  1. Ref Watch ... Northampton. H

    Appointment for Saturday: Referee: Nick Kinseley Assistant Referee: Kevin Howick Assistant Referee: Paul Kelly Fourth Official: Paul Yates Savings on travel expenses this week! Details to follow in due course!
  2. Ref Watch ..... Leyton Orient FA Youth Cup

    This is more an opportunity to plug tomorrow night's home FA Youth Cup tie than any misguided belief that anyone actually cares who is refereeing it. Earning his rather miserly £45 plus travelling expenses will be Daniel Richardson from Middlesex. He was promoted to level 3 a couple of years...

    Brian Horton's Contribution

    Has our form coincided with the arrival of Horton in and around the squad, it's known he is harsh and ruthless in an old skool Northern manner. Now I'm not blaming him but I am wondering what is his actual contribution and I assume he is paid a pretty penny along with handsome expenses whilst...

    John Bercow's expenses.

    It looks as if John Bercow is going to feature strongly in the news over the next few days. According to the BBC report below he has clocked up £34k of expenses over the past year. I don't think there is a suggestion of wrong doing, but you would think that the Speaker of the House would be a...

    The Tories and the General election

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-31901533 This seems to me to be a bit more serious than a 17 quid expenses claim.
  7. Napster


    My constituency is a close run thing now - we've always been a strong Tory hold - Ann Widdecombe was MP, but the new MP, Helen Grant, keeps putting her foot in it, with expenses, comments about passports, women's sport, a lot of people have lost faith in her. Anyway, I've now had 2 doorsteps...
  8. Dennis McShane: "Being a Guardian reading liberal leftie made me ignore child abuse"

    Dennis McShane: "Being a Guardian reading liberal leftie made me ignore child abuse" The title of the thread is a quote from the former Rotherham Labour MP Dennis McShane in a BBC interview - what are peoples' views on this?

    The Football Assocation

    It's easy to be critical and point the finger at certain organisations - after all, it's nearly impossible to get all decisions right and even with the best of intentions, not everything goes true to plan or comes to fruitition. But then there is F.I.F.A. who are simply bonkers (and allegedly...

    Maria Miller

    How is is right that an MP steals money from her employer to the tune of 45k yet is then only asked to pay back 5k and say sorry. Surely any normal person who stole that amount would face jail for theft. This one rule for us in power and one for the plebs is disgusting.Cameron backing her...

    Lords expenses cheats

    So Lord Hanningfield has been getting £300 quid for 20 minutes a day in the House of Lords; and justify s it by explaining they all do it! or something similarly; poor for an explanation/justification. How is this "Essex" finest allowed to do this and surely after his recent incarceration he...

  14. Is the standard Maths teaching in decline? You decide

    Organ donors 'should be offered funeral expenses'

    Would this encourage you to donate or would you donate anyway?

    Question Trust Transport to Scotland????

    The Trust are now spending up to £10,000.00 on subsidising the clubs expenses for this pre-season trip to Scotland. As the motto is "to Help not Hinder" can i take it that they will be organising a coach service for supporters?

    Fifa rotten to the core?

    Civil war appears to have broken out in Fifa, a pretty unedifying spectacle. Whole organisation seems totally corrupt. Perhaps we should follow Australia in claiming our expenses back for the last hopeless and futile bid to hold the competition?

    Vote NO for contribution to Scotish Tour

    Why should the club go on a jolly that the club cannot afford? Why should the Trust pay half of the money needed? Are they gonna pay my expenses too if i cannot afford to go? Bloody right they are not! Being as the Trust has just spent £12,000.00 of Trust Members money on Physio equipment...

    We'll make it to Fossetts

    *Typed up for the Exiles* As expected RM makes a statement to the Echo a week before the AGM, he is becoming more predictable by the day. Southend United chairman Ron Martin expects the football club to be playing at the new FF stadium next year. He spoke out as Blues' latest accounts were...
  20. Venice

    Heading out to Venice for a conference and due to annoying flight times got a bit of time to kill in Venice (not too shabby I suppose). Any tips on things to do, places to go, restaurants? Basically somewhere off the main tourist trail would be great because I'm sure I'll head back again with...
