    Proposals for it include turning it into a commercial heliport, a base for security personnel during the London Olympics, or a school and nightclub
    Anyone who is involved with BSF and who is located on the coast, watch out!

    I'll give you priority access to oil for 10 years. Does your price include P&P?

    Are the Phalanx still intact? Then we can have some awesome skeet shooting parties I did ask the boss if we could buy it as a new server room. I think there may be a problem parking it here though.

    You can clean the barrels!

    Is anyone else trawling the Disposals web site? I quite fancy the Lightning at a lawn ornament for home, or maybe a snow blower to hire out to the council next winter.
