  1. I like how one of Boot's main comments is about how big businesses on the island don't pay tax here: "Big businesses operating on the Isle of Man and threatening local enterprise, whilst paying little or no direct taxation, need to be faced down" His roots lie in quite a well known chemist chain, one of which are on the island!!
  2. Just who is this Geoffrey Boot?? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/letters/lord-boot-is-a-real-political-puzzle-to-me-1-3842854 http://www.courier.co.uk/Baron-Boot-steps/story-11997959-detail/story.html Has a bit of a history of upsetting people so might fit in well up the road but I think we might be in for a spot of bother if he gets in. Seems to have quite a high opinion of himself.
  3. Nice to see Tim Crookall taking time out of his busy schedule to jet off to LA for the Special Olympics opening ceremony!! Jersey last month, LA this month, I'm surprised he didn't try to wangle the NZ trip!
  4. I have just got some life cover from IFS on Bucks Road, the guy's name is Mike Twist and could highly recommend him as he explained what I needed and gave me the basic cover which was cheaper than I thought. I'm approaching 50 so thought it was about time! have a look on www.ifs.im
  5. http://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_289010.html Don't we already have one? Does it attract many visitors and warrant the need for another one which is obviously going to be more cost?!
  6. Stilwell Ltd is registered to our AG, John Quinn's address...............
  7. There's planning for you! Maybe could have done something about it earlier?? http://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_282115.html
  8. How many names can YOU drop in one article? http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/business/mike-s-car-centre-1-6077238
  9. Here's an idea for you, get Mike Profitt from Renewable Energy Holdings (REH) to do some consulting work for us and his company could then manage the wind-farm. What could go wrong??
  10. Suppose this means we'll be seeing Campbell's posters plastered everywhere now then! Take the hint ffs!

    Curphey owns a few betting shops on the island, two of them own Jaks and one owns a golf shop........more great publicity for our little island.
  12. Anyone who isn't on the council or 'in bed' with them? I saw George Campbell there when I walked pass - he's not on the council. Not so strange as a little sideline of his is a PA company which, shock!, was running the entertainment at yet another Douglas Council event! Now, call me cynical, if you will, but I don't recall seeing any invites for tender to provide the staging, lighting and PA system for this one either.
  13. http://www.isleofman.com/News/details/55820/no-new-rules-needed-social-care-minister- Unless you're a Ramsey MHK that is.................
  14. Heard on the grapevine that Arriva are in the process of having an office suite refurbished just off Athol Street..........putting two and two together.......
  15. Well I never: http://www.isleofman.com/News/details/55393/george-campbell-to-stand-in-douglas-council-by-election Here we go again! Imagine the bar bill if he gets in, already seems to be VIP at every council event going.
