    Ownership of TT Course

    Many football games close roads in vicinity, some golf tournaments require roads in area closed, parks commandeered for parking etc. I could go on, but those two are the sports I know most about so will stick on solid ground. Yes the TT is fairly unique (apart from rallying, running, cycling) in that it closes roads for actual event use, rather than ancilliary use, but being against it because it closes roads is no argument at all. As a one time comeover, I found the whole TT week fantastic, closed roads and all. But if you don't like it, let out your house for the week/fortnight, you'll more than pay for your foreign holiday. What's not to like.

    Deary me. Everything can kill you, many with a higher chance than motorbike racing. If you don't like it, there's a boa.........oh wait, boats can capsize. Hmmm, well there's always air.....oh ffs

    504 pages later, and we're back to my initial prediction "So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem"

    Doesn't bother me (unlike you it seems), it's just a non-topic of any interest

    Biased Broadcasting Corporation

    Well, there's been little doubt for a long time that the Beeb were just the state propaganda arm, so I opened this expecting more of the same, or even an article pointing it out. I didn't expect an article on sport, nor a daily mail-esque type comment from the OP.

    TT2018 - entertainment, tents and that

    So you also would like things that are inconvenient to you banned? Should the island do nothing at all?

    Surely only in relative terms, they'll still be coining it in over a normal week.

    Not at all, you're the one wants the TT banned, I don't, nor any other sport, nor activity, nor type of work (fishing for example has an incredibly high death toll). It's very simple, you do, it's not something you like or approve of, yet has no effect on you at all. You won't explain reasoning other than people occasionally die doing it, which occurs doing other things you don't want banned. I'm simply asking for an explanation of this contradiction.

    Cool. So, do you want other sports where people die banned too? I know it's taken hours and hours to get here, but that was my initial question, so if you could answer this first time without stupid "everest" & "bingo" comments, that would be just erchie
