  1. Interesting interim replacement. Is it true that his son in now also Alf's Private Secretary ? Cant beat jobs for the boys.
  2. FWIW I’m not disputing that the airport is an utter shambles and I quite agree with you. More that there is a better solution which they will inevitably through more money at. The carpark at Ronaldsway is genuine anarchy, they couldn’t make it worse if they tried.
  3. Gatwick have been trialling a new scanner where all goes through in the bag without separation. It was much better than the normal lines. We can all moan on here when the gov spank millions on them.
  4. Could always leave the building to collapse and close the road entirely. Basically happened with Balcony house years ago.
  5. How she was ever seen as a good option, I will never understand.
  6. True. All the custard goods are a low brow delight.
  7. Sure you are probably aware but you can now do gatwick to central London contactless and all the accessible gates *should be equipped. So no real need to pre book
  8. Given he copied hie missive to all staff, Im surprised the full version hasn't surfaced yet.
  9. Last nights easyJet flight from Gatwick got put in a holding pattern. Captain said it was due to the fact IOM had no available ATC staff and they had to wait for someone to come on shift. To be fair it was only for a few minutes but seemed very strange. Dr Al was on the flight so might do something about it. The car park is complete chaos, people parked across junctions, in flowerbeds all along the roadways that would have double yellows on if they were capable of maintaining them.
  10. Had a walk around Port Erin today. The DOI brought a uk firm over to blast off all the double yellow lines over the summer, but they haven’t gone back in, leading to camper vans and other dumped parked on blind bends / junctions on way up to Breagle Glen. It pretty much sums up the DOI, why would you engage a contractor to remove regulatory lining when you don’t have any plan whatsoever to put it back. if they cant even organise a bit of paint or no waiting cones, good luck with the airport.
  11. It would be easier if Onchan accepted it was part of Douglas and all could move along with life.
  12. While I hate to agree with Tony Brown, the issue is that the planners refused the application twice and the committee told DOI to talk to the Commissioners. Longworth wasn’t keen on this so ignored all the feedback and took it to appeal.
  13. I was wondering how firing wads of burning chemicals in the air , noisey or not reconciles with their stance as a Biosphere partner. Textbook marketing spin 🤔
  14. If only one of the sad faced Rushen mhks had a retail unit three doors down that that could house the service in.
