    I thought my fellow anti-BNP friends would enjoy my friends take on BNP and UKIP leaflets for the Euro-Elections: "This evening as I settle down to more work, I choose to not not respond to the provocation of European election flyers from the UK Independence Party and the British National...

    Think what you like about the BNP

    But some of what they say does make sense... The BBC has pulled an appearance by British National Party leader Nick Griffin on today’s Politics Show at the last moment out of fear that his suggestions for the control of expense claims by members of parliament would find popular appeal...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Oliver Trigg

    Oliver Trigg was the man who kicked it all off. Literally. The time was six pm on 25 August 1906. Southend 'A' versus Southend 'B' at Roots Hall, the first practice match, in aid of the Victoria Hospital. Trigg was given the honour of 'kicking off' in his capacity as chairman of The Southend...

    Bit of a dilemma

    A few months back we had a staff poker tournament which didn't have many people playing and certainly didn't have many good people playing. I managed to stick in there taking the easy chips and leaving the tough ones alone and eventually ended up victorious. This was all well and good and my...

    Jury Service advice

    Some advice needed from my fellow Zoners... I was out with my old man last night, and he tells me he's been called up for jury service. He's a bit concerned because he works as a contractor, and he's pretty certain the service is going to cost him a lot of money. I know nothing about jury...

However as a Shrimper i sort of feel i should be at the hall...

    New Southend radio station

    I know Reading Shrimper has already posted some information about the four organisations bidding for the new licence for a radio station in Southend, but seeing as so many people on here are so fed up with coverage of the team on local radio, particularly Essex FM, I thought I'd look at the four...
