  1. As he is a minister in the government party and has not been sacked it is fair top say he voted in favour. This is the living embodiment of collective responsibility, I doubt if he personally was in favour of it but he has signed up to CR and complied with the 'contract'. Sometimes pragmatism wins out. That's politics.
  2. Just proving that I know what patronise means
  3. Shuts door and hides in the kitchen.
  4. Oh go on then, if you must. the posts following mine seem to support my view. I'm still waiting.
  5. I don't think he/she is..... But you and Patrick are doing a sterling job of proving Geoff Corkish correct.... So stop now! What have we written that would get Goeff's ire up? It'll be a far richer learning experience if you think about it, rather than me tell you. Don#t patronise I don't think he/she is..... But you and Patrick are doing a sterling job of proving Geoff Corkish correct.... So stop now! What have we written that would get Goeff's ire up? It'll be a far richer learning experience if you think about it, rather than me tell you. Don't patronise me, point out the misinformation I posted.

  7. They would certainly need permission to use the symbol, certainly 'TT' anyway. The 'three legs logo' is free to use for anyone that feels like it, the official government seal however needs permission. I know of a person that built a multi prize winning vehicle, exhibited it all over UK and Europe, got front page of magazine treatment and many accolades for his work. Only problem was when someone wrote to the IOM Gov and grassed him up for using the IOM seal on the paintwork. No publicity from the Gov even though he made loads of good publicity for the island, just a terse letter to not do it again, freedom to flourish and all that. (google 'Mad Manx' for images)
  8. I wonder how many fails are of 16 yr olds?
  9. I hope there are no ill-informed Nigerian Princes reading this forum. Interestingly I heard Hot Tub Willy on the radio today on about this development, bye election anywhere near Douglas soon?
  10. Thanks for the link, picked up some wicked dub sounds there.
  11. ET is happy to quote a figure of £4m savings by introducing these loans. Not true at all, the Government party will be spending exactly the same amount as they would without this policy. The 'savings' are only that instead of the figure being totally expenditure some of it will be converted into debts owed and therefore classed as assets. A win win for fast Eddie, less expenditure and an increase in assets. Doubling the amount on the books. A reduction in expenditure of £4m and increase in assets of £4m. No pay back for at least 4 years and with a 30%-40% figure for default the amount paid back will not even cover the cost of administering the scheme. Purely an exercise in arithmetic and accountancy. And for this we saddle the aspiring young of this island with debt lasting for many years and the threat of a bad credit rating if they don't pay the interest from day one. I wonder if, when they send out the letters asking these students, they all answer "No" to the question of whether they are earning 31k yet when and if the books will ever balance. But of course by then it's another administration left to answer the queries from the electorate as to why the whole farrago has exploded in the faces of the taxpayers of this fair island.
  12. I'm sure the sawmill in St Johns can help and it's all locally grown timber.
  13. Watch the DVD and read the highway code. I recall that if you fail twice you have to wait a certain time before taking it again, use that time to study and understand the test, it's a multiple choice test and you may get any question of the many, maybe the same question twice or thrice asked in different ways. I think most fail on the hazard perception part, if so then he shouldn't be driving yet as he isn't ready. I'm afraid it's like any test, no study, no pass. I won't wish him luck on his third go as it's not down to luck, it's down to knowledge.
