    I am doing a degree through work and have started to go into to the uni on Fridays. The parking or lack of in Chelmsford is a nightmare. Got the park and ride last week and the que was 300 deep. I'm just wondering if anyone knows of any street parking that is within a 20 odd minute walk as...

    Political censorship and control on facebook?

    Looks as though a post I attempted to put up concerning my right to a voice in the forthcoming referendum has been prevented from being viewed. I got a notice this morning, stating that it had been submitted for approval by an admin; since then, nothing at all. It apears you can swear as...

    Pre-Match Thread Southend United v Newport County

    Tuesday is only a few days and nights away. The BIG games keep on coming; it is all to play for for both teams with aspirations (and cliches) to the fore. We MUST have 3pts, they would settle for a point. With the "park the bus" situation looming Mr Brown must sharpen things up. Dan in GK...

    International Driving Permit - Florida

    Off to Florida soon and had an email from the villa owner saying I had to get an International Driving Permit as its a new law introduced on the 1st Jan 2013 but hardly publicised. Never heard of it and checked RAC and Post Office but both say recommended only. However the AA site shows : R –...
  11. Ref Watch ..... Cup replay Brentford

    As we look to improve on a poor recent record at Griffin Park (no win for over 22 years) the man in charge of tomorrow's replay, weather permitting, is the shaven-headed 41 year old, Darren Drysdale from Lincolnshire. A sergeant in the RAF, on the human resources side, he began refereeing in...

    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...

  14. Getting onto Foulness Island?

    Does anybody know how to obtain a permit to get onto foulness island and has anybody been on the island lately? We've been looking into our family history for a while now and discovered we had relatives on the island over 100 years ago and that they're buried at the church on the island so we...
  15. Ref Watch ...... Rotherham

    Weather and pitch permitting, the man in charge tomorrow evening is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 8th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. He did absolutely no games at all the season before last which would...
  16. Ref Watch ....... AFC Wimbledon

    Saturday's man in charge, floodlights permitting, is the loose cannon that is Trevor Kettle. Or, rather, Wing Commander Trevor Kettle based at RAF High Wycombe. This is his 9th season as a League referee and his matches have been littered with controversy and condemnation throughout. I am sure...
