    I usually opine that Government couldn't run a bath, in this case however its got bigger apparently it's a swimming pool!
  2. Of course in respect of Bell he did have previous for misleading Tynwald whilst in public office didn't he ? I agree with the poster who said that it is largely irrelevant how much we did or didn't make, ( although it would have been better to have been able to be open with the results, not hidden and unquantifiable as much of the murky money swilling around seems to have been!), the issue here is public officials throwing money around (which I understand was contrary at the very least to the standing rules on investments) which wasn't theirs to throw around without a care! IMO this same attitude still pervades our employed and elected persons today. The island has many societal problems which need fixing and need investment which are not going to be solved by throwing away public money. Anyone who can shrug their shoulders at the frittering away of 26 million of public money and seek to justify it by saying we made money elsewhere, is and was not fit to hold public office!
  3. Maybe the island became a Pariah for the very reasons that Eddie and his co-horts did their level best not to answer any questions about the film industry in public ! their disregard for public money was legendary and Bell got snotty whenever anyone had the temerity to question him ! It is much the same now no searching questions asked and public money lashed around at will I mean a million quid to support a fluxing radio station !
  4. Policing on the island carried on in spite of Culverhouse not because of him !
  5. Ahh but by the time we've read this ........ !!!
  6. and its difficult to get planning permission to build on them even for our darling developers!
  7. I do hope so given the lack of scrutiny at all levels!
  8. I am a comeover, so you can get your flaming in early should you wish, however a 30year comeover! At the moment I feel that Government here from Comin down to local authorities have never been less in touch with the population than they are now, and carry on regardless of what people think of them. Profligate stupidity is rife and they couldn't negotiate their collective way out of a paper bag! The negativity people feel about Government is everywhere except within the organisation and the island is over regulated with civil servants justifying their non jobs with ever more ludicrous schemes for the rest of us to genuflect to! The enquires they hold into their own misdeeds are a joke and well know that any enquiry will end with the words "lessons will be learned" which never happens. This thread is just symptomatic of the madness which pervades the corridors of power when intellectually challenged people are let loose with the purse strings ! Coffee time ! LOL
  9. As do most people where forward planning and fiscal responsibility is concerned !
  10. Better to spend the cash on a plaque saying "There used to be a mayoral chain here but it has been mislaid"
  11. Maybe they could do this for Douglas somewhere on the prom !
  12. Who cares as long as it caters for the whims of a developer and their profits ! apparently the Ballasalla one is largely funded by taxpayers !
  13. What you need is 300 more houses and a "Bypass" like Ballasalla ! As a precursor to that, you also need political representatives with the brain of a dead mollusc ! Ideal solution !
  14. Yup, in respect of some of them, in a village inhabited only by idiots they would still be the village idiot !
  15. I watched a video of some people prancing around in a circle to loud music, looked like some aged hippies ! oh and some young unemployables ! can anyone tell me how this helps save the planet ! looks like a request for more mental health funding to me ! Oh and before I get flamed I fully support cleaning up our planet and animal conservationism, I just don't see how this forwards the agenda !
  16. Mike Culverhouse managed a lot of photo ops !! LOL
  17. .... and if so exactly why it should be looked at !
  18. If you were to have a league of bullshitters in Government or CS Roles, who would appear where ? This could catch on each time they proclaim some horseshit or other a bit like fantasy football !
  19. Not for much longer the way this shower are pissing it away !!
  20. That may well be fact I accept, however some of the intangibles bandied about were clearly fantasy by observing what was happening in real life ! None of that success excuses the rule breaking and obfuscation of a number of people at the hub of the film malarkey, hopefully some of that will be exposed and prevented from happening again. Time after time ad nauseum we learn of massive amounts of money needlessly poured down the drain, whilst our frontline services are pathetic, in some cases due to lack of funding !
  21. Planning are a joke, regulation on top of regulation for regulations sake and the outcome depends solely on who you are !! Common sense aint that common!
  22. Especially the one where he calls someones concerns "Bollocks" you are right we are descending to the level of the UK !
