    Listen to what is said,(jokingly or not) at 5 mins 50 secs in the youtube video,

    Careful dilli, you are morphing into Albert Albert and I are complete opposites on this topic, believe me. Albert is probably in the pub now buying Derek's drinks for him.

    It's Douglas, not fucking Dublin or Dubai. We are a small island, not a big city. Get real Clown Dog.
  6. Been back to the Hawthorn several times since the above post and have been impressed on every occasion. Was there again today for an early evening meal and I still cannot find fault with anything. Great food and service again. Why can't the other food pubs be as good as this ?

    How is JW's post, 'selfish' and 'blinkered' dilli? It seems a fairly lateral statement to me. He asked a pertinent question in an objective manner: they cost a fortune and there's no real, solid evidence that their cost justifies their existence, in their present forms so, are they worth it? There's plenty who'd agree that the cost, in the current financial climate, could be better spent elsewhere. If collectively the losses amount to say, a million a year, that's a consultant or two. Or half a dozen degree level nurse specialists rather than a knackered rescue engine, or a new braking system, or constant road improvements to the race-track and other hidden expenses. You maintain they should continue to be subsidised by the tax-payer, and very likely many would agree with your viewpoint, that they are worth propping up. They are our heritage and worth keeping. On the flip side of that there are many who consider they are by now fading monuments to a bygone era that really only appeals to an ever-dwindling market, however quaint and nostalgic they might be. The TT aside, of course, but even then, will we ever have an honest figure of how much it really costs? The issue needs addressing, objectively. I wonder what J W's views are on the 6 or7 million pounds paid to farmers for doing fuck all. If that was spent on health and education it would be a positive move. Wood and Trees springs to mind.

    Ah so. What do you "take away" from the experience.

    I am really, Dilli seems happy to accept that all procedures were followed in the case of the woman and the voucher, but not in the case of your employment by the same body? There is absolutely no connection or parallel between the two.

    It is a 24 hour period, not really a daily thing I imagine.

    Do we really need anything nice? Can't we just go to work/school 7 days a week and directly home afterwards with no days off? It would save a lot of money... Well said. I can't believe some of the posts in this thread, especially John's. I never imagined him being so selfish and blinkered.
