  1. Isle of Man media is full of such people.
  2. The motorist was removed from the vehicle after it was stabilised and treated by the IOM Ambulance Service. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/police-called-out-to-crash-in-south-of-island/ The world-beaters at Manx Radio News. My question is how they managed to fit the vehicle on the stretcher?
  3. She seems to be on every other jingle on Manx Radio. She presents programmes on Manx Radio. &c. https://www.manxradio.com/on-air/christy-dehaven/
  4. I don't think so. Ms DeHaven strikes me as someone who has done very, very well out of the Manx taxpayer given her ubiquity.
  5. That's Christy DeHaven.
  6. Like the late Harvey Briggs, Terry Cringle writes very enjoyably about the past. So, he makes the odd error. Who cares? At least he can string coherent sentences together, unlike most of IOM Newspapers.
  7. I’m afraid a petition of doleance at Tynwald is no longer fit for purpose on this Island I wouldn't rely on the say-so of anyone sloppy enough to come up with this kind of raving.
  8. Goldie the scat-muncher. Nice.
  9. Well, whoever does the court reports for IOM Newspapers is semi-literate. Something I've noticed for years, ever since Wotsherface shuffled off.
  10. I complained to the police that oiks near where I live were consistently parking at the entrance to a back lane, wiping their arses on the yellow lines and sticking two fingers up were an ambulance or fire-engine ever to need access. It is illegal. Full stop. Instead, I had to enter into a debate with an under-educated young constable about the rights and wrongs of the situation which has never improved since I raised it. What's the point of road markings if they are not enforced?
  11. Your posts almost exclusively on this subject give every indication of someone with a personal axe to grind.
  12. As far as I can see, most of the young 'uns missed the bit of their education where you learn how to express yourself clearly, intelligibly and eloquently.
  13. Don't think Mr Governor likes Margo the real star of the show.
  14. https://www.broadcastnow.co.uk/factual/the-best-little-prison-in-britain-itv/5141626.article Our eureka moment was discovering that the Isle of Man is not under MoJ jurisdiction. Development producer Will Brown got on to it and we headed there to meet governor Bob McColm. We immediately hit it off. In other words, we realised that, by some quirk of British constitutional history, we (groovy London media hipsters) had - to our astonishment - found a corner of the British Isles where we could have full access to filming in a prison in a style reminiscent of reality TV. In a manner which would NEVER be tolerated in the UK itself.
  15. Prison Governor: "If they [victims] want to switch on a television, that's a matter for them". Ten out of ten for empathy and respect for victims.
