    I'm not pro Lib Van as such, but I am glad there is someone like Kate in Tynwald. Rather than a stuffed shirt/frock with their mouths stuffed with gold and gourmet buffets.
  2. To be fair, "we can land a man on the moon" analogies are already so passé

    Kate Beecroft is saying "the Chief Secretary is not the right person to lead an investigation into an accusation of institutional bullying against the Education Minister." Manx Radio link That is more than a fair point in the current situation with Credgie the Wedgie. Hardly grandstanding. She raised the matter of bullying back in May: Former health minister hits out at hospital bullying culture I think you are being disingenuous in your post, our sid. Can you really blame her for raising the subject.
  4. Some of them are pretty good I have to say. Some enjoy a cosy chat with the Tynwald celebrities.
  5. Ramsey was particularly hard done by when those flats were built in the 1970s. Ramsey was promised the earth and all that happened was it just got a lot shitter. In the name of greed and the money men. There are a number of factors of course but I would say any decline in Ramsey can be traced back to when the monstrosity was built. Maybe it's a case of once bitten twice shy. Which is a great shame, but I can't blame the er, pitchfork wavers.
  6. The gag is usable for any of the teams. And to be fair, with the Tynwald lot they are by definition pulling together in the direction of the 'Party by Patronage' and the establishment, and all having a jolly good time too.
  7. That may as be, but I surely know as much as he.
  8. Perhaps you should put in a petition on Tywnald Day that the Isle of Man government should declare which sire of the fence it sits on this. Because at the moment I think you are being discriminated against for your beliefs. ECHR and all that. The flat earth society has branches all around the globe, is there a branch on t'Isle of Man?
  9. Just thought I'd take the opportunity to say: I have never been in a jewellers in my life. Other than Christmas there never seems to be anyone in the shops.
  10. Can we just look at that the other way a second: So it would take as many people to run a full service radio station with 85,000 potential listeners as it does for 8,500 or 850. Or to go further and to emphasize the point...85 people.
  11. Well there is plenty more where this has has come from. The Chief Minister and his Council of Ministers have found someone who has more than a couple of brain cells to rub together and he is being given the shit sticks to try and clean and then shake at the plebs.
  12. The Government's very own PR/spin doctor.
  13. I have to say, I have been using 3fm a lot more for their local news coverage. I think some bods up at Manx Radio are developing civilservantitis
  14. I think Mr Thomas is a bit of a menace. In our little democracy I have not come across anyone at all who desires population growth and green fields built upon. I haven't spoken to builders yet.
  15. That seems a lot for such an organisation. Very IoM Governmentesque.

    TT 2018

    You're making yourself look a bit of a silly billy now. You're just belly farting onto the keyboard. You're not making a point or offering a contribution or giving a measured opinion.

    TT 2018

    I don't have the facilities to check right now but I understand that for many years (up until 2007?) the only spectator/non-racer killed during races at the TT was a policeman.

    TT 2018

    Who gave the car rider the instruction?
  19. There's more to Howard than that. Before becoming a politician his claim to fame was an article in Isle of Man newspapers for playing a violin to keep his cows happy (..walk, fart, chew gum and play violin)

    TT 2018

    Someone should have told the deemster. He's gone away to have a jolly good think about that very matter.

    TT 2018

    It's a mighty thing to take a car around the TT Course on closed roads. Is it blanket covered by ACU insurance? Can anyone have a go or do you need to be, like, in authority or something. I'm quite a good driver and I like going fast.
