    Bad news for the area

    Support Tonight

    Tonight is one of the biggest nights in the clubs history. Chelsea and Man Utd will get more attention when you flick back through the history books in 50 years time but Gillingham at Roots Hall is far more important to the future of our club. Think of all the wonderful memories you have of...

    Green shoots?

    I'm on Linkedin, which as some people know, is a glorified version of facebook, but for business. Anyway, in the last week, I've now been approached by 4 different companies (2 agencies, 2 conference companies), asking whether I'm interested in a position. Latest one today is a decent company...

    Tories target incapacity benefit recipients.

    Tories to cut incapacity benefit bill. I'm not a politician but exactly what jobs are all these people going to do? I wouldn't be surprised to see the Conservatives cite Stephen Hawking as an example of someone fit enough to work when they start slashing peoples benefits.
  5. Lionel Messi's NOTW Interview

    On a Sunday I usually get a copy of the News of the Screws as well as the Observer purely for the actually impressive football coverage, and today the supplement has an "exclusive" interview with Lionel Messi. Good, I thought. During the interview, something came up that i've certainly not...
  6. Travelodge activities

    quality story from b3ta.com: Thinking about it, a hundred-or-so people have seen my c*ck over the years. And some of them - a pitifully small percentage of those people – actually wanted to see my throbbing cervix scratcher; whereas the others sort of had it thrust upon them... On the...

    Teaching Assistant cuts

    Absolute joke - without TAs in the classrooms these days schools would fall apart. I spent the whole of Thursday dealing with behavioural issues which no teacher would have had time to deal with. They can't have it both ways, they either want inclusivity or they don't - and if they want cut...
  8. Legalise drugs article.

    Taken from the New Scientist, fascinating article that I totally agree with. I know it's an age old topic on here but it's a slow day. Far from protecting us and our children, the war on drugs is making the world a much more dangerous place. SO FAR this year, about 4000 people have died in...
  9. Can of Worms Opened, Europe turns on the Premier League Bully Boys

    Like the Headmaster at a School, FIFA are now rounding up the bullies of the football world and taking them to task... Manchester City the latest club to be investigated for illegal transfer activity. When Lens were succesful in their pursuit of a just punishment for Chelsea FC over the Gael...

    Train Strike claims form

    For those who were f***ed up over the last few weeks by those ungrateful b***ards on National Express who don't deserve jobs let alone pay rises. The strike claim form is now available online. http://www.nationalexpresseastanglia.com/commuter/strike_claims

    Question How important is saving money?

    Another one for the Zone, as of September time I should be getting an income of around £130 P/w with two new jobs, and EMA etc. I'm 16 at this current time and am wondering whether I should be slapping away as much as I can and having a money tight social life or whether I should spend now and...

    1 in 15 jobs to go at Royal Mail

    Starting from Monday, apparently. For every 15 delivery walks - the RM want 1 walk to be done on top on the postman's normal delivery. Hey i cant grumble - as i've had it easy for the past 5 years - and its not going to add a whole lot of time but expect local strikes - maybe at the bigger...

    Time to Boycott Lloyds

    They are keeping open their overseas operations. So Southend shuts, India stays open. Vote with your feet people, Natwest closed their overseas call centres a while ago and now have people in the UK answering their phones. I just cancelled my house insurance with the Lloyds group. That'll get...

    X-Files Special: Prince of Wales really is a Charlie

    From Mark Steyn writing on NRO: According to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, we only have 96 months left to save the planet. I’m impressed. 96 months. Not 95. Not 97. July 2017. Put it in your diary. Usually the warm-mongers stick to the same old drone that we only have ten years left...

    Cover Letter

    Thought that in my time of need I would use the accumulated wisdom of the zone to seek the answer. So I don't have school for the next three months, yet my current assets of Quantum Of Solace for the Wii (Admittedly I cane everyone online at it :)) and about £0.03p isn't going to see me through...

    Lloyds to close all C&G branches

    A company that was a big part of my life and where I spent the best years of my working life (before a couple of miserable ones when it all started to go wrong with LTSB). Many of my former colleagues now face redundancy with 1,500 jobs at risk. Back in 2007 were the first round of job cuts and...
  19. The Job Thread

    It has been agreed by the owners of the Zone that due to the current climate we will allow members to post any job vacancies and also anyone looking for work can advertise their services. For obvious reasons the Zone cannot be held responsible in any way for problems that arise from adverts...
