    When The Fun Stops...

    And one in Ramsey....

    Steam Packet to be sold

    Ah, but we're getting the name - priceless, I tell you, priceless. Cal-Mac vs IoMSPCo....no comparison, even at £124M for two knackered tubs. Not.

    Don't give them ideas FFS. They'll be banning locals departing at all to limit damage to the "local spend". It's a wonder they haven't shut the internet down to cut the online shopping. Mind, if Corkish had had his way....

    Steam Packet to be sold

    Have we not already done so, to the tune of £124M? Or does he not see it that way...?

    Like they did about Longworth's Cabbage, Dilli?

    But speaking sincerely Stu, I genuinely don't understand how these statistics are arrived at. Walk into any shop, establishment or building site on the IoM (in my experience) outside of TT/FOM periods and what you'll hear playing on a radio is 3FM, Energy, R1, R2. And I've never personally encountered any survey that asked me what I listen to. Or anybody I know AFAIK. Which is peculiar on a small island because I and plenty of people I know have been approached for DfE/travel surveys at the Sea Terminal for instance. Unless the statistics include the piped music and the adverts that Chris Williams voices in Shoprite?

    Not just the DBC. Island wide.

    Pinewood problems

    Well, if the article headline and figures are accurate, it's been very successful...

    Pinewood problems

    Can't see anything on the site at the mo; doubtless somebody will be along to say that it's nonsense. Perhaps Allan and Eddie would like to make themselves available for comment?

    Army training, leadership training. Taking control of the situation. We hope?

    How many people listen to Manx Radio outside of the TT...?

    They do when it comes to giving money to themselves or their mates. Plenty of precedents.

    Mr Pugh must be feeling the pinch....

    Thieving airport posties

    Straight back to Treasury IIRC, Albert. At a set £2M a year regardless of how much the PO actually makes. Gotta pay those CS pensions somehow.

    Interesting analysis on Manx independence by Paul Beckett

    Why do these immigrants find UK so attractive? Is it just our benefits system? Do other EU member states not have attractive benefits systems? Or if those other member states' benefits systems have stricter criteria, why can those criteria not be adopted by UK?
