  1. The wait in A&E could be due to the closed wards and lack of beds as well. The public will only be told what manx care want to tell them. Uk is worse like you say but still it shouldn’t be happening. An elderly person had a fall on ward 4 on Wednesday, you have to wonder how many times is that happening, staff are running around, they don’t stop and they look really worn out. It can’t be healthy for them either.
  2. Well I was up at the hospital yesterday and nursing staff are not very happy with Manx Care and according to some, many are leaving or have left as they just don’t want to work for them any more. Three wards are shut and the bed situation is dreadful. Mostly filled with elderly where each department have waiting lists and they are not able to give the care they were trained in. Wednesday on gyno ward there were only three lady patients that needed that ward the rest of the ward was filled with elderly. Their waiting list is long but they just haven’t got the beds. Food the vegetables are black, potatoes look like they have been left out in the air after peeling them, I’m unsure how the same happens with carrots as they look frozen not fresh. Taxes are paying for these services who ever is doing the food want to be ashamed and how are they getting away with it? The staff look warn out . The place needs investigating.
  3. I think it’s more funny that the police seem to spend more time on Facebook than stupid comments about parking 😂
  4. What you mean is. Douglas corpy are like someone wearing Gucci but can’t afford to put a pair of knickers on. The town is dirty and falling apart. If any business uses their imagination and puts a couple of tables and chairs outside for customers . Douglas Corporation shoot it down without a second thought. Douglas Corporation in one hand started a half hearted attempt of helping the climate by recycling ( seeing as doing something) but provided no real resources to accomplish it and put on a half an hour show that ended in a puff of smoke and thinks what a great corporation we are.
  5. Life shouldn’t be all about money, cashing in and greed.
  6. Security manager has left or pushed out at the airport and a government employee has taken over. Something iffy is going on. How much will it cost the tax payer?
  7. Growing up you got adverts telling you to bin it. You spend your childrens childhood telling them to bin it. Douglas corporation do the opposite and cut the bins down. How backwards is that? But I did hear the once volunteers, beach buddies now get paid by government to pick up litter, over time will be great. I wonder if it’s friends of a friend involvement. Something Isn’t adding up.
  8. Why don’t they just do what the cats and dogs do in the schools? It will save on toilet roll.
  9. Think of the money they are saving adding the extra day off school so the important people can go on their jollies. The least they can do is spend it on some veg and give it the most vulnerable.
  10. Yes I know gay couples can adopt but I’m sure they need to have a place to live first, and I’m sure it takes a bit longer than getting pregnant. Adoption can take years. i thought first time buyers was for people who couldn’t afford a house on their own and the government gave out a loan to get them on the property ladder. Like a person could in a well paid job. I didn’t realise it was just for people with children. Unless of course you want a flat / apartment with management fees and no garden.
  11. Why should women have to be knocked up to get one? Cash in the hand. Wil solve that problem. Lots of people do it on the island especially in take away businesses.
  12. If anyone wants a house a woman has to give birth.
  13. Hopefully it has changed for the better, as only flats/apartments were offered to single and same sex couples without children. Man made rules as they can’t or don’t have or give birth.
  14. A couple with a child goes straight up the list. Unless it has changed in the last 6 months.,
  15. Your not getting people suggesting to get a second job, whist there at home warming their arses. im a bit old school about starting families. Surely you get your home first and settled before having children . Not knock up the Mrs, so I get to sit in my comfy arm chair. I’m sure you need a home to adopt a child first too. But I’m sure you will know better.
  16. You have to be very careful on the island, there is so much negativity between people. I’ve seen comments on here and other sites. Where they’re blaming people on benefits . Who’s fault is it that so many are claiming? If you are waiting for the mental health service or hospital consultants, what are people supposed to do? GPS seem to dish out tablets to mask every problem. That has to be the biggest cost to the health service. I’m sure a lot of that medication, it will state do not drive do not work with machinery with a lot of other side effects and who signs people off work, and how many times is a person assessed and how long are they having to wait? so many things wrong with the island and it’s getting worse every passing year. Whilst someone else gets the blame. Let the person who come up with idea to get a second job crack on and get one. If they don’t need the money maybe they can give it to charity or the food bank. whilst here who’s idea was it to but the rule in the first time buyers program, that couples with children get put up the list and will get a property first , that’s a very bad discrimination against same sex couples, single or people who can not have children . Also a bit like the hand maids where women need to get knocked up. I’m sure it was the same to get a council house at one time .The island is very backward . I wonder how many MHKs congratulated the tax dodger in the UK ? I can see weed being legalised very soon, getting everyone stoned so they have no clue what they are up too.
  17. I wonder if they are going to ask employers that when offering these jobs they are including sick pay and private healthcare. As you’ve got no chance of any medical care if needed straight away, if you become sick working all those hours.
  18. That’s for a different story😁
  19. Haha you have never been in then. It’s full of office workers.
  20. Can they not get rid of Manx Radio and put the money towards health care. Why are tax’s going towards a radio station. Who’s life is it saving by doing so? They don’t half post some shit.
  21. High schools were not health conscious a year ago sausage rolls sausage baps chips cheese gravy, chocolate bars crisps. so unsure what food they serve in primary schools now. Supermarkets corner shops are all selling shite in them. I’ve been to Tesco before and the lemons were not vegan so god knows what’s been sprayed on fruit and vegetables.plus if both parents work till after 5pm, children are probably not getting to eat an evening meal until 6.30pm that will be lying on their stomach going to bed depending their age.There are a lot of take alway businesses and more and more food joints pop up. Maybe if there were more shops selling clothes people would care more about themselves . What’s down strand street peacocks next and m&s and 50 coffee shops.
  22. I’ve heard not sure how much is true, but I’m sure it will make a few people angry in social housing of it is. That the new peel road apartments have been provided with carpet heating and washing machines ect , for not very much difference in rent, to their other properties that don’t offer the same. As I’m sure a lot of people would rather have an extra £10 or £20 a week to pay on rent than gas and electric bills. Heating is mixture of electric and solar.
  23. It’s like explaining to a wall. They’re best ignored. I wouldn’t be surprised if they didn’t use gas and are using oil or have wood burners themselves.
  24. Most of the rubbish in bins have been made by the private sector. It’s doesn’t mean it has to all go in a bin though. I thought we were making smart changes. it is wrong to think it’s ok to use it because someone else has paid for it. you either want to make a change or not, half in doesn’t cut it.
