    HMRC Expert needed - fuel duty query

    Someone has told me it's legal to use 2,500 litres of vegetable oil in a Diesel vehicle, thus evading tax! Surely this can't be right. Any experts on this?

    New 'Southend United' Book: "Roots To The 92"

    Dear All, I hope a number of you will be interested in this. I recently completed the 92 current league grounds - some of you will have seen my 'Derek Spence' thread after the Blackpool game. Well, another one on the 'bucket list' was to write a book so, killing two birds with one stone and...

    Syria air strikes

    http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-34950778 Think this topic now deserves its own dedicated thread. Always been impressed by Mark Rylance -either on the stage or in front of the cameras. Good video here on which countries are actually bombing in Syria already.Must be getting fairly crowded in Syrian...
  6. 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...
  7. Car help

    My car (VW Golf) has just got to it's service mileage. It's not due its (first) MOT for another couple of months. Do I take it now for a service (major one = pricey) and then for its MOT in a few months, or hold out and get it done altogether which might save me a little and is more convenient...

    Ten pounds a week for food?

    I saw in the media that It's possible to feed oneself for a week for just £10. So I though OK, let's have a try. The rule is - you can only use the real basic stuff from your own cupboards e.g. cooking oil, butter, salt, vinegar and so on. OK so here's my provision (and indeed provisional)...

    Pre-Match Thread Blues v Dagenham (JPT)

    If I were you I'd get yourself along tomorrow evening as it promises to be a real cracker! Why am I so sure? Well I'm not going, that's why! It's not that I just can't go - there's usually at least one game per season which for various family/work reasons I can't attend. No, tomorrow night...
  10. OD - It's up for grabs now...

    OK, so 13 weeks of toil, all boils down to today. BATTY SHRIMPERS (1st) v Los Galactico (4th) A win for us today, will see us in a P/O for the chance of becoming only the 4th(?) side from SZ to make it to the promised land of I.1 in OD. LG needs a win to guarantee he finishes above the...
  11. US Taxpayers to pay for rest of clean up not BP or other companies involved

    The US district court (forgive my ignorance on that if Rusty or other USA peeps could equate it to our judicial system ?) has decide thus http://blog.alexanderhiggins.com/2011/06/18/unbelievable-courts-rule-taxpayers-bp-transocean-liable-gulf-oil-spill-clean-costs-29071/ . That even though the...

    OD - Week 5

    Stumpys v ShrimperZone CC 5th v 3rd, evenly matched but we've had to rest HHH who's stuck at fresh fitness after the extended toil against Parkway. Probably makes them favourites, though I don't know what their fitness is like. A low scoring game in prospect given the pitch and weather so...

  15. Oil Company Profits

    So, in the interests of informed debate, the oil majors published their year end results this week. With the exception of BP (for obvious reasons), they all posted significant profit increases. Is this a good thing or a bad thing?

    The mongol rally 2012

    Well I had intended on leaving this until nearer the time but things have moved on a little quicker than expected so here goes. Several years ago I was being all funky and surfing the net when I happened across an web site called TheAdventurists. Through my drunken haze I read about a totally...

    Oil Slick at Southend

    Just seen on BBC news. BP haven't been drilling locally have they ?
  18. Car trouble...

    We have a 52 Renault Clio. Really reliable motor, until recently. Been finding that occasionally (maybe once a fortnight) it won't start. It'll crank but it never catches. However every time after about 5 mins of trying it'll finally start. I'm fairly relaxed about it, but Mrs Pubey isn't. It's...

    This has been copied word for word from todays echo. The two page spread on pages 8-9. A Lot of it is what we knew already, we up a creak without a paddle, and most probably a raft as well. Taxman Targets Blues…Again (Taken from the Echo, pages 8-9) This time the club owes £200,000...
