    Onchan residents group

    Depends where you are in Onchan . If you live at Port Jack for instance you have a chip shop and covenience store right by you. 4 eating places at the bottom of the hill. You are in walking distance to Strand Street. Not a bad location.

    Rally Under Threat...

    I can see an angling competition being a success. But golf? No, golfers are wealthy, they would want a decent hotel and good food.

    Good job we are not Malta

    I've just read this article about Malta ..... https://www.bloomberg.com/news/features/2018-09-11/why-the-eu-is-furious-with-malta?cmpid=socialflow-twitter-businessweek&utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_content=businessweek&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social The reputational damage of corruption, money laundering, despotism etc which can afflict a small island is potentially very serious. A good job we are whiter than white in all these respects.

    Steam Packet to be sold

    I am sure the idea was for the steamy to remain an independent, commercial enterprise. The govt bought out the old shareholders and are now the new shareholders. Fairly simple really.

    Offshore Banking

    The Isle of Man compliance regime is so difficult, it is very hard to even open a bank account. Doing almost any financial business is difficult, certainly enough to put many off even thinking of using the IOM.

    I've done just that before now.
