  1. Not sure. Maybe unfit to hold a licence due to the recent ramblings? Not quite sure it's crossed into any form of hate crime it's just the equality issues, random PDA policy etc. Although there are some pretty vile posts on there from the owner. Deserves it in my book.
  2. Closed by the police tonight apparently. According to Facey.
  3. Haha, it has been fact checked and proven to be absolute bollocks as one would expect.
  4. Was it not the Victorians who planted them in the national glens? For decorative purposes?
  5. What really got me is the arrogance of Christian. He used the words 'my councillors'. No, David, they're not your councillors, they're elected by the people and represent the MLP. He might be the leader but they're not his councillors. Self serving, pompous, arrogant arse.
  6. You do realise that Jersey Reds play in the Championship, a division below the Rugby Union Premiership? In all fairness, I doubt the Lions really considered coming here for a warm up game.
  7. Wonder why, as the letter I've seen posted online seems to be pushing this as the way to go? Why could you not get it?
  8. You are confusing investment banking (who do get paid ridiculous salaries) with high street retail banks. Ring fencing was brought in after the crisis to keep that arm of banking well apart from day to day retail. The salaries and bonuses referred to in that article are not in any way similar to what IOM based banking staff will be on.
  9. https://www.insider.co.uk/appointments/rbs-confirms-alison-rose-new-20126381 That's the CEO. I think you're confusing these people with the people who actually make the kind of decisions like this charity one. Who I'd hazard a guess are on a fraction on that.
  10. I'm not quite sure you know what you're talking about here.
  11. No. But you haven't answered my question.
  12. And what would you class obscene salaries? Banks pay considerably less than e.g. gaming, insurance.
  13. Yep I think the payments infrastructure, risk frameworks, regulatory and legal requirements plus any tech/app dev is vastly underestimated by those suggesting a Gov/IOMPO run bank. It would be a very basic bank with very little digital capability, which is the way the world is heading. Sadly the IOM is still living in a bubble of nostalgia about the days of bank managers with bowler hats. That's never coming back. Any young person is probably already using a digital challenger e.g. Revolut. The days of the High St bank are numbered I dare to suggest, so maybe in a way pushing towards digi
  14. NatWest are doing it here and in the channel islands - same letter
  15. By 2 June though you could have people in your garden, in your house I think up to 2 people as well as going for exercise with others provided you were socially distanced. That all started around 20 May. So it wasn't like it is today. Would be interesting to see how it would be approached now if it was organised for say tomorrow.
