  1. High rents on top of high rates What about the site on old river road? Could get some nice and stylish light industrial units on there. Northumberland Council laid off 600 when the financial crash happened. Northumberland is still there... The IOM could be an exemplar in the running of public services if it so chose

  3. And the majority of the Manx public just stuck it up...
  4. But why would he be? Is he going to be held to account? Has Whitehall finally started to question the 'good governance' clause in the Island's independence? The worst that can happen to HQ is he retires from politics with a nice pension to top up the wealth he already had. Reputation in tatters? Would he care and would it matter?
  5. Pretty sure we were all questioning the value of the home at the time. But it is allowed to perpetuate. Nobody is ever held to account
  6. That is just wrong. Police officers do take risks insofar as they manage them - some quite substantial. It’s Just some are more comfortable with the process, accountability and responsibility than others. this underpins; https://www.app.college.police.uk/app-content/risk-2/risk/
  7. I proposed this in March last as the pandemic took hold. Close the project and take the hit on the expenditure so far. It was never the right thing to do, and Covid was the perfect face saving excuse to write it off. But Manx Government hubris, the need for ‘projection of power’, usurped any sensible resolution. come September, I hope Manx voters ask members how they voted on this issue, and why?
  8. Is it fair to conclude that the taxpayer has been massively misled with this, and there has been no subsequent accountability in respect of the mounting costs of this project. Running costs are going to be considerable too, but nobody seems remotely bothered about this.
  9. And meanwhile, the queue for urgent procedures at Nobles is out the door and down the road

  11. Is there not a judgement of some sort related to the Knotfield inquiry due to be published?
  12. Makes a lot of sense. as would turning Jurby into a maximum security prison. Both could be lucrative income streams
  13. It’s the first question I’d be asking. This is a tactical role. I’d be nailing down the strategists and policy makers for some clear guidance and framework. Without it, you can’t actually do that job. I know there were folk near the top of the food chain who were totally blind to the level of accountability they were carrying.
  14. It is only the deputy role. I might have applied had I still been over there as I could evidence a lot of the criteria. If your risk assessments are done properly, and you have clear terms of reference in terms of government policy on acceptable risk, then it would be a breeze. Mind you, seeI got as they have closed all the open air amenity sites, it appears that risk appetite is starting to diminish somewhat!
  15. TT 2022 must be on https://www.jobtrain.co.uk//iomgovjobs/DisplayJob.aspx?JobId=11953
