  1. But if you don't have any luck on Athol Street or Prospect Hill you can always try somewhere else.

  3. 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.

  4. Well if there are "pros and cons", that surely implies there is a question.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. Yep, totally agree. Even before Covid there was far too much chasing Easyjet, to no benefit. They didn't bring in any more visitors, as hoped, and because of their preferential rates the revenue has gone down, while costs to accommodate them, have gone up. Amazingly, the talk of "corporatisation" hasn't gone away, despite it being a no-hoper even before Covid. There's certainly no case for that now.

  8. When IEG bought Manx Gas do you think they bought it for our benefit. They bought it to make money. It's a commercial arrangement. They have the right to negotiate terms relating to their charges. I don't know why we disapprove of this or find it surprising. When you claim benefits the same does not really apply does it.

  9. It's letting people grow 4 plants, like a metre square with a 250hps. Its not complicated, not for growing loads and selling it, its for people to make the choice of what they do in their own lives. It is a good thing in all possible considerations and should be the starting point here, right now.

  12. We need to reign in the empire builders, and turn the whole ethos back to being a well run , regional airport with limited passenger numbers. From the moment we started to think we were an international hub nothing but problems have arisen ! We have spent millions but have no more passengers and fewer flights ! The author of the 2006 report doesn't like to say he told you so, but he told you so LOL !!!!!

  13. Another nomination - Diane Kelsey. Who is currently "Chief of Staff and Private Secretary" to the Governor. An impressive CV and a number of government committees since she retired from the RAF. Again whether people should move from high-ranking posts in government service (or equivalent) straight into a role monitoring how such people operate, is the question.

  15. Even Cannan duly said that if the gas supply to consumers was interrupted, Govt would step in to ensure continuity. Yet despite being lacking in supplied financial details, our elected voted through this huge rise with just a little huffing and puffing. Once again IoMG demonstrates its eagerness to fall to its knees in front of the open flies of a local monopoly supplier with the GMP simply expected to stump up for the tissues and wetwipes. Another Houseful of spineless wasters. God help those consumers on low and fixed incomes if this winter is bad.
