  1. I always think it would be good to do a Clockwork Orange on Alex Brindley. Shoot him full of speed and give him a bottle of vodka and get him to interview people about dog crap and school dinners. I'd pay to listen to that. You mean the double act of Rob Callister and David Ashford. Parish Pump meets Cottage Pie. I dont mean anyone specifically. I would just like to see a shock jock on Manx Radio (or any local media) actually challenging anyone.
  2. Is it wrong to just hope that he'll die of something awful before he successfully saves the UK from Brexit? http://metro.co.uk/2016/11/20/tony-blair-might-be-coming-back-to-save-us-from-brexit-6271005/ I'm sure even remainers would prefer Brexit to the successful resurrection of a piece of crap like Tony Blair. It just shows you the power of NLP.

  5. Well both would be nice, but either will do at a pinch. It always results in some information getting into the public domain, even if it is "Not telling you". Actually that can be the most telling result of all. It's all a bit depressing really. People need to face the reality that nothing has changed. I think Hooper has been the most effective questioner but let's acknowledge that he's the one still probably being fed questions by the people behind the questions that have been pitched by Lib Van and PK. Kate can't ask them anymore now she's a Minister. The rest of the questioning has
  6. Quality not quantity surely Roger?
  7. So you object to the Pinewood investment but support investing into blue sky technology.
  8. Here's the chamber list http://www.iomchamber.org.im/public/member-directory.aspx Search for relevance by sector.
  9. You don't even live here anymore from what I understand so can you please leave Manx people to debate Manx issues without your incessant chatter of bullshit. Thanks.
  10. Not true Barrie. You get the right to work there but basically you won't be able to physically live there unless you are registered and even then you can only basically live in lodgings and non permanent addresses as the work permit is a total red herring. No point in having the automatic ability to work if you don't actually have the right to physically stay there.http://www.gov.je/Home/RentingBuying/HousingLaws/Pages/NonQualifiedHousing.aspxYou need a higher level of housing rights to have any permanency or choice of what you are allowed to stay in or buy at all.http://www.gov.je/Working/Con
  11. You already have something similar by way of licensing accommodation but you have never used the legislation as sponsored by Peter Karran when MHK..Also, Jersey has a bigger pool of low life poverty stricken folk compared to the IOM and no NHs as you know it... But the system works and it still protects locals. I've really never got the IOM government as it's tried to be too inclusive for too long. It should never have been about work permits at all. It should always have been exactly what others do which is control the rights to live and stay there as that's how you control your tax receipt

  13. Housing permits are a commercial solution to a problem which seems to work well down there. It doesn't seem to hold Jersey back that much in terms of recruitment and I suppose that sort of system allows local landowners and developers to get high rental against the pool of properties that are allowable which generates more tax. It probably also takes house price inflation out of properties that only locals are allowed to buy as they're not fighting wealthier new residents to buy that housing stock.
  14. It's certainly used to be but not for 15 years now.
