  1. I think its skewed as is you have a child who spends time between separated parents then if either party is in receipt of benefits they become eligible irrespective of the other sides income.
  2. Lorne House currently under offer on the agents website https://www.blackgracecowley.com/property/lorne-house-douglas-street-castletown/
  3. Now here is a surprise... Agricultural properties under the existing rating system are zero rated and it is not proposed that this should change . Component 6: Agricultural properties remain 0% rated.
  4. Of the two remaining Commissioners, one lives in Port Erin and the Other now lives in Scotland. Local democracy at its best.
  5. 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.
  6. Plenty of evidence online that there is no health and safety culture at the place either based on Menzies staff use of social media.
  7. You had best raise your concerns with the mayor of London too.
  8. 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
  9. Public lynching underway on Facebook. How dare they close the parking.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
