  1. The Kate Beacroft award for Peace and Harmony goes to.....Kate Costain.
  2. How could you not predict Manx Gas for the Customer Service award???
  3. Saddle, Albert or the cruise liners own bar. Yeah it's a toughie.
  4. It's been on the web for a few hours... https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/steam-packet-accused-of-discrimination/ The govt mouthpiece on another loosely owned govt monopoly. Could be damaging to the local image if the red-tops get hold of it before the whole story gets out, and experience of the media, tells me that there is more to this....
  5. I went to the bank to put a cheque in and I was told that it would take 5 working days to clear, but if I took a photo of it for the app it would clear straight away.
  6. I've had an account in the Castletown branch for 40yrs or so. I guess the population then was around the 55,k mark. I had to go in there once a week as opposed to now which is closer to twice a year. There was certainly demand for 3 full time banks in Castletown back then, so I'm inclined to believe that times have changed rather than economy of scale.
  7. It's nothing to crow about.
  8. No definately NOT taking the piss. It's a great show with loads of texts and comments which is a continuation of talking heads humour, but without the political side of his previous show. It's going to be show of choice for me. Good shout Dilly.
  9. Atleast 2 listeners.
  10. He read it out verbatim within 5 minutes. He added that he doesn't do requests, only suggestions.
  11. I've sent an email to the studio and name dropped you. I'll be tuned in til midnight and what I've heard sounds very good.
  12. So is Stu worth tuning (with a 'g') in to or do I keep it on Radio 4?
  13. The weather forecast was bad enough to cancel some games early but there was enough in the forecast to delay the decision for the Scotland game. In hindsight, the IRB (or whoever), made the correct calls out of a bad situasian.
  14. But This is not an argument...This is an M&S argument.
  15. Maybe Skelly made them change their minds regarding the Manx redundancies.
  16. I would like to know her take on Thomas Cook going up and what the medias take on it is.
  17. I'll see your 30 and raise you 10 more. In all seriousness though, I hope the redundancies are voluntary.
  18. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=50913&headline=Job losses at PokerStars&sectionIs=news&searchyear=2019
  19. The 2 of Joey and then 2 of number 7 (in colour) look like Castletown Corner on the southern 100.
  20. In my day I had to walk a mile and a half to school whatever the weather because both parents were working 8-5. All the teachers, bar 1 or 2, walked aswell. Soft as shite kids these days and these are the kids who will be paying my pension. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/headteacher-calls-for-one-way-system-for-student-safety/
  21. And what would the pass rate be? Who can understand women?
  22. Yep, it is just a place to slag other posters off. MF doesn't seem to 'break' news nowadays. It just seems a place to react to the stuff that is released by radio, tv, papers or facebook. Obviously there are the odd exceptions and the one that springs to mind is the prom works cracking, but they are few and far between.
  23. I think someone has been telling Porkies.
