  1. Not at the moment they don't, do they??
  2. I wonder if they would somehow find a way to fix potholes quicker if someone went round spraying a penis shape over each one with brightly coloured paint like I once saw in Ireland?
  3. Indeed. I suspect the truth is somewhere in the middle. Any parent saying their child has been well behaved, not gone out drinking and stuck to all the rules at all times either has a very boring child, or doesn't know their child well enough. We've all been 18.
  4. As I started this thread, I'll just clarify my thoughts. If people think I am being a troll or a smug twat - well, you are entitled to your opinion as I am entitled to mine. The fact is that we are coming to the end of a year of turmoil (and about to enter another one). A pretty shit year where all of our lives have been affected. Some more than others. Some have lost love ones (either here or elsewhere). Some have lost their businesses, some people have worked so hard that they are literally struggling to cope anymore. When the Students went off to University in September things wer
  5. And they are. We are in the midst of a global pandemic. The world is upside down. There is constant and frequent change. The students aren't the only ones having to adapt and cope with hardships - so I wish they would just grow a pair and accept that sometimes life is hard, and not fair.
  6. My point John, is that they should just be grateful that they are being allowed home for Christmas at all.
  7. Oh aye. But can you imagine them having to survive 2 weeks on their own in self catering accommodation?
  8. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/whole-household-isolation-students-needed-more-notice-says-msu/ This generation really can be priceless sometimes. They go over the UK, go bonkers on Freshers Week and pay little more than lip service to the UK COVID regime, and now are whinging about having to self isolate when they come home. They should be bloody grateful they can come home for Christmas at all!! There are thousands of people here who haven't seen loved ones - children, grandchildren, elderly relatives etc for quite possibly over a year - but they haven't seen Mummy
  9. Maybe he had plans to move anyway, and the recent improving property market and the inability for his family to visit combined to push his decision. Speculation of course.
  10. Surely it should be "A Boat"...(in the morning)
  11. or call it the The Howard Quayle. Same result.
  12. It's clear that Farmer Quayle (not quote MBE yet) is quite happy now to continue to follow his "do nothing" policy. When you look at it, he has no legislation in place to prevent students returning home, because they are still classed a residents. Therefore, to whip up and then spin this faux mini Dunkirk-esque media story "we'll get them home!" is frankly purile. There was never any doubt that students would be allowed home. It was a skewed media story created in the UK media to fill a page or two. The real challenge for the Government here is what to do about the growing wave of dissent
  13. I do suspect she may have been categorised as "Gobby Comeover" by now.
  14. Rightly or wrongly, I can't see this situation ending well. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/covid-19-testing-scientist-hits-out-at-government/
