  1. Well, credit where credit's due; at least you know you're a dick and had the decency to apologise.
  2. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/breaking-new-council-of-ministers-revealed/ Ashford is treasury minister!
  3. New boys? New boys??? Let's hope this time around it's new boys and girls, rather than just a new old boys club. Although I would prefer new men and women. Semantics I know, but I get fed up with grown women constantly being referred to as girls, much more often than men are referred to as boys. It's one of my pet peeves.
  4. Been hearing that too. Teachers and students both taking it home to family.
  5. Meant to add... I would have thought he already had his ministers lined up in his head before the CM election took place. It doesn't normally take this long, does it?
  6. I was just thinking earlier that if he doesn't announce his ministers etc by tomorrow (Friday) morning, then perhaps people aren't as willing/happy to work with him as claimed.
  7. I agree with Sid. I thought the same when I heard the number in hospital had risen again. It's been rising daily this week and with 533 active cases (that we know about) it's going to continue to rise.
  8. I have my bin at the front of my house because I got sick of my neighbours filling the damn thing every week. I only produce one or two bags a week and it's a bit ridiculous when I can't fit them in my bin. Where I live if the bin is the slightest bit open, the seagulls have a field day and make a huge mess - to which I'm unwilling to contribute. And no, I can't put the bin in the back garden. It has to live outside my back gate because it won't fit through and there's nothing I can do about it (I rent). I'm not a huge fan of having it in front of the house, but it beats having nowhere to put my rubbish.
  9. No, that funny shaped building whence the morning boat departs.
  10. Wasn't the impression I ever got from her, and I guess I missed her advance indication of intent that Joe speaks of on the previous page.
  11. Thank you. Apologies to everyone for getting Watterson wrong. In my defence, my tinnitus is off the charts today.
  12. I was surprised when KLB seconded Barber's Cannan nomination. I never thought she'd support a Tory.
  13. Yes I was thinking I was sure "and Mr Speaker" was said when giving Allinson's votes, but the at the end Moss said by process of elimination it was Watterson and Wannenburgh.
  14. Maybe because the latest envelope opening was of one marked "PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL".
  15. Watterson and Wannenburgh.
  16. The vote: Allison 8 Cannan 14 Spoiled 2 Deputy Speaker: Caine 14 Christian 10
  17. Bashing the Bishop is a time-honoured Manx Forums pastime, regardless of thread topic.
  18. Not only that, but he's shown us again and again that he doesn't have much respect for women in general. He's not even good looking and has no dress sense. I can't for the life of me imagine what the attraction could be. I'm surprised he ever managed to find a wife, let alone an alleged lover. Blows my mind.
  19. Regardless of which side of the argument you happen to be on regarding covid vax for kids, what these protesters are doing is abhorrent. They claim to want to protect children but what they're doing is terrorising them. In one of the clips a little boy has his hands clamped over his ears, and is clearly frightened as are most of the little ones. If shouting and screaming, accusing parents of raping and abusing their children in front of young primary school aged kids isn't terroristic, I don't fucking know what is.
  20. Think you've left nearly £14,000 off that. MLC pay is £63,776. It's a lot to miss off when you consider people on incapacity topped up with SI only get around £11-12,000pa.
  21. Same here in February 2020. I didn't have the Flatley effect but did have fever, cough, headache, fatigue etc... a very bad flu. The fatigue lasted over a month and had a cough for 14 months. I'd two clients over in early feb. They'd recently travelled together through several Far-East locations. One had a "headcold". Didn't really think anything of it at the time. Cursed him when I came down with it a few days after they left. Also know someone who was very ill with respiratory issues in January 2020 and was in hospital with it for a few days. He managed to get tested for covid-19 antibodies not long after the tests came out (early summer?) and he tested positive.
  22. Too many willing amateurs here. Even during TT; the competition for fresh meat amongst the amateurs is fierce. Or so I hear.
  23. An extra £10,000 isn't bad.
