  1. Which is presumably pretty much where the UK will end up too. I wonder if the IoM might manage to get there faster and with less silly posturing and squealing.
  2. I didn't read the headline that way. The first line of the article also made things very clear: "Three doctors have spoken out against proposals to legalise assisted dying." My views on the matter are, I think, closer to yours than theirs. However I thought it was a well-positioned article and I thought they expressed ther own views professionally and with sensitivity to those who may think otherwise. https://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/doctors-oppose-assisted-dying-legislation-586505
  3. Whilst agreeing with you about the selfish onanists, their behaviour is merely the catalyst that allowed those in IoMG to ban something else that they already wanted to ban. The reason for the ban is piss-poor government judgement. It's the same sort of authoritarian stupidity we saw when they banned motorcycling at Snuff-the-Wind. Let's see which 'other people's pleasures' they seek to ban next.
  4. Who was there before that then? Or are you speaking on behalf of the woolly mammoth, auroch and rhinocerii communities?
  5. Indeed. Peters supports a world where a schoolboy might fall over, without repercusions at the highest level. Quick! Drain Injebreck, Sulby and the Cringle before this madness continues. And consign all schoolchildren to their bedrooms for a year, for fear of harm.
  6. 👍 which is the important message. However only a weapons grade idiot would conclude that the appropriate response is the elimination of all water below 15 C. https://rnli.org/youth-education/education-resources/upper-primary/cold-water-impact
  7. Thank you. I remember Murphy having his knickers in a twist over that one. I'd forgotten that it was SP's teasing that wound him up into a self-righteous frenzy. Top work! No recent updates mind. Since SP issued his fatwa, has Murphy-the-tax-avoidance-promoter had to remain in a secret location? Does he need police security every time he 'goes on stage' (in his bedroom). Does he require 24/7 counsellors on hand in case children point and laugh at him? Should we worry about Murphy's wellbeing?
  8. 'Screwball' is putting it mildly. This is the nutter who was disowned by Corbyn & McDonnell as, to quote (McDonnell): "He is not the economic adviser and never has been, because we doubted his judgment" As to his knowledge of tax issues, the best I can find is his advice to Guardian readers on how to avoid tax on their employment of domestic servants: https://www.theguardian.com/money/2001/jan/14/childcare.observercashsection What's the Stu Peters' connection?
  9. I'm not aware of anywhere else that has banned fresh water because it might freeze, but I'm happy to be corrected. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-isle-of-man-63999732 In the interests of transparency, might we have more details of who authorised this?
  10. I assumed he was referencing the legendary Manx artist Eddie Lowrey; a member of the Socialist Realist school, best known for his cardboard box depictions of Ballasalla's smokey tops.
  11. Not this nonsense again. Would you believe HMRC? https://www.gov.uk/hmrc-internal-manuals/vat-transport/vtrans110640 And / or would you believe the European Court of Justice's ruling on how the relevant law must be applied? https://www.vatupdate.com/2021/09/29/flashback-on-ecj-cases-c-33-11-a-oy-vat-exemption-for-the-delivery-of-aircraft-for-international-charter-flights-for-companies-and-private-individuals/
  12. Another vote for the (titanium) Spork. Jolly useful to have in the vehicle / bag. I prefer the 'true Spork' design to the 'double ender' though. A particularly good tool for tacklingSingapore Noodles.
  13. The Adelphi is operated by Britannia Hotels, ranked by Which as the UK's worst hotel chain for nine years in succession. https://www.liverpoolecho.co.uk/news/liverpool-news/owners-adelphi-named-worst-hotel-22939590
  14. It isn't a Tory policy. It's a misrepresentation of some fairly stupid comments made by Grant Shapps (a weapons grade knob-end). I agree with your second sentence. These threads are at least helpful in identifying those who lack sufficient sense and judgement for it to be wise for them to take charge of a motor vehicle. That would probably include Shapps. In the event they later cause harm to vulnerable road users, it may prove useful to have their poor judgement / attitude documented here in a public forum.
  15. As a high-ranking member of the Apostrophe Police, I feel I must issue you with a caution for that one. 🙂
