  1. That’s what people don’t get. Unless these people are being re-charged back out to another contract somewhere else which pays DBC then they and the vehicles they use are a DBC fixed cost. It doesn't matter whether they’re emptying bins daily, weekly or monthly - the fixed costs will be roughly the same bar a bit of extra diesel usage. So how can fortnightly be saving any real money? The only possible savings can be on gate fees as they’re linked to frequency of loads picked up as everything else is basically fixed cost.
  2. I think you’re right. And the old flats across the road next to the Railway and the JTC and Portofino units in Quay West.
  3. I’d be surprised if he had as he’s also one of the backers behind the Hubb development of the old Anglo House so he owns most of the block.
  4. And the building just pizza and pasta are in as well.
  5. There isn’t a cogent argument at all as most people are now working out. It’s a half assed attempt to dress up cost savings as a recycling initiative. If it was about recycling then they’d have upped their game in several areas rather than be so lazy and half assed with it all.
  6. Where is the Chinese hotpot thing? It’s the best thing ever.
  7. It is very odd that someone claims that they don’t like the publicity around something but their biggest objection to the publicity seems to be that their name is spelled wrongly. As Oscar Wilde said: there is only one thing worse than being talked about. And that is not being talked about.
  8. The photos of your IOM Post induction course have just come through.
  9. I’d have thought an ASBO might be able to prescribe how many cars he’d be allowed to own and tax at one time. The man is clearly a serial pest. He’s not really that much different to the pissed bloke who is up every 3 months for wasting the time of the 999 service.
  10. Considering the activities of several Douglas Councillors on social media what do you believe these people should or should or shouldn’t doing on social media in comparison?
  11. FFS you’ve already been brainwashed by the “gig economy” nonsense as well. That is not the reason why the IOM PO can’t make any money. This is the man who announced on here a few years back that he wouldn’t buy Manx milk for his coffee shop as it was too expensive.
  12. No you can only get “terrible wine” in most brewery pubs for about £3 a glass more than it’s worth.
  13. It’s called Douglas Residents Against Fortnightly Refuse Collections.
  14. I have to say that’s one of the most boring car videos I’ve ever seen.
  15. Stu the service is generally crap. They really need to up their game and stop operating like it’s 1950.
  16. It was a sale and 25 year lease back arrangement. Presumably so that IOMG could get £45M back to piss away somewhere else. I think the second transaction is simply to do with something internal when the IOM Bank shifted the loan book to Jersey.
  17. So nearly 3 years to pay back his fine. What an oxygen thief.
  18. The whole thing was ridiculous and just shows how out of touch she is opining on a load of pie in the sky dreams emanating from her and cabinet office.
  19. 😂I’m tired of hearing her pretentious bullshit. The only reason she seems to have got the job is that 1. Alf couldn’t find anywhere else to put her and 2. She owns an electric car. That’s the sum total of all that’s needed for a £70k a year final salary pension job talking bollocks about things that will never happen.
  20. Do-gooder Daphne talked a load of absolute shite. You are right there is no point in having a climate change board because this is all about her silly beliefs and her completely blinkered view on what needs to be done. All she’s going to do this term is sit there and spew out the same load of old crap she believes in while tangibly doing nothing.
  21. But this was ways going to happen. I could have told you that this would happen because it’s what happens in the UK when local councils do this. Pathetic rules create equally pathetic behaviour.
  22. One is normally domestic rates, the other water and utilities.
  23. Tiny, tiny boxes not additional recycling bins.
