  1. The new traffic setup in Castletown is a disaster. Spoke to a few local businesses and trade is down up to 40%. I don’t know what they were thinking doing this but it needs changing ASAP.
  2. Newmarket Holidays according to the sign on the bus.
  3. The reduction in their losses comes at a cost to private businesses who BV should not be competing with in the first place. Whichever muppet came up with this idea probably thought he’s a right clever genius for using a tax payer subsidised fleet to undercut private operators, but was then too dumb or arrogant to realise that this is a calculation that doesn’t work on any level. And of course now that the shit has hit the fan it’s a double screw up. BV is letting fare paying customers they are supposed to be there for down and private businesses still lose money. Irresponsible clowns.
  4. Private Hire bus full of tourists on the prom this morning, at the same time as regular services were “at risk”. How is this acceptable?
  5. Whenever I see stuff like the pride cheese, I’m torn between thinking “oh that’s nice” and “oh that’s clever marketing”. It’s a bit cheesy you must admit.
  6. Having declared Reynoldsway a permanent emergency, the coast guard can now help people get to where they want to go. Probably.
  7. When you're done anonymously sniping and insulting people from the sidelines, why don't you get involved in the democratic process? At every single council meeting do I stare at the empty public gallery and think how not one of the people complaining all the time bother to turn up and learn about what we do or engage with us. Not one. Mmmkay.
  8. DBC is short staffed on the front lines and some of this has to do with pay rates and IOMG being able to pay more and getting all the staff at the moment. Plenty of job openings right now. Steps are already being taken to address this. Believe you me that I am not a friend of top heavy organisations, but the guys you see out and about every day are working hard and take pride in what they do.
  9. Sometimes I also reply to pointless forum posts.
  10. Landed safely it seems https://fb.watch/dQjFNlQIy9/
  11. So much anger. May I suggest Yoga or a change in diet? Or stop by on Sunday and talk to me. You don't even have to tell me who you are. I know some people prefer internet anonymity, especially in a place as small as the IOM, and I'm ok with that. I'll be there for most of the day, willing to listen.
  12. Meet the Mayor and your friendly neighbourhood councillors on Sunday:

    I’ve put a post out asking people to comment on their experiences with traffic over the next days / weeks to see if there’s a need to intervene. I’m not keen on knee jerk reactions after the first couple of days.

    KFC

    It’s got some seating space inside and outside as well.

    That was just an example.

    KFC

    I could have Little Fish dishes at home every night - just have to ask the chef nicely if she cooks them for me Let people pay for what they want. Someone wants KFC delivered and is happy to pay a fiver on top? Good on them. What makes them different from someone who spends 30+ quid on a steak sandwich and a glass of 1995 chateauneuf du trainstation at the Refuge? Nothing. Nada.

    Five quid for delivery is cheap. My time needed to go there and queue is more valuable. That’s what you pay for. Or not, depending on your preference in life.

    I would even have used the music but it’s copyrighted and they enforce.

    KFC

    Queue is on the epic scale. Neighbouring businesses have already complained that people park there and walk over so I think it’s drive through only right now.

    These are the IOM ones. Anyone got a link to UK ones?
