  1. Sorry to be a tad late in my response to Mr Thomas’ amusing comparison of his Year of the Island with the 1951 Festival of Britain. I doubt he was yet born by that time, the penultimate year of the King’s reign. I remember being taken by my father to the South Bank, where the Festival Hall survives. I gazed up in amazement at the Skylon, explored the Dome of Discovery, marvelled at the Shot Tower and saw for the first time... a television! The event inspired thousands of weary people in post war Britain to work together for a better future. I wish the Manx version well, and look forward to seeing it begin. I hope it has the impact of the ‘51 event!
  2. A quick question to the professional fishermen/women amongst MF readers: Does the latest set of EU regulations regarding by-catch apply to boats in Manx waters? If so, will this require the counting and recording of catches in a Manx port?
  3. He’ll frighten his grandchildren!
  4. If you are for real, B&R, let’s ask you some questions, you will soon find out what the voters want. BTW it might be as well not to use a pseudonym. It’s a better way of getting known. OK: my first question, how will Brexit affect the island and how could you help protect fishing stocks in Manx waters?

    But the flying Dutchman was. He will amaze and delight for many years. I am pleased for Lewis, he fought well. The little cuddle from Seb was good to see, all good sporting stuff.

    That will teach Ferrari! (Kimi)
  7. The present access road is fine, it just needs a sign instructing drivers, particularly White Van Man to put wing mirrors in. You don’t need them along there.
  8. The heating here went on again last week. Standing by for the huge oil bills. Log fires blazing every night.

    Correction to my previous post, I just learned that in fact he is replacing Stoffel van Dorne.
  10. Yes, that was a lively place for a good casual dinner. Opposite the Sea Terminal, but long gone. Mr Bowers stood for MHK in the last election, I think, but did not win a seat. Perhaps he should o back to catering.
  11. I only just spotted this thread, the organisers, marshals and teams have my total sympathy. Far too often the work that goes into these events by unpaid amateurs goes unappreciated by the powers that be. Bad publicity for the Island as well.
  12. His episodes of Top Gear were cringe makingly bad.
  13. And I agree there is no need to swear so much. I just wanted to tell you how strongly I felt about Marmite.
  14. Chris Evans is a Marmite presenter, you either love him or loathe him. I prefer Marmite.
