  1. Your spelling is the least of the problems, when considered alongside your silly assertion that hypochondria is the 'biggest problem'. A funding crisis, a staff crisis, a mental health crisis, the challenges these pose are serious, but you prefer to criticise people for going to the ED when you have no knowledge of their conditions or needs, or the shortcomings elsewhere that have driven them to attend.
  2. Hypochondria is an anxiety disorder: it is not a 'disease', and 'decease' is unlikely.
  3. Hasn't taken long for old racist jokes to re-emerge, either
  4. Given the press coverage, 'Spaniels' would be better
  5. If you can't bore people at the pub you'll have to do it on here, I suppose.
  6. Closing the pubs today - Where will people go to sit complaining they can't afford to pay their bills?
  7. Edge was responding to pressure from parents - no one at DESC will have cared one way or the other. Dates are traditionally a low level task done by a secretary with little consultation with schools or parents, so perhaps the procedure should be reviewed. Some parents regard schools as a free child minding service which they are not. Affordable child minding could be state subsidised, or people who can't afford kids could refrain from producing them, but using schools for the purpose is ridiculously expensive.
  8. Paul Craine used to do the data: he left. Those now at department are civil servants who don't understand education, and failed teachers who can't do data, hence the delay. They've probably had to second a senior manager from one of the secondary schools.
  9. Good thing about the Isle of Man? Somewhere Josem can't get elected.

    TT 2022 ??

    There seem to be far fewer visitors for MGP this year. One church cafe that is normally very busy has takings so low that they probably won't open next year. Have the government's massaged figures come out yet?
  11. Serves you right for calling them sneakers
  12. You have made a lot of assumptions: none of them are correct.
  13. I was never told that for my child - apart from a shirt for sport. Had to buy a tie and a blazer badge, but that was all. So which schools are doing different, because I don't think they can legally enforce it.
  14. He'd convert it to a beach mission
  15. Risking your life to rescue others for no financial reward is about as 'woke' as it gets
  16. There was a tendering process and firms on and off island applied
  17. Fascinating discussion - wake me up when you've finished....
  18. If what was posted were true, this would be good advice, but I suspect the OP was trolling
  19. In China the Politburo is elected by the Central Committee, so it's at least as democratic as LEGCO

    Garffs MHK

    LOL. Can't think which candidate (or his supporters) put it about the older people in the constituency that Gareth was a revolutionary communist - something that was repeated to me in all seriousness more than once.
  21. The posts showing this girl's picture and info should be deleted
