    Enterprise Development Scheme.

    A friend of mine was told that the 300 houses off the new Ballasalla bypass were for Chinese families ! I should add this was by someone from Dandara, we suspected it was a planning ruse !!!!!!

    Maybe we could use the expertise involved when sorting out agricultural grants surely those must be subject to rigid oversight ? Sorry caffeine hasn't kicked in yet !

    John I think you hit the nail on the head there in your first ten words ! especially the word "past" ! When so many charities are competing for public support, those who have moved with the times have invariably done better. I support the charity with cash and sponsor a horse, but the visitor numbers missed by not being open when children are around is probably huge ! When I moved to the island thirty years ago, I was told keep your mouth shut, many things are written in stone and can't be changed ! many of those stones are now millstones around the islands neck !

    Ronaldsway Airport

    I guess the answer is yes, we chose, apparently, to be a guinea pig for this system being used on an island ! It didn't work ! as I understand it, it is an inward looking array using data from remote installations which presents problems on an island. I am only guessing as like most cock ups here it is kept hush hush ! With certainty the project has not gone as intended !

    Ronaldsway Airport

    Working I assume yes it is, certificated I assume no its not. Its all very cloak and dagger when talking about the new (old) radar, little information has ever been forthcoming. I suspect had it been fully certificated there would have been a huge fanfare hence my assumption it is not approved, coupled with the fact the old one which couldn't possibly work beyond was it 2012 ? is still in use. Its only money !!!!

    It is fairly common knowledge that they were audited and found wanting in some areas ! The answer is not to correct what needed correcting to but to overzealously inconvenience everyone in the guise of security. Intelligent people would be able to use discretion in the application of the rules. I recently came back through Birmingham and got pulled as they wanted to swab my apple ! ......... absolutely true they removed a Russet apple from my hand luggage and swabbed it ! Perhaps the memo had read "Apple" as in computer LOL !

    Steam Packet to be sold

    http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=44377&headline=Public seem unsatisfied with Steam Packet prices&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2018 I know a number of people are happy with SPCO prices when compared to others, sadly the man in the street isn't happy ! Perhaps the comparisons don't hold sway when the service really is a "lifeline" rather than a choice !
