  1. Manx Radio

    A little gem from the MR web page this morning: "McGuinness says he's spoke to TAS BMW, Norton and Kawasaki.. "
  2. Mere Child Becomes Health Minister

    I don't think his lack of experience will be a problem, because he can always call on the experience and expertise of a recently retired police officer.
  3. Deepwater for Cruise Ships

    Didn't Ms Reynolds say something like "Build it and they will come", when she was pushing for her runway extension? (Have they come yet?)
  4. Has anyone else noticed........

    ...or like Donald Trump saying "oops, sorry. I didn't mean to press the nuclear button - I thought I was voting for the North Korean entry in the Asiavision Song Contest."
  5. Has anyone else noticed........

    Yes, Helmut.. Many people would have noticed it. So it was not big and brave of Rob Edward to admit his mistake - it was simply an attempt at damage limitation.
  6. What's going on at nobles

    Agreed, 2112. It might also be worth an FOI request. That well-known Beecroft hater, Rob Edward, could be the man for the job. (I still can’t help thinking about the number of “free” prescriptions that could be covered by the annual salary of the new Business and Performance Manager)

    He has been doing it for years. Every time he sees a foreign-looking name, he seems to feel the need to pronounce it in a phoney foreign accent. Problem is that his phoney Spanish accent is the same as his phoney Middle Eastern accent, which is the same as his phoney Russian accent......etc.

    I hear that Mickey Mouse even wears a Rob Callister watch.

    Before Rob Edward became an MHK, I used to think he was quite ok. But the Bushy’s TT logo fiasco, showed him in his true light: At first he said that the whole thing could probably have been cleared up with a phone call to Martin. Then he said that it was actually Martin’s fault for not answering his phone. (This was a blatant lie, as Martin says that he never failed to answer his phone.) Then, a few days later, he said that it was actually the fault of the media for blowing it up out of proportion. Since then, he has continued to go from bad to worse, and seemingly, will stop at nothing to further his own political ambitions. It looks like he is cruising for a Ministry/Chief Ministership/ MBE/Knighthood. Where will it end? – A Kingship? (Actually – King Rob The First has a certain ring to it) Now he comes over as a total buffoon, who is so far up his own @sshole, that he has lost touch with reality. I mean – who really cares if he arrived at the office at 8.04, or 8.05, or 8.06? A simple “I arrived at the office at just after 8am” would suffice. Of the more than 30 members of Tynwald, only 3 have felt the urge to list their qualifications: 1. Mr Coleman. (I used to love “Sportsnight” when he presented it, and his balls are legendary) 2. Spewin’ Juan. (No further comment required!)...... and ....... and ... 3. Good old Rob Edward! (Even Juan Turner didn’t list his Cycling Proficiency Certificate!) My Great Uncle Bertie was shot in the Dardanelles , and got the VD and scar for his activities in Peking, but he didn’t list them amongst his qualifications.
  10. Vision Nine Contract...

    Yes, but probably not the "Old Bill".
  11. Rob callister mhk

    However much it cost, we were robbed! (Or should that be Rob Edwarded?)
  12. Rob callister mhk

    Yes - I thought a few weeks back, that Rob Edward (what a ridiculous affectation that is!) said that he would not post on here in future.
  13. "Errrrrr... errrrrr.. errrrrr.. errrrrr.. errrrrr.. errrrrr.. errrrrr.. errrrrr.. "

    Or, as my old Dad used to say - "He gets my goat" ! (I dunno why. Maybe it is an old Manx expression?)

    The cost of Robbo's suit would buy pre-paid prescription certificates for a pensioner under 75, or a pregnant woman, or a chronic illness sufferer, for more than 6 years.
