    Thanks, Dilli, but I am not a mod, there has been some technical issue which has made me one. 

    All is well in my camp, hope for the same in yours

     

    Oh. Ok. Yes Me and mine are good. Glad “ Glad “ is fine. Doing my best to keep the gob shut, but failing badly at the moment. Just can’t stop saying it as I see it. That apparently is not the thing to do, so just posting by the day. Strange forces are afoot. :)

    This is the classic definition of travesty.

    What should have happened is the bit of IOMG should have checked out the legal position first, before nominating him for the biosphere award.  If they found irregularities, then there should have been a conversation.

    "Ok chum, you have done fantastic work in clearing this bit of land, that we couldn't be arsed doing btw, but you really shouldn't  be here.  So, why don't we make you a steward and your rent will be your work to keep it clean and pollution free?  Then  we can nominate you for a biosphere, or whatever  award.  That way we are both doing the right thing.  Oh, and thank you:  You are doing so much more for the environment than the post-pubescent eco warriors currently "sacrificing their education" on Prospect Hill. (But really missing double maths)."

    Nice to see that you are back as a mod. Hope all went well with your family issues :thumbsup: It doesn’t look like I will be here too long so thanks for all you have helped me with in the past.

    Good luck .

    I agree about the kids on Prospect Hill, but the guy knew it was not his land, Some dipstick in the CS cocked up, but it is still not his land.

    I don’t know anything about what was involved in the so called biospere bollocks, but ATEOTD, he is out of order.

    On the other hand, Govts and health gurus everywhere are encouraging everyone to get more exercise, mild or gentle.

    On the other other hand, did it need 'Storage Pods ', would 50 quid posts to chain your bike to have sufficed?

    On the other other other hand, if you've spent 3000 quid on your beloved bike would you want it to be on display in a line of chain ups for a bike thief with a bolt cutter to choose the model on his list?

    On the other xxxx hand, if you've spent 3000 quid on a effin bike, should your wife and kids lock you in a cycle pod and not let you out till you've come to your senses????

    Correct . £3000 on a bike is mental.

    It’s an accurate response if you read it. They helped him with the plot then registered a legal dispute over it - presumably just to fuck him over after the event. You seem to be the regular injection of childishness to these boards. I stick to facts. Are you bored as your pointless chum Neil isn’t revving up enough people on here anymore and these boards have been quite nice and full of good debate for a few weeks now? 

    Keep digging. Look at what you post. You claim to be many things on here , from a big employer to some sort of climate expert.

    I believe you are neither , just a bullshitter. You won’t bully me off here believe me. You have tried for over a year now, and all you have achieved is getting me a few more bans. 

    Take a look at yourself. How do you think people view you ?

    Yes the masses of public money sunk into useless, loss making, Victorian scrap by Longworth really has transformed everything. 

    Yet another infantile reply. Keep it up.

    But they helped him research the plot, watched him build the house, used it themselves at the Biosphere Awards to make themselves look good - then kicked him in the balls and pulled the rug from under him. They could have decided to charge him a peppercorn rent if the land subsequently ended up in dispute (it’s an empty patch of land with no other value to anyone) - but we’re civil servants so best act like a bunch of unhelpful paper pushing fucking arseholes instead.

    Not unsurprising to see you standing up for such a bunch of power crazed wankers. Hopefully one will need a reference soon. 

    Childish response was not a surprise.

    What the Halsall fella posted is interesting and informative. How is that settling scores? 

    Long story, best told by W H himself.

    Ian L may not be a saint, but he has done more for our trains, buses and trams that the previous lot put together. Time will prove that, if you can’t see it now.

    Well I don't know how to copy an email onto this or any forum.

     

    Here's what I can copy though for what use it will be --- 

    Dated  14 Nov from DVSA about driving a Manx registered car on UK roads ---  Thank you for your email. Your query will be dealt with by a member of our team, or passed on to an appropriate person or team, as soon as possible. We will endeavour to reply within our agreed service level of 10 working days. ----

     

    Dated Nov 18 th. 

    Dear Mr Price

     

     ----Thank you for your email enquiry dated 15 November 2019, concerning driving a Manx car with no UK MOT on UK roads.

     

    If you meet the criteria provided by my colleague below on 15 November 2019 you should be ok. However, you may also wish to check with your vehicle Insurance Company. It may also be advisable to carry a copy of your IOM registration document and ferry tickets when travelling in the UK.

     

    DVSA can only provide advice for the MOT regulations of vehicles that are MOT tested in England, Scotland or Wales.

     

    For information on road legality, you will need to address your enquiry to the Department for Transport, as they deal with the Construction and Use Regulations and Road Law ---

     

    (itit doesn't.  Without a valid MOT it CAN'T meet the criteria.  Next came the next mail from a different department who had my query escalated to them.)

     

    Then dated 18th   ----- I can confirm that we have received your enquiry and will endeavour to respond within 20 working days ----

     

    so no bullshit, but definitely an open issue.  It really does look as if this is a thing that has fallen between the cracks.

    up until now anyway.

    The Price isn’t always right eh ?

    The "man" is dangerous though..No wonder kids are mentally depressed with his sort on the go.It is time Social Services were on the case for child abuse.Imagine being told throughout your school career that you will die if nothing is done.And then in a single day the population of the World increases by three times that of this Island.Anything that is done on the Isle Of Man is futile.

    I always find the staff at the welcome centre friendly and helpful. Maybe it is your demena/ dementia. I never could spell proppa

    Under Manx law, if you can prove that a piece of land has not been used for something like ten years, you can claim title to it. This is probably being done to stop him from claiming ownership?

    Wrong.

    on your thinking , I will claim North Barrule as mine.

    Wow - your knee bending, deference and pathetic snivelling to the Government plumbs new depths.

    This bloke is actually the embodiment of a Likeable Rogue - doing his own thing harming no one and being different to the majority

    You'll be cleaning Howard's tractor for free tomorrow - Stooge.....

    Sorry, did somebody say something ?
