    Would you move next door to an undertakers?

Not that I'm thinking about moving just a general question would it bother you moving next door to an...

  3. 'Travellers' antics at Canvey & Southend during the weekend.

    Just read the Echo's story of the above, disgusting. How come these 'people' can leave a site and be allowed to leave behind a mountain of rubbish, and no one gets arrested?. As for what happened in the Bell at Southend, can you imagine a group of locals behaving like that and no one getting...

    Whacking of at work

    Got asked today by a colleague if I have even bashed the Bishop at work (which is worrying me a bit to say the least) Not sure if this has been covered before, but……. Have you spilt the baby gravy on your work premises?????
  12. 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...

Towards the end of last season the club banned food i.e. large whale & chips from the Fish House, being taken into the ground, but then relented after 1 match IIRC. However it was stated, not for the 1st time, that only...

    Apologies to any stewards on here...

    8-36 am My alarm clock goes off, it’s a match day today and the culmination of a heavy weeks safety training, I've spent the whole week at the Stadium learning to walk up and down stairs, I'm yet to have as many gold stars as my friend Dave but I do think I chose the right career path instead of...
