  1. Hitler fluoridated the water in concentration camps, so he wasn't all bad.
  2. Scientists did study of 98 per cent of GP practices in England found that high rates of underactive thyroid were 30 per cent more likely in areas of the greatest fluoridation. It could mean that up to 15,000 people are suffering needlessly from thyroid problems which can cause depression, weight gain, fatigue and aching muscles.
  3. Just reading those headlines the words I highlighted stand out... Yes they used the words "may" and "could", as hypothyroidism is 30 per cent higher than expected, so its not 100 per cent.
  4. "Is your tap water poisoning you? The troubling question on everyone's lips as scientists warn fluoride put in water to protect teeth could spark depression." http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2967791/Is-tap-water-poisoning-troubling-question-s-lips-scientists-war-fluoride-water-protect-teeth-spark-depression.html "Fluoride in drinking water may trigger depression and weight gain, warn scientists." http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11430087/Fluoride-in-drinking-water-may-trigger-depression-and-weight-gain-warn-scientists.html
  5. We don't need a TV Tax, anyone who wants the BBC can pay for it like Sky or BT Sport.
  6. Isn't it time that publicans are limited to how much Alcohol they can serve each customer. "About half of all arrests on the Isle of Man involve alcohol, the island's chief constable has revealed": http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/31518000#sa-ns_mchannel
  7. Time to break the Manx Gas monopoly.
  8. BBC spends £7m on consultants in year ending March 2014: http://www.theguardian.com/media/2015/feb/16/bbc-spends-7m-on-consultants-year-ending-march-2014
  9. BBC scum refuse to say what the 7 million on consultants in a year, they did to earn the money. Just another example of the contempt the BBC have for the "TV License Tax" payers. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2956295/BBC-blows-nearly-7m-consultants-year-refuses-say-did-money.html
  10. People in the island are being asked to support moves to establish a Manx credit union. A credit union is a member-owned financial cooperative, controlled by its members, and operated for the purpose of promoting thrift, providing credit at competitive rates, and providing other financial services to its members.The Financial Supervision Commission is seeking views ahead of the draft of a new Credit Union Bill, in particular looking at the regulations which should apply to credit unions. http://www.iomtoday.co.im/people-urged-to-show-their-support-for-credit-union-1-7103237

  12. Ben-my-Chree needs a web cam for it's propeller's.
  13. "Steam Packet CEO Mark Woodward updates the situation as the Ben-my-Chree finally docks at 10pm after losing engines in Douglas harbour."

  14. About time! "Liberal Vannin MHK Peter Karran has called for a Public Accounts Committee investigation into the upgrade of the Tetra emergency communications system. Tynwald voted in November to approved spending just under £5m on a replacement system. This was despite a letter being circulated just before the debate from a rival bidder that claimed it could have delivered the upgrade to Tetra at half the cost. In his letter to PAC chairman Alfred Cannan MHK, Mr Karran said: As a former member of the Department of Home Affairs I do feel there is a need for a full investigation into the procurement and value for money aspect as far as this issue is concerned. I hope that the Public Accounts Committee will carry out a thorough investigation. The investigation should be carried out as to whether it was premature and whether a more effective way could have been employed to resolve the issue in order that the taxpayer has not been short changed by this issue just being nodded through by Tynwald. Tetra is used by the islands emergency services, including the police, as well as Civil Defence personnel and marshals during the TT, Manx Grand Prix and Classic TT. Home Affairs Minister Juan Watterson told Tynwald in November that the upgrade and replacement was needed as the system had reached the end of its life and maintenance and support contracts could not be extended." http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/isle-of-man-news/call-for-probe-into-spending-5m-on-tetra-upgrade-1-7101585
