  1. Too busy writing that toe-curlingly puerile blog.
  2. Over a period of decades we’ve become a society that expects the state to address every matter in our lives, however trivial. This broadens out to encompass a lack of risk taking (when did you last see kids climbing trees or making huts) or general exploration of life, with the consequent loss of basic life skills. How many 16 year olds could wire a plug, dress a cut or a burn, or change a wheel on a car? When anything whatsoever happens to most people these days they immediately have two questions: ‘ Whose fault was that’? (because of course it’s never theirs) and ‘Who’s going to put this right’? (because of course it’s never them). And in the IOM the political community is particularly culpable in encouraging exactly that mind set. Cretney has made a lifetime career of it.
  3. Good question. I’d say almost certainly yes.
  4. Well indeed yes - but Anderson left well over 5 years ago so whatever mess he left behind (which in retrospect was probably less of a mess than his successors appear to have created) could/should have been cleared by those who’ve come after. I think the real ‘modern’ culprit is Quayle - not least his appointment of Harley-Davidson Charters who seems to have really created lasting chaos.
  5. The past three Health Ministers have been Quayle, Beecroft and Ashford. Enough said.
  6. I’m never harsh Neil; just brutal in a particularly unforgiving medieval way.
  7. Roger, is that a polite way of saying that RC is a cock?
  8. Billy Duggan’s Loaghtyn pies Big Bridie Quilleash massage parlour and pickled herring emporium Stan Crebbin embalming services ‘Mad Dog’ Corkill childrens’ entertainer Braddan International airport The Glenfaba buttock grazing and foreskin-moulding cabaret show I have of course fabricated these. I simply wish they existed.
