  1. Where is the speculation? I inquired of the location. The rest I'll leave to the investigators that went after me. I will await the outcome with interest.
  2. Do we know if it was on those markings (I refuse to call it a crossing as it bears no resemblance to anything I have ever seen in any traffic management manual or the Highway Code) that this happened? It is such awful news. Underpins the vulnerability of cyclists. Rest easy, young man.
  3. Fair enough then. Sounds rather pragmatic against the overall belts and braces approach
  4. I’d predict that there will need to be 2 weeks with no new detected cases and then a further week, before you see any changes.
  5. I wouldn’t go as far to say that.
  6. His office is at the Sea Terminal. tell him I sent you.
  7. On the planning side, money doesn’t always curry favour. A wealthy individual I’m aware of has persistently come up against issues.
  8. But at what point were they imported? There’s only a few that come in at the top slot from across.
  9. If I recall he was arrested for fraud issues. The misconduct offence, if it existed would have, in my opinion hovered up a good few of these cases over the years. this is a few years old, but worth a read. How much has changed? https://www.irishtimes.com/news/chasing-a-manx-tale-1.1170605
  10. Until there is an offence of misconduct in a public office, Manx officials will not give the consequences a second thought
  11. That is scandalous. That, and the withholding of the FOI. what else is buried?
  12. I didn’t hire him. bit when he was on my team, both RPU and armed policing, couldn’t fault his drive, determination, work ethic, caring and professionalism. did he give you a ticket or something?
  13. Lols. in my time there were plenty of times we could have done with more staff to ease the load. But we just had to suck it up and get on with it.
  14. Just how many layers does this job need? https://www.jobtrain.co.uk//iomgovjobs/DisplayJob.aspx?JobId=11818 so there is a Director of Transport, a head of fleet services and now a fleet services manager? Never mind an Auditor General, the Island is crying out for a “what the f*ck do you do? Department. In times of austerity, you tighten your belt, not do another lap at the drive thru.
  15. Many years ago, very sensibly Gary Roberts set up an Organisational Development Unit. I remember it well cos it was staffed with one person - me! His aspiration was to create a ‘learning organization’. Where we didn’t forget the mistakes of the past and we’re better for them. It was creaky, clunky and perhaps only now, a decade or so on, is it starting to get there I hear. It was an important idea. And it is equally important for IOMG to do something similar.
