  1. The island's government have no idea how to make the island more attractive, as evidenced by the constant rebranding of the department responsible for economic development who come up with white elephant after white elephant and costs the taxpayers more than they bring in. This whole cruise ship idea smacks of a typical response all politicians come up with, worldwide, when faced with a difficult dilemma. Do something. Anything. It's far better to waste money doing something than to save money while being seen to be doing nothing.
  2. I hear a rumour they are hardly here anyway so it's just a waste of an asset sitting idle, so better to disappear. Monaco or Singapore the likely destinations for an abode.
  3. It's just a formality though. Anyone showing any ingenuity which might contribute to paying their pensions for them will have government officials all over you like a bad rash.
  4. The 'small change fee' never used to be there. We caught an early flight back from Rome a few years ago and didn't get charged anything as I had look at the website in the hotel room beforehand and decided to go down to the airport as it never mentioned a charge. Nor did we get charged one either.
  5. There never used to be.
  6. Easyjet offer that service. If you're ever at an airport where they fly more than once a day.

    War on plastic

    Wouldn't use a water fountain even if they put them everywhere. We had a whole house filter installed at home for about 10 years now and every now and then I'll taste the tap water if I'm round someone's house and once you've not drank chlorinated shite for a while you realise how awful it is.
  8. I wonder if we just give everyone a grant to have a wood burner fitted and then furnish them with an unlimited supply of Manx £10 notes to heat their homes it might turn out more cost efficient and environmentally beneficial. Than to establish another government department to do nothing but PR exercises and fly around the world telling everyone else how the Isle of Man is doing it's bit.
  9. Have never read such absolute rubbish as this. A Climate Emergency Consultative Transformation Team ? What exactly does that mean in old money? The climate has been and will continue to change in perpetuity but now we need a 'team' to navigate our way through it? Keeps a load of timewasters in jobs I suppose instead of them clogging up the dole queue. Apart from our newly imported environment guru obviously.
  10. Wonder if they'll add the IoM as a stop off route from Dublin, if that route isn't putting enough bums on seats to fill the planes.
  11. Any recent feedback on this from people in the know?
  12. If it's scumbags knifing scumbags then at least it's a much needed form of societal cleansing.
  13. I thought it was only high priority armed backup that was coming from Douglas. Pretty sure I see the local plod in their cars and parked outside the station around Peel most evenings including weekends.
  14. Love the phrase ‘fake news’ when in relation to government. It basically means how do we stop news getting out that we would rather have kept under the carpet.
