i want to ask why some companies advertise on island. you have the MEA, Manx gas, steam packet all advertising in the papers and on the radio. where else are we going to get these services from? this must cost a fortune, when prices are so high for their customers. and to rub salt into the wounds manx gas have the audacity to sponser a team in the TT, wasting money that could be passed on to the customers to reduce their massive bills. im sure as pensioners are freezing this winter they can take some comfort in the fact that somewhere there is a motorcycle being prepared for next years spectator cull, paid for by their winter fuel allowence.
i cant believe this thread you lot paying through the nose for drink, being served by rude surley ignorant staff who obviously dont enjoy their work. you spend most of your night trying to catch the attention of of some uneducated idiot who is serving and chatting to their mates. ending the night defending yourself from some hooded moron who cant hold his drink. then to get home you have to try to find an overpriced taxi to allow you to pay through the nose to travel two miles, sitting in someone elses vomit or worse. i on the other hand have friends over for the evening with reasonably priced booze from tesco served in warm friendly surroundings. not having to worry about pissheads or ignorant staff. and no rip off taxi for me, or my guests, just a pleasant evening. i would love to see all the pubs on this island close, and all of these greedy landlords sent packing. lets open a few more tescos instead and put them all out of business. H&B could hike their prices as much as they want to then
i think the MHKs who voted for this pension shake up are going to regret their decision. all of the people affected are now considering their future on the island. these MHKs have squandered the pension fund on stupid capital projects and now expect the government workers to pay for their stupidity. we have a hospital that cost the tax payer double the origional estimate, a sewrage system that will never work, and the MEA is a bottomless pit that will haunt us into the next decade. the new prison will also be well over budget but it does'nt matter the tax payer will foot the bill. whats next? the airport extension lets see who gets the contract for that gravy train. ( sorry capital project ). i think its about time the uk government took control of this rock and stopped these people messing with the future of hard working people. cutting of the pension link with the uk is going to kill the health service on this island. no health care proffessional will come here to work when the island is being run by the cast of sesame street.
