    Pulrose golf course gets built on, developer does land swap deal with Corporation, golfers move up hill and across the road into the big field by the incinerator
  2. This is sort of where I'm coming from and the reason I've had it with everything now; and can you imagine what it will be like if we grow the event to get another 10,000 bikers over as the new marketing agency has been tasked to deliver? It's not a good investment. It's an investment into further death and misery. Without those sort of restrictions we cannot police and control the number of bikes or the speed, and if those restrictions start having to be applied anyway a lot fewer will start coming. How many road deaths are we up to now? Four? And the event hasn't really started yet. But it's all the locals fault don't forget reading the Police tweets; were just drunken, fighting, speeding, careless idiots who seem to deliberately wait for these two weeks of the year to get drunk and disorderly and kill people on the roads. This is where things get a little fuzzy. Cloud Nine have been saying that they will be concentrating on the non biker market by arranging attractions to bring people here while the TT is going on? This shouldn't result in more bikes on the road? I think we do have to grow up and take the view that we can't train some of the lunatics to behave themselves. We have to take measures to restrict what they get up to on our roads, it's not just their lives they are playing with, locals have to go about their business and shouldn't have to be scared to venture onto the roads. Other major motorcycle events all over the world operate in speed restricted areas and it doesn't stop riders attending! Fair enough but I find it hard to believe that Cloud Nine will find thousands of people who are interested in bikes and the TT but who won't want to come and experience the TT without their bikes. It's a hardcore event with a hardcore following and if they grow visitor numbers it will put more bikers on the road and I would argue that increased numbers and the good weather has been a big driver behind the road fatalities this year. I genuinely think this is a dead investment in more ways than one and it's not an event that should be grown as we can't control the outcome of that growth. In fact I think it's totally irresponsible of us to be investing millions to grow spectator numbers when the roads and the police clearly can't cope with the impact of any growth in numbers. I think it's hard to believe that Cloud Nine will find thousandS more people who are interested in the TT. Skelly is full of shit, it won't happen so I wouldn't worry about it. We're investing the money. Significant amounts. It might all be bullshit; but the basis of the whole investment is fundamentally flawed even if it is a delusional false investment that the taxpayer is being ripped off for. The transformation of the Newquay surfing festival from being a festival of surfing into a music festival with waves over the last few years may serve as a warning. They (the organisers) brought in experts to grow the brand awareness.

    Mountain Watch

    Given that there seems to have been a cluster of accidents at Brandywell this year, I can see that being subject to safety improvements ( like Kate's and the Creg) before you get a speed limit imposed on the mountain road.
  4. That'll be Aliexpress "The seller doesn't ship to the Isle of Man." But they will if you set the address so the IOM is in the county of Merseyside I'm led to believe
  5. Empire are not official ford dealers And have removed all Ford branding from their buildings
  6. Leachates from landfill sites are usually tested for a vast array of chemicals including, but not exclusively, cadmium, mercury, caesium, potassium, lead etc typical test suites can be found on the inter web. These are related to materials that may have been disposed of in landfill sites by our forefathers, the leachates from the Raggat landfill were originally disposed of straight into the river Neb, but the combination of leachates and the effect of the chemical and biological oxygen demand of the fluids brought bad juju on the river and the activity was suspended and replaced with a tanker drawing of the material and pouring it down the sewer system near Peel power station. Now it doesn't take a great leap of faith to suggest what may or may not be in the river silts of the harbour from pre marina times from the disposal of leachate into the river system. We are told that these are now pumped to sea via the underground white elephant pumping chamber from the failed attempt to connect Peel to the IRIS scheme, but this was completed after the Raggat stopped taking waste. Whilst background levels can exist naturally, the testing is carried out to show if elevated levels are related to disposal activities in a particular location. The levels are usually expressed in terms of microgrammes per litre of fluid.
  7. It would appear from the photographs posted on facebook by Phil Kneen that this theory is actually happening!
  8. Well this years election campaign seems to be following his last successful outing. Election coming up = be seen as a man of the people around town, by sitting outside The Creek or The Pevril Then disappear of the face of the earth until the next vote
  9. Nobody would have been stupid enough to discharge the leachate drawn from the Raggat on a regular basis into the tidal harbour after it was closed to make a marina would they....
  10. It's not the water quality we should be worried about, it's the removal of hazardous waste (EWC code 17-05-05) from the harbour, transporting it through Peel by truck and tipping it into a field right by the main road at Poortown Quarry, which as others have pointed out in here would be a criminal offence anywhere else. Biggest load of bullshit I've read in years. Your post is more hazardous than the sludge from the marina.It is not full of plutonium or caesium, does not glow in the dark and will not make you grow another head or 3 more limbs. Get a fucking grip! Dilligaf whilst it might make you feel big to react to my post in this manner. Some of us actually work in the real world dealing with waste, and have had to spend many many years doing experimental tests to prove what we expect to happen when waste is placed in an environment. Not to mention the planning permissions and restrictions placed on how we can operate. If you choose not to believe this posting I wish you well in the future Like I said before, just bullshit.You know what is in Peel marina, I know what is in Peel marina and every Tom, Dick and Harry knows what is in Peel marina. I don't feel big saying that what you say is bullshit, but I think you put yourself above us mere mortals, what with working in the real world and that. The world has gone mad with too many people like you thinking you are some sort of guardian to the commoner. I work in the private sector, not for the government. If I decided to dig a big fucking hole at the side of the public highway to tip a recognised hazardous waste into I'd be laughed out of the planning meeting. Oh hang on that planning meeting hasn't happened. And the people employed by the government to police the private sector, have decided to big a big fucking hole at the side of the road And............. You are Phil Gawne and I claim my £5. Goodnight x
