  1. I have a hotel booked near Central London for 7 days, but I can't make it anymore, and can't get a refund. The Booking cost £343, and I am giving this away for free. THE DATES ARE: 25/01/2014 for 7 Nights (from THIS Saturday) The Hotel is right next to the Jubilee and Metropolitain Lines. It is a Double Room. Get in touch if you or someone you know would be interested!
  2. This really should have been a job for the administrators. I know people fret at the sound of that word, however quite often good comes out of it. Buildings/Businesses sold off to new investors quite often means jobs are saved anyway, and more investment in the Island sourced. Not sure this bail out was a good idea, and as a big supporter of Bell as I am, this is a poor call Alan.
  3. I must admit I found the survey very strangely worded. I do myself listen to Manx Radio, mainly for the news, and Stu Peters when I get the chance. However I have to say, the questions were very poorly phrased and structured. The questions assumed everyone filling in the survey listened to every radio station on the Island. Hence I guess why the majority of responses for 3FM/Energy sit in the Neutral space, i.e the people answering the particular question didn't actually listen to them, maybe only Manx Radio? I myself only listen to Manx Radio and Energy FM, however I had to answer and rate Three FM? Where is the logic in that? Surely a 'I don't listen to this station or N/A' would have been suitable to give a more accurate measure. Plus no doubt a certain percentage of people completing the survey will have put negative feedback for a station they might just dislike for various other reasons. I.E a 50/60 Year Old who is a loyal Manx Radio listener may never listen to anything else, and hate 'modern music', so might just put negative scores down for everything but Manx Radio. It is a shame as it would have been good for Manx Radio RAJAR 'doubters', to have been been proven wrong, and to prove that MR is doing a good job, as I think they do. However I have to be honest in my analysis as I have some expertise in this subject, and I don't believe the survey proves a great deal, for 2 main reasons. 1) It looks like only Manx Radio listeners completed it (poor targeting), 2) Poor/amateur structuring (which leaves it open for criticism)
  4. I am guessing you are referring to his Facebook comments which I also seen, and actually if you read them again you will find you have misread them and he wasn't answering that person at all. I don't know Juan that well, but worked with him many years ago and i'm guessing he ain't on here so thought I would defend him as your comments are incorrect, maybe you should correct them. Or maybe you should be more careful to get your facts right before posting up peoples private Facebook messages, Juan unlike me obviously doesn't vet his friend requests! I know for certain if I posted anything on Facebook it is for my chosen audience and won't be posted on forums!! You are quite correct, I did misread the copy of the facebook exchange which was emailed to me by one of his 'friends', so I have amended my comments in the quote above. Is that better? Much better! Now it is factually correct

  6. Not sure I agree @hissingsid that previous Election Results are something to go on. Just because Linda for example didn't get elected on what I believe was her first attempt at doing so, shouldn't automatically mean she would be crap in LegCo, and same goes for Michael. You would need to consider the strength & political experience of the candidates they were up against. Some areas on the IOM are content with their MHKS and therefore wouldn't even look at new candidates. I have done literally 5 mins of research on the internet on both Linda & Michael, and they both could bring vast amounts of experience to LegCo.
