    That argument could be used for absolutely any law. You enforce it when you can and have the resources to do so. Its a lame excuse to not introduce appropriate legislation.

    How about an all island 60mph limit for a 3 year trial period. look at the road death rate then and see if your statement holds true.
  3. The prize for nonchalant walk goes to the geezer in the blue loafers.
  4. finally finished. What an intrusive waste of my time that was. Thommo, my old man refused to fill in certain parts back in the 80s, he got a whopping fine as i recall. I wonder which government departments have access to this data.
  5. I've been kicked off the website over 20 times this morning with 'sorry theres a problem', I'm still on the first questions about one of four occupiers. At what point legally is it reasonable for me to either switch off and say this is unworkable or bill them for my time as its their problem ?

    Dave Lowe on 477213, top lad. Think he lives Braddan area.
  7. She wouldn't have known the rules of kingliness as she never Googled Haz on the internetz machine. Probs Opera'd him tho.
  8. Perhaps they want to put the old TT Scoreboard in Balthane, together with a tarmac road and a few cub scouts as a new attraction.
  9. So this poster is basically an ideal but has no resemblance to reality 1612-iom-covid_vaccine_priority_poster_final-web-161220.pdf
  10. I've just had a look at the schedule for vaccinations https://covid19.gov.im/vaccination/vaccination-schedule-priority-groups/ which doesnt seem to be a schedule at all but more a timeline of what theyve done. Does anyone know what priority group they are currently vaccinating (1-10) and the projected dates when each will start ? If theres a link I'm just not finding please point me to it/
  11. Had a similar problem myself some years ago. General builders / roofers didnt want to touch it as they couldnt guarantee any work they did as they didnt fit the original roof. All talked of previous jobs with people calling them back when fixes to conservatory roofs hadnt worked then expected further work with guarantee for free. Best bet is find a good handyman. Again it is unlikely he will guarantee any work either.
  12. Definitely Umbongo in my day. and they drink it in the Congo Uuh
  13. Hand us over to the UK and rename us Manxshire. Yay sorted.
  14. 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.
  15. The metformin replacement ‘sukkarto’ is like trying to swallow a whole grape !
  16. 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.
  17. I should say this morning now ! Saturday 8:45 sailing
  18. 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.
  19. He looks a bit lost to me. Castle Saburac is out towards Peel yessir.
  20. Trying to resist Amazons ‘deal of the day’ would be a fair defence. I struggle myself sometimes.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. Some of the comments on Facebook were priceless. B&q need to get in a stock of pitchforks.
  24. 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
