  1. ?? Tram systen does exist just a extra route. heavier rails put in means its totally feasible to extend the route . Good idea for once
  2. Yes I agree . And it makes sense just why the secrecy !!??
  3. Also why the gap between the sets of tracks is bigger . Electric trams are a bigger unit i'd say . All coming out in the wash now !!!! Clearly the plan all along just not honest enough to admit it . Hence the rails !!
  4. God knows but they should be busy in the next few years I'd say !! That will mean another advert for increased staff because cant have the little love's having to work to hard . I believe communications has a staff of 9 and still nobody jumped on board about the airport mess last week and now straight away they advertise for another communications staff member .
  5. Really ! Deluded muppet , Majority of people have given up long ago as its been clear DOI haven't a clue from day one as suggested by most from the start. Progress was slow , yes it was why !!??? Because they didnt have the detailed plans for the contractors ready hence the jumping around and nothing done for months. Harmer said 50/60 men on the job from the start , most will agree we were lucky to see 10 . No weekend work , no sensible work plan to lessen disruption to business and seemingly a dont care attitude from everyone involved. If there isnt a clearout and a new policy regarding DOI t
  6. Heard only today that the tram rails are stopping now at or around Castle Mona Avenue and not the War Memrial as I thought . Did I pick that up wrong or was it always to be CMA? So that means thats alot of digging up of temporary infill in September 2021 ! At what cost ? I did hear also the roundabout bottom of broadway will be tarmac and again finished as plan again in 2021 . If so it would seem they have again cut back on works to be done before April 1st
  7. We have a useless CM and has been from day one ! Who remembers when Princess Anne visted and Paul Moulton asked Quayle about the Prom and he just laughed . He should of got a grip of DOI years ago and banged some heads and told the managememt to sort themselves out or heads would roll . Take the DOI out of the equation and theres not a massive lot left apart from Health maybe .
  8. Heard a story today via a MUA guy that low voltage cables havent been put in and 2 trenchs will have to be dug to accommodate them in a area that has been already finished . Not on plans which would tie in with previous stories I'd heard .
  9. Should just say. public are SUCKERS .. we get paid over the odds for this incompetence.
  10. I'd heard the same story a couple of weeks ago. Find it hard to believe but its Longworth , Black and DOI involved so I'm leaning to believe it
  11. 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 .
  12. 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 .
  13. 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 .
  14. https://hr.gov.im/media/1168/vexpolfinal.pdf widely accepted to try and reign in TC's constant complaining
  15. 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 .
  16. 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 .
  17. 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 .
  18. 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
  19. Really ? A later one from Ramsey to Douglas than 12 10 am ? Didnt know that .
  20. 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 .
  21. 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
  22. 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 .
  23. The hard core CS. will tie him in knots . Better men than him have tried to sort that outfit out and failed miserably .
  24. 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.
  25. 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.
