  1. Alternatively, the DfE can see this is a good thing to have rather than a dilapidated building with no prospects blighting the quay for years to come. hope they are successful
  2. Yes Bees. Feel ya, 100%. This is not logical in any sense. Feels personal and spiteful. It is hardly an attractive building as it stands and getting an old building with significant inherent defects up to 2022 building regs is not gonna work. The age of the building should not determine whether it is of significance. What Douglas and the island needs is updating.
  3. Get it knocked down ASAP ffs and something useful built there.
  4. How to treat Christmas trees in Spoons.... https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/drunk-idiot-destroys-christmas-tree-21017682
  5. An unemployment rate of 0.7% is dangerously low. Businesses are struggling to find staff. The people who aren't working clearly aren't able or refuse to work.

    did this pub ever happen?
  7. It might help if you give us a little more info about your interests and age. These guys sometimes hold singles events - https://www.facebook.com/groups/296583279193/
  8. Terry Cringle is a lovely chap and his work is always interesting. He has put the time in doing a job that he loves and deserves respect.
  9. Not everyone on a bicycle is a cyclist you nugget :-)
  10. Erm, she is just five on a tiny little bike with spokey dokeys - not really a 'cyclist'. Also, i never said cycling should be banned, but there are a lot of adults who should know better and there is no need for them to be on the walkway going full chat. Comprende?
  11. We always went to raves rather than organised parties. Actually went to one about a month ago. Still fun.
  12. The cyclists are a fucking menace on the prom walkway. There is no need for them to be on there. My wee offspring is learning to cycle and has no concept of having to go in a straight line on her bike. There is a good chance of broken bones the speed they go.
  13. The house? https://www.cowleygroves.com/property/the-willows-douglas-road-ballasalla-im9-2an/ You are somewhat dumbing down the size and specification of house in question. This is a 6 bed 6 bath house of nearly 4,000 sq ft - approximately 4 times the size of a standard 3 bed semi. On a £ per sq ft basis of £215 per sq ft, this is bloody good value.

    Lol. World - listen up! A 3 year old car is cheaper and just as reliable as a new car!!

    Car Leasing

    I'd extend that to say that anyone who buys a new car using any means is crackers.
  17. That's fabulous. Isn't it missing a third sosig and birds nest though?!
  18. I ate three slices of toast this morning and had 3 cups of coffee. Think i might be a druid.
  19. What happened to these guys? https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/american-firm-wins-tt-broadcast-contract/
  20. That post is particularly belligerent, even by Manx standards.

    Car Leasing

    I imagine that the amount you pay to lease is more than depreciation. It has to be otherwise the business model wouldn’t work. I’d rather buy things outright without credit than have to incur an additional 30% premium due to cost of finance.
