  1. Does anyone know why the medical director at nobles has gone? Is it anything to do with the change in ministers? Jugnu mhajan I think she was called, just been talking about it in the pub but no one seems to know why.
  2. Whoever takes the job on next should talk to the shop floor staff not the management. These ministers are being very badly advised by people trying to protect their own little empires. They are not being told the truth about what is going on at the hospital and this is why we have another resignation. You will not learn about the problems by sitting in an office. Staff on the wards are extremely unhappy and instead of recruiting nurses we get more managers. People retiring with huge payouts return to fill the job they left, on a much inflated salary. This removes promotion prospects for others who then move away to get the recognition they deserve. We are losing nurses and gaining managers and you wonder why we are overspent each year. We spend massive amounts sending patients away instead of getting the specialists to come here for a fraction of the cost. Cuts are being made at the wrong end, open your eyes and talk to the people who actually do the work.
  3. Does anyone know what's happening with catering at nobles? I've just been told by staff that they have been given 6 months notice, after which the entire service will be outsourced. Is this true?
  4. Cancel it nobody cares except a few rich boys playing with cars. We have enough road closures with the two death races and idiots on bycicles. Im sure when they renew the steampacket user agreement that fares to the island will come down
  5. I wonder if they drink the same going the other way? Maybe they know a blind eye is turned here so as not to upset the visitors. Real cops on the other side wont be so lenient.
  6. Saw the following on facebook and think there is reason for concern. Im all for freindly policing but should they be checking things like this. When bushy's closes where do all the bikes go? Are they pushing them back to the campsites? I was on today's 8.30pm STEAM RACKET sailing from Liverpool to the Isle of Man. Once I boarded I was shocked by the amount of bikers purchasing beer and other alcoholic beverages. As a concerned resident I brought this to the attention of the bar staff. Where they bluntly replied it's not their responsibility. I then asked another member of staff about the drinking where I was told ' It's what bikers do, it's what the Isle Of Man TT is all about.. drinking and riding ' - People wonder why there's so many deaths on our roads during the TT period. STEAM RACKET - MONEY OVER MORALS. Something has to be done .
  7. http://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/brewery-raises-beer-prices/ That should squeeze a few more quid from the visitors. Well done H&B for jumping on the rip off band wagon.
  8. They really are going to drive people away with crap like this. You can only squeeze so much out of people before it becomes impossible to live here. Everything is going up except wages and eventually something has to give. Get rid of the OFT that will save a lot of money on people who do nothing but scratch their arses all day. And where are our elected representatives? Have they got nothing to say about this? So much for looking after our interests. I just wish it was cheaper to convert to oil because i wouldn't think twice.
  9. Just read on manx radio that they are closing roads to help a company sell cars for £125,000. Its bad enough closing the roads we pay tax on for bike fest but now anyone wanting to sell shit on the island can just come over and do it. And all thiss before the usual TT closures. I hope it pisses down all weekend.
  10. Its time the parents were made responsible for the scum they are dragging up. Vandalism is the thin end of the wedge and they will move on to more serious crime. Make the parents pay for any damage instead of the tax payers. Im sure when they cant afford to buy fags and vodka they will start taking an interest in what this excrement is doing. I understand the police and courts are powerless to deal with them but they can deal with the cause of them. Piss poor parenting should be made illegal and they should be stopped from having more kids they cant be bothered to look after. Cut benefits for those who let their mistakes run wild
  11. http://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_474185.html Once again the feral youth are destroying Douglas. They will be dealt with robustly, my arse they will. They will get the usual tap on the wrist and told not to do it again. The law is no longer allowed to deal with animals like this and it will be the Douglas rate payer who foots the bill again. Until there is a consequence for their actions or their parents have to pay this will be the norm on the island.

    Thug life

    http://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/teens-parents-contacted-over-antisocial-behaviour/ Maybe its time to start prosecuting the parents of this feral scum roaming our streets. This sort of behaviour needs to be stopped now. They cant keep labelling these animals as having ADHD or aspergers and expecting law abiding people to pay for the damage they are causing. Insurance premiums keep rising because of mindless damage caused to cars and property. Lets pass the cost of repairs onto the parents and maybe they will take an interest in where their unwanted kids are at night. Stop treating these assholes with kid gloves and maybe the island will be safe for people to walk around at night again.

  14. Tesco deliver and have free parking. Shoprite free parking everything else on ebay or amazon, i dont see the problem. What they increase on parking they lose on vat. I havent been to douglas since november and cant see any reason to visit there in the near future.
  15. http://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/eastern-residents-question-planning-policy/ more development with a reducing population. What are the planners thinking of?
