    Ronaldsway aircraft co

    I think their current round of redundancies is more about adapting to new technologies and getting rid of older skill bases. But likely they now face this newer bigger threat like all manufacturers.

    There's a very real crisis approaching the UK aerospace industry...Brexit is literally only 9 away months from now. https://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/jun/18/aviation-industry-eu-blocks-talks-to-avert-no-deal-brexit-crisis How can any manufacturer deal with this knowing parts might become invalid? This is serious shit...the reality of Brexit.

    Red Cross lose contract for patient transfer

    Like the horse tram operations ...most of the real costs of the operation can be hidden by BV as 'already in.place'. In other words bullshit economics, bullshit vehicle operation costs and pensioned jobs. How can that remotely be cheaper than a charity...makes me wonder. It's a fraud on the taxpayer in my view.

    IOM Govt...An Ineptocracy

    I'm convinced now more than ever that we currenly live on an island ran as an ineptocracy. Ineptocracy (in-ep-toc’-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

    Steam Packet to be sold

    They really need to write the loan element off and immediately drop their fares IMO...if as they say this purchase is to benefit the people of the island. Otherwise it will just be a cash cow feeding government pensions. As for Beecroft...she's cried 'Wolf!' so often in the past year...she's lost all credibility. We have no effective opposition to govt...yet again.

    Gaming "Addiction" - Why aren't Parents to blame?

    I know a woman that spends 20 or more hours a week glued to feckin soaps. The whole world seems addicted to TV. It's the best dumb-down mechanism ever invented. 400 channels of mostly shite. 5 of those hours a week for 5 years and you could speak 3 new languages fluently.
