Somebody have a bet with us, even if its just a pound :)

That way I can change the price, contact the Sun newspaper and tell them that there has been a massive gamble on a particular song and we have it for eighteen hundred million pounds!!!!!

This would be an important victory for people in general if RAGE win.
It will give a good example of what can be achieved when people uprise against things that they feel strongly about. There is strength in numbers...

This is just for a song, imagine if people rose up against the bilge that is givien to us on a daily basis from our Right honourable friends 'running' this country.

too true Mose.

It was a cracking market GB, one of the all time classics imo.

This result just goes to further cement my policy of never steaming into long odds-on shots, whether they look value or not, the risk is ultimately not worth the gains.

of it all at the death and wanted a momento for an unforgettable day.
