  1. Wow - he recycled that gag again. Used it last year with the MLC team.
  2. The pitchfork wavers are over the fucking moon already after buying a courthouse on the ratepayer.
  3. An impartial observer may conclude that Energy and 3FM were both ego projects started by MR rejects. WKRP will be setting up his own station next.

    Probably for the reasons JW has already highlighted. The claimant believes he'd get more in the UK.

    The regulations for 2018 are here https://www.iomtt.com/~/media/Files/2018/Regs/TT_Regulations_2018_15_05.pdf And say "Each entry, if accepted, will form a contract between Organisers and the entrant/rider, which will be governed by and construed in all respects in accordance with Isle of Man law. Each of the parties irrevocably submits to the jurisdiction of the Isle of Man Courts in respect of any legal action or proceedings arising out of the contract or the participation of the entrant/rider in the meeting" The question of jurisdiction seems simple enough.
  6. Daft Daphne is likely acting as a mouthpiece for arch education critic Llewellyn-Bowen in the same way that President Rodent was before her. Cregeen should simply say that if the hon. member's constituent wants to discuss policy he should ring for an appointment. He should however remember that the department's staff are focused on the 8000 or so children in the education system and not the one who isn't.

    Someone needs to get out to occupied Foxdale with a defibrillator I reckon.
  8. Indeed. This mob of halfwits will be unable to catch anyone who doesn't have a record. They'll end up being vigilantes pushing dogshit through letterboxes etc of anyone released from prison.
  9. Perhaps the layout makes it difficult to follow
  10. Yup, still waiting. Came up in a recent FOI https://iom.icasework.com/servlet/servlets.getImg?ref=D410665&bin=Y&auth=0&db=ZVD1ZPdIGvo%3D&access_token=khlnpEU3F49F8QwwelYoeF5ywHPgYp1mJUAwn2OhxLzE31D99QPXPmL6Dg84uxBe.M9RCMOcwdwLKI6b2qyKFIw%3D%3D
  11. Links are on the Tynwald website http://www.tynwald.org.im/memoff/remall/Pages/default.aspx#top
  12. I appreciate the detail however in my simple mind the discussion is a little neater. 1. Do we need an airport? 2. Assuming we do, do we have the PAX numbers to make it a commercial success? 3. If we do, crack on and let an experienced operator take it over. If its capable of profit, there'll be a queue. 4. If we don't then the operation has to be funded by the taxpayer. If the taxpayer funds it, then there's no reason at all why the operation can't deliver on all the points in the report.
  13. Quite right dec. The substance of her complaint hasn't yet been revealed in any detail, save for a few references to concern for patient safety.
