  1. As the Island is so small, you have to wonder why we need local authorities, in addition to central government.

    Getting rid of the local authorities would solve the problem. It would also solve the housing waiting list problem, the sacking of the town clerks problem, and a great many other problems as well.

  2. I have just been reading an article about the British Racing Drivers Club. They describe themselves as "the most exclusive club in motor racing". They also "own and operate the Silverstone Circuit".

    Now I have no problem whatsoever, with a bunch of enthusiasts who form a club, buy some land, and build a racing circuit. Good luck to them. It is their circuit, and they can do what they like with it.

    I do have a problem with half-witted politicians closing roads, causing immense inconvenience, almost certain deaths, and all in the name of the public who elected them.

    The TT course is owned by the public. If people wish to race motor bikes, then they should follow the example of the BRDC, and form a club to build their own circuit. They could then call themselves 'the most exclusive club in motor cycle racing'.

    The TT circuit is ours, to use whenever we wish.

    Merry Christmas

  3. Almost every thread on MF gets derailed by the congenitally stupid. So I thought that I would start them a thread all of their own.

    Here they can abuse each other as much as they like. There are no rules. They can be as vulgar and as obnoxious as they like.

    I do hope that those who appear to have sufficient fingers to be able to count their brain cells, enjoy this thread.

     

  4. There are several references to Gatwick in this thread. Having seen how easily Gatwick was brought to a complete halt for many hours, by an idiot with a drone; it really does make you wonder how prepared Ronaldsway are, to deal with such an incident.

     

  5. The important words in Rob Callister's post are "the … profit goes straight back into the event - therefore reducing the Manx taxpayers contribution".

    So please don't start telling us that the TT makes a profit. It clearly doesn't. The Manx taxpayers have to subsidise it.

    The TT is a barbaric anachronism in this day and age. The time has come for the government to stop spending taxpayers money on promoting the annual Festival of Death.

  6. What a sad indictment of the times that we live in - The Cathedral has had to install CCTV to try and combat the frequent attacks by vandals.

    It never used to be like this in the days of the birch.

     

  7. I see that in section 210 of the proposed bill, it is intended to allow pardons for those who have previously been convicted of sodomy.

    Clearly public opinion has changed, and many people are now willing to tolerate sodomy as 'normal' behaviour. As a result, people are no longer being convicted when they have engaged in sodomy with another person.

    The fact that public opinion has changed, does not make this right.

    When these people were convicted, the law was quite clear, and they decided to break it. Those who were convicted were criminals, and were quite rightly punished.

    I trust that members of MF will be lobbying their MHKs to get the idea of granting pardons for historic convictions, dropped from this proposed bill.

  8. I am not a hypocrite. As many on this forum will testify, I am just as bothered about those who have been born. Especially if they choose to ride in the TT races!

    You ask "what am I prepared to do about it"? Well I'm sorry, but I do not understand the question. What is this 'IT' that you want me to do something about?

     

  9. Much of this discussion about when a life becomes viable is quite irrelevant to the real issue. A deliberate smokescreen perhaps?

    Babies tend to be aborted when they are several months old.

    I'm not sure what the limit is now, but let's say for the sake of argument, that an abortion can take place up to 24 weeks.

    Everyone seems to agree that after 24 weeks abortion should not be allowed.

    The pro-abortionists need to consider what state the foetus is in at 23 weeks and 6 days. I for one doubt that it is possible to tell the difference between a foetus that is 23 weeks and 6 days old, and one that is 24 weeks old. Despite this, there are many people who would happily kill one, and protect the other.

    It doesn't matter what time period you choose, the same argument will apply.

    The only way to be sure that you are not killing babies, is to outlaw abortion.
