  1. So that's the Chief Minister sorted then. He's written a job specification based upon his own perception of himself
  2. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/new-childrens-champion-appointed/ Peer to peer with this cohort. Both groups have a history of footstamping, sulking and stomping off.
  3. He knew his stuff, so was removed. Now Chair of the Institute of Highway design or some such according to Google. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/crossroads-decision-for-islandand39s-highways-boss/
  4. Tbf. Perhaps nearer 1.5, lest we forget the restrictions. Easy to do, however in April nothing was being done. In May trades started to return.
  5. It is probably as likely bus tramping down the left hand lane is going to meet perhaps the second or third car filtering left as natural instinct is to beat the light and now manoeuvre out left, not pause as if at a giveaway and look left /rear mirror. We were trained mirror signal manoeuvre and yet this is signal, manoeuvre, pause,mirror, manoeuvre.. Not good
  6. You weren’t sniffing it right
  7. From his description perhaps he accidentally tuned into the MS Teams Tynwald debate?
  8. Does ethnic minority include Manx? Serious point.
  9. How do you do a .gif or whatever of a grandstand. FFS , The guy has realised that all the hokum he has been parading is coming to naught, so has bailed so that he can spend the run in to the election saying how shit the administration, he is part of, is. Look forward to months of being bored rigid by this.
  10. he will almost certainly start throwing rocks into the pool now. lookout for a tonne of Keys questions delving into the places had had insider knowledge. the CM would probably regret this decision excepting he's getting ready to retire, so doesn't care one jot. a bumpy ride ahead for the rest though
  11. ^ I doubt the borders will open until there is a workable vaccine. A second wave would decimate the Island, whilst unlocked folk are hardly likely to return back into lockdown, think local, spend local, live local. The clues are all there.
  12. And they had buses they needed to use
  13. And there in lies part of the problem. A politician with limited if any strategic insight demands an options paper in now 3 days, for what is an extremely complex conundrum. Doesn't allow a lot of time beyond instinctive and knee-jerk thinking aimed at pleasing masser'. The entire covid emergency plan was derived over a one day weekend workshop in which the great and the good proclaimed *little Britain voice "I want that one". As in they had seen it in the news. Thereafter CoMin egos went into command and control overdrive. The issue being it will take many months to dig them back out of the enormous hole that they dug in a matter of days. There is no success story here. The borders shut, they traced the few who had it and it went away. That is not the work of genius. Interesting rumour has it the past few recorded cases have been brought back the Island by keyworkers. Keep borders closed, we all live and a relatively normal life, but the Steam Packet removes a boat and reduces sailings. We all starve and raw materials stop. Open borders, we all die again, a bit embarrassing really
  14. Horse trams phase 1 is actually 2 phases over 2 years. good use of the lockdown to plan so fully. Makes the bank holiday announcement look professional. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=55628&headline=Tram may only make war memorial in 2022&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2020&cat=Transport
  15. You're on the wrong tack there. Crane your neck in
  16. Ah, a cheap laugh aimed at the thicko. Referencing social media is fine. Usual thing, date first accessed, source, who said what in what context. Here I'm using social media as a lazy expression for any feedback opined from the public to an official statement. No doubt there will be more today, in response to the official denial. Use the modern Harvard system if you're stuck. That was fine for both of my Charterships.
  17. What was on the Order Paper was a laid before, I.e. no vote, no discussion to remove TT bank holiday.
  18. The social isolation bit was a joke following from my comment of yesterday that it was socially isolating from May bank holiday. At that time there was no one off replacement. perhaps contracts of employment etc. Got in the way of the original cull. I dunno.
  19. That’s 15,000 or about 1/3 of the economically active population. the main gripe seems to be CoMin making an emergency decision which clearly isn’t and assuming that would be alright
