  3. That is a mighty impressive substrata, and It was well contained too. Looking at the excavations it seems there was little wrong with the foundation layers, certainly none of the horror stories that were put about.

  6. I didnt think it too bad, it showed the inmates as the mugs they really are, I liked the statement from the Governor something like " Being sent to prison is the punishment , we [the regime] are not here to punish further" The link scenes of the Island were sympathetic and picturesque, I didn't see the shock horror some express, mild amusement with some shaking of the head at the idiots. I don't reckon we will see an upsurge in criminal migration because the "bird" is easy, but you cannot tell with our master criminals.

  7. I've seen massive high street projects lasting ages in the UK, people just get on with it, it has to be done. The fact is, nobody is preventing access to these businesses, people just have to walk a little further. What does everyone think should have been done to mitigate any disruption? We all knew what was happening and when, did the businesses not know what we knew? They are simply out for a bit of compo, they are probably manufacturing their claims now and fudging the accounts. Make enough noise and the government will fold.

  9. I’m glad I’m not the only one who spotted this.. I was sure she was one of the guards featured in it.. then there she is dressed as a prisoner.. perhaps someone from the prison could answer as to why this was done? Is it perhaps that they have actually got more officers than prisoners and they needed to make up the prisoner numbers..? How did they think this would not be spotted..?? perhaps it’s because the people responsible thought they could fool the viewers just like they are fooling the law abiding tax payers of the island into thinking this prison is anything more than a holiday camp ..

  19. Not if we where to use prisoners from the Jurby Hilton, that would reduce the cost of labour, and time, conciderably, ( government savings ) !!

  20. If Manx Telecom pitch it just right then they might get the Government to plough millions of pounds in to keeping Manx.net running... it's an old service used by very few people and probably a great tourist attraction by some!

  28. Howard's talking out of the wrong hole again. There's nothing progressive about running a holiday camp style regime. A real progressive system would provide optional opportunities in tandem with a basic, no frills prison experience which was tough but fair. Positive authority is what creates the atmosphere and environment for real rehabilitation and change; a change that comes from the experience of prison itself and which is self-actualised. It's not about creating a playground, it's about changing people's lives - for the better. The rehabilitation is in the whole experience, not in some pro

  31. Rubbish, if they "committed" to it, they would completely decimate a nation. But they don't want that, they want to destabilise it enough so that its "safe" enough so that contractors can repair it at great cost afterwards, but still be "dangerous" enough that they can maintain a troop presence to keep the local "government" in check. Each time it has been text book.

  38. I stand corrected as I found this piece on the nobles exposed site “Ex Hospital Manager, Barbara Scott was effectively demoted during the restructuring of the management staff a few years ago when Mark Charters was in charge. He then brought on board Michaela Morris as the Executive Director to Health and Social Care with the accountability of the hospital. In recent news, Barbara Scott has had secondment to the Chief Executives Office to do Transformation work - not sure where that job was advertised but seems to be a motion to remove her from the hospital altogether...”

  39. I have a few valid comments to make on this programme. In my opinion this makes a total mockery of the Isle of Man prison system as a whole. Most of the ‘guests’ in the Hilton have been in and out of prison for most of their lives. One even said he is doing ‘life in instalments’, he seemed proud of that Just a simple google of their names proves that they are reoffending again and again, so how is the rehabilitation and resettlement working? It clearly isn’t. As a tax payer for all of my adult life I am angry and embarrassed. One inmate to one guard??? If that isn’t over
