  1. Past hour
  2. IOM Newspapers could easily get a v junior secretary to go through the comments once a day and delete all the spammers. But, no ... Like much else about their organisation, it all has the air of not hugely enthusiastic amateurs.
  3. Well, quite. That's why their balls are itching so badly.
  4. The guys parents should sue the DoI, and Jeff Robinson should be in jail.
  5. When we headed across during summer holidays I took out cover with the RAC on a monthly direct debit and then cancelled it when I got back to the island. So cover only cost me about twenty quid or thereabouts.
  6. Today
  7. LOL!! “ Friday 15th October saw over 60 musicians entertain an enthusiastic audience in the sixth annual concert performed jointly by the QEII High School Wind Band and the Isle of Man Wind Orchestra. Both bands played a short programme each during the first part of the evening that featured music from John Williams, Adele, G.F. Handel, Neil Diamond and British composer Nigel Hess amongst others. The bands then combined to perform together which this year featured music from ‘Stage and Screen’. The joint performance began with Mr Dunderdale from the IOMWO conducting the theme music from ‘Wallace and Gromit’ before moving on to Leonard Bernstein’s ‘West Side Story’. Mr Dunderdale then handed the baton over to QEII’s Mr Kinley who directed both bands through the evening’s finale of music from 'Mamma Mia’ and ‘Les Miserables’. The evening was once again a great success and raised over £600 for QEII High School Association! Further pictures of the concert can be found on the school website by following the link below – https://qe2.sch.im/”

    COP21

    I really think you need to stop criticising and get involved in some way so that your amazing ideas and plans can be turned into reality. There are legco seats up for grabs now or you have nearly five full years to prepare for a Keys place assuming there aren’t any by elections. Good luck and we all look forward to you making a valuable contribution to our island
  9. There must be sackings and charges as a result of this? The verdict seems very lenient towards those involved at DOI when so many people had flagged up the fact that this was a danger before the tragic incident had even occurred. I am absolutely fuming and I didn’t know the guy. Sincere condolences to everyone who did and I kind of feel this warrants a real public outcry before this happens somewhere else and to another family. Let us not forget that only a few weeks ago these morons installed that insane crossing in Kirk Michael and have installed numerous “crossings” on the prom which are clearly going to be the scene of an accident at some point.
  10. Yesterday
  11. @The Voice of Reason Apparently the £350m per week to the NHS by Bozo's own admission has yet to materialise. If ever.... I noticed today Downing Street were trying to put a positive spin on the Liz Truss "negative benefit to the UK" trade deal with New Zealand. Notwithstanding that complete and utter failure what £positives has brexit brought to the Great British Public? No speculative bollox please. Real £numbers. Thanks.
  12. And today's Rob Callister award goes to... As I have remarked before, if the DoI have one purpose on this Earth, it is making the Corpy look good.
  13. When will they work out that 99% of the Manx population just think they’re shit and it doesn’t really matter how much poor spin they want to put on it when we all know they’re just shit.

    COP21

    The fuel will be eliminated. Vehicles will either be electric or hydrogen. Even then I’m sure the green lobby will whinge that the power which is generated to create the electricity isn’t green enough. The IOM is going to have to shut down the power station. Perhaps we should have tidal power, solar farms and windmills on the Mountain Road. We can harvest the hot air and bullshit from Tynpotwald, a readily and plentiful supply available.
  15. Figured it was something like that when I googled the title 😂

    COP21

    Motorsport is not banned anywhere in the world for climate reasons yet. The fuels will get cleaner.

    COP21

    The UK Government will introduce rafts of new legislation as a result of COP and climate change talks. The HOK and Tynpotwald will sit and hold endless debates, consultations and adoption of the UK legislation. Hardly any original thought is there? An original idea, which the IOMG won’t do is to ban the TT and motorsports, like Rallying and Car Enthusiasts Rallies. Endless carbon emissions polluting the environment. Also the IOMG is hardly setting a good example in its planning policies, which encouraged large scale building of residential homes, without adequate provisions such as sewerage, and drainage in place. The IOMG is a great success story and example when it demonstrated to the world it’s readiness to allow an application to chop down mature elm trees in St Marks. A recent planning application by the Starship Enterprise to chop down trees at Nobles Park, a green lung of Douglas, so they can create a TT access road through the park to the Grandstand. Looks good to the COP audience? What would Greta say? Bet Alf would want his picture taken with Greta, then planning permissions for huge housing developments in areas of outstanding Manx beauty will be approved.
  18. Well if there are "pros and cons", that surely implies there is a question.

    COP21

    What is the Isle of Man's minimal contribution to decarbonising going to achieve? Yet we are about to waste a fortune in adopting all sorts of token gestures when the real legislation and action will be done for us.
  20. Another impeccable day of Loganair performance. Rounded the day off with the last Liverpool leaving 2.5hrs late.
  21. I want to return an item to Amazon and have been told to go to the nearest Hermes returns shop the the barcode supplied. However the Hermes webpage says there is no such thing.

    COP21

    What’s the Isle of Man’s attendance going to achieve? Nothing. If the UK agree targets and a plan, the IOM, the devolved administration’s and crown dependencies will do as they are told. If Boris bans gas boilers the IOM will follow suit, same goes with ending the sale of petrol and diesel vehicles. All this junket will give is for our delegates to show boat, preen themselves and act like big cheeses, as if they are something important. Then will come the dick waving competition against Jersey and Guernsey, When the IOM starts boasting and singing like a canary, it gets noticed by the civil service in Westminster. I hope the island isn’t clobbered financially again - perhaps the VAT sharing arrangement revisited? Or the reciprocal health arrangements?
  23. I don't find it surprising in the least. What I do find surprising is that our government (who are supposed to be for our benefit) decided to say yes to those terms without bothering to find out what their charges are! That would be bad enough for them to do with any private company, let alone one that has a proven history of profiteering and had very recently asked for three times as much. I don't believe for one minute that MG are just breaking even. If they were why would they be so cagey with information on their finances?
  24. But if you don't have any luck on Athol Street or Prospect Hill you can always try somewhere else.
  25. The IoM has something of a magnetism for them.
  26. I was hoping for a more serious answer. It’s a serious question If you wanted to, as a novice how would you make your first purchase.? You can go to the pub and buy a pint, go to the supermarket and buy some cigarettes. But in the illegal drug world how do you enter the market?
  27. It can be very difficult to keep spammers off certain sites. At least that's what sexygirl212 told me in a personal message.
