  1. Agree - I'd go further and say that families should have been allowed to visit last year - sponsored by family members here and strictly adhering to the isolation/quarantine rules, but what do I know?
  2. Yes absolutely. And they're very fond of spouting forth wisdom on social distancing etc, but when enquiring how they would fund restrictions like this on business, there is only silence and repetition of fatality figures as though others aren't aware of them. They're a doom coven who appear to want restrictions forever.
  3. They really needed to get someone scientific in (with no invested interest in anything other than sanity and truth) to say "You're all barking mad if you believe this sort of shite, now go home and due something useful". That would be a video worth watching. Unfortunately however, things have got to the stage where if you try and ignore or challenge these people, they will automatically assume you're "in on the lie..... sheeple, baaa etc". Perhaps laughter is the answer.
  4. This pandemic, if nothing else, has opened my eyes to the fact that many people whom I've always considered to be sensible and rational, are out and out nutters / conspiraloons. Spouting theories (gleaned from Youtube, Fox news etc) that I don't think even a self-respecting sci-fi author would use in the most outlandish of novels.

    Manx Care

    Whilst I agree that Manx Care has a lot to do in terms of improving services and reform, I've always felt that more should be done to manage expectations. I worked in a patient facing role at Noble's for quite a few years and patients were phoning a few days after referral by GP, asking when they were to be seen, not having been informed that there was a wait. There are still quite a few no-shows and again, little is being done to manage these. Patients were also quite surprised and sometimes taken aback at being discharged from a consultant's clinic when there was no need for them to be seen again. It was as though they needed to be looked after by a consultant rather than a GP.
  6. This is up there with the people who still 'quarantine' their post - and spend ages scrubbing every inch of their Tesco trolley with those wipes. All whilst not wearing a mask.
  7. Correct! And most of them are either retired, semi-retired or have little/no skin in the game. They take great delight in sitting back and crying about the need for distancing (no plan as to how to keep business forced to operate at 50% capacity) or border changes but offering nothing really useful.
  8. Remember a couple of years back when there was a plan to demand ID from passengers before getting on the ferry? The aim of all this is probably to create a 'border' force and bring this crap back in even after the need for faffing about with landing forms etc. They are using drugs as an excuse so some petty tinpot Nazi can fantasize over ordering people about even more at the ports.
  9. Some absolute toxic bile on the FB IOMN&P group thread. One of my comments was removed - not for profanity, but for use of a forbidden word : gammonati.
  10. Whereas the GMP don't appear to know when they're being kidded - because they vote the same old people in at every election (well mostly) and then moan when little or nothing changes.
  11. He can go and live on the Calf with that stupid cow from the Guardian and the rest of the local doom coven.
  12. Agree 100% with this. Nowhere can you find the information that vaccination significantly reduces transmission anywhere. I'm sick of seeing comments "but vaccination doesn't stop you getting it or passing it on'. It does - not 100% but enough for most people. It's fear fear fear all the way with the MSM. Except for rags like the Blackshirt Bugle which tends to demand an end to lockdown, but then prints headlines screaming of 'deadly mutant' strains. At home, I've stopped listening to the BBC because of crap like 'are you worried about socialising again?'. If people want facts about what happens in a population with a high % vaccinated, look at the data coming out of Israel!
  13. A swathe needs to be cut through the CS for everyone at SEO level and above. If they're not doing an essential job, then out they should go! Unfortunate yes, and people in these jobs have families and livelihoods, but the IOM can't afford it anymore. As for the CS - why can't MHKs come out and say when they're being frustrated by the collective? If these are unprecedented times in terms of health/travel/work etc, then why can't we have a political upheaval and some effort at least towards bringing the IOM to good governance.
  14. If you're waiting in considerable pain for any treatment at Nobles, or if you're in need of a dentist, some input/help for a family member with complex/special needs, then basically IOMG are basically telling you to sod off, as they'd rather bung £5M on an old boat. £5M! As with other heritage entities, they should all be privately funded by enthusiasts/charity or whatever. Not vast amounts of public money. Any Tynpotwald member who votes for or promotes this should have their oft-expressed wish to serve the GMP seriously challenged because it's obviously a load of sh*te.
  15. They might as well cancel all gigs from off Island artists for the rest of the year, plus TT, S100 & MGP for next year if they're going to wait for the UK case rate to drop. It will rise with things opening up more, but if hospitalisations and deaths don't rise, and IOMG carry on as we are, it will be years before Manx hospitality etc can benefit. Perhaps they're moving so slowly in the hope that all the roadworks will finally be finished before they let the tourists in.
