    I can’t believe that Bus Vannin are coming in for so much stick when we have a carrier such as EasyJet getting away with cancellations left right and centre? They seem to be arbitrarily slashing their flights at virtually zero notice with no offer of transportation to your destination within a reasonable amount of time! Are they headed into administration and should we be doing something about it? Particularly as we enter TT time! I have just received word of a party of five who were flying in this afternoon being offered an alternative of Wednesday, the day they were going home!
  2. I don't know what everyone thought the implications of printing billions of pounds and handing them out so people didn't have to go to work would be? Well now we know, rampant inflation, high prices and dwindling savings! Now the UK chancellor is about to throw some fuel on the fire with payments to every household etc etc. Bloody hell, what's the point?

    I sometimes wonder if jealousy tends to exaggerate speed?
  4. The cash wasted on the elaborate vaccine centres, also appalling. All for the sake of some portable screens or curtains. Now they are hesitant to dismantle the things and the airport looks a joke! I am actually sick to death of hearing about the paralysing incompetence of our government, it’s a shameful disgrace! What happened to the auditor general, he could have saved us millions during the last two years alone, if he ever existed at all?
  5. I believe Chinese were the largest group at 120,000 and Nigerians the largest growth at 43,000. This is all visas granted, including study etc. I can't find a table to explain the rest of the nationalities, I'll keep looking. Likewise I'm not sure what net migration is either.

    Flags at the start and podium I guess?
  7. So much for taking back control, gross immigration in 2021 was over 1,000,000 for the first time in history!

    Me too, I know cars and bikes can handle the increased speeds since the sixties but in the event of an accident, the human body can not. Yes, but one or the other, some people over estimate their skills. I think most people just want to ride around the course at an acceptable speed. Others imagine that they are the next big thing and endanger themselves and everyone else! No Scouts this year, their leaders can't be bothered, so you can stand down!

    A bit of bollox there Boris, we don't have anything like the traffic density of much of the UK, nor the enclosed spaces. Despite not having the emission testing capabilities, which we may now have at the new testing station, cars have been pretty much self regulating for about twenty years as far as emissions are concerned. There will be some going around which are faulty but not to the extent that we are a toxic hell. I don't know of anywhere where you can taste the toxicity of exhaust fumes like you can in some urban areas in the UK?
  10. Chancellor announces spending on relief for lower income bracket. Diverts a bit of attention away from Johnson. You can’t solve a problem by throwing money at it, unless the problem is that people know you’re a venal, lying, callous, bullying, blustering, incompetent, hypocritical slippery toad, and are likely to vote you out of office, in which case you very much hope that maybe you can.
  11. Guns are banned at the NRA convention in Texas this weekend when Trump speaks. Let that sink in.
  12. Unfortunately not, the pain goes after a while.
  13. I don't think anyone is against Russia or the Russian people, it's their ludicrous regime which keeps them in some imaginary war which only exists because they are being kept in fear! This won't be resolved in a short timescale, intelligent Russians are getting out as they see no long term future. Those left behind will be easily manipulated by Putin and his successors for many years.

    F@ck Off, Bastard!
  15. I've no time for this arguing, I'm off down to the city centre to score some whores and drugs!

    I can't see you ever being allowed to camp on that piece of grass to have made a tradition of it anyway? The guys at the Dhoon are doing no harm and should have been moved 40 years ago if there was a problem!

    And all the local motorhome dwellers who leave the island don't do exactly the same thing? It's a matter of convenience and being able to get what you need I would think, rather than an attempt to undermine the local economies!
  18. That's what I keep saying!
  19. Am I the only person who feels sorry for David Ashford?
  20. A bit unkind, he's only been in the job a few months, and the cock ups are almost entirely that of the CS anyway, from the previous administration. His predecessor was seen off by the CS as the intended sacrificial lamb for their incompetence, although the CE did go, probably a first! There has been a huge swing to madness in identity politics and this distorts the voting patterns, the looneys don't always get in, but they take votes from people who probably should!
  21. Yes, agreed doc. The big problem in my opinion is the culture that runs through the whole of government. "Don't rock the boat, don't change anything, it's served us well for years" is the mantra. By "us" they mean themselves, heaven forbid that the gravy train should lose steam, well I think it's about to, unless they change the fuel!
  22. Cases have doubled in the UK, 20 now! We're dooooomed!
  23. Almost every damn thing which our government hail as an innovation or an exciting project, actually turns to shit! They then scrabble around trying to defend their mates from the indefensible. This case didn't require much foresight to realise what could happen, even I as a layman said at the time that there should be something to prevent people walking into the road, let alone a poor cyclist! Monumental levels of incompetence in the CS, and nobody is ever held to account.
  24. Perhaps we should have applied for the title 'Soviet Socialist Republic of Douglas'?
  25. Well, even if it is, social media is a fact of life, use it wisely but ignore it at your peril.
