  1. Posts by Barrie deleted in this thread. He’s either having a break down, over imbibed, has Alzheimer’s or is a racist anti Semite. Jokes about gas bills for the Holocaust, or that another persons home will be next to be torched are not acceptable. Ever. moderators
  2. The whole point of nukes is that you do not have to big. David and Goliath innit...
  3. Yonks ago I worked with a Jap by the name of Ken Yamamoto. He survived the nuke attack on Japan. Our joke was he glowed in the dark. His reply was that as a survivor he got the best NHS in the world 24/7...Moral. Go NHS go Nuke..
  4. 40 years ago and you believe it. He probably had a thing about salt pork and biscuits as well...
  5. Who says our nukes don't work I was at school with lads who went on to do the biz on Polaris...Mind you I was a Prefect..You put who in charge! Long time ago...
  6. Works down on my manor it is the doubt. I possess weapons. My neighbours know. Will he/won't he? Got a visit from the Bill once. Still a doubt...Keeps the idiots at bay...
  7. No but other countries did and Australia for one banned HM ships from their waters...
  8. https://www.thejc.com/community/community-news/fire-badly-damages-canvey-island-yeshiva-1.494647 Apparently candles
  9. By the way have you seen the massive fire at the Jewish centre on Canvey island in Essex. ???
  10. Totally wrong. What you possess is the doubt. Will they/won't they...I recall we took nukes to the Falklands and I recall Israel breaking out the nukes...Will they/won't they...That is the value of the investment..
  11. The rules are the same for you as for Scotland thus far. You would have to be independent first and then apply to the EU after many years of preparing. You would have to align with the Euro which could take years. You would have to show that you can assume the full body of EU laws etc. ie "Acquis" Click the link. You do not have the power to drop the Crown Dependency status. You would have to pay into the EU funding. The problem you do face is more immediate. When the UK leaves the EU your existing Protocol 3 relationship to the EU will fall. What have you got to replace it? All you will have so far is a relationship with the UK as a Crown Dependency. You are British sovereign territory and the decisions are made for you in London. London will decide what you can have as was indeed the case when Protocol 3 was introduced to assist the UK as to what to do with the Crown Dependencies back in the old Common Market days. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Acquis_communautaire
  12. https://researchbriefings.parliament.uk/ResearchBriefing/Summary/SN05226 Read all about it.....The IOM was for some years under a minister of state in the Lords.
  13. It was there 1972. What to o about the Offshores.?
  14. Depends on what sort of future relationship we have with the EU...Long way to go yet. Might find there is not a lot of difference...between being In or as I suspect the UK covered by a meatier version of Protocol 3...And we still do not know if you lot are to be sacrificed or have the present constitutional status altered in some way....
  15. https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=indian+hemp&view=detail&mid=A09C184F228F81CBAF5FA09C184F228F81CBAF5F&FORM=VIRE Puts hairs on yer….Well makes hair grow they say...
  16. Not just the pharmacist but grocers. Mind you down on my manor the Yemeni controlled corner shop supplies it Ahem! When I were nobbut lad old salts would smoke it as did arty crafty folk. I think it was known as Indian hemp...No one got nicked.
  17. Tynwald is a court. In Westminster you can I think still be summoned to the bar of the house and I don't mean Annie's bar. About 20 or so years ago or more I was advised by an MHK who asked the then Attorney General that indeed Tynwald is a court and that MHKs are advocates. I was also told that MHKs being advocates had the right of audience in the Island's courts and could indeed represent you...But they were strongly advised not to do so. God help anyone with a lay MHK as an advocate. I assume that the Human Rights Act which makes lawering for lawyers has removed this. I seem to recall the human rights act not applying to Tynwald save in a judicial function??? I raise this a question because I seem to recall doing something on Manx radio way back...Anyone know? My dusty A Level in Brit Con tells me that legislatures jealously guard the right to summon you to appear before them as before a court. Was former CM Tony Brown summoned to appear before a Commons committee or did he volunteer? I imagine that the Island being Crown dependency the Commons would have the power to summon anyone from the IOM despite what Tynwald may so....
