  1. Sorry to ask but cant find a link to what he said..you have one ? Or anyone else have please ??
  2. The reasoning if this is true needs to be looked at but we know it wont ! Another great purchase . Its over 10 years now since first mooted !
  3. But is it working as it was meant to do now ? I believe its not as theres a triangular requirment and as thete is no more similar it cant happen . Happy to be proved wrong
  4. Yes i'd heard that too. Well a friend who used to work down there seems to think its not functioning as it was meant to be. If its true says it all about our government tbh ..
  5. You forgot the Radar at airport . ! Nobody seems to know or want to say whats going on there .
  6. Like the Prom and horse trams you mean !!!
  7. This is totally correct. No kudos in fixing the absmal roads all around the Island which are getting worse by the day . But can find money for any scheme that ties up a few 'experts ' in DOI land . Has to be a project or its not worth bothering about . For gods sake will someone please get a grip of DOI and its leadership . We say it every week . I said on the eve of the last election the key to a successful new government about to be voted in was a strong and credible leader who would stand up to CS and chief Secretary . We got Quayle and millions wasted weekly .
  8. I though thats what we seem to currently have !!
  9. Power gone to HQ's head . I'm the big boss man springs to mind !
  10. Congratulations you Muppet Quayle ..Last time I looked we were a democracy but recently I've had my suspicions. This has just confirmed we haven't . This is so wrong on so many levels. Like him or loath him doesnt matter .It shouldn't be my way or the high way but clearly faceless civil servants are deciding policy and the likes. Quayle hasnt the iq to come up with anything sensible and this proves it .
  11. I agree he's useless . Something seriously needs to be done with DOI !
  12. The only voids on the Prom scheme belong in DOI management heads . We all knew it would be a disaster and enough warned but honestly , did anyone really think it would be this bad. I've been super critical but its even astounded me . Let them at the Deep water berth at your peril . Meanwhile the state of the general roads deteriorate daily , no sign of Richmond Hill being sorted and I've given up with the Radar ... Its only money , tax payers money !!
  13. I believe he has too sadly .
  14. You are totally correct and I know this for a fact after a convo with a good friend back in October who filled me in on the goings on , or not of the procedures and totally explained the piece meal work areas. No detailed plans !!! Contractors having to ask whats next and how to do various tasks. Total and utter cock up from day one . And hence why the proposed 60/70 workers on the job never materialised . Heads should roll starting with Nick Black and Johnson but you know they wont . Quayle should have got a grip of this situation from a early stage as it was clear to everyone what was happening . And the bottom line !!! The cost !!???
  15. As I mentioned before which now seems to be mentioned officially now the original plans for roundabouts have gone and also I believe the pavements around Queens Prom are now to be tarmac not granite .. Looks like so many short cuts going to be implemented sadly . And once again all discussed in a private meeting and not in Tynwald ..So much for democracy on this Island . Usual suspects keeping a low profile !
