  1. Why? The rallying is as much a part of manx motorsport heritage as the TT in many ways. I once had to sit in traffic for over an hour because of that bloody rally. Ban it I say!
  2. If you want to know what I think, just search my posts. I'm tired of saying the same things twice a year. The rally can fuck off though.
  3. Seriously, if you hate the TT because you bought a house on Governor's Hill, just fecking move.
  4. It is quite hard to get on some radios, as it's right at the beginning of the FM dial, before radio 2, it's quite a technique to get a manual dial to stay that far to the end.
  5. Just out of interest, did you bring the Harrods chocolate spread with you? I'd assume you would not be able to fly anywhere with that in your cabin baggage.I don't think you can blame the IOM airport for that. Yup. Brought it over the same way from London. It's a tiny jar. Not the huge Nutella type thing. At these temperatures it's no different to the multiple chocolate bars I'm carrying in the same bag. Total security bullshit, like most of security is nothing but job creating bullshit. Go fly out of Manila where we have a real terrorist threat and see how they handle things. It's very different I tell you that. Shows you which one is doing a real job and which ones are clipboard soldiers complying with checklists devised by overpaid management. Apart from security, staff here were very friendly though, so something positive to it at least. Maybe nobody could believe that you had a lovely jar of chocolate spread and didn't eat it straight away!
  6. I listened via the iomtt app, not sure if that made a difference.m
  7. So there is an FM frequency? Nothing mentioned on the Manx Radio website and not heard mention of it when streaming, how did you stumble on this secret knowledge? Secret Facebook https://www.facebook.com/pages/Manx-Radio-TT/175266482529509 Although tbh I found their online radio stream fine.
  8. It still is. I listened to it all on FM.
  9. In the M&S car park you only got a few hours free, not sure about Chester St.
  10. Sorry, I misunderstood you. Are you saying that all drivers on low incomes should get free parking?
  11. So, free parking for some blue badge holders.
  12. Well maybe Douglas Corporation is listening - to miserable selfish sods...
  13. John McGuinness 163.280mph.
  14. Yes .. People should be made to advertise the fact that they are disabled AND poor just so any council zealot doesn't think they are swinging the lead. In fact why don't we just go back to giving them those spazzy blue 3 wheeler cars like in the 1970s so everyone can see that they are a cripple with no money rather than motability allowing them to have a bit of dignity that might be mis interpreted as wealth by some corpy numbskull with an inferiority complex? I think you have missed the point somewhat. Those that can pay, should pay. I shall give a different response. Why should they?

  16. I would say that's a very good reason. I can choose not to pay by walking. Or I could stay home and shop online, which surely isn't what the Corpy want, neither is it good for vulnerable people to be almost forced into isolation. If David Christian is concerned about family members/friends abusing the system, or parkers overstaying, the there are already systems in place to deal with that. Also I think it's a nice thing to do.
  17. I suspect the police have been overwhelmed again this year; and after the mishandled press releases following the helicopter tragedy, my guess is that they're going to sit on this one until they're good and ready. No news is probably bad news unfortunately. Was that the open roads crash? I saw a tweet from Derek Flint yesterday, he mentioned life changing injuries.
  18. I don't think they are controlled at all, politically or otherwise. Re the nationals, just check who owns each one. Then you'll understand the angle they take.
  19. I don't think paninis are on the banned list for sidecars.
  20. Oh FFS. Does this thread need Spiderman pictures yet?
  21. So what if they can afford it? It must be shit being disabled. Why can't the rest of us make life a little easier for them? Also, it could happen to any one of us. Wouldn't it be nice to know that there are some people looking out for us?
