  1. Sorry first glance at this thought it said Whisky , at last somebody talking sense in the government.

                  Let's hope they spend it wisely. Maybe there'd be some spare change left over to help our addiction services and organizations, investment in local mental health services, homelessness,

  2. Had a drive along the promenade today and a thought struck me, apart from what a piece of shite this is going to look like when they eventually finish it. These are my own musings  and have no basis in fact what's so ever. The thing that struck me was due to one mans ego and desire to leave a legacy on the island, The prom is at least three years behind schedule and close to three times over budget. So from now on I will no longer be referring to it as the promenade, and hence forth will be Longworth's folly. Hopefully people will join me in its use and it will go down in Manx folklore, and 20/30 years down the line when a public house quiz master asks why was the promenade known as Longworth's folly. You will be able to furnish him with the correct answer, It was down to that knob Dirty Buggane. And hopefully that will be my legacy.

  3. All retiring my ass. Getting the fuck out before the gravy train runs dry and are asked to give some money back to help out. Or the embarrassment of not standing a chance of reelection and ending up working as a fluffer down on the failed marina in peel. Sorry my mind sometimes wanders.

  4. Talking about the score board, Why the fuck is it taking so long to knock down. According to Gov it was in such a poor state it was in danger of collapse  and killing large swathes of the population. Or has that thin covering on the fencing strengthened it so much they will have to get JCK in at a cost of £1.2million and specialized imported plant. Used to take them two weeks to dismantle and remove to storage up at the old Nissen huts  at the site called the homes, behind the old children's home. And all done by the Douglas Borough Corporation.

  5. Just for my own information and interest, What qualifies as compassionate grounds to be able to visit the island at this moment in time i.e. death of a parent/sibling of somebody who resides in England. You went to school with somebody who now lives on the island and you thought it would be great to go on the piss just like the good old days. And how long can you stay and what are the isolation rules you are supposed to follow. I have tried to find the information and failed, miserably I may add.

  6. So lets sack all civil servants and get them to reapply for their jobs on reduced wages and performance related upgrades. There always free to move on if they feel hard done to/by. Just sayin.

  7. Let me think. Obviously some one who has had it before, somebody who has antibodies, somebody who has had a blood test that shows they have antibodies. Somebody that Obviously thinks that they are immune and they cannot catch it again?.

    Where could this person be found, if they they really exist at all.

  8. No. The wheel you see is what you get, Horse tram wheels the wear is quite negligible due to speed and distance traveled. Also can be  welded and turned on lathe up at MER to prolong life. Then again I may be talking shite.

    Have a nice day fella

  9. I see the bloated DBC are charging ahead with putting up a statue to the BeeGee's. Seen the shelter has now been reduced to ruble so the plinth can be set. Thought after all the negativity this provoked they had knocked it on the head, but i suppose they had already spent £300,000 on the statue as they thought of all the back slapping and cheering that this would bring there way. the sooner the head of the council and his partner bugger off to France the better and less of expensive it will be to Douglas rate payers

  10. People will say remember when we had an elegant looking Victorian built, beautiful sweeping bay. And then we end up with this piece of shite that them pricks in governance thought would be there opus. Instead we get this miss match of shite including the shared space scheme that will inevitably lead to people being injured through traffic or undefined walkway areas. and after being dug umpteen times will look nowt like the pretty pictures with little stretch limo's and stick people.

    I would hope but doubt they will hang there heads in shame due to being part of it.

    Oh land of my birth

  11. The festoon lighting was replaced on mass about 15 years ago for low voltage halogen type lamps so if the did come down in a gale the public would not get the green mile affect. Still in pretty good condition and it has not gone to the great glen in the sky.

  12. Austerity ? . What is this word he right honorable gentleman is bandying about. We the high and mighty worthy's of this scepted isle will have non of it. I ask, nay demand it is struck from the minutes. And consequences for its use in the future be both severe and unjust.

  13. I see the road down to St Ninnians traffic lights has not been returned to as it was. They have just removed the bus lane cycle lane words from the ground at the pit lane exit and left lanes as is. Frightened looking girl on a bike wondering why all the cars were behind her as she held them up as they could not get past because of the two lanes. Should reinstate the road as was and take them stupid cycle boxes away at the head of the traffic cues they hold all traffic up and are creating a road hazard. Bicycles should stay in line with the rest of the traffic as per the highway code and not filter to the front. Will get burned for this, But until the DOI conj-our up extra  space so as the magic bike lanes can be separated from the cars we will have to share the space. Which is best done by every body following the highway code which is lawful, unlike most of these schemes they dream up and when some one gets hurt they will run  for the hills. Fire away

  14. It was a pity the DOI did not take into account the traffic coming up BlackBerry lane(where the detours had sent them) in their traffic management whilst undertaking to remove some paint and cones from around Governer's Dip this afternoon considering they must have been there since 8am. There again double bubble, rake in in boys only 7 more months of unending overtime left on the prom job

  15. Just a question for the people who might know, Do they now have a ward separate to the main hospital so if people succumb to covid19 it will not require the whole Hospital to be closed and put peoples lives at risk due to missed appointments and/or treatment. These deaths will will not show up for many months to come, and that is from the last closure. 

  16. My worry is the rest of the plane that the person came back on , Who is to say they did not pick it up on the flight and not where ever they were before.

    I would think track and trace should be contacting them at least if not testing They seem desperate not to discover if anybody else has picked it up.

    I was thinking it's not so serious till he stated they had it all under control and robust measures are in place, My Arse

  17. Yes' I also read prom was closed but would anybody know the difference as I now avoid it like the plaque and as I have learnt not to use it as a route around the rest of Douglas I will probabley continue after the ego based fuck up returns to a through fare. All they had to do was relay the bloody tarmac

  18. W-G-MM I take it you've bought into the zero carbon footprint by 2050 that will not make one iota to the world. When a Chinese town of approx 100,000 makes it to this ideal then the isle of man should strive to this match it. Until then save the money them there buffoons are squandering on a pipe dream that will drag us cap in hand to England with a begging bowl because we will be bankrupt.
