    Stay out of 'our' City then!!!! Get back to your own district and do your weekly shop in the Andreas corner shop!!!

    It's probably you 'out of towners' that cause the long queues in 'our' Tesco? Should be higher prices for you lot!

    You come into our City with your mud covered Lada doing 18mph everywhere running over cyclists because you've never seen a lycra covered bum before!

    50k people from Dlas and 'suburbs' contribute to Dlas rates, shopping, commuting to work and seeking entertainment, we don't need you Govvags?

    Get back to your own district!!!


    Tongue in cheek?   Maybe?

    Fine by me!

    I go into Douglas maybe three or four times a year, to go to the dentist or visit a government department. When there I might do a bit of shopping, which contributes to "your" rates. I take the bus, thereby not contributing to "your" abysmal parking problem.

    You can have Douglas; just don't combine my functional local government with your dysfunctional shit-show. No thank you!

    I get patted down. The swab tests done. And my chair subject to intense inspection. Every  trip.

    Unconscious Disability discrimination? Or Justified.

    If there is identical behaviour at all airports, they are working to a common standard.

    Or maybe the common standard to which they are working is rooted in unconscious disability discrimination?

    Did you fill in and leave the feedback form? It will be interesting to see what happens to those. 

    Well that's a no-brainer; they'll go into cardboard boxes and sent off to Ashford and his industrial strength shredder.

  4. I'm sure I read somewhere that select Ukrainian troops are going to where the tanks currently are for training on operation and maintenance.

    I read far too many sources to be able to pinpoint where I saw this, so I can't provide a link. Sorry.

    all aboard the gravy train.

    what exactly do you achieve for you large salary apart from undermining your staff on Manx forums?

    still bonkers 

    Why is 10-12 quid for a reusable water bottle bonkers? With plastic bottles of water costing up to £2 each, it would pay for itself in no time. I have several reusable bottles and haven't had to buy a bottle of water in years. 

    When you think about it, what's REALLY bonkers is buying water that you can get out of your tap for free. Many establishments will refill your reusable bottle for free as well. 

    I shake my head when I see people at shopshite or Tescos with big plastic-wrapped bundles of plastic bottles of water in their carts when Manx water is so good - better than the crap they're paying a fortune for.

    I don't know why they  cant introduce a bonus fine for leaving the road on the mountain  while driving like a lunatic  at the very least it might deter some of the crackpots , I cam over there today  and cant believe how fast some drivers were going and in places water still running across  the road in some areas , dead easy to aquaplane loose the front end , 

    It won't deter the crackpots one iota as the crackpots think their driving is perfect and so they'll NEVER come off the road.

    It would be interesting to know how many empty social houses there are across island, I would imagine at least 120/30.

    An elderly relative moved out of a 3 bedroom house in port Erin , 9 months ago it was in excellent state with fairly new carpets, blinds etc so someone could have moved in. It’s still empty as is the one next door which has been empty for 15 months!!

    I know of at least 6 others in port Erin all empty for at least 6 months. Eventually they will get round to ripping everything out because of health & safety & rent them as shells but the amount of perfectly good social housing is scandalous 

    Sounds like a Port Erin problem. Here in Peel the turn-around time frame is usually around 2-4 weeks.

    And some pre polling opportunities too. All currently the way elections are run in Australia (and NZ I think)

    The first I'd ever heard of compulsory voting was from a friend in Australia (RIP). He was pretty scathing about countries that didn't have it... or more to the point,  scathing about people who constantly moaned about their politicians but refused to vote. He reckoned CV at least got rid of those who moaned but refused vote.

    Moaning non-voters piss me off too.

  10. I watch him every night as well, usually with my fingers crossed that he has good news. 

    Can you give the other guys' Insta names so I can check them out? Thanks.
