  1. Good to see this is finally back on the rails and opening again. Had the basics of a very good golf course, with the maintenance of a grazing field, should be better this time around. Good luck to them.
  2. I assume I'm being nosey, but who are you? If you're a former TTer who had a big one, Milky?
  3. He's now clarified, seems I understood and you didn't chum. No apology necessary though
  4. Think you need to read that again chum, he says the opposite. The "everest" argument is rather valid this year isn't it? Can you imagine if there were the same number of casualties at a TT?
  5. Just seen on Facers that The driving range is away to open again, good luck to them, was a natural setting for a golf course.
  6. 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.
  7. 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
  8. 504 pages later, and we're back to my initial prediction "So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem"
  9. This was the point of this topic. The boundary commission now getting in on the act, it really is amazing the number of own goals the english govt keep scoring
  10. I don't need any more than this, you utter cunt
  11. I honestly don't think there's anything more to add, except, you're a complete fucking moron
  12. Doesn't bother me (unlike you it seems), it's just a non-topic of any interest
  13. 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.
  14. Terrible shame. Dead in the water now? Golf course gone as well?
  15. You can never be too careful
  16. It's happening now This was also highly amusing today https://skwawkbox.org/2018/06/13/vid-touche-mays-johnsons-pmqs-faces-after-corbyns-trump-question-are-a-must-see/
  17. So you also would like things that are inconvenient to you banned? Should the island do nothing at all?
  18. Surely only in relative terms, they'll still be coining it in over a normal week.
  19. 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.
  20. 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
  21. Do you want motorcycles banned? People die in football, why are you not wanting it banned?
  22. You keep avoiding this every time. What sports do you approve of?
  23. Irrelevant with respect to your argument. You want to stop something you don't approve of, you have yet to clarify what sort of sports you are happy with, and which you want banned, and what non-sporting activities should also be banned on your "everest" scale
  24. ...except if it's something you approve of doing, like driving a car?
