    Illegal Dumping...

    putting cctv on the toll gate end will only mean the problem moves to the Keristal end !

  6. Victor Kneale was the drive behind the single transferable vote, which was eventually dropped as the results were no different from first past the post but took all night to work out who won !

    Deepwater for Cruise Ships

    there was a suggestion that there were a number of larger windfarm crew transfer vessels on the pontoons which may have added too much load

    Shoprite, the last straw!

    another thing about SR, why do they not stock the 'low salt' and 'low sugar' foods ? (and never stock the chilli Philadelphia spread :-) - have to go to Tesco for that )

    Shoprite, the last straw!

    all our bags get re-used as bin liners anyway (or used to) even M&S dates are very short, you have a job to shop for the weekend on a thursday as the use-by dates are often only 2 days off (we have a couple of preferred places but don't want to be caught in the rush if I tell )

    Manx Journalism At It's Very Best

    Manx Radio had a news item about the weather the other day and a picture of a police car blocking the road at the bungalow, and it would be easy to assume from the picture that the mountain road was closed, which it was not ! (the picture was when it was closed the day before)

    Missing mail ?

    the local aspect wasn't really considered until the locally posted item (was assured they posted it around 2/2/18) didn't arrive which we weren't aware of until we got a final reminder, curious thing was some of the bank things from accross were in the original window envelope but in an outer envelope with hand written address.

    Missing mail ?

    does anyone else think they may be missing mail in the post ? We have had a few letters supposedly sent to us which have never arrived, (from UK) I'm still trying to get a matched pair of bank card and pin number after 3 attempts :-( today we were assured that an insurance renewal quote was posted a couple of weeks ago which we never received (local) so it's hard to decide if things are going astray in the UK system or IoM Post Do any others have items going missing ?
