  1. What's been lost could have been a real asset for Manx Tourism. What was lost could have featured on Channel 5s Scenic Railway Journeys, showcasing the Isle Of Man to an international audience. Port Erin - Ramsey via Douglas & St John's. Ramsey to Snaefell Summit via Laxey would be up there with the best Railway Journeys in the World. Douglas to Peel would be an attraction now, of course, and would allow a Commuter Service to operate to all the Major towns and City if Government ever want to do so.
  2. Thought some of the members might be interested in a new campaign to re-open the Douglas to Peel Railway. IoM Newspapers have already covered it the campaign. If your interested in signing, you can find the petition here and keep up to date at Twitter and Facebook. Kippers by Rail anyone?
  3. Seen it, pretty funny. Though since when was the Great Nation of Mann run by a mayor?
  4. AFAIK, we make quite a few quid from these issues, so maybe I am missing your point here. Well they're releasing 20,000 £5 coins into circulation that we probably don't need, and it's just a faff keeping the current round pound coins vs the UK new design. My opinion of course! Your opinion is of course complete rubbish. The uk can make its pound coins whichever shape it wants. The Isle Of Man doesn't have to blindly follow the uk. If we want round pound coins, we will have them. If you want british coins, there will be a boat in the morning.
  5. The obvious solution is to stop accepting foreign currency. If we simply don't accept british coins, how the hell can we be inundated with fakes?
  6. So you would rather be lorded over by the idiots across? Are you seriously telling me they have a higher calibre of politician? Boris Johnson is their foreign affairs minister! Let's get our independence, and have Tynwald as our sovereign parliament. I didn't say that I'd 'rather be lorded over by the idiots across', you clearly didn't read my post properly. True, but you did say you thought total independence for Mann was a "really bad idea". So what is the alternative? Being lorded over by the british. Let's push for our independence. Tynwald will have little choice if the Manx peop
  7. So you would rather be lorded over by the idiots across? Are you seriously telling me they have a higher calibre of politician? Boris Johnson is their foreign affairs minister! Let's get our independence, and have Tynwald as our sovereign parliament.
  8. Time to take back OUR sovereignty. Fuck the Lord Of Mann. Time for a sovereign Tynwald able to negotiate our own trade deals and international relations.
  9. If the uk want to change their £1 coins, fine, but I think they should not be accepted tender on Mann. I think Mann should change to only acceding Manx coins and notes.
  10. No, no we wouldn't. The capital needed to do decent production would be more than most people across here could afford. What I object to is the fact that my license fee now goes to pay for Manx Radio. Rather than slyly transferring the annually rebated funds to them they should have negotiated a drop in our license fee. Yes we could. 35,599 households, with a £135 license fee would get the Manx Broadcaster £4,805,865. That plus private funding from the companies involved, plus advertising revenue would get plenty to produce programming and buy licenses to show other tv programmes. The
  11. Tell them to leave then and stop charging Manx people to fund foreign tv. Charge a Manx Charge and start our own TV Service. Get Manx Radio, MTTV, 3FM, Energy FM involved and we could have some quality content.
  12. No. Is this really a serious suggestion? Any such deal would likely be reciprocal, and as such the pensioners over on holiday would contribute no revenue to Isle Of Man Transport. Everyone complains about Isle Of Man Transport making a loss, but they provide many social services for the Manx people. Not for foreign tourists.
  13. The problem is that for some, the Railways are not a novelty day out. Some areas are better connected by Rail than by Bus. Groudle, for example, is better connected by the Rail network.
  14. Why celebrate it anyway? Its a british holiday, nothing to do with us. It's hilarious to see the comeovers importing their customs, whilst getting all worked up about immigration and the destruction of their culture back home.
  15. I'm pretty sure Skelly has board level experience. Wasn't he also a consultant before entering the Keys? I believe he has also ran businesses in the USA, and has represented the Isle Of Man abroad as DED Minister. This all clearly makes him the best qualified for the job of leading the country to full Sovereignty.
