  1. I don't doubt what you're saying Max but does anything really come from it ? The T.T. must always go on. This year it was five deaths but it could've been six, seven, eight, nine.... it wouldn't stop it all happening again next year. I don't think everyone truly understands that.
  2. Has the Coroner's report of the sidecar incident been pulled from the Courts website as well ?
  3. There'll be one of those Downfall videos on YouTube tomorrow set in the Mercedes Factory bunker when the news comes in that Longworth is retiring.
  4. Could anyone please put a rough figure on just how much this one individual has cost the taxpayer ? Capital expenditure and future liabilities on new fleets of buses, rolling stock, ticketing systems, restructuring; plus salary, pension etc; for the time he's held the post. I'll have a handkerchief ready...
  5. Democracy seems just as much in retreat, as the burgeoning world order that you describe. What you're seeing is really a net increase in wealth and living standards but most countries are far from democracies. Perhaps it's an idea that's had its day ? It certainly has its contradictions, and the newest super-power China seems to have no interest in it.
  6. It seems to me that the IOM has the best of both worlds: semi-independence under a constitutional monarchy. That's about as good as it gets unless A Fool could suggest another model of government, giving real world examples and not just some abstract socialist paradise. What the Island really needs to do is to put its own house in order. It's a joke, as the recent scandal with the Ranson tribunal proved once again. Putting an end to the Boys Club and the power of an unelected Public Sector would be the best thing we could do. Just don't expect it to happen.
  7. That ass looks nimble to me...
  8. It's pretty much four miles of stone walls start to finish.
  9. Close the forum just in case...
  10. I don't think it's deference at all. It's mostly symbolism and an embodiment of the nation, history, tradition, identity etc. If it was deference we'd have kicked them out generations ago. The British monarchy is more popular than it has been for a long time.
  11. They do have a wonderful history at the IOM T.T. that shouldn't be forgotten and have provided some fantastic racing over the years.
  12. Crass timing coming only a week after the Platinum Jubilee. Manx Radio haven't a clue. We seem to have an over-abundance of muppets at the moment and I'm not sure why this is.
  13. You're the biggest fool on here if you believe all that...
  14. It would be great to see some of these boys retire now and live to enjoy their achievements. I'd get more out of seeing the likes of McGuinness pack it in than watching him throw his leg over the bike again. He's already passed into T.T. history and legend. Let's all just enjoy that and have those wonderful memories. Just stay off the bike.
  15. 'You either get it or you don't get it...'
  16. There are plenty who'd love to make us the story...
  17. I wonder does the footage still exist of the course car the day it ran into Steve Mercer ? I wonder if it has been lost or has it vanished ?
  18. I detect a hint of sarcasm in that patrician tone that we've come to know so well. Have you got the big suit on again ?
  19. Plausible deniability covers it almost everytime. Who on the IOM is going to challenge it or take the case ? Until you rock up with a Q.C. and the BMA union...
  20. Manx Radio have been calling it Ah-go's leap for the last few days. I think they may have changed it this morning. I bet the fans chuckled at that.
  21. Is that where you got the idea for the big suit ?
  22. Memo to self: Must remember 'open and transparent' government...
