  1. Prime Freddy or current Tomlin?

    Simple enough, who'd you have right now? I'm talking Freddy in the previous Lg1/2 campaigns, or Tommo in his current form? Tough choice. Tomlin has an excellent first touch, works well with the team & can't seem to miss atm. Freddy is Freddy though. The ability to change a game with the blink...

    Shrimperzone's Honourable Gentlemen

    Just a bit of fun, it's election time and Shrimperzone has evolved into a national and global beast. The decision has been taken to field a candidate to fight every seat in the country and the opinion polls suggest a landslide for us. We have no elected leader but in anticipation that we will be...

    Labour The Milliband Speech

    Trying to play the class card again. Almost nothing on what he will do for the economy and even nicked the 'One Nation' slogan from Disraeli, a Conservative Prime Minister. Loved all his bluster about the forgotten 50% who dont go to university which is going to blow up in his face on wednesday...
  5. Liberal Democrats The Top 10% - Should They Pay More Tax?

    The Deputy Prime Minister has declared that the top 10% should pay more tax. He didn't distinguish between income and wealth and he didn't say how they should be taxed (though he has talked vaguely about a temporary wealth tax). Do you agree that the top 10% aren't paying enough?

    Question What is making you happy today?

    Instead of what is hacking you off, what is bringing a smile to your face, or pleasing you today? For me, I'm chuffed for the people of Wootton Bassett, for the Prime Minister has confirmed today that the Queen has for the first time in 100 years granted the use of the Royal title, and Wootton...

    Australian Prime Minister does it again!!

    The Lady Australian Prime Minister decided to open up a hornets nest.I actually think she makes some fair points. "It took a lot of courage for this woman to speak what she had to say for the world to hear. The retribution could be phenomenal, but at least she was willing to take a stand...

    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.

    RIP Simon MacCorkindale

    Another who has died well before his time, and a hunky actor to boot in his prime. Didn't know he'd got cancer but condolences to his missus and family and God Bless and RIP Simon.

    Hottest looking Female singer

    Time for a new Totty competition I think....This one is for The Hottest looking Female singer in her Prime..so that can include any female singer over the last 50 odd years or so. As she won a recent Zone Totty competition Cheryl Cole is not allowed as a nominee. Your nominations please people.

    The FA Cup

    I see that there are 4 FA Cup replays this week, and the prime broadcaster ITV are electing to show the cash cow "league" instead. Their excuse is that clubs could not be persuaded to play either Tuesday or Thursday nights. After all the fuss about how utterly abysmal the FA Cup coverage was...

    Songs you have an irrational hatred of

    We all have music we don't like and there's some pretty obvious stuff out there for all of us. However, sometimes, even from a band or genre you like, there's a song that just rubs you up the wrong way for some particular reason. So much so you have to turn off whatever media device is...
