  1. Going to watch with interest as to what the powers that be's response is going to be . DOI once again it seems have excelled themselves .
  2. HM Sole doing his electioneering in 1886 last night with his 20 y old (if that) hangers on complete with rosette and helium balloon tied to his trousers. I suppose its different angle to granny farming .
  3. Yes agree. And some Emu's to keep the Wallabies company , few prides of Lions to get on top of the said Wallabies. Badgers getting a hard time in UK so maybe a conservation area in Foxdale ! for a few hundred . Maybe a herd of Elephants to help with the infrastruture works on the prom. Save on Diesel and if short of horses multi use . Win win . We have plenty of Amoeba's employed in public sector so pass on them .
  4. https://hr.gov.im/media/1168/vexpolfinal.pdf widely accepted to try and reign in TC's constant complaining
  5. Very much doubt it. Hes pig headed and very rarely wrong . They hate him as hes a thorn in there side . Remember the vexatious complaint they dreamt up to try and quiet him .
  6. He's put in petitions at at least 3 Tynwald days and as he is more than a stickler for detail my guess he's been shafted by Phillips . I find it very hard to see how TC would have got it wrong.. For gods sake if you miss a comma out on correspondence he would be on your case .
  7. I posted the same months ago. Read back in this topic. Concept plan but never detailed plans hence the jumping around to keep contractors busy till they produced some plans. Loads of cockups too along the way. And the poster above who states issues with services . Sea side theres hardly any and none that would cause a issue . No the problem is DOI and winging it and management being totally out of there depth .
  8. Bollocks , theres loads of people out there that would put him out to dry if they had anything on him . He wasnt popular for sure for obvious reasons but for sure anything would have come out before now, The only biggy I knew about was the alleged Gubay assault and that didnt go anywhere despite Gubay's money and lawyers
  9. Really ? A later one from Ramsey to Douglas than 12 10 am ? Didnt know that .
  10. I believe another gripe the Taxi drivers have is the soon to be starting , this weekend I think , late bus from all destinations at gone 1 am . The night owl has been around 10 past midnight but now a even later one . I think Ramsey to Douglas say full fare is around £7.00 . A friend though reckons they will stuggle to get drivers as it means getting home at 2 30 ish .
  11. My psychiatrist was from portugal so definately foreign but was lovely but sadly went back to UK due in main the difficulties in getting back to Portugal to see family etc . I didnt mind where they came from as tbh along as they cared . Lots of mental health staff working here leave alot to be desired . Crisis Team included sadly. Take the Meds and sign you off. Bye . Some CMHS team also as bad if they even turn up to appointment or dont cancel
  12. Anybody seen the traffic lights top end of Victoria Road about 20 metres or so from halt sign . Going to cause a big backlog tomorrow I'd say .
  13. The hard core CS. will tie him in knots . Better men than him have tried to sort that outfit out and failed miserably .
  14. I've seen a figure banded about that it costs around 4 K to stand in the elections . Would this be realistic ? . If so I cant see Kevin Oliphant Smith managing that.
  15. Apparently DC wanted a reduction it what they pay to government and they said no. Income had reduced so they said take them back then.
  16. He has . I came across him playing basketball at NSC in at least prior to 2015
  17. Totally agree sadly as in many ways the real effects of Covid 19 is still to be felt. Finacially , mentally and physically is going to really bite later this year .
  18. Numbnuts


    I would agree with this. I pointed out a particular issue to do with the Prom debacable to a couple of members directoy and indireactly involved in DOI and neither knew about these before I brought them up. Despite they being on the My Prom website . Both asked could I forward the link to them. Just incredible really .
  19. No your totally correct . But it has to be done as whats happening now cant carry on. Firstly we cant afford it and secondly we need to bring some credibility back to that department . Someone has to try ..
  20. Nooooo not who I'm thinking !!!???? Rumoured to play pool in spare time ???!
  21. Agree re DOI. Also they have the sea wall to build also down there for 500.000 so theres another overspend too .. thats supposed to have started by now
  22. Everyone see's the issue except it would seem CM and his merrymen ! You know if someone grew some balls and once and for all sorted DOI they could write their ticket but me thinks it needs Chief Secretary onside and there I feel lies the problem .
  23. I actually think the 1.3 million is money well spent providing that ammount can be justified . It can only encourage more off road walking and cycling etc which is a good thing for so many reasons. Pity they got rid of them in the first place .Imagine if the railways bridge was still there at Glen . How cool would that be to walk along
  24. Guess it would be too much to ask for Quayle to get his fat ass into gear and deal with this ongoing issue with incompetence in DOI before the election next year . Its not going away anytime soon unless someone gets a grip. The world and its wife knows management are usless in that department led from the top by top failure Nick Black. Quayle for once in your life do something right and sort it for the new incumbents of Tynwald . I'm not holding my breath that he will though as they seem bullet proof in there .
  25. I've explained this before Derek. From a friend working for a firm who is responsible for lots of services , not Auldyn etc , while they had a concept plan from day one ie what the finished job would look like they didnt have detail plans for contractors to be able to work too. So because of this it was literally a day to day operation to keep the contractors occupied till infrastructure plans were issued. Hence what we saw early in with the jumping of work areas and from a initial plan of work being abandoned and no structure to works. Also hence why there was very few men on the job. Been a mess from day one . Clearly it shoukd have moved progressivly along the prom from one direction and one side at a time. Now we are left with a clusterfuck and total carnage . DOI ! ! Most in the know knew this woukd be a disaster .
