    That would appear to be because he is a politician of absolutely no substance whatsoever. Sounds like an angry bully who is just upset that half the nonsense he spouts on social media is challenged by folk who don’t fit into his brain-dead granny farming re-election campaign criteria.

    What an absolute narcissist. He needs to get over himself. There are politicians who receive far more abuse than him and they don't cry about it. In fact, this is kind of a circular economy going on because it's his paranoid claims of being abused on social media and his spamming social media that actually generate criticism of him on social media. Other than that, nobody is really all that interested in commenting about him.

    Dearie me that’s a whole heap of illogical paranoia is that real? I’d have thought the best way to avoid engaging with fake accounts if that is what he wishes to do would be to avoid engaging on a forum where the default option is fake avatars like Manx Forums so it’s hard to see why this forum has been referred to. As I’ve learned though best avoid all mention of him whatsoever to avoid another glitch in the forum matrix.

    The man clearly is having some sort of social media meltdown this week. I don’t see Chris Thomas, or Lawrie Hooper or Skelly publicly moaning about some of the challenges or stick they get on social media. He’s just making himself look like a complete whopper with this public bleat. Clearly it’s all LIES, LIES LIES again whenever he is referred to anywhere online by anyone even if enquirers are being polite and even if what they ask him makes total sense. He also seems to have cultivated some weird obsession about wanting to know who people are even when he freely engages with an anonymous forum like here. Does he want to pop round and put some people straight. If so a worrying mindset perhaps? He probably needs to grow a thicker skin rather than crying in his blog about the fact some folk have dared to challenge him about some of the rubbish and fake news he comes out with online.

    Bollocks. If life was so good in the dales or wherever, why come here. They earned their money over there, but retirement is shite in UK, so came here and want it on a plate. Shame the boats are not that reliable as to go Every Morning. Are those people not embarrassed to be seen as scroungers ?

    The people who were complaining on Facebook about delays in getting X-ray results were genuine enough to put their names to their complaints. It was on yesterday.

    I think it means transexual, whatever that means? Possibly someone who identifies as a person of the opposite sex to that which they were born? Or it seems it can also mean transgender, someone who has had the job done? All too much for me! http://www.michianaglbtcenter.org/difference-transgender-transexual/

    Indeed - man who posts on anonymous forum states that he won’t be responding to anonymous people who ask him any questions! He wants to post on here but gets angry when people question the rubbish he posts so he has to resort to classic gaslighting techniques that people with psychopathic tendencies tend to deploy to try to make other people look wrong not them. It generally works on idiots.

    The point your missing here BC, is that even if you put the dealers up against the wall, that won't put a hot meal in little Miguel's tummy. It's poverty that's little Miguel's problem, and for the dealers he's an economic opportunity.

    The whole purpose of home delivery is to increase market share, as is 24/7 opening. Its to offer a service to people who cannot shop during normal hours, or are housebound, or plain lazy, or penny pinching. I'm in the final category, I think. £50 a year, £1 a week, is less than the fuel I'd spend and pushing a trolley around, and getting stuff from the top shelves, isn't easy from a wheelchair. Choice is more limited, because not everything is on line. That means I probably don't spend as much, less impulse buying. As I still travel a lot I can shop whilst away, placing my order, so it arrives just as I get back. Its public knowledge I did some licensing work for Tesco. I asked about the picking policy. Its longest date stuff, not short date stuff.

    This news is years old. I remember someone sending me the cutting. Someone I used to work with told me that if you think something happened 2 years ago then double it and add 2 years so I’m guessing it’s 6 years out of date.

    My learned friend as ever makes a valid point or even points most forcibly. However, Mine own submission and indeed inspiration relates to the alleged motto of the Bedfords aka Dukes of Bedford of Woburn Abbey. My source is a humble souvenir consisting of a model stag's head in plastic mounted on a wooden shield signed by an earlier but now deceased Duke of Bedford in his own hand along with the words "Que Sera Sera""..ie the family motto. It is written in the latter format. One is inclined to think that Jacob Rees Mogg would incline to the motto Que Sera Sera as signed by a Duke of Bedford, he (JRM) being of the 18th Century and inclined to favour or at least flatter the aristocracy. On the other hand if one visits Woburn Abbey one can see the motto in variations "Che Sara Sara" and "Ke Sera Sera" mounted and inscribed in various locations including a mausoleum... The Duke of Bedford who first opened up Woburn Abbey to the public often quoted the motto "Que Sera Sera" hastily adding that he did not own the rights to the song. I merely drew my inspiration such as it be from these sources...

    http://www.porterin.gov.im/s.nl/sc.15/category.5/ctype.SS/SS.5/.f new plans restaurant, exhibition area (I dunno) 159 car spaces, retail and apartments. would love to see this area rejuvenated, Port Erin needs investment, it’s slowly happening. It’s got the best beach and has brilliant summer evenings (winter is a shit however). Needs one good restaurant, glad we have Little Fish but PE needs more to create that spark.

    Yes I agree. We are now second class citizens in our own country. New workers arriving here get a 12 month NI break and their employer gets their relocation expenses paid. I’ve had sod all for 30 years except paying tax and NI at the full rate for almost nothing. I’m starting to feel like a right mug.

    It was around 60,000 or something when I was growing up, never seemed to be underpopulated, we had pretty much everything we needed with some genuine skilled workers etc brought in like doctors etc. and some seasonal workers I think It worked pretty well. It was around the 30,000 mark for most of our history before that over the centuries. I think it's around 85,000 now going by the amount of cars on the road it doesn't seem to be rapidly depopulating.

    These fluctuating stats are pretty worthless, we go slightly up or down so what? - we went up by thousands and thousands in just a few decades - which seemed to result in our quality of life reducing and loss of facilities -most leisure buildings, hotels etc. seemed to get turned into offices or apartments, look at the state of the hospital for example - how many have contributed to it ?

    hmmm, a new company turned up to build the hospital too.

    I will probably get ban number 9 for this, but, I listen to "talking heads" more or less every day, as I like the program and have a lot of respect for Stu Peters. However, the biggest moaners and whingers about life on our Isle of Man are people with quite strong northern English accents. I have listened for years now and nothing has changed. The moaners are not local and have probably come here to save tax and take advantage of our wonderful island and what is has to offer. How dare they all moan that they cant get their bad back sorted in a week. After all, they have paid into the system all their lives ( about £10 per week) Waited 20 years for an MRI cause I have a sore tummy. Got a sore throat and had to wait 5 years for an ultra sound. We have a pretty good system here, but the snowflakes need to get a grip and stop wasting the time of medics who are busy enough treating serious needs. Some may benefit by going home and fighting their own system and maybe then, they will see how well we have it here in comparison.

    This isn't actually quite correct. The weekly cap on contactless only works for weeks ending on a Sunday So if you were visiting from (say) Friday to Thursday, you end up paying seven daily caps rather than one weekly one. As the weekly cap is usually equivalent to five daily ones, you'd end up paying for two full days you didn't need to. For example the Zone 1-3 weekly cap is £40 and the daily one £8 so relying on capping would cost an extra £16 unless you started on a Monday. You're better putting a weekly Travelcard (which is the same price as the weekly cap) onto an Oystercard and using that, because that can start any day of the week. Of course you might also wonder why Bus Vannin can't also adjust the price structure of Go cards so that regular users are encouraged to use the buses more, but that's another story.
