  1. HR managers would manage the performance of those working in their department, though they may help other departments with training and advice; it should then be for individual departments to manage the performance of those working there. The problem as I see it is that the CEOs and their deputies are not sufficiently accountable, because of the structure and the inability of their political leaders to manage them. Government HR on the IoM is not generally seen as supportive and enabling, especially with recruitment - disqualifying strong candidates educated to postgraduate level in the relevant discipline, because they did not pick up a GCSE in Maths or English along the way. It is useless at helping to get rid of employees who take the piss and seems primarily concerned with arse-covering.
  2. I'm not sure you understand the role of HR any more than the present incumbents do.
  3. Stopping toilet humour on here would be a big job...
  4. Parasite City...
  5. You do not have to provide them with a receipt or anything else. Unless they observed you walking back from town they have no justification in issuing a ticket. It is not up to an individual to prove innocence.
  6. Especially left handed kids or those who spoke Manx
  7. Say you're inarticulate without saying you're inarticulate...
  8. Too old for jeans, surely
  9. An 'Andre Fentoon' is now posting on FB. The police and courts will never guess his identity.
  10. These are racist lies.
  11. This is factually incorrect - look it up
  12. There are genuine problems involving the mental health of both adults and children on the Island, but this sort of drivel from the funfair owner demeans them. There is a world of difference between disappointment and a diagnosed condition.
  13. Maybe he can't park at home because his twat neighbour has filled the street with unlicensed cars?
  14. Quite right! Why stop there? Bring back the language that made the empire great. What about mongols, and spastics and cripples and, to call a spade a spade, fuzzy wuzzies and coons from Bongo Bongo land? Or in the case of you and your fellow travellers, cretins and morons?
  15. Using such outdated and discredited vocabulary reflects no credit on anyone. The Mental Health Act 1998 does not use the terms, and other occurrences should be revised when the opportunity arises.
  16. The placard on the hoarding shows a workman apparently contemplating suicide
  17. Some employers in the IoM maintained policies as late as the 1970s which limited to 10 days per annum the sick leave they would allow, even if the worker had been injured in their employment (pre H&S), so it could well have been a consideration; worse pay/ better conditions vs better pay / poorer conditions.
  18. The Mental Health Act 1930 did away with the terms 'lunatic' and 'asylum' in relation to people suffering mental ill-health, and continuing their use reinforces the stigma which still clings to patients in this unfortunate position. Perhaps the OP could acknowledge that the use of such terms by way of abuse is inappropriate and inaccurate, and find a better way of expressing dislike of a politician.
  19. In Gibraltar they are dumped in a street full of booze, tobacco, perfumes and jewellers. They buy plenty.
