    Don't be silly. Allinson has not complained because he will have 'read' it is as the sarcastic reply to your suggestion his Dept of Education would be swayed by the first few thoughts of a small recently formed group of people who want to make a difference to societal attitudes. Gladys, you are constantly trying to deride anyone or organisation that does not follow your view of racism and I'm failing to understand your logic, your reasons. You're an intelligent Woman, you say you have tried to '' Educate Yourself'', I know, it's a terrible phrase!... but Douglas Murray is not the person to help you with that. He's been around for many years, a couple of his blogs will not have given you an insight into his extremism anymore than putting on a Blackshirt and listening to Mosley would have told you were it was leading. Perhaps you have a responsibility consider the effect on others of your posts, you have your Gang of Five, your happy clappers, high fivers who like your every post but what of those who are not as intelligent, nuanced as you, who do not have the words to temper what they say in response, who feel you give them credence to voice a more extreme racism?
  2. You cynic, they cycled there of course! Some of the Execs used these eco model Bamboo bikes but when they got to China the bloody Pandas ate them!!!

    More 'Clicks', more advertising revenue, Blog visits, more column inches, TV appearances and Think Tanks to head? I wouldn't click on anything that would add to his income, give him credence for his extreme views. Maybe he is such a nice guy but knows which point of view will bring him the attention and income he seeks. He's a smart cookie, he wouldn't say anything illegal or that might bring wide opprobrium that might damage his ''career''. I've heard enough of his view these last 15 years, I don't need to click on anything to know his worth.

    I'm surprised that Douglas Murray is so anti Black! He has one of the blackest hearts in the Right of Centre! Any group of people can be subject to his self promoting aims. He probably doesn't like The Manx because we're not 'WASP'?
  5. Hey. It's an 'IT' not a she!!! Just because it's got a fat a............. ''RAAD NY SKEDDAN'' ( Non gender specific)?
  6. Well I won't be going on any Korean boat! They'll be stripping the data off our 'phones and laptops to sexploit us into buying Hyundais!!!

    Oh yes, the D of Ed are kow towing to , wage demands and Black demands for positive desciminiation to level things off? I seem to remenber Alex Allinson saying the these Black Bastards should just accept their place in life and just serve us whites. He did . didn't he???

    Pretty much what has made me anti racism for 60 years!!!
  10. Bull Fighting? What about Bullfighting!!!
  11. The incumbents from this by-election will have the advantage of being paid while campaigning for the Gen Election. They can mail their constituents with all their loverly bubberly things that they have done for the area and put it down to their MHK 'expenses'!!! They can get their Dept. to give them a wonderful PR. with pictures of course, into the papers just before the GElect. All the more reason for a moratorium on press coverage for 'X' weeks before an election???

    The Dof ED will go along with a fledgling organisation? I doubt it. Their curriculum has years of development behind it, I doubt they would cast that aside on a whim even for a good idea. I tend to think that any changes to the PC'd PSHE lessons should be in consultation with a University for advice and guidance. Many Police forces take a logical approach to managing demonstrations, if it's going to happen, better to manage it than try to stop it? I could understand your suspicions of any new organisations driving factors if you were worried that say....White Supremacists had infiltrated the Hardy Commission to sow racial doubts in the 'on the fence' white population, or Black Panther to stir up racial action but really is it likely that a fledgling MANX organisation has been infiltrated in such a way? Really? There are times to put aside suspicions, especially when fatuous, to embrace the ideas of those who are, at least. trying to bring about changes, peaceful of course. They just want more understanding of racialism on the Island and to address this in schools? Is that wrong? Maybe they read MF!!! Of course they are young, these are the people who do try to make a difference in many spheres. Youngsters today are much less likely to see colour, differences, body features etc than we? did when we were young. Ugly was often used as a descriptive when I was young, the only use of it I have heard recently was to describe a Black Woman' ! You probably know her, she isn't ugly. The man calling her it, we all know and love for his.................... This is what is wrong with 'covert racism'.

    Kneeling, wrong direction , when viewed from the south as usual but cute little bum cheeks!!! Only the style is their logo, the Legs are our symbol and it would be best if they were to correct it. Jane Poole-WIlson, we like her, don't we? Supports the aims of this movement. How could anyone tell the colour of the two spokespersons from the MR interview to be so anti straight away and associated with BLM???

    What a load of hypothetical tosh! Wiki....Murder of James Byrd Jr. Led to new anti racist legislation in the States. Murder, deliberate. Manslaughter, unintended consequence.
  17. The 'pasting' you got a month or so ago! When you tried to discuss your subject but were met with an onslaught about your not revealing info, which turned into a open and honest Govt trist. However, in response to the above, | cannot believe the the committee reached this conclusion without some input from the PO. Why would they??? and further.......... Can you say what discussions have the IoM PO had to be sure that this measure would work as is being promoted. I suppose, here you will again quote Commercial Confidentiality???...but that will not address the above complaints of the idea, the pretty much opposition to the proposal.?
  18. Where we can make a difference, we should try to do so.
  19. The Hoi Poloi tend to want 'Major Changes' to mean the slashing of staff numbers, pension rights, lower hourly rates and especially, the reduction of 'Managers', who ever they may be?
  20. Julie E. Brave of you to come back on here after the pasting you got last time!!! Have you formed a business model for this proposal? Have you been in touch with Online Retail associations? Will they promte our model to their members with the benefits? outlined, small market but sales not to be lost? Have UK PO agreed to take our 1kg packages to, where? Skelmerdale for us to pick up there? Most importantly, have you worked out how many retailers would stop sending to the Island under the proposal?
  21. Head above parapet mode........... Killing for Pleasure is wrong, just wrong! We Humans should be above that sort of arrogance that lets us believe that we have the right to kill, purely for our pleasure! To stock our moorlands or reservoirs with things to kill makes it even worse?
  22. ...but Uhtred, you'd do that to any MHK!!!
  23. I'm not an appologist for MGas but they are an independent company, required by their investors to turn a profit? We can accept them as an independent company, or, we can call for them to be nationalised as a Manx Govt owned entity. Would that mean lower prices? Have MGas set their prices to try to comply with Govt reqirements while providing with their sharehiolders needs? Creative accounting can distort any figures but to try to exclude any loophole would be an ongoing battle between the \govt and, any other private company? ,,, and we now where that ends up???
  24. If you believed that ...........................
