  1. Where was the department of tourism / sport welcoming party and the press for the photo shoot?
  2. We should just be grateful that the airport is there for us. no need to let operators and customers get in the way of it operating.
  3. So why does the airport not open on a Sunday at 7 to let the papers in?
  4. There will be some calls to Howard in the morning to see who will pay for the landing fee at Manchester and the extra fuel.
  5. Good for those who have proper internet provider instead of 2 bean tins and string from MT.
  6. Is this airport providing a service to support the Island? Newspapers on a Sunday cannot arrive until 11.00. When people go out to buy a paper they usually buy something else in the shop. No papers this does not happen. Time it was fixed.
  7. In Jersey how many people are now self isolating following tracks and trace?
  8. 14 days or 7 days and a swab test another day for the result. I had a test not pleasant!

    Really! still 14 days for group B England, Scotland & Ireland with some English regions group A. the seven day option is still restrictive. Anyone travelling from a Group A country within the previous 14 days must enter compulsory self-isolation for 14 days. Anyone travelling from a Group B country can self-isolate for 14 days or elect to self-isolate for seven days and then take a test for SARS-CoV-2, with release from quarantine if they have a negative result. If the second option is chosen, they must have a 'passive follow up' which means they must report any symptoms consistent with Covid-19 and return to self-isolation, not visit a hospital unless for emergency care, discuss with the relevant healthcare service if they need an appointment during the period of passive follow up and must not visit a care or residential home without prior arrangement with the care home manager.

    Strange if they had been to Guernsey that they said they would have to isolate.......

    Seriously, if this did happen and they get caught forget the fine etc it is the contact tracing of all the people they have met via Tesco and their self isolation. That is the selfish bit. All arrivals until they get home should be wearing masks.

    If things are become optional I’ll not be paying tax, rates, car tax or insurance.
  13. I have program that logs the drop outs but MT would not acknowledge the data as evidence. At their end they said it was ok and if I wanted an engineer I would have to wait and if no fault found be billed. They have laid fibre but not said when it will be available. I will only sign up for fibre on a trial basis. Everyone should do the same.
  14. Imagine if electricity, gas, sat TV or mains water was supplied with the quality of service that internet broadband is provided.... there would be riots.

  16. No I joined the ... I knocked someone down club at 30 mph and if it was 20 ....
  17. Modern cars at 20 mph stop a lot quicker than older cars - Twenty is Plenty ...but needs policing to educate the young and the unwilling.
  18. The risk of catching Covid will be greater at arrival and departure points in the U.K. or further on. So testing on arrival back in IOM will not identify if you have it. It will only appear in the next 1-14 days. if you have had a swab test you will not be keen to have another one!
  19. No problem IOM and NI are on the Irish Green list. U.K. is not.
  20. IOM Gov need to have an independent review of the provision of broadband both Towns and rural.
  21. Schools are back and a lot of people have gone back to work.
  22. Aircraft leasing costs maybe at lower rates but minimum lease period will be 5 years, and will require a bank guarantee of $1m just in case your new airline sinks early.
  23. If the IOM Gov ( population) is going to subsidise air travel then it would be better to have a contractual arrangement with an existing Operator who has aircraft and crew available to provide key route services and limit open skies until the market recovers. No point in supporting an airline for another to swoop in and cherry pick. There are no surprises on what an airline will cost. Just pop down to Guernsey and ask their government what their net costs are to keep their national airline.
