    Ramsey, the jewel of the north.
  1. ...as a typical taxi driver I am able to drive from my house to the airport or Douglas rarely touching my brakes or bothering with the likes of indicators or mirrors or keeping two hands on the wheel while simultaneously using a mobile and a radio and counting me money, because I read the road and anticipate where problems might arise by assuming I'm the only one on the road and sodding everyone else - and then charging the poor sucker sat in the back scared out of his wits a fortune for the privilige. Fixed Genius!!! FAF
  2. Don't introduce new ideas to the debate, we've got him on the run. If you delete your post I'll delete this and we're back to him arguing muslim memory man allah, or is it muhammad or george for that matter.
  3. Some of them could listen to a lecture and then repeat it again from memory afterwards. A lot of the ahadith were preserved thanks to the powerful memories of those people. Not very powerful then, so the whole book is hearsay. I rest my case Your Lord.
  4. I do own and ride a bicycle, I also have a license to drive anything at any weight and length. I actually spend a lot of time behind a steering wheel or set of handlebars. I've held a license for over 35 yrs without any endorsement. I've only been involved in two collisions, one a rear ender and the other when I was a passenger. How is careful consideration exampled by continually heavy braking, I am able to drive from my house to the airport or Douglas rarely touching my brakes because I read the road and anticipate where problems might arise. So today I hate 'R' plate drivers who think they are the dogs and everybody else is there for target practice.
  5. Nope. the civil service (and I'm assuming the MHK's) all got a one off non pensionable lump sum of £300 each for 2009/10, and have been given a pay freeze for this year. It has also been mooted that the pay freeze will be a 5 year thing too. Add to this the inflation rate currently standing at 5.3%, and with the proposed pension reforms leading to up to 5% more contributions it is pretty much in real terms a large pay cut It was actually £200 - before tax and NI at the higher rate. And you'll discover MHKs didn't get it.
  6. You really should reappraise your driving style. If you're "slamming on" a lot it kind of indicates you are driving too fast and without reading the road properly. And flashing your lights is meant to be used at night instead of using the horn when it would be illegal. You flashing just indicates your presence, people are right to wait for you to pass. If you want to let people out you should slow down and wave your hand to indicate so.
  7. Hahahahhahahahah. Not one iota, anywhere, anytime, beyond her being a figment of the imagination, ever.
  8. Surreal, what's a Ccv?
  9. People who use derogatory terms for those suffering from cerebral palsy as a cheap insult against those whose musical choices they disagree with.
  10. That Mr Moore looks a bit shifty.
  11. Shoprite car park in Ramsey, because the commissioners won't give us a taxi rank.
  12. My money is on Roden, firm but fair and a good communicator. Plus he's already got a wig so it is a money saving option.
  13. Maybe, Homer forbid, that he actually listened to what the electorate said in the recent by-election. It is obvious people are well miffed with this present government and want more openness and accountability by the fact that the successful candidate and his nearest rival are both on that ticket. Refreshing that someone considered a maverick to a degree is feeling confident enough in the run-up to the general election to air his views in a controlled way. I have heard more than one MHK talking about accountability as an important issue in the 'near future' (read election). Of course this sudden concern may well disappear once re-elected, like many past manifesto commitments by 'independents' , but it is nice to see while it lasts. I see Phil as one of the few conviction politicians in the house and not riding on the coattails of his friends or family connections. Good on him but I don't see CM as an ambition he harbours, quite likely just the reverse as i suspect he favours a popularly elected CM rather than the 'old boys club' and 'buggins turn' we enjoy at the moment.
