  1. I am amazed they spent so little
  2. Are you seriously suggesting they put Ramsey post office back into Ramsey courthouse? How would that save money?
  3. An MHK talking sense. I better lie down. The shock is too much....
  4. Just follow the link, but here it is... I’ve just seen this report from the economic policy review committee - they only took evidence from the Post Office, so it’s unsurprising their recommendations are particularly one sided! Hoping Tynwald take the sensible route on this one - more monopolies surely isn’t healthy
  5. They already have a 5 year strategy: https://www.iompost.com/about/five-year-strategy/ Quote: "IOMPO wants to remain self-funding and does not want to be subsidised by the taxpayer, taking resources from other vital services." Giving them a monopoly for another class of delivery (in addition to letters) is an indirect subsidy that will be paid by local residents. As their strategy states "The cost of IOMPO's pension scheme is also increasing and is not sustainable in its current form and therefore needs to be addressed." They need to fix this if they are to be the sust
  6. Testing more people would provide more information about the prevalence of the virus in the general population. More information would allow the government to make better informed decisions.
  7. An average of about 62 per day or 31% of testing capacity. We could be testing 3 times more people with current capacity.
  8. They are getting ready for the TT. The fact it is not happening is irrelevant.
  9. Rubbish. Not even correct in the case of Manx Radio since part of their income comes from adverts.
  10. Cancelled for no good reason? Do you really think a claim that it was cancelled for no good reason would succeed?
  11. Why did the Director of Ports say earlier this morning that: http://www.manxradio.com/newsread.aspx?id=69350 It seems to be a bit odd to suggest things are still being considered when permission is then denied a few hours later.
  12. Good news possibly: http://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/isle-of-man-news/london-city-booking-delay-result-of-news-leak-1-6369647 Bit surprising BA say the news was leaked given Cretney said he was making the announcement with their permission.
  13. Roger, Thank you for looking up and posting Cretney's annoucement. One month later with no obvious progress, his choice of words is interesting. Why did he say they "intend" to increase the service? Why could he have not said they "will" increase the service? A natural interpretation is that BA have not committed to the increase and all they have given is a non-binding indication that they could do it subject to details to be agreed.
  14. I have just tried booking some flights to/from London City in April and BA's websit is still only offering one flight per day. Does anyone know when the new schedule of flights will be released? Has anyone seen an annoucement from BA confirming that the service will be increased to the promised three flights per day? It seems odd that BA have not put flights on sale yet. Do they not want our money?
