  1. No - in the UK, if a car fails an MOT test, you can drive it home or to another garage to get it fixed. You can then drive it back to a test centre to get it retested. I can't believe that would be 'in every case regardless of condition'. I have heard of rare cases when the test centre has forbidden the vehicle to be driven from the test centre and the car has to be recovered, But if its just a bulb or a Cv boot etc you can drive it away at your own risk. To be fair in most cases in the UK the MOT station will call you over and sort most repairs as they Go!!!
  2. Not sure i would want 69 patriot missiles on manx soil.....

  8. Theoretically, but they are about to expand very rapidly to be the 7th largest bank in uk by the end of next year. So expect ethics to go out the window. Well they sell fair trade tea!!!!
  9. they are alright to borrow off but i wouldnt trust them with hard cash.....in fact i wouldnt trust any off them with hard cash buy a bentley instead thats the way forward......
  10. What on earth makes you think that senior civil servants know what they're on about? Words fail me... if you read it again PK i dont think Sid is saying the senior civil servants have the answers but the MHK's don't have the life skills to question there suggestions..... just read it again slowly......
  11. That is the stupidest thing I have ever heard. They get paid too much. By far the most important qualification of a politician is the desire to make decisions & do things in the public interest & have the common good at heart. You can't learn that, you've either got it or you haven't. Business men/ women do not necessarily make good politicians. They may be very successful at making money but government is about far more than that. You could teach a monkey that it is good to keep costs down & income up. Personal greed is not a good way to attract potential politicians. Pay them less that's what I say. At the risk of being personally attacked by you Monkey, To many cooks spoil the broth... we have to many cooks and not very good ones... Pay peanuts and you get Monkeys (no pun intended) we need people who can balance the books and negotiate good deals for us and see opportunities or even better create opportunities for our Island and the people who live here to be fair that's what most successful business people do!!! We have some farmers a mental heath nurse, postman, school teacher, chemist, and various other not insignificant professions but not one person stands out among the crowd to give us confidence for the future, I voted for a man who has run his own successful business for 20+ years and has done a good job but he didn't get in... What i am saying is Quality not Quantity......
  12. I dont think we pay MHK's enough.... Honestly think about it if we paid mega bucks we would attract proper business men/woman with proper track records to steer us in right direction the same could be said for MP's... Fewer of them more money per head it's the way forward.
  13. Got stuck in the weather last week boat cancelled moved booking made it home on wednesday instead of monday....Blah Blah... worst bit was when i got on the boat no cabin which was pe booked.... But when i phoned the SPC today to get a refund on the cabin i got a real nice chap on the phone could not have been more helpfull and to top it all off the refund had already gone through and an extra £30 to say sorry.....I was made up its not the money i spend £10,000 a year on travel but the fact it was done before i had to chase.... Good work SPC reservations staff you could teach the top brass a thing or two.......
