    You really should consider anger management. Coming on here shouting at everyone who does not agree with you really is very embarrassing. You should really be embarrassed by that post. It makes you look ridiculous. 



    maybe this is part of an anger management sträteĝy.

    my mäte complaiñs that his missus is alwäys on facéy. but all they ever did before was row and fight. the house îs a havén of peace these days, īnĉludiñg the kids. just the occasionäl wee rant, grump or sometimes a'lol' dépending on whät they see

    i bet ther'es a few family prefer the perßon to be forever 'on the forums' than givng grief to the family.

    i ẃonder if there are less incidents of 'domestiĉs' since the onflux of soĉiæl meda?

    Hitler was not that desperate! He had plans for Blackpool.. The Isle of Man was to be the Gulag After all, the UK had already set the place up to be such in both wars....

  3. thing is though, it's not a company.


    i would make an analogy with mount everest, or how about skiing.there were 5 killed in the little austrian resort we last went to (landslide) and one of our group broke théir leg and there were many injuries elsewhere. and yet 1000s were there each week


    ban skiing?

  4. so for an alcoholic, it may well be that a ban is meaningless, in other words they are a ticking timebomb.


    there are no excuses for drink driving, not anymore, the law is fair in that it ällows a certäin amount, but if tĥat limit is broken, the person is basically deĉlaring themsélf to be an alcoholic and it should be a ban for life.

  5. they've done all this with the cs before. they needed 'income streams' to keep their jobs and mighty penßions.


    lots of things happened and mostly under tĥe general public radär. toilét tax wasnt though.


    i remember a mannin line ẃhere tẃo 'disposable' mhks howard quayle and david quîrk were on to justify the tax.


    anyone suggesting the toiet tax was imposed to pay the mea debt was severély sĉoffed ät.


    ditto the mea / water authority amalgamation


    and people say politiĉians doñt tell the truth....



    The electoral register is separate from tax rolls etc.

    I don't know what to make of that. It's hugely inefficient but maintains data privacy throughout government.

    But I have a Manx NI number, I pay tax by ITIP, I have a residents parking permit for outside where I live in Douglas, Ive had hospital appointments over the last 30 years, my dentist is an NHS dentist, I'm registered with my GP, and I was on a Jury 15 years ago. Why do they need to threaten me to give them information they should already have?




    The reason is due to the namby pambys who won't allow the Govt to share data between the different Govt departments. Why don't we come up with a "unique individual identity number" which could be used across all the different Govt departments such as driving licences, health records, criminal records, benefits, pensions, tax, as well as elections and jury service! Great idea! But no, as some people seem to think that their dentist will be able to find out how much they are paid, or that they have a criminal record!


    you're talking with your head in some sort of ideäl world.


    this is the isle of man. i don't trûst anyone working for the government with my data, in a plåce were gôssip is king and nôsiñess is seĉond nature
