  1. There was a poll on Manx News and Politics asking if we should teach children Arab numerals given 'the situation in Europe'. A number of the morons voted 'no', before the post was locked, allegedly for being not up to the standard required on the page - or because it exposed the ignorance and bigotry of the subscribers, perhaps.
  2. Their children would not be entitled to free school meals or free transport.

  4. Of course, if the motorbike was moving...
  5. Police have always sought information. They sometimes knock on doors, or put signs up at the roadside for passing motorists who may have witnessed something, or put out media appeals. And now they use social media. So what's the big stress? Policing in GB is largely by consent, and asking the public to support them in upholding laws passed by democratically elected representatives is hardly asking us to do their jobs for them. The assumption that if 'someone other than a resident saw it then wouldn't they have been interviewed at the time?' is just that, an assumption. If they don't ask, they won't know, will they?
  6. Today's crop of mad illiteracy is outstanding, and beyond parody.
  7. Mr Baker is a middle aged man with a background in accountancy. He plays ping-pong, rides a bicycle, and is a member of the congregation of the Elim Pentecostal church. Sounds sure to be radical and down with the kids.
