  1. I am trying to find a "listen again" link for the emergency Tynwald debate that Alf Cannan requested and which took place later yesterday. I can only find the Handsard dealing with Shimmin's statement, the CM's Statement and the initial questions flowing from the CM's Statement - I can't find the later special debate. There are a couple of links on the Tynwald website but they only seem to be snapshots of the debate that took place which went on for ages but I only caught a bit of. Is there any way of listening to the full special debate and can anyone help me with this? Thanks PI
  2. So very sad, what a tragedy. RIP to the little lass and prayers for her family and those affected.
  3. Thanks Stu, I will remind myself of that next time I am quaking in my boots ready for take off
  4. Thanks Albert, that makes me feel better. I'll just man up. I need to get over these wobbles related to flying...
  5. I am due to fly with CityWing soon (to Gloucester) and have to say that I am really rather scared now after reading this thread. I didn't used to be a bad flyer at all but have become increasingly nervous over the past few years. I have an engagement in Gloucester and flying directly there seemed like a no brainier. However, I am wondering if I should consider an alternative route.
  6. Yep. Linky: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/money/news/article-2257942/Bankers-hundreds-questioned-Isle-Man-offshore-tax-avoidance-scheme.html

  9. of course, I'm unbiased. Yes, I have a view, I'm not on the fence. But I do not know Peter Karran, I have never met him, I have no interest in supporting him or being against him. I simply do not think that he is an effective Minister.
  10. I am neither a troll nor a hater of PK (as a person opposed to him as a politician) or LibVan. With respect, just saying he doesn't have the intelligence gets my exact point across which is "he does not have the intelligence" required to carry out the role of Education Minister competently. If you have a different opinion, that's fine, but an unwarranted personal attack against me gets you nowhere in putting your point across. You clearly seem to have some kind of link or connection to PK. I do not know him, it is purely my unbiased view having observed him over the years.
  11. Karran - proper opposition? The guy is a waffling clown with no credibility. All he's missing is a big pair of clown shoes and a clown car (though he's got a red nose). I do hope Alf Cannan becomes the opposition. There were a couple of good speeches yesterday, from him, Beecroft, and Hall. Karran needs to retire. We need serious solutions - not that idiot. He is just a waste of Tynwald's time as well as our time - and despite all his waffle - he consitently achieves NOTHING other than being laughed at and not taken seriously. He is also destroying his own party IMO. He should be kep
  12. I am now in favour of a national speed limit. I have wavered in my views over the years but I have finally been convinced that the time has come. I am a supporter of the TT in general. I think that it is beneficial financially for the Island and I am also very proud of its unique qualities. I find watching the organised races exhilarating and I enjoy trotting down to the beer tent to soak up the buzz. I would not want to see the TT disappear and I would not want other posters to wrongly assume that I am a TT/petrol-head ‘hater’. I’m not. However, I am not ashamed to admit that I am ab
  13. John Wright would have to confirm this, I believe that MR would have to make the presenters redundant first, pay statuary redundancy money, then offer the freelance contracts. Failure to pay redundancy would be a criminal offence? Also wasn't one presenter kept on as an employee? Who was that - Alex? I didn't think that it had been confirmed who was going to be kept on?? The only thing I have seen were the press reports saying that 1 out of the 5 or 6 people at risk would remain as an employee.
  14. Best of luck to all those athletes competing in the Commonwealth Youth Games from around the world this week. I hope that it is a fantastic week.
