  1. If you visit Romford Central library archive section they have all the local papers from the year dot online. Not sure if she still works there because of cut backs, but there is/was a lady there that could find anything in seconds. Even if she is not its quite easy to navigate.
  2. I havnt been to a Romford game since my son died ten weeks ago, and dont intend to again in the foreseeable future. As I intend taking my grandson to games it will probably be D&R, Orient or Spurs.
  3. For me the only decent thing about this afternoon was a total lack of bad language from supporters and players so well done to everyone concerned. I would happily take my football mad grandson to Bridge Avenue if the football wasn't so absolutely dreadful. If he watched a couple of games like today's it would probably put him off for life.
  4. I really cant believe anyone takes that idiot seriously.
  5. The voting demographics seem to suggest that our generation favour brexit, while the the younger generation overwhelmingly favour staying in.After the way us baby boomer's have allowed politicians of both major parties to ensure many of them will have a lifetime of debt thanks to tuition fees, the certainty that most of them will never get on the housing ladder thanks to us voting for Thatcher so we could buy council housing stock on the cheap, and condemning them to a poverty stricken old age because we allowed the final salary pension we enjoy to be a thing of the past for our own children. I really feel ashamed of the golden generation to whom I belong and hope by voting to stay in they rub our noses right in it.
  6. Think I would prefer Merkel to President Trump running the show.
  7. I'm a proud European but not so proud Englishman so I will certainly vote to stay in.
  8. When the Labour Parties policy review on defence has been concluded I think you will find a genuinely more sensible solution will be found. My own view is that for political expediency their should be a referendum on the future of Trident.
  9. Any truth in the rumour that hundreds of Urchins are coming to Ship Lane on Wednesday to cheer on mighty Romford.
  10. As I never read the right wing papers the thought police haven't influenced me and I honestly believe Corbyn is doing a great job, as do the vast majority of party members. As for the "moderate" (Torylite) Labour MPs, in a perfect world they would join the Tories, resign their seats and fight by-elections. They wont of coarse because they believe their careers to be more important than the ordinary people they are supposed to represent.
  11. I would love to see Bernie Sanders get the Democrat nomination. Prime Minister Corbyn and President Sanders would certainly make the world a safer place.
  12. They already have Dwight Gayle who played for Stansted so why not?
  13. The forums certainly not the same without him. I hope loose is OK.
  14. I still think Loose is Rhodes alter-ego.
  15. Call me cynical, but IMO no decision will be announced until after the new London mayor is elected.
  16. I still think his idea of building a new London airport on the Thames Estuary is a good one, as is his objections to another runway at Heathrow. Multiple cycle lanes is also is a good policy. He may be a complete buffoon but his time as London mayor hasn't been a complete disaster IMO.
  17. Americas history with regards to electing bad leaders is quite frightening, as is ours in the UK. I'm now having nightmares about an apocalyptic world with Trump, Boris Johnson and the French National Front leaders of the so called free world.
  18. Are you suggesting that the Kippers lost the bye-election because the other far right fascist party privatised the Royal Mail?
  19. The good folk of Oldham don't agree with you BJR. Lol.
  20. Jeremy Corbyn has most certainly not sent any MP pictures of dead babies, although had he done so it seems a reasonable enough thing to do to me. Babies will be killed so what's wrong with highlighting it graphically. With regards to JCs future job prospects, he may not have the support of a large proportions of his MPs, but he has overwhelming support from our members and affiliated unions, so there's little our Tory-lite MPs can do about it.
  21. Potentially tens of thousands of innocent Syrians could be killed by yet more indiscriminate bombing, and IMO we would be no better than ISIS. If we want to recruit for ISIS and create more carnage on our shores I can think of no better way to do so.
  22. I'm bitterly disappointed by allowing a free vote, and sincerely hope that every warmonger Labour MP is deselected ASAP.
  23. The big question is probably unanswerable but we need to find a way to stop, or possibly contain ISIS. I would imagine its almost impossible to bomb ISIS out of existence because for every one we kill,it will just inspires even more impressionable Muslims to commit to their murderous regime. Its unlikely a political leader from the so called civilised world would be able to negotiate a satisfactory peace with them, although a neutral intermediary might, although that's probably also doomed to fail. Perhaps one solution might be to let them have some of the territory they have already destroyed and now control, and build a cast iron curtain around it so no-one will ever be allowed to leave. Hopefully then in one or two generations time there will be a popular uprising when they understand returning to the dark ages is most definitely not the recipe for a better life.
