    A woman is an occasional pleasure, but a cigar is always a smoke.
  1. This is way more attention than anything Farage says deserves. Except, I suppose, whatever the implications of the brexit bollocks he helped orchestrate ends up having on the Isle of Man.
  2. Let me get this straight then, you're not saying that parts of UK cities and towns are 'festering shit holes full of deadbeats, criminals and feral youths', much like, say, parts of Douglas are festering shit holes etc etc, you're saying all UK cities and most UK towns are all, without exception, in their entireties, festering shit holes. (You're section on their alleged lower quality of life for the people who live there compared to the Isle of Man is redundant, given your view that they are all festering shit holes they must have a lower quality of life living as they do in festering shit holes full of criminals etc etc). Had you said that the Isle of Man is a fine place to live although not without it's own patches of shitholery, as are thousands of other places in the British Isles I could have agreed with you, but given the extraordinary stupidity of you characterising an entire country as you have, compared to your pleasant enough but little wind swept outcrop in the Irish Sea, I'll have to disagree. I wouldn't want to be associated with such a backward way of thinking. How the fuck you managed to spend forty three years living in a country and learn nothing about it other than its all a shithole says more about you than it does the UK.
  3. 'The majority'. Where then?
  4. I grew up with the TT and loved it, but maybe sometimes something is so dangerous that people shouldn't be able to do it, even when they want to?

  6. Anyone recall the name of the police sergeant the plod used to send round to address an assembly at DHfB if the us youths were getting a bit above ourselves. Sgt Condra was it? Rumoured to be the actual bircher and spoke as if he regarded all of us a potential birchees. Strode down the school hall after Frank Luckman, big police boots banging on the polished floor. Anyway he scared the shit out of me, and there was fuck all vandalism then.
  7. We had a maths teacher at St Ninians by the name of Tattersall. We called him 'Biff' as in big idle fat fucker....
  8. If you never use a hole in the wall how do you get the cash you prefer to pay with? I go back to a time when if you wanted to draw cash out of the bank you had to write out a cheque to 'self', queue up at the bank and hope they would cash it. Thankfully, times have moved on. (although I can't see me paying for anything with a phone)...
  9. Its impossible to define the “goodness” or “badness” of drugs according to drug type – in the abstract. the balance between potential help and potential harm depends on the person and the circumstances. When I fell off my bike I was glad there was someone pumping me full of opiates. Then again these two silly bastards with heroin up their arses and most likely on their way to the nick neatly demonstrate the downside of opiate use.
  10. I've witnessed the young ones paying for stuff with their mobile phones. In fact I don't know if my children would recognise a bank note if I waved it in front of them. Better tell 'em to avoid Port Erin prom...
  11. Believe me you don't want to be paying to park at a hospital. It cost me sixteen quid when my mother in law fell over her bag and I waited hours at our local A&E for her to be attended to. Last time I was at Nobles I thought you did have to pay and wasted yet more time looking for the parking ticket machine until a kindly ambulance person told me it was free to park there. And for what its worth Nobles car park was absolutely wedged that day. Finally, as soon as you charge to park people will do anything to avoid paying it, mainly by parking on the verges and road sides on the approaches to the hospital. Seeing tight fisted or impoverished injured people falling out of their cars into a hedge a mile or two away from the entrance to the hospital and starting the long crawl to the front door is as common sight round these parts.
  12. Ye Gods! Purchased my first ever alcoholic drink in the Dogs with Mr McAleer (see- forty four years on and I still think of him as Mr McAleer) giving me a long hard look and saying 'I know your father lad'. Wasn't there some talk of Mrs McAleer and Geoff Duke? Anyway they'll never recreate it there was a feel and look all to itself in there. It wasn't a good look but I loved it none the less.
  13. Just shy of three grand a month for my mate's ma to sit in her room all day at the Ellan Vannin home. Not that the staff aren't giving it their best shot and not that some of the residents don't do better there than they would on their own. When she's down to her last thirteen grand sometime next year the government chip in a bit but not as much as the home charges. Then when the last thirteen grand is gone she's out on her ear and hoping the government has a bed for her somewhere on the system.
  14. Not sure any of them are up to the job of defusing this *ahem* explosive situation. How many of them can currently recognise a problem when its walked right up to them and gobbed on their shoes? The usual 'I know, lets throw money at it' response would seem a bit irrelevant really.
  15. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/1488371/MoD-dumped-munitions-in-the-Irish-Sea.html Stone me, that is a shed load of munitions. They're certainly going to need to dig very slowly and carefully...
