    Bell (end) charged

    All to save a few hundred quid. Why would you bother? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=47344&headline=Dome%20animator%20forged%20tax%20disc&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2019

    Nobles hospital

    That might explain the huge delays for getting any sort of test done from the end of last week.

    MER tram goes hurtling down the mountain, AGAIN

    I think they are just trying to say that he massively lied about how significant the event was when he was originally asked to comment.

    Louis Group disqualification hearings

    It’s taken long enough http://www.iomtoday.co.im/article.cfm?id=42548&headline=Disqualification%20hearing%20for%20Louis%20Group%20directors&sectionIs=NEWS&searchyear=2018 Must be at least 5 years since the funds and the Company went tits up. More “lessons to be learned” no doubt Still it was “only” £40M. Hardly worth bothering about really.

    Louis Group disqualification hearings

    Oh right, no I agree, that’s why I reposted. No point in a story about nothing. It would appear nothing has changed.

    And now we have Jo Pack, who knows an awful lot about .. Jo Pack ..

    Louis Group disqualification hearings

    1. Because it was reported in the paper today (this is the local news section), and 2. Because a lot of people lost a lost an awful of money and some people have been waiting a very long time to see this lot gets what’s coming to them. That’s why. I dont think it sends out a good message about investing in the IOM when almost 10 years later they’re still wandering around thanking God they’re not inside and all the newspaper reports on is - still nothing has happened

    Isle of Man News and Politics

    He's a dimwit with a lot of the stuff he posts on FB. You get the impression he’s someone whose general state of rage starts low and ends high every day of the week.

    Chief Minister doesn't know the largest employers

    Islands top 5 largest pies might have got a response ?

    Dangermouse VED avoidance

    But he works for Government and is a really good bloke!

    You can almost work out who is the equivalent MF character!

    Dangermouse VED avoidance

    He must have one of those solar trickle chargers to keep the battery good for 4 years without ever using the car!

    Dangermouse VED avoidance

    Sorry just seen this. Didn’t mean to start a duplicate thread. As you say he got off very lightly indeed with an 8 week ban.

    Chief Minister doesn't know the largest employers

    I’m not even sure it’s a GDPR issue. It’s not personal data. It’s just an excuse to say nothing.

    Chief Minister doesn't know the largest employers

    I genuinely think that they don’t have a scooby doo which is worrying. There can’t possible be a DPA issue for not responding as you say. If you were running your own business you’d know exactly who your top 5 or 10 best or biggest customers were. Here they’re just waiting for the next VAT cheque to arrive from the UK so they can spend other people’s money. They don’t need to know who their biggest taxpayer clusters are.

    Chief Minister doesn't know the largest employers

    When I saw that question tabled in knew that would be the answer. Fact is IOMG doesn’t know as it doesn’t collate the data. What business couldn’t actually work out who their Top 10 customers are?

    Bullying at school

    From his numerous postings on Facebook Groups that parent does appear to be a massive moaning bell-end though who seems to blame everyone else for the difficulties he seems to have in life.

    Upsetting the nutters

    If you get the bus out of Peel it usually goes right past his window when it turns left at the police station.

    It is categorically a gaffe by definition.

    Year Of Our Island

    I think he said something like he won’t stand again provided there are no serious repercussions from Brexit as he would view it as job done or something like that. It was a George Bush style “mission accomplished” sort of statement.

    Upsetting the nutters

    Talking of upsetting nutters I see that Vader has got involved in this now and is encouraging people to report them to the police on his Fakebook Group. So the angry mob now has something other than dog poo to be angry about for a few days. It’s like shooting fish in a barrel!

    Right wing Terrorism

    Pretty much the same sort of hatred that goes through the mind of someone who decides to blow up young children and their parents at a pop concert.

    Lost battle

    It’s a pyramid scheme hence many of the blind eyes.
