    Monstrous old scrounger

    Trawl the web for jokes and interesting articles that they then forward to their buddies at the next desk. Watch internet tv. Especially when the World Cup was on. That takes up quite a lot of the day. And not just Markwell. Don't ask me how I know.

    More IOM Government Spin

    The IoM doesn't even appear on the map in that Brexit article....

    More IOM Government Spin

    I think what popularity he initially gleaned was in his initial "opposition" stance; asking awkward questions, making life uncomfortable. Alf Cannan was the same, ripping into Eddie Teare's Budget spiel. And Chris Robertshaw with his exposé of the IRIS debacle that was promply quietly shelved upon receipt of Ministerial position. As soon as they get their "feet under the establishment table" and take the CM's shilling - All change like a light switch.

    Reynoldsway part 2. £80 million to spend on ports

    Cue an announcement for more millions to be spent at Reynoldsway, let alone Douglas Harbour. Gotta keep up with Joneses in this financial dick swinging contest.

    Tram & Bus Incidents

    I think that incident is too recent to be one of those (given the speed that these investigations progress at). As I've posted previously, I reckon these cases might be tram related.

    Reynoldsway part 2. £80 million to spend on ports

    8000? My arse. I witnessed one tender off-loading (loud) American tourists from a cruise ship one evening while picking up rels at the Sea Terminal. There couldn't have been more than 20 of them. Ok, it was only one trip I saw but even if you multiply that by say, 5(?) tender runs per ship visit, that's only 100.

    Good job we are not Malta

    Agreed. And as SMUJ has posted (and I've posted before), too much of Malta (IMHO) looks like a bombsite. But my observation was about the Cypriot road infrastructure and its obvious investment? Just going back to the point that Derek F alluded to - To the average man-in-a-Manx- street; What are the real benefits of our "independence" stance? Genuine question. We're not, and can't be, self-supporting in any way? Other than spuds and milk. The only one that jumps out for me immediately is a lower rate of Direct Taxation. Which is likely more than compensated for by Indirect Taxation as far as Govt revenue goes? And if that's it - then who are the real beneficiaries of us being an "independent" nation?

    Cyprus is the same. Millions of Euros-worth of new road infrastructure, I drove on some of it a couple of years back, dual carriageways, the lot. Then you come back to Independence Central and the DOI.....

    Steam Packet to be sold

    Yes. All those aerosols of paint and boxes of AA batteries.....

    Good job we are not Malta

    Yes, they were certainly sharper than us in that respect. They weren't cutting off their noses to spite their faces on a futile "independence" jaunt.
