    Bet Fair challange

    I have recently entered a competition among a few mates where the challenge is turn an account containing only 20 pounds, into a 200 pound bank by the end of November.

    Oh deary me! £50,000 as well

    "A lottery-winning couple who blew all of their prize money in the space of a year say they are now facing eviction from their home for a second time after being refused benefits. Jobless Jamie and Abbie Hort won £50,000 in the Christmas 2014 Channel Islands Lottery but the Guernsey couple...
  3. The Falklands.

    Things could start hotting up out there. The Falklands or Malvinas as the Argies call them, 310 miles from Argentina, is under increased threat again after oil and gas was found through drilling. The thing is, the last time the Argies moved on the Falklands we were a much bigger in military...

    HK Ferry Crash

    Woke this morning to hear this 36 dead so far. Yesterday was a national holiday culminating in a firework display that was breathtaking. 25 minutes and just when you thought it can't get any better they kept coming bigger and better. Some of these people were on their way to it. The ferries...
  6. Holiday help - where's hot in November?

    Looking to get some winter sun with the missus and some friends? Needs to be cheap but nice, and hot if possible. Someone mentioned the Canary Islands, but I've never been. Is that a good call?

    Sean Penn on the Falklands Islands

    "Last year I went to Falklands. Before the British showed up, it was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate, where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles."

  10. The Guardian, Tax Avoidance and Hypocrisy

    Giving that The Guardian is an oft referenced publication on this forum, I thought it would be worth highlighting some hypocrisy in their editorial stance. We know that they are very much against tax avoidance, especially the use of offshore trusts and entities. Surely they would never use...

    The Financial Situation Explained (Sort of!)

    Found this on a Grimsby forum HERE. Quite why it is on there I don't know, but details the mess we are in, quite well I feel. Ammendments in red. Feel free to suggest anything you feel is incorrect or needs adding. I will then edit this list, so it's all in one place. 1] Sainsburys...

    I can understand there is a reluctance on some peoples part, to protest at the club. But the time is now, think back to the united for southend/true blues protest. I remember the graffiti outside barclays opposite wh smiths in the high street. JOBSON OUT In huge letters, also there was pitch...

  15. Holibobs!

    Looking at booking a decent holiday sometime later in the year - anyone recommend somewhere decent? Looking for a quiet, relaxing beach type holiday - ideally no kids around! So far, looked at; 1) Sandals - quite expensive and not meant to be as good as advertised. Lots of beach weddings and...

    Where have you been on holiday?

    The holiday season is nearing it's end for most people so as we head back to school, work, sitting at home on your own in a dark room on SZ, or whatever it is you do why not try and relax thinking about the memories of the boiling Costa Del Sol or the freezing cafes down the seafront. So where...

    Dear Andorra

    Now, on the off chance that someone from Andorra is holidaying in Singapore and is reading this article, let me make it clear that I have nothing against your country. I've never met an Andorran, which is hardly surprising as I believe there are only about 30 of you in existence, but I'm sure...
