  1. I did a break down Ramsey in the summer - had a great time. Felt like a real community. So much so, heading back there for a few days leading up to Christmas.
  2. Yes that's what I understand. Ex-courthouse, 1886, but now setting up his own place in Rhumsaa.
  3. Is he also 1886? I don't believe so.
  4. Not the same owner I don't believe...
  5. Ah, yes, some unconscious bias there. And that's where the legislation is flawed. A lot of problem drinkers are middle aged with high level jobs if you believe the NHS statistics. Can't imagine minimum unit pricing will affect them. Are they expected to be more responsible? Or is that bias creeping in again... The more you think about it the more it seems very one sided and I'll conceived really. I'd never thought about it in as much depth as this. Still not too bothered either way, but surely you also need to invest in proper support networks as well as these sort of measures?
  6. I think there was some study that said the people it was aimed at had reduced consumption because they had limited money to spend. There's the negative side of that in that for some it might increase petty crime/theft in order to get what they want. Like I say though, this is aimed at the white lighting cider/buckfast type cheap booze. Nothing that will make a difference to most people, apart from maybe the odd special offer needing to be tweaked to stay on the right side of the pricing.
  7. It will make bugger all difference to 95% or more of the population but might do some good for chronic alcoholics. It has seen some benefit in Scotland I believe. For instance there, the min price for a bottle of wine is around 4.50 to 5, can of cooking lager just under a quid and a 70cl standard bottle of spirits 14.
  8. That's incorrect. I know people that work there and they are now back in.
  9. Why did they? It's not for saving money as they are still paying out the usual prize money of 3k to 5 local charities.
  10. Best cover version in your opinion?
  11. Carly Rae Jepsen. Originally by Joni Mitchell. Great song covered many many times.
  12. By mocking someone like a schoolyard bully? I don't find that funny. And I've seen the results of that behaviour (by adults). Like I say, got nothing nice to say, don't.
  13. How old and how long have they worked there? 💵
  14. Sorry but if you've got nothing useful to say, keep your mouth shut. You're one nasty piece of work. Good on them for spending the time and effort actually going round speaking to voters.
  15. I'm not expecting a reply.... 😅
