  1. At the side of those two my dog could stand a chance !
  2. Gawne's rushed through farmers grants "I'll look after you boys" and his scant regard for public money were his undoing !
  3. The world seems to be suffering by a lack of credible opposition to its Governments which makes them think and act in an accountable way. The UK is a prime example, but here is the extreme ! Our lack of respect for public money and general unaccountability, and a never ending ability to cram more skeletons in the cupboard are a sad legacy to an ancient parliament !
  4. If factual, perhaps illustrates how prevalent it still is in the UK !!
  5. I read the R rate in the UK is rising and the floodgates to pubs etc are about to open. We should observe from a distance for a while !!!
  6. Because my friend sent it to me on what's app but I've no idea how to share it anon !
  7. Can someone please post the DOI Hitler parody from facebook it'll bring a smile to everyone, I can't do it as I don't do facebook.
  8. Guernsey flights to Southampton resume next week by Aurigny I am told ! How does this dovetail with the Covid free policy ?
  9. I see on the news that Leicester is seeing a surge in infections and may be subject to local lockdown ! whatever happens I do hope we exercise great care here on opening the borders !
  10. Yes but enough about the Treasury Minister let's get back on topic !

    Black Lives Matter

    The world has gone collectively mad !
  12. I agree it will raise finance easily but it is disingenuous for anyone to imply that that is not a "cost" in the scheme of the deal. Taking control of the packet was a good move but I think we overpaid. Moving on, I think we have to do something with the air routes, we are a niche market and as such need a niche market solution, which imo open skies does not provide.
  13. Compared to the creative ways our Government find to toss cash away it doesn't look that bad ! Take away 1.6 million which I think is the health service necessity, then compared to the nags on the prom and Longworths toy train the balance looks manageable ! If airlines don't want to come this may be the only way forward, we are paying god knows how much to sort the sea routes which is going to actually return eff all for some years given we need new ships and have to develop half of merseyside at taxpayers expense.

    Fancy a pint?

    The whitestone is dire !!!!
  15. I hesitate to use the phrase "the next time" but it does at least send a message of intent to owners that Government may have learned a lesson from the past ! It really is time for an adult discussion about open skies and the merry go round that has been airline operations here for many years.
  16. ........ and so the ludicrous merry go round of airline operations continues unabated on the IOM with the end user (us taxpayers) getting shafted again ! I am anti Government running anything, but there is now surely a case for an adult discussion about open skies and too small a market to sustain operators.
  17. If there is one thing Government does very well its overblown bureaucracy, which alienates everyone !
  18. My laughing reaction was based upon your use of the phrase "lessons actually not learned" SNAFU !
  19. He must be some use for something I guess !
  20. Anne is probably managing, the TV star is planning his next film !
  21. Forgive me if I haven't got this, but I have a strong dislike of planning who are / were petty beyond belief when trying to get permission to fence a garden ! Enough of that, but I applaud this wonderful building getting restored. How can planning grant any permissions without knowing what the end product is designed to be, and if that is the case will planning not have painted themselves into a corner if half the work has already been done ? This isn't anti Tevir, well done, this is anti the bureaucratic shithouses in planning led by the count !

    Gas bill

    You would be better sending a letter to my dog !
  23. Amazing how the taxpayers aren't permitted to know what is being done with their money !
  24. I like this quote from Quayle almost perfect in its irony ... I am a firm believer in diversity of opinion and thought.
