written off a sizeable sum, yet there remains an equally large sum, still technically due or payable. Suppose 20% p.a...

    The B.N.P.

    So, they have done extremely well again this year, coming 5th in the london Mayoral Vote. But do we really know the truth about the B.N.P? Have you actually read the manifesto and mission statements? Ok, so they are a bit far right of the middle, but they want the best for this country. In my...
