  1. Forgive me but this 'commercial decision' involves no financial cost to IOM gov , the cost could well be the lives of residents and the loss of revenue to businesses . I'm informed that if one is unsuccessful in a job interview these days it is acceptable to ask and be told why . I am curious to know why you allege "rachomics" has been petulant as it's not a view I share
  2. John Wright, it would appear that on the contrary you have already made your mind up . You may well have 40 years litigation experience including , I understand, being criticised by your own IOM professional body for improper conduct. I have had 30 years experience ,as a PHI/EHO in dealing with infectious diseases and I find your comments unhelpful and frankly 'nasty'. I'm aware that to "question a mod" results in a ban , confirmed in an email citing "spamming" as the reason, so perhaps it is now the time (as there may not be another 😂)to say I find your moderation of this site at times 'unfortunate' . Just saying.
  3. The Commissioners were in breach of H&S legislation by failing to maintain the structure of the building . You are a liar and should be ashamed , hope this helps .
  4. I'm pleased the Cosy Nook has been saved , pity that the Commissioners contrived to encourage it to becoming derelict . Many people were saying that the old Murray's Museum should have been demolished , I would recommend a visit to see what can be achieved . Just saying.

    Good News

    True 'doc', a school report said "Will never amount to much" .Perhaps he was right 🤣, certainly concentrated my mind ,immediately left school, got a job as a baggage loader at Blackpool Airport ( it's been downhill ever since 🤣 ), few jobs , bit of luck retired at 50 , no complaints 😁 Someone once said that the best revenge is to "do well" and for those who dismissed you as useless to be told by a third party , perhaps they had a point. Jus saying
  6. You're not the only taking that view Doc , Shimmin , to my knowledge ,dealt with a planning application in what one could argue was an unconventional way. I found Skelly's involvement in the TT a little perplexing . Just saying
  7. Reminds me of a letter in the "Wipers Times" (Ypres during WW1) published as a leaflet for the troops , in the letters column the question was posed " Is it ever permissible to shoot a commanding officer?" the response ......... "Only in extenuating circumstances" .
  8. was he an associate of a lawyer who ' broke the rules' ? Just asking 😉
  9. Perhaps "Banker" has just spent the greater part of his life being confused😉. He seems to recommend that we should follow our "leader " (Howie). The only reason for some of us to follow him would perhaps be idle curiosity? ETA
  10. I have worked in public health since 1963 , not having a panic , just being prudent . I value the opinions of Dr Glover . Just saying
  11. At best an interesting hypothesis but I think I'll give your advice a bit of a swerve , keep posting , there's not a dry seat in the house.
  12. Spot on . I suspect you are right about the "good people in Government" who are unable to 'speak out' as part of their contract of employment . I remember investigating outbreaks of TB/Typhoid/Polio back in the 60's in Lancashire and being instructed not to speak to anyone . If , as I suspect, a similar culture exists within IOM Gov and we have to rely on Politicians /Senior CS's with, at best, a rudimentary grasp of the management of infectious diseases to advise and inform then I'll make my own arrangements to try and stay safe. Just saying
  13. Fair point Roxie . TBH I'm not reassured by our political masters/ Senior CS 'pencil squeezers , particularly when "they" binned off Dr Glover because she may have got some kudos which presumably they alone wished to claim. Realistically if I get infected , because of my age I am likely to get TLC rather than ICU ( fair enough) so I will make my own arrangements in attempting to keep myself safe. just saying
  14. A familiar cry from the land owning community perhaps ?
  15. Perhaps but if they were to offer say a 10/15 year lease at an initial low rent provided they will bring the property back into an acceptable standard someone could take it on. The old Murray's Museum at the Bungalow was vacant for years , take a look now at what a Manx couple with a vision and hard work have achieved . Just saying
