  1. Do you have the origin of this comment? Superficially the power station consists of a building, a gas turbine engine, and an electrical generator. The turbine engines can be replaced as can the electrical generators. "End of life" might just mean that one component has reached the end of its expected working life and has to be replaced.
  2. Let's assume that the Information Commissioner is competent. He set a deadline that he thought was achievable. Manx Care didn't achieve it.
  3. What happens now? Presumably they are still non-compliant. Does the Information Commissioner set another deadline?
  4. I sense I missed the word "captured" as in "captured in statute". This is a CEO. Someone thinks it worthwhile paying him a salary. Not me.
  5. The licence has been issued by the Isle of Man Gambling Supervision Commission. I find this confusing. The CEO of the Gambling Supervision Commission states: "The GSC has worked attentively to identify a definitive list of stakeholders before creating the regulations to ensure the correct information gateways are captured in statute." Note the words "attentively", "definitive", and "gateways" which add nothing to the comment. I sense a great deal of bullshit in that press statement.
  6. They have signed a contract. (I can't find the details now, but I recall the price/lease costs were low) https://www.iomtoday.co.im/news/politics/lord-street-to-be-done-by-may-2023-236211 "’Notwithstanding the above, the separate agreement contains a contractual obligation on the developer to complete its development of the entire site within 36 months of the date of the separate agreement, that is May 4 2020.’"

  8. I might jump to the conclusion that Kane Ltd is not allowed to make money from operating it as a car park, so let people park free of charge thus depriving DBC of the income they would otherwise have received. Perhaps someone is looking for a compromise which would allow Kane Ltd to earn money from the site without having to construct seven cinemas.

  10. This was supposed to a serious thread about the prom. Ah, ok, the prom. is a joke. A cheeseburger goes into the bar, and the barmaid says "Sorry, we don't serve food here" An Italian goes into a bar and orders a Martinus. The barmaid said "Don't you mean a Martini?" and the Italian said "I only want one". A termite goes into a pub and says "Is the bartender here" A baby seal goes into a bar, and the barman says "What will it be?" and the baby seal says "Anything but a Canadian Club". A bear goes into a bar (this is a long joke so you will have to bare with me) and the barman says "We don't serve bears here". The bear says "If you don't serve me I'm going to take a bite out of that woman sitting at the bar". The barman says "I told you, no bears". So the bear goes up to the woman, takes a bite out of her and goes back to the barman who says "No bears, especially those on drugs". The bear says "I'm not on drugs" and the barman says "That was a barbiturate".
  11. A dog walks into a saloon. One foot is bandaged up. It hops up to the bar and says "I'm lookin' fer the man that shot ma paw". A bear walks into a bar and says "A pint of bitter annndddd.... a packet of peanuts". The barman says "Why the big paws"

    270 degrees can be useful for queue jumping.
  13. Don't taunt us with these hints of gossip stuff. Someone made an FoI request for the accident report and was give the usual fuck-off. So, is she suing the gov. for injuries received?
  14. So the intersection may be considered simultaneously both an unmarked junction and a roundabout as a result of its fate being linked to a random subatomic event that may or may not occur. I think I might be better off going to the pub and talking about Arsenal's chance of winning in the cup.
  15. It was Longworth's intent to use the Cabbage to pull the steam dining car. Presumably it would have been re-branded as the Diesel Dining Delight. Possibly he was going to use a pick-up truck to pull the horse-trams when no horses were available - on strike for more hay.
