    I always thought that politicians elected democratically should be allowed to decide what was best for us. I am now of the opinion that I was wrong. These idiots should be stopped in their tracks before we are sold too far down the river to paddle back. This scheme is absolutely mental. It just has to be a joke.

    The other thing Max is that the UK have motorways which are comparatively safe. Strip motorways and dual carriageways out of the UK figures and then do the comparison.

    Well according to the website devoted to the tram horses there are currently fifteen working horses (fourteen geldings and one mare), so it's a bit late to start worrying about that.

    I’m not sure but I do imagine that the typical meeting at the DfE and DOI these days must consist of all parties sitting round a table freebasing cocaine until they come up with the most expensive and stupid idea imaginable.

    He didn't have a fall from grace. It was all his wife. Nothing whatsoever to do with Richard. He wasn't even called as a witness.

    If you read even that Manx Radio summary, while they claim "the ACU has been providing all rehabilitation required as medically advised to assist Mercer's recovery" this is actually based on the idea that "its robust insurance package provides the best possible support for riders while recovering from injuries". So in other words it's got nothing to do with what the ACU provides of its own free will, but what the insurance company is providing because it has been paid the premiums. presumably by Mercer.

    In a way this entire complete and utter shambles epitomises everything that's wrong with IOMG. They're blindly stumbling into a massive outlay of public money on a project with clearly no proven financial basis and there's NO process in place to stop them! I can't help thinking that in an organisation with a paucity of good ideas ANY idea, no matter how stiupid, is siezed upon as the solution to the public sector pension deficit. Because there's nothing else on offer...

    Nah, my opinion remains the same. There'll be turmoil for a while, granted, but trade won't stop, deals will be done in a 'swings-and-roundabout' fashion. Change is inevitable. 2 years from now we'll look back and wonder what all the hysteria, fuss and bluster was about. And I still contend that the bloc won't exist, in its present form, in 5 years time. We'll see...

    "In 2017, Mr Clanton launched a GoFundMe bid to raise £1bn for the E.G.G - ’Ecological Geophysical Galleon’ - a 180-acre floating city off the Manx coast.So far, his crowdfunder has raised the grand sum of £4,815" The Reading University PhD student called Ian is £999,995,185 short of funds for his plans. He seems articulate and pleasant sort of a chap, but clearly is untainted by reality.

    Indeed. But PGW should have the right to put his point of view . I seldom agree with his views and I am guilty of mocking them, but is this banning a bit too much. Should one be banned for questioning a mod's view.?,

    £ has been spooked for 3+ years then. The latest dip is clearly uncertainty but please don't join the facebook crowd who say it's nothing to do with "it". You would have a stronger argument if he hadn't been DG of WTO for 8 years since his Delors days. Hmmm, woolley's views or Lamy's ? Tricky one..... As for that twot Johnson (just my opinion m'lud) who has now grabbed the steering wheel, with him at the helm there is good reason for a degree of unease. But they will remain in the block with all its up and running deals that we will choose to trash (= 65% of our exports remember) in a few weeks. Still Trump will look after us after America first. Tariffs.....yay!

    There is no point in having speed limit if no one respects them and they are not monitored. The number of crashed cars that appear outside Haydn Minays every week and the state of them makes me think that most crashes do not get reported or acted on as long as no one is seriously hurt, must be bump for bump or just one vehicle involved. It is a wonder people get out of some of these wrecks alive.

    He had to resign as Chief Minister - that sounds pretty much like a fall from grace to me. Even if it was proved that the entire thing had been set up by the CIA and Corkills were as pure as the driven snow, that would still have been worth mentioning in the Wiki article. It's the complete omission that I found amusing. In fact of course Julie Corkill was found guilty and received a heavy fine. And there was much muttering even after that. And of course the whole thing came just after the Mount Murray affair, so gave a lot of ammunition to those who saw the Island's administration as corrupt. In fact an examination of the Wiki article's history shows that previous versions did mention the incident and over the years it became minimised and then vanished altogether.

    I suppose we are forgetting that road deaths and injuries during the TT and MGP period are included in these statistics too. If those were removed we may actually be safer than we appear? Either way, we have an inflated result due to the large increase in road traffic and the stupidity of some of those visiting for the races.

    Yes your right it was supposed to go to around 1.7 meters and now apart from the pipe works its a lot less. Apparently when they started digging they found a crumbling concrete level which apparently has caused the varying undulating finished levels and no voids which they expected to find.

    So where can we see the results of the survey.... you know, the numbers/statistics? Lots of news agencies reporting the same thing (almost word-for-word which you would expect since there's only one source) but not one of them has a link to the numbers.

    A 180 acre floating island off Scarlett might be a better investment though. It’s hard to really differentiate the merits of the two at first glance. Maybe we should pay for both just in case?
