  1. Manx Radio

    Early days when John Coghlan was on drums. One time a resident in Ballasalla.
  2. road menders done good!

    Perhaps they should turn their attention on road into Ballasalla opposite school.
  3. Public 'prepared' to pay for healthcare

    But does everybody else? What do Jersey and Guernsey spend?
  4. Pedantic Manx police state strikes again

    Probably nothing other than a newly created unnecessary position.
  5. Pedantic Manx police state strikes again

    But I believe has some sort of new job at the hospital.
  6. Mere Child Becomes Health Minister

    I've been a patient at Walton Neurological Centre for four weeks re a head injury. Observation for two weeks prior to operation. Successful and great treatment and care. Had been waiting for transfer back to Nobles for almost a week. NO BEDS AVAILABLE. Cannot fly and return has to be by boat. Getting very frustrated so yesterday emailed David Ashford and within 24 hours a return all sorted on the boat from Birkenhead tomorrow. Still no bed available so it was okayed that I could return home. The Minister 's intervention was much appreciated along with his email updates as I had visions of languishing here for many more days, probably at great cost to IOM health service. Also the patient transfers team on the Island who swiftly made the arrangements.

    Well qualified to waste even more money then.
  8. Be quiet, my Hamster is asleep!

    I've seen my cat frighten itself with its own farts.
  9. A popular decision

    Well JW I've been here in Walton Neurological Centre for just over three weeks now. Had a fall in October. Two weeks just under observation. Then they decided to operate on the brain. Recovery seems to be going well. Only problem now is waterworks - with catheter. Won't let me fly home because of brain op. so it's a tedious return on boat with escort hopefully next week. Perhaps with a few more days in Nobles. Can't fault the treatment or facilities here. Goodness knows what this is costing the IOM. Wishing you well John. (RJ)
  10. A popular decision

    Not hearing much from Derek Flint. Another totally unnecessary appointment.

    For me it was anyone else other than Gawne and Cregeen. Seem to have gone from the frying pan to the fire with Moorhouse.

    None deserved.

    A man full of local knowledge you are John. Good to catch-up on our taxi ride together earlier this evening!

    And so they should have.
  15. is the mountain road shut?

    Not much help for me when they say my location is Lowerhouse in N Ireland. Any way of changing that?
