  1. '...and if you need a friend, get a dog.' Gordon Gekko
  2. If he's sleeping with two prostitutes, sure it's her business, but it's none of our business and snorting coke is definitely not.
  3. A law of the land which is completely unjust and should be thrown out. If two people want to snort cocaine, let 'em. What business is it of anybody else's?
  4. It's because most are anything but that so many Pakistani (happy?) men abuse so many of our children. That's terrifying. Can you provide a link to the stories about children in the Isle of Man ('our' children) being abused by Pakistani men please? You overlook where I live, the mainland. It does happen here on the Isle of Man.
  5. Or they just made a mistake. I forgot this was Manx Forums and everybody is perfect here.
  6. (posted after spotting this article http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jul/21/giving-up-beef-reduce-carbon-footprint-more-than-cars?CMP=share_btn_fb on IOM Friends of the Earth page on Facebook)
  7. I must admit, I find the idea that humans could cause these global environmental changes laughable. Is it based on science or political ideology?
  8. I just feel sorry for the individual if they made a mistake. Criticise the government, yes, but I don't like people getting into trouble.......
  9. Everybody makes mistakes. Get over it.
  10. I couldn't think of a better guest of honour for the Special Olympics! Well.......
  11. "many of the sectors which have been completely neglected" Such as?
  12. I like Bach because he does good music. Or did. Haven't seen many new albums from him lately.
  13. I'll be your friend, Albert
  14. Are we paying for his trip? If not, I don't give two hoots.
  15. The Isle of Man is hardly a secretive jurisdiction like Switzerland. Money laundering is against the law here. We have prosecuted cases of it. We have very good disclosure relations with HMRC. If UK businesses are able to engage in money laundering through the Isle of Man, I think that's very rare and is sussed out. We have very strict regulations. I don't see how it could happen except in isolated cases which have managed to slip through the cracks. If I lived in London and wanted to laudner money, opening accounts in the Isle of Man would be one of the last things I'd do. If I was smart. There are easier, less detectable methods. Why do we keep switching topic from low tax to money laundering. Avoiding tax is not money laundering. They're not morally equivalent.
