  1. Ah but did they check it's passport or it's right to enter the country?
  2. ....and if the frost gets in them?
  3. Sadly, yes. The Isle of Man where the customer comes last.
  4. The long and short of it with this and many so called innovations is, 'customer comes last'.
  5. Chinese build 1000 bed hospital in 5 days! Do you think they can help?
  6. But why? It's so sad that some humans need drugs, booze, fags or other stimulants to lead their lives. Why on earth do folks need adrenelin or anything else? Life is exciting and stimulating without extra chemicals IMO. but then I'm lucky.
  7. How many times have we pointed this out?
  8. Road safety policy today suggests, safety checks, ten year driver tests, speed limits and any other new innovation they can think of. Seems they just want to justify their existence.
  9. Lots going on today but it all seems so confused. holes dug here, filled in there, concrete here concrete dug up there. Hole being dug in a side street. As an engineer I can't see rhyme nor reason, it just seems a chaotic, furious frenzy of un-coordinated disaster. Just STOP! Re-group and do it properly.
  10. perhaps it could be arranged that we are actually told the truth about faults, costs and potential on costs. Also the actual amount of hours that it has actually run compared to how long it has been owned......Then, maybe, fingers could be pointed, blame apportioned and appropriate action taken...........I won't hold my breath.
  11. Anyway, this is a small island with narrow roads and lots of vehicles, for goodness sake, Politicians do your stuff, read the above, no need to spend a lot of cash and just DO IT.
  12. Exactly what I was trying to say. If you notice, I've been saying it for years! Review all roads and LOGICALLY reappraise where and what the speed limit should be.Then, DO IT NOW.
  13. Once again I repeat, we need logical reasons for a particular limit, its location and appropriate level of speed.......then enforce it.
  14. Well my neighbour is from the UK and has opted to continue to receive his UK pension. He thinks its hilarious that not only is his pension greater than mine, (which includes the Manx supplement), he also receives a winter bonus and a heating allowance. Who's the mug?
