  1. UK Budget - any impact on the IOM?

    Isn't 3.66 requiring proactive reporting though?
  2. What's going on at nobles

    My neighbour here in Cornwall, 73, was sectioned at 02:00 on a Wednesday morning - services were superb. Despite there being no emergency room in Cornwall or Devon they took him to Somerset overnight. Alzheimer's + some bipolar disorder, maybe due to meds - he'll probably not come home.
  3. Public Sector Pension Liability

    There was quite a serious discussion about this a year or two ago - using figures available at that time a 10% increase in the basic income tax rate wouldn't cover the impending deficit. The sums may well be available on MF but I can't be bothered to dredge them up.
  4. UK Budget - any impact on the IOM?

    Unlikely - not enough wiggle room for a lowering and an increase would stifle consumer confidence.
  5. The Last Film You Saw....

    Bloody good film
  6. Public Sector Pension Liability

    It's all in the government accounts / pink book. 1% gets you nowhere in a hurry.
  7. Public Sector Pension Liability

    Be prepared for terms such as 'solidarity fund', 'common pension fund' etc. I've been watching this debacle closely for ~8 years, the NI pension fund will be at least very vulnerable.
  8. Zimbabwe

    Let's hope they send his wife to jail for raiding the country to finance her lavish shopping and real-estate.
  9. New Rules

    Sad but true.
  10. Manx Radio

    I'm unsure I'm afraid.
  11. So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Which is not a bad thing for the UK & Brexit negotiations. In all probability another German election.
  12. Manx Radio

    She wasn't all that old I think - I'm sure I was at school with her brother who was one year older than myself? (Was a long time ago on an island far, far away in a very forbidding institution.)
  13. Taxpayers to dig for £20M for Liverpool Dock

    And those who use the boats, i.e. everyone.
  14. We are Saved - The Airport Gateway To The Rescue!

    That's actually what happened, but asking at the front about this was met with rudeness and disinterest.
  15. Raymotors goes in to liquidation

    Still closed?
