  1. Be very careful on the Isle of Man when the daughter of a policeman is involved....... http://www.isleofman.com/News/details/20325/-multiple-serious-failures-in-stabbing-investigation
  2. Just listened to the female caller (Lucy?) on the show...she absolutely runs rings round Stu Peters and totally shows up his lack of knowledge and ignorance on the subject ! Think he is gonna learn a tough lesson here about going all in on a subject without having done his research.
  3. The govt paying of salary is not indefinite....and actually...thinking about that, the vast majority of people I know are desperate to get out and get back to work, regardless of whether their salary is being supported by Govt. So I dont think its true at all to say the vast majority would choose not to return.
  4. Seeing a lot of people on news/social media etc saying that nobody should go back to work/school etc until the govt can guarantee its safe etc.....Cant help feeling this is just not realistic...By all means steps can be taken to try to improve safety. However at some stage I think the govt need to say look we cannot guarantee safety of anyone, this is going to be around for quite some time to come, we need to get things up and running again and if certain people feel uncomfortable going to a place of work, sending their kids to school, going to a restaurant or bar or shop etc (which is a perfectly valid position to take for some people) then they should choose not to.
  5. Dont mind Christy, Beth etc too much...only slight criticism is the amount of superlatives used for literally anything....every single story or discussion is usually preceded and or followed by 'Oooh that is soooooooooo lovely, its amazing, it really is fantastic'...even relatively mundane ordinary things...but aside from that...dont mind listening to them. The instant switch off however still remains Brindley. His consistent ability to annoy is a real talent. I don't make it through a sentence before the the channel is hastily changed.
  6. A lot of the same fucking knobheads who shop at Christmas like there is a month long shutdown no doubt...silly selfish twats who think of literally nothing but themselves.
  7. Yes....I don't think the elderly and infirm should be racing motorbikes.
  8. I quite like an occasional blast across the mountain on a good day with clear roads....I dont like people getting maimed/killed. A suggestion then which might appease both sides of the argument. Why dont they take apply a speed limit around all other parts of the island, coz people dont really need to be driving above 50 or 70mph on other roads where there are houses etc and people going about their daily business. Then just leave the wide open section over the mountain with the unrestricted speed limit. With a bit of policing to discourage the proper knobheads there is little reason why most people cant open up their cars/bikes up there.....and for those that do not like that kind of thing......there is the coast road which would then have a restriction all the way along so they dont have to use the mountain if they dont want to.
  9. Not so long ago MR were heralding their latest big launch.....Smart Local Focus. As far as I could tell it was Manx Radios rival to Google with the unique selling point that businesses who registered also got mentioned on the radio occasionally. They now seem to not mention it at all any more after hammering the jingles for a few months. Anyone (Stu?) know whose idea this was, how much was spent on it and what has happened to it now ? Seem to get 'Oops something went wrong' on most pages on it now...…!
  10. Heard some details of the 'exciting' changes coming in the next couple of weeks. Live on air from 5am (not interested), Stu Peters moved to graveyard shift, Andy Wint taking over lunch time slot....and Brindley continues to be in charge of programming/scheduling etc.........bye bye Manx Radio.
  11. Yeah tend to agree with that. It sounds a bit like the coppers have been a bit twattish by advising of the decision so late in the day...so they probably cant be arsed dealing with it. However saying its been ok for years so it should just go ahead is not right either. Clearly become more and more popular each year....but if something did go wrong...the parents whinging now would be the same parents whinging about their kids getting hurt etc. Recall that incident in Ireland a few months back where a load of kids turned up and all tried to get into the same venue at once causing a crush and a couple of kids were killed....
  12. Sounds like a challenge to all members of the public and all visitors....whoever gets interviewed over the TT period...or if you see any roving reporters anywhere you have to say 'I love Manx Radio TT' as loudly and as often as possible....together we can try to get it mentioned as much as possible..that will pi55 the Gov idiots off !
  13. I prefer a 'mince' pie to a gay cake...
  14. Do you mean like Mr Lakeman from the IOM, who lost two sons from taking 'ecstacy' tablets and now has campaigned as far as the house of commons for these drugs to be legalised so it's safer for young people (who will ALWAYS experiment) to take them. I tend to listen to the views of people with first hand experience of these issues such as Mr Lakeman rather than silly out of touch racist twats....
  15. The exit from the roundabout was not blocked...otherwise I would have a) mentioned it and b) agreed that in that circumstance to wait until the exit was clear would be sensible. This driver just decided to stop because they didn't know how to use a roundabout. Usual suspects on here trying to argue that someone who gives way to the left on a roundabout is somehow not in the wrong...hilarious. And as for saying its just down to basic manners...PMSL...Imagine the fun to be had at roundabouts if all the drivers are leaning out of the window saying 'after you old bean'...'no I must insist,..ladies first' etc etc. You silly twat Dilli...the rules for these kind of traffic manoeuvres are there for a reason, it has absolutely nothing to do with manners.
