    Isle of Man News and Politics

    All I want to say, and this doesn't apply to all posters, but quite a few.....is.... well done. You've finally managed to make MF absolutely and totally irrelevant. Back in the day there really were some politicians who feared the potential gems of real, honest information this forum was capable of. But now, every single initial post, irrespective of it's seriousness, sadness or worthiness of at least 'grown up' discussion ends up in puerile, childish slanging matches. Schoolyard stuff. If you don't believe that, notice neither the CS, the PS, indeed the whole of the Manx Government no longer feel it necessary to try and gag us anymore. What an opportunity lost. Again very well done. You know who you are.. y

    Sony 55" 4K 3D UHD TV

    Investing in the 65" means this set needs a new home. This range has the most fantastic picture quality and as it's based on the Android platform it's about as interactive as it gets. Phenomenal 4k video on youtube. Quote: "Taking 4K UHD two stages further, the Sony KD55XD9305 is compatible with HDR (High Dynamic Range). This extends the range of colours for enhanced realism. It also delivers brighter whites and darker blacks, helping to give this TV stunning levels of contrast. Where this Sony 55 inch TV goes even further is in using Sony's X-tended Dynamic Range PRO processor. By precisely balancing the light output across the screen, dimming some areas and boosting others, X-tended Dynamic Range PRO reveals a brightness range three times that of a conventional LED-backlit TV" End quote. Original cost £1,699, yours for £1,000, or make me a reasonable offer. Text on 464844

    Flybe nosedives on profits warning

    Some say, IOMG had an opportunity to step in and nationalise Manx Airlines at that time. Some say, "it was a missed opportunity". However where do the records show our government making a success out of EVER stepping in where a commercial business is concerned and making a success of it TO OUR BENEFIT! I have the same doubts and fears about their new involvement with IOMSC. However on this occasion I would sincerely like/love to be proven wrong. We wait, and we wonder.

    Back on topic. A lot of people reckon we were better of with the old Manx Airlines scenario, where the Heathrow route was concerned we were, Reliability of flights (no consolidation as so frequently happens now) respectful treatment of travellers etc. But with a return fare to London of £264.00. A lot to pay though for a free cooked breakfast and those pleasantries

    No, you merely made them smile, possibly laugh....at your expense. They were smiling/laughing AT you...not WITH you.

    Yep....probably far too sensible for you to even reasonably understand. Shame you obviously took no notice of his/her teachings. There is however hope for you. Pull your neck in before you post...anything. Some maintain they find your posts 'entertaining'. If I were you, I'd see that sort of comment for what it really is, an out and out insult.

    Coincidentally, I am after neither 'likes' or 'dislikes'. I simply am able to accept the honest opinions of those who don't need to personally abuse those who might have the temerity to disagree. You, on the other hand believe yourself to be the only one 'in-step' in all posts.

    I 'was', reading a fairly balanced set of opinions on this particular subject, until your posts started to 'creep' in. However, before I made any comment I thought I'd make sure this attitude of yours was only because you felt so strongly about this particular subject. But no, your abrasive, cynical, unhelpful, and quite frankly ever so boring and repetitious statements pervade everything you choose to make comment on. There really is no excuse for your puerile behaviour. Sit somewhere quiet, and have a 'quiet' word with yourself.

    Lack Of Road Safety Strategy...

    I drive between Douglas and Laxey 5 days a week and areas covered by speed limitations change all the time. Especially TT week. Sometimes not going back to what they were previously. This year, a road I'm certain for the last...century? was 40mph changed to 30. As a consequence I ended up with my first, in 45 years of driving on the Isle of Man, penalty of a £120.00 fine. "Did I know how fast I was going" the good Traffic officer asked, "yes" I responded, "40 miles an hour". "Well sir the speed limit is 30" I understand that 'ignorance of the law' offers you no protection from prosecution, but it most have been obvious to this man that I had not intentionally broken the highway code rules. Intransigence, filling the coffers, meeting targets , who knows. But changing my opinion about our local traffic officers.....absolutely!

    Manx Radio

    Ok, lets allow a few FACTS in here that will probably spoil the fun for all those who really do (DUH), genuinely believe that Manx Radio broadcasters, full time and those on what have been referred to as on 'salubrious' freelance contracts earn 'loads a money' I have a relative who does a four hour show which takes another 2 hours to programme, total 6 hours. Her freelance fee...£75.... Not gonna get rich any time soon is she. £75 divided by 6 = £12.50 ph ! Sorry to spoil your fun an all that.
