  1. I hear tell the DED are busy throwing the legal kitchen sink at another local firm who ran the official website and timing systems for years. I think there may be a few more skeletons about to emerge from Mr Skellys cupboard.
  2. Plenty of evidence online that there is no health and safety culture at the place either based on Menzies staff use of social media.
  3. No expense spared on the camera.
  4. You had best raise your concerns with the mayor of London too.
  5. The latest wheeze is all the outsourced staff get a parking permit for their hours then get free holiday parking. Almost 500 parking permits issued to the airport clique - https://iom.icasework.com/servlet/servlets.getImg?ref=D290265&bin=Y&auth=0&db=ZVD1ZPdIGvo%3D&access_token=DHcfVG3QM4yrh6VvfszsuZx9uH9hdPkIRPALELP7wol9sMIuuoWn7FGGwRQRDJuf.Eq0CpjLJEpBNvfeMr6IqOg%3D%3D
  6. Public lynching underway on Facebook. How dare they close the parking.
  7. As a resident of Port Erin, unless you need to go to Shoprite, Castletown is much easier to find parking. Even if all the free parking has gone, there is massive carpark behind shop rite that costs 25p per half hour. Fuel costs are more than a couple of hours parking. The biggest issue is that the square flip flops open / closed so often people forget what its like and the moaners get airtime several times a year no matter what side of the fence they sit on.
  8. I hear tell that the Manager brought in from the UK to head the revamped "flagship" George in Castletown has gone back to the UK, only to be replaced by one of the Chefs responsible for the dire food that has been dished up since the relaunch. Couldn't make it up.
  9. Government will have set the hares running with their provision review. Doesn't make any sense that the "chosen" family library receives central gov funding when the HBN library down the road is on the shoulders of ratepayers. Libraries these days seem more of a social drop in centre, or wifi hub than the traditional library. Books simply aren't the luxury item they once, even charity shops wont take them half the time.
  10. Provisional License's are only valid in the country of issue so she would need one of each. ETA https://www.energyfm.net/cms/news_story_543766.html
  11. It appears the local franchise is being broken up and Douglas stores have been sold. Sunk by an over enthusiastic expansion plan into Glasgow
  12. Coffee Republic seems to have closed rather suddenly and quietly this morning....

    I understand that Mr Pullinger has written to CWU members on the Isle of Man advising them to "Pick a side" in advance of a urgent union meeting.Watch this space but it looks like an IOM Post implosion is on its way.
  14. Ex Head Brewer Mike Cowbourne is whipping up a storm on Twitter to the effect all the brewing staff have resigned to the effect he states... “Indeed a doubt the Brewery side of H+B. ie Okells will survive, everybody get used to drinking imported beer, so sad in existence since 1850” Seems to be a very undignified end. The brewing was the one saving grace to the increasingly bland pub offering. Always frustrating that the H&B pub estate in the U.K. seems to be run to a higher standard.
  15. I have heard a claim from source at airport that all easyJet flights were cancelled as the steps supplied by Ronaldsway are not rated for high winds, thus not allowed near aircraft as opposed to aircraft tolerances. Might have thought that winds were a factor in choosing steps for an airport in the middle of Irish Sea.
