    Guilty of GBH, consent irrelevant

    You aren't doing a good job of explaining why you think this man should have been jailed for even longer.

    Why should it have been much longer? What for? And for what purpose? That's an absolutely stupid position to take. Change my mind.

    Can you please update the gov.im front page?

    Because when you're mega rich it's the easiest thing to do. Also, because he did it.

    Now sentenced to a remarkable 40 months in jail. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2019/mar/21/tattooist-dr-evil-jailed-for-performing-ear-and-nipple-removals

    Isle of Man News and Politics

    That's maybe a bit much. I don't know the guy, but like I said earlier he does seem to normally be reasonably well regarded. Someone I know northwards had run out of oil and was pretty skint and he was there pretty swiftly and helped them out. This spat is not a great moment.

    There's a fairly amusing exchange of views on the shops and shits page, between a couple of local firms. Former prospective MHK Nick Crowe, who does normally seem to have a reasonably good business reputation has let his mask slip.

    Chief Minister doesn't know the largest employers

    They don't need to. The money was given to them as an 'Exceptional Needs Grant' rather than a 'Budgeting Loan'.

    They didn't know. The Sefton Group told them that they were the islands biggest employers and that they absolutely had to have that money or 1000 people would lose their job. The government simply fell for it.

    Climate Change gets the Boot

    You've mentioned Tesla before and I pulled you on it, but you didn't respond. He wanted to electrify the whole world, loved electromagnetic fields and proposed what you'd call 'directed energy weapons'. Based on your scaremongering all over this site you should be absolutely terrified of him and his inventions.

    Plenty of opportunities for those over here eh? I've been to the pumped storage place in Llanberis, it is incredible, not an option for the isle of man.

    Part of the largest private employer.

    Climate Change gets the Boot

    Except it isn't twice the cost, they already have the back up. And they probably don't need the back up that much because it is always bloody windy! Hydro maybe is the way forward, but in the absence of any decent sized rivers we have to look at tidal and wave, and these come with their own problems. You'd imagine there could well be a way of using the insane rips through the Sound (ever been through on a kayak? Loads of fun), but err, seals.

    Climate Change gets the Boot

    The ridiculous debts of the MEA are holding us back, everyone involved in that bullshit is a cunt. Here we are on an Island, a mini country, where it is always windy. Total wind turbines zero. Pathetic. We are somewhere where the total amount of driving a normal person is likely to do in a day is less than 100 miles, so there should be many more electric cars. Hopefully as the technology becomes theoretically becomes cheaper we'll see more. We shouldn't be too hung up on the co2 thing, because as b4mbi points out in the grand scheme of things it is nothing. We should be looking for ways to stop fagging the world up with crap though, and burning it is probably not the right answer.

    So the UK is finished says Theresa Mayhem

    Everyone is a remoaner according to Woody, he refers to winners but cannot name one. Because there aren't any.

    What about the man with no brain who repeatedly types angry ignorant shit into a public forum?

    Manx Sport is Golden

    Unsurprisingly you are showing your ignorance here. Again. There are loads of classes in disabled sport designed to provide a degree of fairness. Examples https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/disability-sport/18934366

    Doing It On Your Doorstep

    A couple of the 'events' (explore Port Erin by foot? WTF?) in this slightly odd thing are at the Venture Centre. Now, it doesn't really matter where you live on the Island, Maughold is not 'on your doorstep'. Even if you live in Maughold.
