    Hey, Mini's handled really well and had great drum brakes, as long as you looked after them. They were great fun to drive, best car ever!

    Steam Packet to be sold

    And therein lies the problem with many many government positions, including politicians, particularly in the UK.

    Rally Under Threat...

    The TT has a whole motorsport department who are actively trying to make it happen, the rally is largely left to its own devices and depends on volunteers to deliver it.

    Plans for lord street

    Yes, but it is an eyesore along with those other sites.

    Plans for lord street

    I have to admit that I think that the bus station should have been refurbished and reorganised as a proper transport hub but This to me is really encouraging. Here are some better images from the BBC... https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-45113659

    Plans for lord street

    It looks great and will be a huge improvement to the town, I've no idea what the naysayers are on about? What would they like to see on the run down site? I hope it encourages further development in a similar vein.

    Farmers in drought 'crisis'?

    http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=42262&headline=Three years for farms to recover from drought&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2018 A bit more on the subject.

    Bum slapper has to be nice to all

    What about "I'm not going out with you if you're wearing that tie"?

    Farmers in drought 'crisis'?

    When you look at the land given over to farming and the amount of local produce available, you have to ask what on earth is going on? We seem to be more worried about pleasing Tesco than creating a viable market for our own food and making ourselves more sustainable and self sufficient. It's easier to pay farmers to keep the fields and hedgerows tidy than to create a proper agricultural policy. If other countries have a bad harvest, we are going to be the first to suffer, despite us having a milder climate!

    Steam Packet Ireland

    Same here Dilli, and the flights have always been full too? The poor service caused me to miss two family funerals too, they don't even let them get cold over there before they are buried mind you!

    Athol Street police presence

    This is possibly some sort of exercise? If there was any danger to the public, the area would be cleared. They do all sorts of training scenarios so why not this?

    Steam Packet Ireland

    I know of several people who say it is cheaper to book Easyjet via Manchester to Belfast than use the IoM service? Maybe the SPCo could do a tie up with a ferry operating from Heysham or Liverpool to offer special combined fares for those who need to get to Ireland? It may be cheaper than putting on a ferry but a bit of a long drag.

    Farmers in drought 'crisis'?

    I'm not anti farmer and support Manx agriculture but having been to the South of England and seen the effects of the recent hot weather there, there is no comparison whatsoever to the condition of the island's countryside? Is this a chance for a three year handout? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=42213&headline=In the Manx Independent: Drought leads to crisis for farmers&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2018
