  1. Such simple basic errors, no doubt nobody will be held responsible and “lessons will have been learnt”.
  2. Don’t know what the arrangements are currently but in “the old days” either the Airport Director or Operations Manager were on duty standby and available on call 24/7.
  3. Whilst I fully accept that the MER is in need of essential maintenance, I look at the work being presently carried out on the tracks at Groudle and wonder if we are constructing the new east coast high speed railway ? In my humble opinion the specification is beyond “solid platinum” for what is, after all, to only be used by ultra slow speed lightweight rolling stock. Anybody else got any views?
  4. Has “accountability” been removed from the dictionary ?
  5. Today I see there is a big illuminated sign erected by the DOI at the north end of the promenade which says. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. Is this an attempt to totally appease us or is it “rubbing salt in the wound” ?

    Looking to the reopening of air services for the island I have come to the conclusion that EasyJet are likely to concentrate on their “fatter” routes and not provide us with the service we have come to enjoy. Consequently, with a distinct lack of other airlines available I believe that we need to take the lead in establishing an island based operation for ourselves. I don’t consider a government run airline to be a viable solution as costs would undoubtedly be prohibitive . However, there is currently an airline sitting in the wings with the right aircraft, IOM operating experience, and a
  13. It would be interesting to know how many ventilators the island has already, and how many more are being obtained ?
