IT SEEMS a curious contradiction when one of British speedway's leading promoters says he has let his club down. But that is the feeling Matt Ford has carried with him since September, when Pirates were beaten in the SGB Premiership play-off semi-final for the second straight year. Ford's mantra has always been that in order to secure success on track, things must be right off track. And, speaking with typical frankness ahead of tomorrow's press and practice, the Poole boss did not shy away from an uncomfortable truth. "I do feel I've let the club down, not with the personnel I've picked, but off track I haven't been as good in terms of making sure the club is promoted in the right vein," said Ford. "It's my club and I don't want that to continue, I want to put it back on the map and make sure everyone knows what we're trying to do. "It's important to me to make amends." That much is obvious. Even the most casual Pirates fan would have noticed an increase in the club's … [Read more...] about Speedway feature: ‘I’ve let the club down and it’s important to me to make amends’

The Government is set to make more than £90 million in fines as thousands of Britons are expected to fail to send their tax returns in on time. The final deadline for online self-assessment forms to be sent back to HMRC is 31 January. So far, 3.8 million self-assessment returns have been received, the Revenue said. Although that's 4.2% higher than the same time last year, when added up to the 1.8 million paper returns received, another 3.5 million returns are still due. Accountancy experts said most of those would file in time for the final deadline, but about 900,000 were still expected to miss it, and be fined £100. Taxpayers will also face interest on any unpaid tax. HMRC has been promoting its online returns service with adverts featuring newsreader Moira Stewart. Just under 30,000 taxpayers filed online in 2001. By last year, that figure hit 6.4 million. This year, almost 100 taxpayers chose to spend their New Year's Eve filing their tax return. Between 11pm and … [Read more...] about £90m in fines ahead as online tax return deadline nears
The men stumbled upon the idea in 2004 when they were students at Linköping University after a late night out resulted in a lazy Sunday morning. "We were all sitting around in our apartment and someone suggested pizza," co-creator Erik Mellströmsom told The Local. "Rather typically, none of us had any money, and we thought how great it would be if we could just order it online and pay with card." Mellströmsom and his co-creators Per Anders Bjelkstål and Dan Castillo, who were all studying degrees in economics or engineering, soon realized the potential of their idea. They set to work, and gradually built up the concept until it became well-known and widely used in Linköping, central Sweden. Their project, "Online Pizza", became an online hub where buyers can decide exactly what sort of pizza they want, order it from whichever shop that was featured online, pay by card and have it home delivered. The idea took off, and the students soon found their hands … [Read more...] about Swedes bake up success with online pizza site
