  1. My outburst is an extract from my drag act script for the Guild..
  2. Why don’t you fuck off. Your self-righteous troll like waffle is boring. Back to the thread..
  3. Picture this: 13 year old Drag Queen from QE2 School who entered the class under the name of Ophelia Cox..steps out delivers her opening line at the judges in true cutting drag queen style “Will you lot cheer up. You all look like you’ve just shat your pants”.. At which point there are audible sharp intakes of breath from the audience whilst 3 members of the Port St Mary Mothers Union Wednesday Club pass out with shock. Meanwhile, someone has WhatsApp’d a photo to the Daily Mail news desk and within an hour Social Services have been called. That said, there’s no such thing as bad PR..
  4. Yea, like we have dozens of drag acts on the island, let alone 13 year old ones. I've only ever had the misfortune to witness two of them in action, and to be fair - compared to some of the UK professional ones, they were both (to use drag parlance) fucking shite.

  6. I’m conflicted. Part of me wants to acknowledge the work being done by some health care professionals, but witj the whole thing being one shambolic dysfunctional mess in general, is it an appropriate use of resources to have these awards? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/manx-care-looking-for-its-peoples-champion/
  7. Breaking news - https://gef.im/2023/01/13/tt-merch-store-to-close/?fbclid=IwAR1e4YldPKBGW-BSFWNFHMqWx8WmqwIhV6ngOTiD6RcDBI9wBA86ptNHhDE To be honest, I'm not surprised. Apart from 3-4 weeks a year, the shop is pretty much empty most days..
  8. Thanks for the correction.
  9. Both projects are ill-considered, the impact of which on the general public in particular has been given zero thought. The above being an Isle of Man Government KPI.
  10. Your synopsis is possibly true. I’ve heard that an alien craft landed here in late 2018 and abducted 3 high profile CEOs from Chinese Banks and their driver whilst being driven in a taxi from Ronaldsway. Unfortunately for the Isle of Man, they never re-appeared and the Aliens spat Martin Moore out just outside the Sea Terminal.
  11. The Arts Council generally do a fine job these days. I’ll accept that in years gone by it was a bit of a loose cannon at times, but on this occasion I genuinely think this is a non-story. As previous posters have said, the truth is that this cost the Arts Council £13k. There was no loss. I appreciate some people’s view that it could or should have been held in the Villa, but then I don’t think it would have worked as well. The whole point of the Arts Council is to promote and support the arts and make them accessible as possible to as many people as possible over each year. They are NOT a profit centre for Government or a commercial enterprise. The Arts Council would have known in advance that they wouldn’t break even, but the whole point is they don’t need to all the time. Put it this way, without the Arts Council this evening wouldn’t have happened at all, and then we’d all be moaning that there was nothing on. Finally, maybe the answer would be for the Arts Council to give a Bursary to train some decent journalists on this island. News is not all about creating click bait headlines.
  12. It’s scientifically aligned to the average level of common sense found in a senior civil servant in DOI.
  13. Are DOI selling beer now? Just asking as I was led to believe they couldn’t organise a piss up in a brewery..kerching! I’m here all week. I thank yow, I thank yow!
