    Definitely Umbongo in my day. and they drink it in the Congo Uuh
  2. Hand us over to the UK and rename us Manxshire. Yay sorted.
  3. I always thought driving on closed roads was what used to be (and possibly still is) referred to as an 'absolute offence' . The road legally closes at a particular time and the car drove on to the road after that specified time, if the answer is yes then the offence is complete. Whether barriers were in place and/or people were or were not waving flags is just mitigation. For example Mr Dilligaf lives in a mansion house which he accesses through electronic gates that enter on to the course. He has not long returned home from a month abroad in the Galapagos islands and has totally forgotten the TT is on. 2 minutes or 20 minutes after the roads legally close he then drives out of his gates intending to visit Maccy D's, there are no barriers or marshals to be seen in either direction of his drive. The fact he has no idea the road is closed isnt really relevant, offence is complete he drove on a closed road. Excuses and reasons are purely mitigation . John will probably politely tell me (very politely) I'm a bit dense but thats how I've always seen it.
  4. The metformin replacement ‘sukkarto’ is like trying to swallow a whole grape !
  5. As the government aren’t doing enough I wonder if any of these fantastic parents have tooled their kids up today for self protection. Although a spud gun would be a reasonable non lethal option. I should clarify, when I say ‘tooled up’ I don’t mean in the foxdale way.
  6. I should say this morning now ! Saturday 8:45 sailing
  7. I’m booked on tomorrow mornings 8.45 sailing to Heysham with a 5 day break deal. I suspect it may get cancelled but in the event it doesn’t and goes ahead I really don’t fancy traveling in the rough weather anyway. If I don’t turn up do I lose the complete fare or will they let me reorganize till after the bad weather at and charge a rearrange fee? Anyone know ? i can’t ring them as no one is there.
  8. He looks a bit lost to me. Castle Saburac is out towards Peel yessir.
  9. Trying to resist Amazons ‘deal of the day’ would be a fair defence. I struggle myself sometimes.
  10. Hope he’s registered with an NHS dentist as He’s going to need it after biting one of those things. I’d rather chew a breeze block.
  11. The technology to somehow chip a vehicle so that upon entering a 30- 40 - 50mph or even temporary speed zone it becomes restricted to that speed cannot be far away. In fact with modern cars it’s probably already a viable solution. Let’s hope it’s not far away.
  12. Some of the comments on Facebook were priceless. B&q need to get in a stock of pitchforks.
  13. I think you’re fibbing back during that period transferee applicants would do the physical test in force and the result, pass or fail would be given to the IoM Constabulary. What you achieved on the bleep test wasn’t relevant . in early 1994 two male officers transferred from the Met and Essex, both grew up in England in late 1994 four male officers were interviewed with positions for all of them should they pass the interview. One was a returning Manxman, all the others were England born and bred. Only one failed the interview, which I assume was you. I know this as it was i that was returning home from the Met Police. Our start date was February 1995
  14. Hmmmm so those previously convicted of drug offences did they consult all their old customers or did they just consult the queen. Or is he suggesting old victims don’t count .
  15. Peel - where the girls are the boys
  16. Well I learned something there. Amadeus isn’t the Afro carribean female I suspected.
  17. The way they post relevant information is piss poor. It’s a clear ‘fuck you’ to the residents.
  18. So where exactly does one find an up to date road closure list and their plans for tomorrow
  19. Prison governor says "The truth is, of course it's a risk, but then everything you do is balance of benefit and risk and we didn't do it lightly." so what is the benefit exactly ?
  20. Im upgrading my very old laptop and I’m having to update 4-5 excel spreadsheets that auto populate some word docs that were originally made in office 2007 (or thereabouts) by someone else. I’m going over to office 365 which is not compatible with them. any idea of the likely cost for someone o do this and who would anyone recommend. I need them for a very small business.
  21. King Orry the Dane...... errr no, Norwegian actually.
  22. I’m in need of 4 crowns replacing, a bridge and a load of other dental work but have no idea who to trust. Any recommendations?
