  1. It is not just about the usage time. For climate change, fireworks release ozone a secondary pollutant and greenhouse gas that is formed from molecular oxygen in the presence of sunlight and nitrogen oxides carbon dioxide, particulates that cause respiratory issues, and heavy metals into the air. For envoiromentalists fireworks leave metal particles, dangerous toxins, harmful chemicals and smoke in the air for hours and days. Some of the toxins never fully decompose or disintegrate, but rather hang around in the environment, poisoning all they come into contact in a short amount of time. I also can't believe the burning of catholic effigyies in this day and age.
  2. So were any of our climate change brigade there with their banners out moaning about these fireworks pumping Co2 and N2o into the atomphere. No doubt they were just moaning about poor visibility due to the weather. Please climate change people have some consistency, don't stand there going woo at the fire works and then blame me for the weather because I drive a diesel car.
  3. If it is the operator of the above group, he must be a nasty piece of work. Must be Facebook mentality believing their own press. I wonder would he have done this to one of the male MHKs.
  4. There must be methodist in the madness for this. Could be they think with the road slightly higher than the pavement will form some sort of sea barrier. May be the same thinking as with Laxey, cut a hole in the wall, put a harris fence up and that will stop any flooding.
  5. Tim Craig was assistant clerk, then acting clerk one minute there next minute gone. Morrison's exit was well publicised where as mr Craig's wasn't and everyone on here likes a conspiracy theory.
  6. Well I think the ratepayers of Onchan deserve an explanation for Michael Morrison and Tim Craig, what and if it cost the Onchan ratepayers However it seems he doesnt like confrontration or transparency, well maybe being a politician is definitely not for him if his Health has been affected by this small Commissioners Boardroom What I would tell him is to man up, shame the devil and tell the Onchan ratepayer the truth.
  7. You missed out bar skittle and dominoe touraments which would be a hugh attraction for the over eighties.
  8. I have looked and can't find the a listing of who palyed and who, the scores and how the manx players did. Just thought it would be nice to see if there was anybody I knew and how they did. I don't mean Mr Callister np doubt it is on his blog how he did, I took his advice and don't read it.
  9. Does anyone know who were the 25 manx players Is there anywere to show who played who and how well the manx players are doing.
  10. I wanted to set up a Local Facebook Group. So had to answer a few question before Facebook would allow it. I don't suffer with Mental health problems, I don't have small man syndrome. I don't spend every minute on a computer moaning about my life being shit, I have a Job. I don't have three thousand friends on Facebook whom I never met. I don't think every manx politician except RC is a waste of space (completely the opposite to be honest). I wouldn't delete and block anybody who disagrees with my view point. Obviously I was declined.

  12. Canceliation of the TT Zero just proves we are not really interested in climate change. Why not have cars and bikes doing timed laps, intergrate the two to show how far they have come in this technology since milk floats. Surely this would attracted a lot more interest and promote the TT.
  13. I thought it already was.
  14. Why the hell does he want to take more work off taxi drives at TT time by adding more buses. If it is not bad enough wilth their dial a bus. Will the last taxi driver please put his plying for hire light out.
  15. But if your seeking re-election in Douglas it is a master stoke, No Doubt the changes will not come into effect untill after the next election. Then Alison or Hooper will be in charge of the cabinet office and like magic, in a puff of smoke the changes will disappear.
  16. So then your are saying he is just grandstanding. This reactive and proactive talk is all bullshit. Next he will saying lets bring in people from the University of Higherinsight to help.
  17. To me it is like having your pocket picked while on holiday aboard, then going back to the same spot ten years later to see if you can find who picked your pocket and if you can get your money back. Only to have your lugguage stolen while you where too busy looking for a ten year old wallet, that been empty for ten years. Tynwald continues with its magic tricks, the art of misdirection.
  18. If Rob really believes it is a salary of £50,882.60 but only paying taxes and NI on £43,479 then surely he should ask treasury for an assessment of the extra tax and NI, they should also include the two previous years . He should then pay them what the assessment is to be fair and honest as he believes it is part of his salary.
  19. a few more Number of motorbikes coming to the island radically dropping during TT. Hotel guest numbers radically declining while some how tourist numbers increasing. The Manx radio TT extra funding at taxpayers expense £113,000.00. The Interview at manx radio which for some reason was he allowed to a change because of mistakes he made. and the best one the Fairy houses cost fiasco. and to think he is only on one department with probably the easiest job with agency people to help him.
  20. Self praise is no praise at all Lord Byron.
  21. You would have to prove Robs pass record of such organisational skills for me to agree, otherwise I will think it is just a waste of taxpayers money .
  22. how the hell do you think a big pool event is not a bad idea. If it was one like the late hugh hefner use to hold, bad luck as the only tits will be DfE for investing in this non event. Why do they not invest in real sport, like Golf, Football or a Rugby Tourament.( sorry yes that would be down to DESC as local sport) Something that would attract real numbers of people. ( not the made up numbers from chris thomas department). FFS we aleady have enough Grandmasters over here and not the chess kind.
  23. Well lets hope Howard takes this away from DfE as this seem to be the worse case of self indulgence from a political member I can remember. As other competitions are lost on island, and real spectator sports like the Car Rally. What will we be left just International pub competitions, whats next an International Dominoes event. As for people going missing you can bet someone will not be on his hols while this event takes place.
  24. I thought that would be up to Creegen if the island gets the world rights to pool. He is the Minister in charge of sports. Would be nice to know if Creegen has been invovled or will it be another DfE fiasco. It will end up DfE funding for the first year then passing on to DESC saying don't worry it is only Half a million Pounds a year to hold the event, out of your budget. But don't worry the return to the island economy is uncountable from the advertising, the seven people who come to play in it and their two mates spend on island.
  25. Can I ask why would DfE cover the cost of you going to watch a Pool Competition.?
