    Essential Southend landmarks

    One of my favourites is Kings Off Licence on Hamlet Court Road. An amazing window display and once inside there is very little you cant buy, from groceries to craft beers, cigars to adult interest publications. The owners do a fantastic job of hiding their contempt for the clientele who are a...
  2. Leonard and our 4 midfielders

    Many ( maybe most ) of us will acknowledge that Ryan Leonard has been our ‘stand out’ player of the past few seasons. He has stood out on more than one occasion - top player.

    The EU Referendum

    Despite being a keen advocate of leaving the EU, I have yet to see from either in or out Camps a firm vision of what the UK will look like further down the road, if we stay or go. What are our political parties plans should exit go ahead?....or indeed if we stay (more political integration...

    Youtube gone all funny!

    When I open a youtube clip - or indeed any other video e.g. BBC, |Yahoo all I see is a white square where the clip should be. Any idea why and what I can do to resolve the issue? Thanks.
  15. 84 Bishops !

    So the 84 demand Dave Cam take 50,000 refugees YET those dear Bishops interviewed all said they would not have them living in their homes.These tell us all how to live and what we should be doing but of course their advice/demands doesn't apply to theirselves. I think the 84 plus Sturgeon and...

    Was looking through the stats in today's programme at work tonight (a very slow night indeed) and saw Mads name and wondered if he is still actually with the club as hadn't heard anything about him since his injury very early in the season.
