    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Woolley, I know you haven’t fallen for all the lies pushed on social media by the leavers, but have a look at the link below, it might (or might not) make you feel better about the E.U., unlikeable entity with crap flag and anthem as it is! https://www.derekthomas.org/news/factcheck-26-questions-eu
  3. That was in the past, no doubt our Tynpotwalders will be salivating at what awaits their tastebuds. I’m surprised our Galloping Gourmet, Rob Callister hasn’t been on the airwaves and social media esposing, the new culinary delights. I’ll be surprised if they truly use local ingredients and in season produce, and would think most of the food would be brought (meat cheaper in the UK) over. I hope they pay their local staff significantly more than the minimum wagers.

    It's better to be in the tent, pissing out...and you can't effect any change when you've exiled and ostracised yourself whilst remaining bound to certain terms and conditions. This period has massively reduced the UK's standing in the international view IMHO. Shown to be a fragmented, divided nation, riven with political and class self-interest incapable of presenting a unified, negotiating front on the most important decision in a generation. Nobody in this world will take the UK seriously again. Unless we send an aircraft carrier to the South China Sea of course It is/has been a watershed. The EU must by now regard UK Govt in the same way as UK Govt regard IoM. A collection of disorganised, backwater, hickey amateurs.

    Are you suggesting the BTCC bosses 'bribe' ITV?

    No you couldn't Yisser Hughes, because - contrary to your avatar - I suspect your balls are too small to risk appearing live on radio.

    Can you please update the gov.im front page?

    It's all a bit pointless once they're dead isn't it? And I tend to feel the same way about it when they are just about gaga and at the dribbling into their soup stage. Sound of stable doors slamming with not a horse in sight and all of that.

    So the end game rolls on. It seems unlikely that the existing deal will be approved next week because both sides think they can get their preferred outcome. I wouldn't be surprised if MV3 never takes place, or if it does it goes down by an even bigger margin than MV2. May will then surely resign, or maybe that will happen sooner if she sees the position is hopeless. I think no deal is highly unlikely because Parliament has already voted it down, and now the EU has allowed more time to legislate otherwise. No crash out next Friday then. Brexiteers should take note. Realistically, the hard Brexit ship sailed when the UK submitted itself to the Article 50 process. It should not have done so, but that ship sailed 2 years ago. As one who has always disdained the EU, I could have lived with the current deal as a start. It's a step in a process and better than being in. I didn't like the transition period inside the customs union (backstop) and I was suspicious as to what it was that was going to replace it in the Future Relationship document. If a customs union was needed in the transition, then why not in the permanent relationship? Conversely, if we could have a permanent relationship without a customs union why was deemed essential in the transition? This was never satisfactorily answered, but on balance, I'd live with that package. I can understand why it was framed the way it was; as something that was actually nobody's ideal but might come to be everybody's compromise. I guess that reckoned without the divisiveness that the EU always invokes in the British. Nobody can see a compromise between entrenched opposing positions. However, I will say that if, as seems likely, the "alternative ideas" from the likes of Corbyn are going to involve being in the customs union and single market with full budget contributions and freedom of movement then that's ludicrous. A bit like signing up to buy a business with no say on its future direction. In that case, and through gritted teeth, I would prefer the revocation of Article 50, and working to clip the monster's wings from within. It would not be a pretty outcome, but it would be better than paying the dues, observing all the rules (more than most EU countries do) with no seat at the table. Welcome to the Hotel California.

    This is gonna sound sarcastic, but I honestly don't mean it to... Where do you stand on OJ?
  13. Not sure if it's the same people but I have been a VIP guest at 3 mgp, sorry classic tt events and the food really wasn't very good ...

  16. Agree. We are living in the past and can't see past the death race as an earner. I cringe every time I hear about a death and that is too often. We don't need the TT. We do need to get some brain power into what we can do to improve our lot, without causing many deaths. Life moves on, but the IOM does not. The TT was a gimmick for tourists, when we had plenty. those days have gone. bikes are too quick and life should be more precious. Not just a tourist attraction like punch and judy. So many people have blood on their hands, but are willing to continue the farce to share that blame.
  17. ....but it did come in on time!!!

    Did they have the DOI in....?

    In particular, given how the event is "promoted", the "unlimited" Mountain Road etc. If they're not insured, they shouldn't turn a wheel off the landing ramp. It's a basic legal requirement and common sense.
  20. We are were we are Dilli. I'd stop the races tomorrow if it were my choice. Let our Govt spend 5 years profit on safety measures, if that doesn't work, stop them! Our Govt claim 3-5 mil profit a year, one of the smaller English circuits spent £ 500,000 on one corner recently!!!

    People need hope. They need a dream. years ago they turned to the church for hope, but now it is the lottery. I am with the ticket buyers.

    It has nothing to do with the Islands image, or the legal fact that this is required. Not having insurance means that immediate compensation for injuries is not available to someone who has, perhaps, been confined to a wheelchair, needing home conversion to facilitate to cope with this. Ten pounds a week, by Court order, on a non insured driver is not going to get the work done!!!
  24. So, let's just focus on the food then. Have "we" done anything at all to try to reduce the death toll.? No, thought not. Why not just make "the course" faster for the headlines and record breakers. Another 6 wives will miss their husbands and more kids will be robbed of their dads. But the show must go on eh ????

    Looks like an extension until the 22nd May if the Withdrawal Agreement is approved by the HoC next week, and an extension until the 12th April if the Withdrawal Agreement is not approved.
  26. So it'll be a doner kebab with a drizzle of minted yoghurt and red amaranth with three sticks of chive strategically placed on top??? Not really being fair, it does look from the write up that they may be a cut above the usual burger n chips, Good luck to them but could it have been done truly local? Probably! Maybe it's down to price, something we tax payers cannot argue with if they are employing local? Might have look at their recruitment site!!!
