  1. Errr ....... unfortunate turn of phrase .........perhaps , on second thoughts I'm saying nothing
  2. So you'll be giving it a swerve then ?
  3. Fair point, frankly "not overfond" of the man , but he is only saying what he is told to say , have the temerity to stray from the 'party line' at your peril . Just saying
  4. I heard that the other applicant for the newsreader job could speak perfectly clear english , unfortunately he didn't fit the job spec as he was too tall .
  5. Perhaps Gladys, could the same be said of this site ? To date I have not been banned on that site yet😉. That said I do miss the contributions of many ( I hesitate to name them ) who no longer post on this site and only look in from time to time out of idle curiosity .just saying "Flowers"
  6. Harry there was more than one , 3 if memory serves(?) . The one that flew to Dusseldorf was 'GAPNB ', I was a 'baggage loader' ( £8 .12 shillings pw) and, as I was one of the few that could read and write ,was responsible for putting the appropriate catering on the right aircraft. the Dusseldorf flight was the only one with a 'bar- box' (which had to be taken off before the ground crew got their hands on it ! 😉🤣!)

    Pity, my ex mother in law lost a couple of stone with one of those vibrating belts........... Ripped her leg off ...... I'll get my coat
  8. Sid ,60 years ago "British United Airways" operated out of Blackpool Airport flying Dakota aircraft (with one flight a week going to Dusseldorf ) and was perhaps slightly better than the time you refer to (when the aircraft resembled a 2 CV with wings😉). BUA had a few more staff back then
  9. 'clearly' you are either drunk , deluded or stupid , I drive a 21 year old Skoda , have a word with yourself

    TT 2022 ??

    Spot on , in addition to promoting events that fail they contrive to prevent events proposed/organised by independent individuals , presumably because they hate to be embarrassed when , for example, a bunch of OAP motorcyclists successfully organise "Jurby Day" . However , credit where it's ,due Rob Callister ( he who presided over the destruction of the iconic scoreboard ) proposed that the same group should organise a 'motor cycle event' in the winter .
  11. Wouldn't you be better off trying to be less offensive ? "wealth" is relative ,that said I'm quite happy to be driving my well maintained Skoda . I also choose to ride a vintage motorcycle thanks . You may choose to drive a swanky EV , don't have a problem with that but do not presume to instruct others to make the same choices , hope this helps. Your last paragraph demonstrates that you 'understand' very little ( you provide no evidence for your assertions )

    Spot on, the Gov CS self appointed experts stopped the VMCC Jurby event by stipulating expensive and IMO entirely unnecessary "requirements" while at the same time choosing to ignore and abdicate responsibility for obvious rider safety issues on the TT/MGP course . Funny old world.
  13. Who has he delegated the onerous job of "meeting and greeting " the Corporate clients / bucket listers in the VIP tent ?

    The houses you see are "in" Onchan and pay Onchan Rates , but don't let the facts put you off posting inaccurate information . Hope this helps

    Parts of Onchan seem acceptable

    Not strictly true in that a few marshals , after witnessing the 2 fatals and a few big "offs" at Casey's /Black Hut decided that marshalling wasn't for them. One a marshal with over 30 years experience and who had witnessed fatals previously said 'he thought as he had got older he was perhaps more sentimental and that was why it had hit him harder. Fair comment H d ,I'm now "done" as the powers that be have refused to even discuss safety improvements @ Casey's and Black Hut ( 9 offs including multiple riders and 2 fatals) . Sadly the marshals witnessing "offs" at the marshalling points do not take part in any investigation , their views are regarded as irrelevant and if persistent are labelled a "troublemaker". Just saying

    Excellent Roxanne , one more of "us" and one less of "them"😉, mind you I left it a bit late ( I had my bus pass)when I agreed to passenger for a few laps @ Jurby . I was told to hold on and nod my head up and down but in reality was about as much use as 56 lbs of 'Edwards'.🤣

    Bit like the 5 'offs' @ "Casey's, including two 'fatals' , the CoC etc have still decided not to install air fencing, despite the recommendations of marshals . The ACU's statement of "improvements" ( referred to by DF ) ? Fine words but absolute bollocks when it comes to rider safety and leasing with marshals IMO .
  20. I could pop round with a jar of "vick" 2bees ,hope you feel better soon .

    I am/was a member of the IOM TTMA ( along with either 283 or 680 members , nobody seems sure 😉) and was notified of an EGM to wind up the company and transfer its assets to a new company ( TTMA ltd ). The EGA was adjourned as no information was given in relation to the assets/ liabilities of IOM TTMA. A new date was set for a reconvened EGM which again was adjourned. I have received no notification of when the adjourned EGM will be held. I understand the the TTMA Ltd have now taken over the assets of the old company and are in charge with 2 Members . Just saying

    Max, as far as I'm aware the marshals @ Black Hut/Casey's have not been invited to attend an investigation by the powers that be into any incident .

    TT 2022 ??

    I would venture to suggest that the marshals on the ground should be a party to the investigation .

    TT 2022 ??

    I have marshalled (2008-2019) and have never been offered post incident support . My only concern is to prevent/ mitigate a further reoccurrence of incidents @ Casey's and Black Hut. Hope this helps.

    TT 2022 ??

    The CoC/ motorsport team /TTMA ltd demonstrably do not wish to see statistics on serious crashes given that after 5 "offs" @ 'Casey's" including 2 fatals ( 2014 & 2018) they still refuse to even discuss the installation of air fencing . Similarly after 4 "offs" @ "Black Hut" ( 1 with 2 riders down and 1 with 3 riders ) where riders suffered severe lower leg injuries when coming into contact with the dwarf wall the CoC etc etc rejected the request to fix boarding to said wall. Just saying😡
