  1. Yes, that's who I meant, I'd forgotten about Beecroft. I just wonder what it is he actually does these days, he's pretty quiet. Maybe he does great constituency work for the residents of the paradise of Douglas East.
  2. You can go plant trees in Ballabeg this weekend https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=2683731034995062&id=498114776890043
  3. I notice from your league table Roger that the only 'opposition' MHK (if that is still the case?) hasn't bothered to ask anything. What is the point of him?
  4. Yes I know that, I assume that's why you highlighted the sentence but not the word 'all'. It's the initial shock of the payment on account thing that is the problem, it isn't explained at all clearly in their advice sheet for new self employed persons, and comes as a bit of a surprise. Or certainly did for me, and lots of other people. Its been raised on here before and I know lots of other self employed people it has caught out. You quickly get on top of it though, and if you go in and talk to them about it they're actually really helpful. The tax office is weird. Really helpful in person, dreadful over the phone.
  5. Locked and loaded, ready for war.
  6. Sometimes schedule changes to radio are a really bad idea. See the lack of RadMac on weekday afternoon 6music for an example. Ruined.
  7. There is a fairly obvious difference between the two.
  8. Oh yeah its shit. They base it on what you earned last year +5% and expect you to pay it before you've technically earned it all. Tell them you'll pay £50 a month direct debit to shut them up, and kick off next year about it because they've just paid you a rebate and that its absolutely stupid. They stop bothering you after that.

    TT 2018

    I strongly dislike the TT, but I wouldn't like to see it stopped. In our increasingly risk averse H&S obsessed world the fact we have a race where danger is the name of the game is great. Insane, but great.
  10. Drove along the prom today by mistake. Seemed to be plenty of workers about. Why are the new horse tram tracks so high?

    TV Licensing

    Wasn't there some police or oft press release the other day saying watch out for cold callers? Maybe it was a tip off

    bridge to Man,

    BB will love that thread title.
  13. Look forward to your response to the next stage then, forget Yellowhammer, next up is Black Swan. Its like something from a really shit novel.
  14. Yeah, that could be it Woolley. Or they could have changed it because they're all a bunch of lying fraudsters.
  15. Or here from the Sunday Times journalist involved in the leak
  16. They've changed it from 'base case' to 'worst case' haven't they? Certainly seems to be what some of the internet chatter says, like this for example
  17. Hey man look at me rockin' out I'm on the radio Hey man look at me rockin' out I'm on the video…
  18. Every past government you could name releases confidential internal correspondence. And every future one will do so too, when it suits them.
  19. They've owned one on Birch Hill Crescent for years, across from the top entrance to Cronk Avenue. They bought the now derelict Birch Hill Farm years ago and have tried a number of times to get planning for there. The plan would be to knock that house down and run the road in through there, so that Maple Avenue? wouldn't become a through road. I dunno how many times it has been knocked back but it's a few. There would/will be too much traffic trying to get out of Birch Hill in the morning if/when they eventually get planing.
  20. Yeah I didn't really read the article properly It was a short sharp drop on the news was all.
  21. Good day for world peace. Have you seen what's happened to the price of oil?
  22. If no one is running it, then it'll probably run just fine, better probably than for ages. Just normal staff getting on with their jobs with little to no management interference and bullshit.
