  1. Oh, another "I'm alright jack, sod the rest of you"... There are many people out there, who for a variety of genuine reasons do need a physical counter.
  2. Well, this is outrageous. If this plan goes ahead all it will serve to do it push the affairs, sneaky snogs and a fumble in the car park further into becoming a thing of the past. And for what??? Yes!! All for a small handful of pasty lycra-clad mountain bikers or the odd dog walker (not dogger). Outrageous! Surely, to have had a shag in a car at least once in your life is a rite of passage? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/proposals-to-close-marine-drive-to-motor-vehicles/
  3. I wish this gobshite would do one..https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/mhk-astonished-at-lack-of-vaccine-for-spc-crew/ Has he actually ever achieved anything whilst in his seat?
  4. It may be a bitter pill to swallow (pardon the pun) but sooner or later Alfie and the rest of the striped suits will have to wake up to the realisation that sooner or later the Island will either have to acquire some national debt in order to repair and fund the public services we have. If we can't do that, there is little point in trying to attract new income tax paying residents because the infrastructure will just continue to creak and eventually fall down altogether - the economy will collapse and the Steam Packet will be seeing full boats of people with single tickets to Heysham.
  5. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/calls-for-1-pay-cap-on-public-sector-wages-to-be-lifted/ Yet there is always money available for a whole pile of other stuff like fleets of minibuses, an overly complicated and wildly over budget prom scheme..I could go on. Shame on you Isle of Man Government.
  6. In all seriousness, a) is this really newsworthy and b) is paying a landowner a chunk of cash to fund a few members of the constabulary to run around sheds and barns shooting paper targets on cut out models really proportionate to our low crime rate - let alone almost zero need for a firearms unit? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/tactical-firearms-unit-looks-for-training-locations/
  7. It does endorse my opinion that being an MHK should be a full time job - not there to top up your business income..what's in their oath "without fear or favour". I know we have to accept some will continue to run businesses, but its a bit of a schoolgirl to not keep business completely separate from their political career.
  8. For ejecting this utter prick out of Tesco. Very well done. I want to (when allowed) to come and shake your hand! http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=60137&headline=Covid protester told to leave Tesco&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2021
  9. But if you actually listen to the audio clip, David Ashford is NOT saying what this sensationalist headline is!
  10. And..early out off the starting blocks is Wonder Woman Julie Edge in her question in Tynwald today: Q 18. The Hon. Member for Onchan (Ms Edge) to ask the Member of the Department for Enterprise responsible for Tourism: Why the Laxey Wheel is not operating? Can I please just say here (please forgive me mother) - What fucking planet is this air head living on??? Seriously, what the actual Fuck! 1). Nobody, but nobody actually cares right now because (Hello!!) it's the middle of Winter; 2.) In case the daft blonde twonk hasn't noticed (clues in the fact the
  11. Holy Mother of God...do we really want to read this tripe? I gave up after the second line - http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=59531&headline=Speaker's Christmas poem&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2020
  12. I suspect if it wasn't for the fact the Isle of Man Government using them as their principal bankers and the potential out cry from some residents, it would be NatWest branded by now. To be honest, the rate at which they are stripping back branches and services, it won't be long. Like most other banks, they are clearly on a digital drive - sod the customer and protect the profits.
  13. Can anyone explain what the feck this has got to do with Chubby Ray? Surely, its up to the Boy David to speak on this subject, or the Fat Controller? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/government-wont-be-complacent-on-coronavirus/
  14. So basically, reading between the lines Longworth looked into this wacky idea, was no doubt told by the Vehicle Test Centre that the buses wouldn't be legal on the road under current legislation for safety reasons, chose to ignore them (we know he never lets anyone get in his way including Nick Black), bought 3 for the pure hell of it, found they didn't even fit properly, so skipped them. In terms of why he is still in post - if you remember, he retired. He then came back as a consultant to new horse tram stables "the donkey palace", and before you know it had decided he wanted his old jo
