  1. It will, apparently, be closely monitored. and fitted with stocks.
  2. It probably is a bit more than a quick mow once a week, but at those prices, why not just employ someone, supply the kit needed and probably get all the work done for a third of the money. My source will remain anonymous, as it could be disasterous for them if they were found out. Let me add that they are very reliable.
  3. No idea, alibaba, do you know?
  4. What use is a fat impotent old man if we're trying to re-build civilisation from scratch? Pray tell us how you know this fact, TJ?
  5. Not bad, BigDave! £30k, per annum, for one hour per week. Contract went to tender to approved contrators only. Surely, with this and another contract just outside Peel, tendered out at £100k, the government should have employed someone full time, to do this work?
  6. Make your own? OH did, with wood from Haldane Fisher and a circular, up and down-ey saw thingy (tech term) been up seven years now and still looks good.
  7. Mow grass? Old play park, Strang Close, Union Mills, plus another small area nearby. OH says 'could be done with a decent petrol mower', couple hours per week approx. answers below please.
  8. I've thought carefully about this scheme and come to an obvious conclusion. I'd rather pay for a work-shy long-term unemployed person to do something rather than pay a work-shy long-term unemployed person to do nothing. If he/she can't find work on the Island then he/she is probably either too lazy or too fussy. In either case he/she should leave to seek employment elsewhere. After all, hundreds of enterprising job-seekers from the EU have found the Isle of Man and taken employment that he/she has rejected. So, are you suggesting someone should uproot family and move to the UK etc., in the hopes of finding work? People who reject job offers lose their jobseekers allowance (which is nothing new). A lot of unemployed are of the older generation nowadays, not just neets and training would be a waste of time, as they usually have a lot of experience/qualifications already. The IT market is dead for the over 30's. Why pay £30k per year to an older person, when you can get a post grad for £18k? Could the government not offer the jobseekers allowance to smaller companies, as a wage help if they take on an unemployed person, or help with the cost of training/qualifications to help someone into a position? The long term savings could make it worthwhile.
  9. 'Stop!' (in the name of love) = Diana Ross (no relation to Nick Ross...)
  10. Alex Bradley? you mean Alex Brindley, by chance?
  11. Tea and cakies only, with lots of refined backbiting talk. A most enjoyable afternoon!
  12. Can residents take three months off? 3 months off paying tax, rates, parking charges, utilities? Don't worry esteemed MHK's, we'll keep things going for you.
  13. I've lost a few friends to aircrashes (including pertrol pigeons) and witnessed one. I still am happy to use citywing. Private planes from Braddan Airfield I DO draw the line at.
  14. Don't think we can grow enough here to feed every head on the Island, so that idea's out the window.
