    Onchan's finest

    In Crookall’s case most definitely they used to call him two-planks apparently. The management salaries would be good to see in comparison here but I dont think £33k as a average is likely to be that wrong. Loads of them will have worked there for years getting incremental increases and all the extra shifts and other little perks.

    Nasty piece of work by all accounts.

    I suppose it’s only to be expected at the height of a strike that things get nasty for those perceived to be on the wrong end of employer relations. But to be fair picking her up for that “lie” is hardly creating a smoking gun or a hanging offence. I’ve heard a lot of them get regular overtime and other allowances on top of the basic pay plus there will be loads who have worked there for years who have had incremental rises for 20 years or more. Also the pension contribution made by the post office as their employer. I wouldn’t have thought £33k was too far out to be honest. Even if it is £26k in a worst case starter scenario it’s much better than a starting teacher, nurse or police constable for having bugger all qualifications in most cases.

    If drones are the future Geoff Corkish has a whole second career ahead of him.

    It is true. I’m sorry the level of your public denial doesnt change what most people think.

    If it heats up tomorrow I’m sure the “Wardrobe Manager” will be round with some nice shorts and a lighter Post Office fleece.

    Work / life balance is a good issue as I bet this time of years those working for Manx Independent or Hermes don’t have any. It’s a good rake of money and a very secure pension for a very good work life balance as it stands.

    But why would anyone imagine that in the first place? So if it isn’t true (I’d say it’s very unlikely) really the problem would seem to be theirs and theirs alone as I would doubt anyone would be stupid enough to do half the things that the lunatic Corrin and his cohorts claim. It seems to me social media just breeds paranoia spread by idiots.

    Well it isn’t if it isn’t true. It’s evidence of a paranoid delusional mind if it isn’t true rather than of just a less than cordial relationship.

    It’s the reality of working life for most people (except those who work in government)

    I would imagine that that’s an imaginary conspiracy as well. I’ve seem some stuff on Facebook but it largely seems to be made up by that nutter Corrin and a few mad women that also post on his site. I’d say the odds of it being reality are pretty slim.

    It’s happened to me more than once and I’ve done it to other people several times. It’s called ‘reality’ when a business isn’t performing and can’t afford to pay rates of pay and benefits which are unsustainable. It only ever results in individual redundancies to save costs if collectively people don’t accept a bit of a trim. So they either save themselves collectively; or watch their colleagues get picked off over the next 18 months to dump costs and hope it won’t hit them individually,
