    Tax avoidance?

    I guess it depends on how fast they are being driven? In my opinion, we are not quite there with pure electric vehicles yet, too many issues to be sorted out. I much prefer the hybrid which is well proven and the hydrogen fuel cell for practicality.

    Tax avoidance?

    The difficulty arises when you want to take the car to the UK and undertake a longish journey. I believe that the Teslas which circulated at the TT Zero struggled on the mountain and particularly on the second lap they did?

    You'd need two to do a lap of the island.

    Are they taking the pi55

    I have read of concerns that kids can be targeted by bullies/thieves who can force them to 'swap' phones to obtain a better one?

    A bit like putting a plumber in charge of complicated surgery at Nobles.

    £104k to spend a penny?

    That always amazes me, following the two world wars, when the island was at its zenith in tourism, there must have been countless disabled people who had suffered injury during the fighting. We didn't cater for them at all!

    £104k to spend a penny?

    This sounds a tad expensive for this little building, or am I out of touch with building costs these days? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=41158&headline=£104,000 to help people spend a penny (or 20p in fact)&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2018

    TT 2018

    That is an independent inquiry being conducted by ACU Events themselves. I don't know whether there will be an official inquiry by IoM Govt. or the police but I'm sure there will be?

    TT 2018

    Surely the police would have been involved in something like that if it happened?

    Gubay v Drower et al

    What an arse, as I said, it's surprising he had a peaceful death!

    Oh really, you seem to be misinformed?

    Gubay v Drower et al

    I just came across this blog which was shared by Kate Beecroft on Facebook, it paints a rather disturbing picture of the Isle of Man and its handling of the man who was a law unto himself due to his wealth. https://newsnightblog.wordpress.com/author/newsnightblog/ It's pretty long and older members probably remember this sad tale which resulted in the untimely death of the man who exposed him on a similar forum to this. I'm surprised Gubay was allowed to die a peaceful death!
