    http://Even by MR Standards today, Sundays offering has been a total waste of two hours, where do they get all these experts from ?

    Jump on the bandwagon time again, this time it should be prudent to follow the UK lead and await results of Scotland's lead before blindly leaping in and increasing prices on what is an already expensive commodity on this Island, we are already paying premium prices for nearly everything here !!

    Save the Sea from plastics ?

    It does not have to alter cost or anything ND as they already produce them so it is purely down to a change in marketing policy.

    Save the Sea from plastics ?

    It is shameful that the creamery is still producing and selling litres of milk in plastic containers at a time when there is massive concern regarding plastics in the seas. There are paper containers available but not all outlets stock both.

    Never mind it provided two MR presenters a nice tax payer funded jolly which was totally OTT.

    Biosphere Bolloc*s?

    The last time I wrote this sentence I received some very nasty comments, but I shall do it again ! people/families are leaving the rock at an alarming rate and it is mainly because of the high cost of everything ! The beautiful scenery is not beautiful anymore, and as for the adage "A Lovely Place To Work And Live" well it just does not hack it anymore, The Island sadly is on its uppers and all our highly paid politicos can do is to continue lining their own pockets. More Stealth taxes is merely exacerbating the problem, and our so called Gov't haven't got a clue what to do about it, Sad but true.
  9. Ever since Longworth took over he got rid of all the time served members of staff, who knew what they were doing, and replaced them with cheaper but inexperienced members of staff ! this practice was carried out everywhere MER/BUSES/STEAM RAILWAY. Hence the fact the whole Department is a shambolic disgrace !!

    Neil D ,These people are friends of mine Husbands, Wives, and Children, all of whom have been finding it harder and harder to maintain a decent standard of living on this Island due to every increasing costs of everything. Fuel, food, car tax, and numerous other stealth taxes that have been imposed over the last few years. And now our masters have decided that they would like to squander million upon millions of money they keep telling us we don't have, the place is in a total meltdown which non of our politicos seem to give a flying-fig about. Everyone I talk to has similar tales to tell about their friends doing similar so the numbers are becoming quite substantial.!!

    I personally am aware of 8 families that have left the Island in this present year, fed up with the now, getting extortionate, cost of living on the Island, and not for a holiday but permanently !

    This is yet another example of the reason, people are getting off this over governed Island and staying off.

    What A Farce !!

    Farce Day has arrived

    What A Farce !!

    Bad enough that our politicos are not taking the opportunity to cut down on Leg-Co numbers, but listening to their posturing's on MR this past week, how they are going to select replacements from this bunch is beyond comprehension. The common reason for standing is blatantly the grand a week they stand to pick up Do the MHK's pension rights apply to these unnecessary drain on our economy does anyone know ?

    Great Advice

    You can also be frail and elderly and freeze and go hungry on the Island at the moment through pride !
