    Milliband wants to be first Jewish PM

    Slight problem with that you plumb. Never heard of Benjamin Disraeli? We are truly doomed if this idiot gets in.

    New developments in the Middle East

    I notice after the UN's overwhelming vote to recognise Palestine's state status,Israel has now threatened to build another "3,000 housing units" in East Jerusalem and the West Bank. I hope the PLO will now use their state status to take this matter before the International Criminal Court(ICC)...

    Shootings in toulouse and montauban......islamic connection?

    It started with a soldier being shot dead in Toulouse by a person on a scooter just over a week ago and this was followed by three soldiers being gunned down in Montauban last Thursday. All of the soldiers were magherébin (arab) and I started to think of an islamic link..........joining the...

    The Thought of the Day Thread

    We have probably done this before, but what is thought provoking to you? For me I wonder why.... There is only one Monopolies Commission. If Typhoo put the T in Britain, who put the **** in Scunthorpe? If Jesus was Jewish why did he have a Mexican name? Over to you Zoners.
  5. Ref Watch ..... Gillingham (make or break)

    The referee for tomorrow evening's match was to have been the quite highly rated James Linington from the Isle of Wight, but it will now be a first year referee Brendan Malone from Salisbury making his Roots Hall debut. This will be his second Southend match, having previously refereed the...

    Blair: Gaza's great betrayer

    It's more than a year since Israel launched its immoral attack on Gaza and Palestinians are still living on the verge of a humanitarian disaster. So what has Tony Blair done to further peace in the region? Virtually nothing, argues the historian Avi Shlaim Comments (98) Buzz up! Digg it Avi...
  7. Hands Up Who Paid for That...

    I'll admit it. I paid the full £14 to watch 76 seconds of boxing last night. I was fooled by a Jewish New Yorker who talked a good game, but failed to mark his words with any kind of action. After taking two attempts and a stripping to make the 10 stone weight limit, Dmitriy Salita informed a...

    Do blokes ever befriend women purely for Friendship.

    Last saturday after getting back from the game of the century (Southend vs Oldham) I was expecting a night at home with the Mrs and maybe some good home cooked food. When I got home it became apparant this would not be the case as she had three of her best friends over. Not an issue always nice...

    Free Speech? Not Here Mate

    As a Jewish person, I found the internet postings of Simon Sheppard and Stephen Whittle regarding holocaust denial extremely offensive, but do such things really warrant a five year jail sentence? And why have harsh punishments such as these not been meted out to Islamist hatemongers? Here's the...

    Faith Schools

    Apparently there is to be a new report out on Monday trying to persuade Ed Balls to get rid of faith schools (including Catholic, CoE as well as Jewish, Muslim, Sikh, and even Greek Orthodox and Seventh Day Adventist). BBC Radio Essex have asked me to briefly speak on their Sunday morning show...

    Who Do You Think You Are - Jerry Springer

    I know there was footie on last night, but did anyone else catch this programme? I think it's repeated this evening around 7/7.30 on BBC2 and if you get the chance I really would encourage you to watch. Amazingly moving, his parents, with his older sister, escaped Jewish persecution from what...
  13. 18 Plus+Transsexuals - would you?

    Following on from the Dana International pics in the Eurovision thread, would you do a ladyboy? I think Dana would feel my righteous fury, but I wouldn't tell my Dad. My Mum wouldn't mind as (s)he's a good Jewish boy.
  14. B.A.G.’s Partly Political Broadcast

    ‘It’s all About the Oil’ Since I began posting on this board, you, my fellow Zoners may have noticed that I am a contrary fellow who relishes a good argument. I’m not sure if I was made this way, but I do know that there were three years of my life that were pivotal in my development as an...
  15. Jews

    I tried to type a word that rhymes with lid and starts with y, and it came up 'Jewish people' on my post. That was really clever. But I am a y1d, so can I have special dispensation? Please note, that doesn't mean I like Spurs. Gary Bennett's two goals were so so sweet.

  17. Racist chanting at Freddy

    Has anyone noticed how opposing fans have recently started chanting things like 'Gypo' and 'Pikey'. It wouldn't be tolerated if the player was black, so why should it be tolerated by Freddy. I hope the club and the FA sort this out as I feel very upset by these actions. It...

    Friday Funnies

    A cabbie picks up a Nun. She gets into the cab, and the cab driver won't stop staring at her. She asks him why he is staring. He replies: "I have a question to ask you, but I don't want to offend you". She answers, " My son, you cannot offend me. When you're as old...
