    Shoprite, the last straw!

    The posters have been out in the shops for the past month so you might have known this was coming into force today ? Tesco also charge for their bags?
  2. MT will shortly be offering Fibre, which doesn't require a landline.. "Select locations" only though https://www.manxtelecom.com/personal/internet/broadband/new-broadband-services-personal/fibre-expression-interest

    Ronaldsway Airport

    Works well though. I did a connection to Newark a couple of weeks ago, only 1 hour 20 minutes between landing in Dublin and flight to USA Departing. Pre-Clearence took only a few minutes. Total time IOM > USA was around 10 hours and bags were one of the first on the belt at the other end! Agree they could strengthen the connections available though, they could attract more passengers from here connecting that way.

    Easyjet have put the reason for the cancellations is "A de-icing issue at IOM Airport" Perfectly believable they've run out of de-icer. They have previous for it.

    Other ferries are operating to Liverpool / Holyhead. Not Heysham. Both the Birkenhead berths are (I presume) occupied overnight. This might have been a good time to use Holyhead after the trial they did the other summer ? Suppose too short notice to get that into place though

    Can you please suggest what Plan B you'd put in place ? If the sea is too rough to sail. It's too rough to sail. Full Stop. What possible Plan B can they have.

    TT 2017

    Isle of Man Constabulary Media Page 14 mins · Officers have just had cause to deal with a number of youths in the Lower Dukes Road area of Douglas who were under the influence of some sort of substance. They were all treated as a medical emergency and have been taken to Hospital for treatment. During the incident damage was caused to vehicles and one of the youths had to be restrained due to his violent behaviour which was caused by the substance taken. In these types of incidents getting persons to medical treatment ASAP is our primary concern. Officers are conducting a full investigation into this matter and a further update will follow.

    TT price rise

    La Piazza have put a picture of their 'TT Menu' on Facebook this evening which begins Saturday evening It's a cut down version of their normal menu with another £1 - £3 on the normal prices for every single item Dreadful A margharita pizza tonight would've been £7.95... same pizza on the 'TT Menu' is £9.50. Joke.
