    Isle of Man - World Leader..

    I would go for 300MB/s at the cabinet - every cabinet. Due to the EU we have good internet down here, lots of people work from home in Cornwall. Slightly off-tack - the fiber link to the UK is aging, I think it'll need replacing soon as the cable doesn't stay 'good' for ever, 20-25 years is an industry norm.

    30MB/s would not put the island in the top ten, see https://www.akamai.com/us/en/multimedia/documents/state-of-the-internet/q1-2017-state-of-the-internet-connectivity-report.pdf 30MB/s is a decent lower target. I'm rural and can get 300MB/s full duplex if I pay for 200m of fibre into the house from the green box down the road. Howard's deluded.

    Cobblers, Blair was a good man who made mistakes. May's a traitor to hard working people such as myself.

    Manx Radio

    Local radio in Cornwall and Devon is very good indeed, as are the commercials such as Pirate FM.

    No, I have photos of the classes my mother taught at Ballaugh school from 1969 onward. Shirley a mistake?

    Odd replay that. FWIW there was a big recession in the 60's, fewer kids in classes in the early 70's.

    No. The rule is - keep headlines simple or you'll lose the reader.
