  1. I think you caricature the people who buy this sort of stuff. You'd probably be surprised.
  2. It's people's lifestyle habits that have f**ked up the countryside. I used to walk the dog in the plantations back in the '70s. You'd never see a soul and the peace and quiet was wonderful. I wouldn't dream of going there now. I've nothing against cyclists, and used to ride myself, but they shouldn't be riding where they like whenever they like. It doesn't work. People's freedoms have to be balanced out and restricted. The countryside is being used as an outdoor gymnasium 365 days of the year. Same goes for offroad motorcycles too. No need to ban anybody, just to rethink it and limit access to
  3. I suspect that the non-disclosure agreement will be the most likely outcome. It's been used plenty of times before. It's a big number and an offer that most cannot refuse. My hunch is that it's probably already been agreed.
  4. Weren't there problems with some of the new houses on the Pondy recently ? Rhumsaa will know.
  5. Batman and Robin you mean ?
  6. In the same week that the Duke of Edinburgh died. Unbelievable. Every child in the IOM should spend a week or more at this wonderful educational facility in one of the most beautiful locations we have. What an experience for them. A place to learn about themselves and others; to learn life skills; develop socially and emotionally; self-reliance, maturity, resilience and coping; fresh air, exercise, and just having fun. More value in a week than in a whole term of school. I give up with this Island.
  7. Aren't we also forgetting the First Lord of the Long Grass ?
  8. Yes, Major Rushen's spelling is more Catterick than Sandhurst.
  9. That doesn't even begin to cover it. Step out of your bubble and think about history, nationhood, and politics on the big scale. Prince Philip was a main player of his times and did it with dignity, style, modesty, courage etc; and still retained his individuality. His life was a good example to all who choose to understand it.
  10. Correct. It hasn't led to any devolution of powers or changed our relationship to the U.K. The role carries no leadership or democratic function and does nothing for the Island or its people. It's achieved nothing but further expense for the taxpayer.
  11. A wonderful life and a great servant to his adopted nation. There's a fascinating documentary on YouTube about his mother and Philip's turbulent childhood that I watched recently. Highly recommended.
  12. What really frustrates me about Rodan is that he could've made a real difference and done a lot of good for Manx politics. He got too caught up in the whole constitutional history and romance of an independent Tynwald. Maybe it was a surrogate for his own ambitions for Scottish independence - I don't know. I'll give Watterson his due: he's made the odd mistake but at least he gets stuck into the issues and doesn't just fanny around in fancy dress.
  13. Manx Radio are no better. They played the previous day's news bulletin again at 11:00pm last night. Talk about Groundhog Day. That's about the fourth or fifth time in as many weeks. It's like the good old days of Bernie up there again for us nostalgics...
  14. The great response you missed there would've been that your dad flew gliders too - into Pegasus Bridge and Arnhem
