    How much exporting at a loss, subsidised by the taxpayer, can we sustain, it seems everything that farmers produce is a loss maker and subsidised, meat,dairy and grain, even the plant to process them are loss makers and subsidised, how much can you expect the public to pay for the privilage of keeping loss making farmers with an income?

    Perhaps permitted additives would be a better description, I read "legislated" as being not permitted.

    So do the UK mills, all used additives that are free from legislated additives, if you know of any mill using legislated additives then report them, they would be breaking the law. My knowledge of the "improving" of Manx milled wheat comes from my work at the mill and info from the then mill manager.

    These are added at the Laxey Mills, Manx flour is not great, lack of soil lime? and requires "improving"

    Mark &Sparks cheaper sliced loaves, I formed the idea they were manufactured locally, I assumed it was a RB product, fair bread at a low--ish price.

    The reason for importing is not price, it is quality,[ Very finely milled and often lauded as the best flour for making classic Neapolitan-style pizza with extra puffy crusts, 00 flour] Despite what folks have you believe, Manx flour is not the greatest in the world, as for price, Domestc bread flour in the UK is a third of the price of Laxey Flour, I checked last Friday in St Helens

    Edna rocks

    A heartwarming item from our Peel Guardian. An elderly lady at the " Assist the Aged" lunch received a new DAB radio as a raffle prize and was writing to say thank you. This story is a credit to all humanity. Forward it to anyone you know who might need a lift today... Dear Assist the Aged, God bless you for the beautiful wireless I won at your recent Senior Citizens lunch. I am 87 years old and live at the St Anne's Nursing Home for the Aged. All my family has passed away so I'm all alone. I want to thank you for the kindness you have shown to a forgotten old lady. My roommate is 95 and has always had her own wireless; but, she would never let me listen to it. She said it belonged to her long dead husband, and understandably, wanted to keep it safe.The other day her wireless somehow fell off the nightstand and broke into a dozen pieces. It was awful and she was in tears. She asked if she could listen to mine, and I was overjoyed that I could tell her to fuck off. Thank you for that wonderful opportunity. God bless you all. Sincerely, Edna.
  16. Pigeons, carrier variety, so many lost in service, and speckled Jim was from Pulrose, surely an obelisk is called for 🤔

    Vlad the lad.

    Vladimir Putin, to get on the good side of voters, goes to visit a school in Moscow to have a chat with the kids. He talks to them about how Russia is a powerful nation and how he wants the best for the people. At the end of the talk there is a section for questions. Little Sasha puts her hand up and says, "I have two questions. Why did the Russians take Crimea and why are we sending troops to the Ukraine?" Putin says, "Good questions". But just as he is about to answer the bell goes and the kids go to lunch. When they come back, they sit down and there is room for some more questions. Another girl, Misha, puts her hand up and says "I have four questions. Why did the Russians invade Crimea, why are we sending troops to the Ukraine, why did the bell go 20 minutes early and where the fuck is Sasha?
  18. Bye the bye, i think there is an ancient hill fort just off the access road, the "purt" of Purt-e chee, has any mention been made of it's future ?, no news isn't always bad news.
  19. Ooops, indeed I am, apologies.
  20. Despite Manx Radio's up to the minute reporting, there is indeed another candidate standing in Douglas Central, Stephen Pitts. https://www.manxradio.com/news/general-election-2021-news/corlett-to-stand-in-douglas-central/
