  1. 3 points have come out this thread. The public haven't got the slightest clue about how much of their tax payer funds are being spent on the event, due to lack of disclosed information and lack of oversight. Elements of the public (judging by the shower on this forum) just don't give a toss how much the event costs, possibly because they gain directly from it or are involved directly in it. Lastly, the public will never know how much the event is costing them, because I'm willing to bet no-one in a position to ask the question would dare put their neck on the line, because I imagine they would receive a similar response as seen here in this forum. One last thing to think about...If the public ceased to fund the event, would it still stand on its own two feet....
  2. But at least I am asking, where as it seems several forum residents are happy to live in blissful ignorance. But you're not asking anyone who could possibly give you an answer are you? People on this forum seem very interested when Pinewood was supposedly draining the public coffers. People on this forum seemed very upset about the Sefton and public money being involved. Mount Murray, etc, etc. Hell we even had a 100+ page thread about some bloke throwing up on a bus.... You mention the TT and all of a sudden no-one seems to give a fuck....
  3. Says the poster who wrongly claimed that bullfighting had been banned in Spain. And I was corrected using easily available information. Care to share the wealth of factual information you have pertaining to the actual costs of the TT?
  4. Agreed, you cant make the TT safe but I think they should at least remove some of the more dangerous parts that make bikes airborne. Doing so can only help the safety of the riders. But then where would the excitement be? Where would the fans get there "cheated death" performances?
  5. Judging by some of the outstanding driving (/sarcasm) I have seen over the last few days (in and around Douglas), I would have to disagree with you...
  6. But at least I am asking, where as it seems several forum residents are happy to live in blissful ignorance.
  7. But you have no way to substantiate your belief, for all you know it costs £35 million....but then the apathy I am seeing from some posters... However anyone who complains about government spending or a public service being cut because there isn't enough funds, yet supports the TT (despite not having the faintest idea what it actually costs) is a bloody fool. Its not like the Island is down the financial toilet or anything.....oh wait....
  8. Well they aren't called the Tickle Squad for a reason.... Why do people in uniform lock citizens up if they use force, but citizens are expected to admire people in uniform who use force? A citizen who uses force is a criminal, but someone wearing a uniform gets called a hero. I didn't realise that criminals follow rules of engagement, the Geneva Convention or are acting with Parliamentary Authority....

  10. And I'm asking you, without an FOI to force a response, do you genuinely think I would get a meaningful response? You answer my question and I'll answer yours. Answering questions with questions, are you a politician? No I haven't. And I'm guessing your response will justify why I haven't
  11. I imagine some Spanish people said the same about Bull Fighting before it was banned....
  12. And I'm asking you, without an FOI to force a response, do you genuinely think I would get a meaningful response?
  13. Not sure what you had been smoking when you typed that... What about birthdays, anniversaries, family gatherings, hell what about the birth of a grandchild... Like I said, given a choice between a dead father and a live one......
  14. Without a FOI, how much of a genuine response do you think I'll get?
