    Sidney - you have forgotten to post the evidence to back up your claim that the previous nominees have gone into liquidation. Quick - do it now - or people will think you are just posting things that aren't true.

    However let's be far, unless you combine a drug dispensing chemist with an off-license, a betting shop and a bed, you are not going to have much success in Torquay these days. How about filling shoalstone pool with Tennents super and laying on a free bus from Castle Circus. Or do todays benefit tourists only use taxis.

    BLAH BLAH BLAH Sidney! How many times... negativity that's all you're good for. How petty must your life be if the only outlook you have is a negative one. It's weird how as soon as a new story appears you're the first one to belate it with your pointless opinion. What do you do for a living or are you sat at home on benefits complaining about everyone getting a free ride. I would love to know what you do because it can't be that important if you spend all your time on this site waiting for new story to appear. How about getting some challenges in your life and take your mind of the negativity. There is a lot of good out there why don't you focus on that or is your brain capacity too small?

    It has been extended because all those who were originally nominated have now gone into liquidation.
