William Kennish

40 posts in this topic

I'm sure he was a nice bloke and did loads of good stuff, but who has ever heard of Billy Kennish?

 

Oh, and you Mr Rodan, President of Tynwald, I don't belive you, I bet you'd never heard of him, not until this jolly little trip was organised for you, and a civil servant had fed you the blah blah:

As you said Steve, "I'm sure WIlliam would have been amazed"

The sheer ignorance of sending a sweaty sock to represent the Manx people was as bad as placing him in the position of speaker.

Still plenty of cash for jollies it would appear.

Would you prefer we didn't send someone? It's not expensive to go to New York, couple of the neighbours near me have just gone themselves.

 

If there's a chance we can get some Americans who think they have Manx blood to come here, then go for it.

While it may not be expensive to fly to New York if you book early and fly economy, I'd imagine flying at short notice and business class is.

Yes, I have to say I am less ignorant this afternoon than I was this morning. I'll look that book out.

 

There have been past threads here on famous Manx people. BeeGees, Bernie Moffat (?) and that mutiny of the Bounty fella seemed to loom large, and on further looking the lad Kennish was mentioned.

 

Well, I suppose this thread has done its bit to bring William Kennish to rightful prominence.

Was it short notice and business class then?

But The Teapot is right. Business class short notice would have been a couple of grand.
