  1. By the time the millions of tourists can come over and enjoy the new and improved promenade, most businesses will probably have shut down because of all the incompetence surrounding the whole shebang. As for now, imagine Guernsey residents excitedly booking their flights to the Isle of Man, only to find out that they have ended up in Beirut instead!
  2. "Save money" by cutting the tram line short... All of a sudden, a sea wall becomes vital. These guys have no problems whether hand sanitizer is available or not, their palms are greased well.
  3. Could be, what it being a bank holiday today, they have pre-recorded what they are playing all day, pretending they are indeed live. They have done it many times before.
  4. When they were all "advised" to hold hands together, because these guys pay advisors on how to get someone to wipe their backsides the most expensive way possible (not necessarily the best way). If they blag it right, "we saved the island", but if it all goes tits up (as usually does with their decisions), blame the advise they got.
  5. Crazy how every single country decided the "wait and see" approach was the best way going forward, when learning from others' mistakes was there for all to see.
  6. Every single country has had the attitude of "but it's not happening here", not learning from other countries who thought exactly the same before them, until it hits so quickly, and so badly, that everyone and everything is overwhelmed.
  7. Yep, my sarcasm will probably be around longer than my job. But the upside is that millions of tourists will be coming over here to see the wonderful promenade, all year round, rather than just for a few days each year. That's why they're doing it, right? Definitely not to line each other's pockets, it's for the island's best.
  8. Not one of them gives a flying f***. Not the guys at the top, not the guys pretending to do any work. Their wages are guaranteed, no matter how bad they are at what they're supposed/pretending to be doing. Yet here we are, those working in any of the businesses in the "war zone" that is the main thoroughfare of our capital city, s****ing ourselves, not knowing if we'll have a job tomorrow/next week/month. But who cares? The lampposts are going to look amazing when they're eventually done.
  9. The companies doing the work (without actually doing much work) have copped on, very early on, that this is the biggest contract of their lives. So what if the common people are disgruntled? In a few decades, everybody would have forgotten what a shambles this has all been, while their families' futures are all set up to be very comfortable. I'm told it's all gonna look so good, tourists would love to visit, until you realise it's so much cheaper to visit other countries, with better food, culture, and weather, for less than half the price.

    I travelled to London to renew my passport last July. Used an expired passport after travel agent said you can use one if it's expired by less than 2 years (don't know what difference 2 or 3 or 5 years do). Had no problems whatsoever, though on the way back it was pointed out to me that my passport was expired.
  11. Jurgen is still alive and kickin, still laughing out very loud when he cracks a joke. A lovely, genuine guy. When someone bought his restaurant on the prom, I don't think he expected the name to be moved to the current location and to be honest he had some reservations about his name being on that door. I can now see why.
  12. So if he is gay (and I'm not saying he is or he isn't), who's that unsuspecting lady sitting next to him in what looks like a restaurant (and I'm not saying it is or it isn't). Also, the guy sitting next to him in the other photo, does he know that now people might assume that he is gay (and I'm not saying he is or he isn't), or that people will now associate him with a guy being labelled as a conman (and I'm not saying he is or he isn't). All I can say is that this forum has done much better investigative work than the newspapers, radios, government combined.

    Artist in residence... to describe a chef... it's on a menu outside one of the main hotels in Douglas.

    That menu does look appetising, and very very reasonably priced. Well done and I hope they keep doing well.
