    Steam Packet to be sold

    You could sail to scotland, the shortest point from the IOM, it is only a short hop, maybe 20 miles, then by car at 70mph on the motorway, if you did it that way, what would the difference in time from IOM to Heysham be ?

    He is the voice of the tt and will rightly be revered in 20 years time, a bit like Jeff Cannell and Peter Kneale.

    Police Cars

    I came down Ricmond Hill today, and a copper at the home for horses was doing speed checks, not entirley un-expected, but what i didn`t expect to see was that he was in a brand new un-marked "top of the range" grey touring BMW. When tynwald granted the Chief Constable an extra £3.5m in his budget, i thought it was to be spent for general policing, and not to be spent on grandio`s police cars.

    The new one now needs replacing, as it is now 10 years old, queue "Mrs renolds press release" ( the radar needs replacing IRO £ 9,000.000m or we will be blacklisted ).

    What about pods, as opposed to props, are they not cheaper to run, and more efficient ?

    No sure about that, i seen him waving his hands a lot, but none of the cars in front of me seem to notice him, and i didn`t either, ( although i did see a few cars in front of me doing a "temperature check" sticking thier fingure up outside just to see how cold it was ) .
