I hope the full story in the paper tells us what type of sandwich he ate and the brand of drink, it's ruined my day now that I don't know this....

You're telling me that this prince among men owns a car that needs refueling? Just like us mere mortals? Thank you so much, Gazette, for this fascinating insight into the world of this particular man. I would have expected a man of such importance to be flown in safely away from the proles. But wait, there's more in the paper? Are you going to tell us whether he favours bottle water over soft drinks? Or was he buying a cafinated beverage? HOW COULD YOU LEAVE THIS OFF THE WEB ARTICLE, I JUST NEED TO KNOW!

On another note a large number of people locally weren't able to vote in the Euro elections last week, despite checking their forms had gone through, because a second form was introduced yet not advertised anywhere online. To add to that Colchester council don't seem to think advertising this second form's necessity is important. Maybe you could report on that, y'know, if you're not too busy keeping us up to date with the lives of the rich and jobless?

You're right. Please, Gazette, tell us what side the filler cap is on so I can drill a hole in the side of my car, if necessary, in the hope that if I fill my car on the same side I may too, one day, become a man of vast unearned wealth stopping on such great roads as the A12.

I believe that the entrance to this garage and indeed the A12 in its vicinity, should be painted gold as a way to properly mark this esteemed visit.

Just because one of the bosses goes into a petrol station for food and fuel, it does not justify a media report, in fact it is a security risk that the paper is displaying his whereabouts.
