    Pubs closing

    Yes, because the previous owner, not brewery, surrendered his licence immediately before the transfer should have gone through, and they had to start with a new application from scratch. It’s all on the public record.

    Pubs closing

    Earlier in this thread it was said Hooded Ram was closed. Seems to be open on North Quay and selling Hooded Ram brewed product. Certainly been busy with FB postings. I noticed the big warehouse on Hills Meadow is up for rent. So perhaps it’s not all doom and gloom.

    Brewery didn’t try to stop them, either in Walpole Avenue or Peveril Square.

    Steam Packet to be sold

    Has there been a departure on pricing? Does the existing UA cover passenger and freight fares, or just passenger?

    Basic Maths?

    He borrowed £100, paid back £2. So he owes £98. He’s got a pair of jeans worth £97 and £1 which is £98. The question is a trick, Max. He doesn’t owe the £98 + £2 paid. He owes £98 after paying £2 and he’s got £1 and the jeans. Expensive jeans. Must have gone to flannels.

    A new user agreement hasn’t been negotiated yet. Let alone a new one in place. The old one continues. Crystal Ball territory.

    5G Network Radiation?

    The guy hasn’t successfully appealed yet. He was convicted. The trial didn’t make any findings about 5G. Just that you can’t scream murderer at people lawfully going about their business in the Street. Yes, he’s applied for leave to appeal, presumably on new evidence grounds, that application was due to be heard 8/2 but has been adjourned because CPS haven’t been able to interview original witnesses about what Steele is now alleging. Of course that being reported by Steele as being oppression, attempts to delay to wear him down. It’s hyperbole. Standard stuff. Appears he may have been taken to court in mid January for something else like an order that he doesn’t carry on with publicising his allegations pending the appeal. Not clear what happened. Seems the judge refused to “gag” him. Seems to be something he uploaded to YouTube. The only report mentioning £11,000 costs is the “Trust” piece. Given the inaccuracy of their reporting of the first case, I’d not rely on anything they print. He is fund raising to avoid being sent to prison. However that’s a red herring. He was fined £180 and ordered to pay £300 towards prosecution costs. Total £480. Payable £5 per week. Only going to prison if he doesn’t pay.

    Understanding the Law

    It’s word for word the same as what is printed in the paper, on the front page, and readily readable in the link you provided Neil

    Yes it is.

    Isn’t it just the paper regurgitating their article on line from the print edition on 7 February? Nothing new?

    Plans for lord street

    what makes you think it wont? The developer will have gone to a lot of trouble and expense, first with the tender and second with planning. They have pre let/expressions of interest from Travelodge so the only likely reason not to go ahead will be if they, as anchor tenant, withdraws. That and manx crabbism

    MUA the subject of whistle-blowing over dangerous failings

    https://www.judgments.im/content/ET 18-27 Alfred Jones v MUA (phr 2).pdf The claimant raised 27 instances of whistleblowing in his case. He only had to get home on one. Mr Stewart found he got home on 4. What was important about this? Well, like other cases, if you make a protected ( whistle blowing ) disclosure the financial limits on Tribunal awards are removed. Its a necessary preliminary point. Mr Stewart doesn’t characterise the claimant as a control freak. That was alleged by MUA witnesses. He had to record it. The judgment is highly critical of the MUA in respect of several others of the 23 incidents which were not found to be protected disclosures. Its a thorough decision, well written and cogent.

    And as you won’t actually define and delimit inner city... it’s clear that not only are you comparing bedsits with self contained flats, and not in the centre of London.

    You contradict yourself, trip yourself up. First it was your friend the landlord letting out at charity rates in slum ridden inner city London. Then it was you personally living there. You won’t be comparing like with like though. The areas you describe £600 won’t get a bedsit, never a flat. I very rarely visit the major shopping streets, but I do go down the side and backstreets, aimlessly wandering. When I first did it, 45 years ago there were still some very run down inner city areas. Not any longer. Its almost like TJ reincarnated.

    No, please specify which boroughs and parishes.

    Where are the shitty inner city slums in central London? You can only afford to live in “inner city” London if you are wealthy or are lucky enough to have local authority, social or housing association accommodation. But, Yes, Douglas is overpriced.

    All those words to say “we spent a tiny bit to promote a few local things, and we will do it again, but call it something different”

    Agreed, it’s Ballalough Crescent. It was a flat roofed extension. It’s still there.

    I’m getiing confused. Yes it’s the second one, with the imps. It’s on the corner of Glenlough Circle. The orange TT is on the corner of Ballagarey Road.
