    "Bungle" Moorehouse strikes again in Sesame Street

    Spar had pictures in local paper giving out cheques to local charities that they had collected by charging for bags. Albert, you kept quiet about the lottery win but have given game away by mentioning you can afford to shop in Spar, Flannels next I expect !!!!!

    More questions

    Daft Daphne is at it again, not content with persecuting the poor goats she is now after the wallabies. Also asking everyone about all things relating to education....pity she had not been given one perhaps she would start concentrating on important matters, does she realised how much it costs for each of these questions to be answered, of course she is not paying !!!! If you read this next weeks question paper you will see what I am getting at.

    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    This woman is shameless, ok she has done her best whilst being bullied by the EU elite but she must know her solution will not get through parliament so why is she continuing this charade ?

    "Bungle" Moorehouse strikes again in Sesame Street

    Yes, well said credit where credit is due he did raise the matter of the letter that was sent out that was very badly written and could be construed as threatening. If someone in the private sector had sent a letter like this to clients they would be collecting their p45s by now but in the civil service...civil..now that is a laugh, there is no such thing as consequences, this is where , over the years things have evolved and now they are all teflon coated and we are paying the price.

    Between him and daft Daphne it looks as if the circus that is coming has well and truly arrived.
  6. Charlie Brown obviously does not do the shopping in his house, potatoes, tomatoes, onions etc are certainly more expensive on the Island, you should get out more and get your facts right before telling people they are talking shit unfortunately their is no cure for ignorance or stupidity.
  7. Anyone who has paid an oil bill or done food shopping know the truth. I would love to see how the price of food is calculated and which items go into the imaginary basket. We are told to eat more fish and veggies, and fruit, all these items are far more expensive on the Island than over the water. The cheapest food is rubbish food but if that is all that people can afford they have to eat it get fat and sick. Instead of having all these obesity experts, who are usually on the chubby side themselves why not give school children vouchers for their local baths. Of course, I think it is in September when they calculate the upgrade of state pensions so I bet the inflation figures are kept low then using a different scale commonly known as pie in the sky. Thomas is nothing short of a con man at worst or illusionist at best, smoke and mirrors !!!! I wonder how much the 2018 year of cost, it was not really very inspiring. Vanity operation, again.

    The Art of distraction

    An all Island vote is the way to go and a reduction of MHK numbers 17 would be ample to deal with the shocking seagull and goat problem we have. Then if a voter was impressed by a candidate they could vote for them even if they lived in another sheading, the Island is only the size of a small town after all. The candidates could travel around the Island and hold meetings in each sheading, also have printed matter delivered by post office by the same deal as all the s...e I have delivered on a daily basis, they are certainly not paying 50p a house. Manx Radio could invite a few at a time for interview to be played twice a day so everyone had the chance to listen if they wanted. It could be done, it would not have to cost anymore than the current way. As for Legco it should be done away with and a scrutiny committee of three, with legal knowledge be set up. There is far too much granny farming and having to vote for best of bunch voting at the minute, this is the very reason people do not bother they look at the candidates and do not believe any of them are fit to lead the country. We are overgoverned and led by shallow people who are more interested in retaining their seats next time around than doing the best for the Island.

    Manx Radio

    Phil has been drawling on lately again, irritating, why does he not ploughing another field or take a ride up his nice new road ?

    Or too expensive to remain, the cost of basic food is ever increasing, sure there are offers but not great if you live on your own. Then there is the housing aspect there are young families stuck in flats paying high rents who cannot get social housing because of single people occupying three bedroom houses, there should be more sheltered housing and people should have to vacate when they are sole occupants, this will never happen because politicians are wary of losing votes. If you look around on polling day it is mostly elderly or middle aged people who bother to vote so they must not be upset. In fact this is the reason the big issues do not get addressed politicians covering their backs, no controversy, eyes always on the next election. I know in the day when politicians were usually men of means, excluding the Labour Party who were usually postmen, it may not have been as democratic as it is now but then the members were not so worried about losing their seats and would stick their necks out if they had a cause to support, now what would most of them do if they got the flick at the next election? Also jobs, I doubt many speak English, if they had to go to court who would interpretate . There is one bright spark who is pushing for this who says she speaks the language is she going to be with them 24/7 to assist them in daily life. I still maintain they are after another million pounds to go away, sickening.

    No, I thought it was about 600 at the last count and there were 500 on the dole, not IT experts apparently.

    Manx Radio

    All this breast beating about Manx Radio is a cunning stunt to distract the public from the real problems the Island have such as the Health Service, pension black hole, rating reform etc.. It gets resurrected every few years and now they have discussed Syrians, goats, seagulls etc.. they find something else, lets have a go at Manx Radio that will keep the great unwashed occupied for a bit. Next will come Brexit in some shape or form and all our troubles will be blamed on that. Some of the new intake of MHKs are so shallow it is frightening they are supposed to be running the country for gods sake not complaining about their brothers Sarnie has been nicked, or trying to exhort another million pounds guilt tripping us about vulnerable Syrians, there are vulnerable people on the Island. I would rather give the Salvation Army, who do untold work in a very quiet way a million pounds.

    Flooding at Richmon Hill

    They used to, in the day, have cambers on the roads so the water drained off either side and down the numerous grids it is only since they built flat roads there has been this problem.

    Daft Daphne is at it again

    Agreed, nothing against anyone but these Syrians are vulnerable so it is being said, we cannot look after our own vulnerable people, has anyone else noticed how many suicides there seem to be in the last few years, it is a tragedy and I have no figures but It seems to me an awful lot for a small Island. The Island has become a two tiered society the haves and the have nots and if it was not the the Salvation Army who do a great job and the food banks goodness knows how some people would get by. How would they get by I doubt they speak English so jobs would be a problem and there are actually not a lot of jobs going at the moment unless you are into IT or a care worker.

    The Art of distraction

    I am sure that we all agree that there are some very serious issues on the Island that need addressing, difficult and tricky...yes but the longer they are left in the long grass the bigger the problems will get. We all know what they are, pension black holes, the Health Service, rating reform, social housing fairness and so on. What is getting done about these pressing problems...not a lot instead we have politicians, mostly the new intake, banging on about seagulls, goats,water wheels,Syrian immigrants, again and again, Manx Radio, again,again and again and now happy day !!! What is going on , is it cultivated distraction to keep everyone's minds of the really serious stuff or what. Do they feel they are not capable of tackling the sensitive issues, lose a few votes perhaps, if so they should stand down and let people with a brain, even half a brain would be a plus try to sort things out. The longer this deliberate avoidance goes on the nearer we get to the next election when all action stops in case anyone gets upset. It is extremely frustrating, anyone can be forgiven for getting things wrong but no one gets remembered for doing nothing of consequence.
