  1. For completeness, it would be refreshing for the Island's Mickey Mouse media to actually follow up and complete a story....I guess I'd be hanging on for a long time..
  2. The probation service. From what I have witnessed of it in action, it is hardly a punishment.
  3. Thank you! If nothing else, it smacks of a Minster being more interested in his own ego than what the public will think. He's not the first and won't be the last!
  4. OK, batted away then. It doesn't reflect well, does it? Did Mr Malarkey or the Lt Governor personally pay for the staff on premises that day? Did they personally pay for the Gardners who prepared the grounds for the day for any photos? I suspect not. But I think it is more deep rooted than that. The Lt Governor is here as a guest of the Island, living in a house provided by the taxpayer. By its very definition, the taxpayer did in effect contribute therefore to a Government Minsters wedding. The fact that Minister Malarkey should even think it acceptable to accept such an invitation knowing that it would not reflect well with the masses was ill considered, at best or just plain arrogant at worst.
  5. Oh dear - more Old Boys Club behaviour uncovered, then swept swiftly under the carpet. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=52929&headline=MHK's nuptials came at no cost to the public&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2020

    Manx Tunnel

    Put Ian Longworth in charge. Obvious choice.
  7. But seriously - What The Actual Fuck?? - http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=52928&headline=Bus and rail boss back in charge&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2020
  8. Whilst a laudable scheme in its general concern for he environment, I can't help but be amused by the Corpy's inability to doing anything without tying themselves in knots. In this case they are offering to give away trees - but your garden size will determine how many you get. Unfortunately, there is no indication of their definition of a "large garden" or a "small garden", and the poor old squeezed middle with a 'medium garden' don't even get a look in. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/douglas-council-supports-climate-change-reversal/
  9. And I agree with you on that point, although it could be argued that it was not a surprise to you that your car tax was going to expire - like when your insurance expires, or when it needs a service. But, the trouble is that I also see it from DOI's perspective. The irony is that Mr Moore and his looney fringe are precisely the type that will pay one instalment to get their disc, then cancel their Direct Debit and wait to be pursued through the courts - guess what? Yes, at TAXPAYER'S expense. You and me buddy.
  10. And the idiot behind the campaign, Mr Martin Moore is back in court again - guess what for? Oh dearie me. What a wanker. https://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/taxi-driver-had-six-untaxed-vehicles-on-road/
  11. Seems like a silly schoolboy error - or is it just plain arrogance by the local plod? It does lead to one question though - who ends up paying for the costs of this mistake? Police time, court time, advocates time, cost of meals in cells, cost of diesel carting him into the custody suite, potential compensation?.......and is anyone held fully accountable? https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/high-bailiff-expresses-concern-over-unnecessary-charges/

    Stop the pigeon

    I'm just relieved to learn it wasn't Speckled Jim.
  13. You are Dickhead Longworth. I claim my £5.
