  1. Indeed, the Manxman's home is his castle is an entirely Thaturite construct. In countries like Holland and Belgium there is no stigma attached to rental at all. It far outstrips homeownership. And state provision of rental accommodation ensures quality and now thermal / green build is commonplace. Buy to let or even build to let like a family member did for a number of hotels absolutely has a place n the market, else they wouldn't be filled.
  2. Only on the IoM would being already 20% late on delivery be seen as a success. Get Kevin McCloud in to make a documentary. Amateur project manager, overstretches ideas, overspends on budget. Doesn't realise vision and cries great lot.
  3. The taller ones are stacks (well some of them) and it is causing issues. I stand by my comment.
  4. Funny that they hadn't realised the old lights were also vent stacks. Bit of a panic, I believe not yet fully resolved, behind the scenes with that one.
  5. Word in pub. This job is filled.
  6. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/respondents-say-no-to-area-based-rates-system/ just say no... https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/thomas-unveils-plan-to-base-rates-on-property-size/ Just crack on anyway... ...Take it or leave it fella.. doesn't seem very democratic?
  7. the gift that keeps on giving - https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/calls-for-more-govt-investment-to-protect-against-flooding/ cos no one else has thought of that https://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_597447.html waste of a letter(s) matey
  8. In my experience this is a common set up to assist wildlife and particularly fishstock. Also in my experience the contractor will have had the method statement either signed off by the MUA or designed by the MUA. Finally, in my experience, don't do riverworks during the exquinox. Do it in late spring before spawning and when river levels are dropping ** My experience - three river crossing jobs and design for works in rivers.
  9. Some of the engineers told me it was a year behind. Note recent press now states 'substantially complete' whereas it was 'complete' no problem.
  10. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/minister-heartened-by-area-plan-for-the-east-focus/ Costing an awful lot of money and time to decide the existing plan isn't fit for purpose is 'heartening' - back it comes January 2020, at least, and the inquiry isn't even half complete yet
  11. Breaking news! Howard is due to announce operation shitehawk, which will both lay bare the genius foresight of paying shitloads for an old boat and ensure essential supplies such as coasta coffee granules will make it through regardless. Who knows, there may even be room for some medicines.
