    I read somewhere that some idiot paid £25 for a Chinese hat at the grandstand.
  2. It’s government all over. They won’t count the overtime, the extra hours, the time spent or the cost of putting things like all the traffic cones out, or the emergency services all being on effective standby for two weeks etc as that will just be sunk into whatever departments operating budget it’s in. As you say running and crewing a couple of choppers for a week won’t be cheap and all the other extra costs (and one offs like investigating fatalities etc). It’s just made up numbers. I’d say the figure needs to be nearer to £2-3M.
  3. It can’t be an accurate cost as quite frankly that figure is completely implausible. It’s like me saying I could put the Reading Festival on for 100 quid.
  4. You do think someone like Rob would learn - how to show that you’re not bothered by something and don’t want to suppress it, by blatantly showing that you are categorically bothered about it and are actively suppressing it. For some light reading here’s a link to a BBC article on the Streisand Effect - that being “the act of trying to suppress information but simply making it more widespread as a result” https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-18458567 It would probably be a worth while lesson for Rob to learn as I’m sure if he had just ignored everything from day one nobody would even have batted an eyelid. However, it seems that up pops the Cueball Blog again and he’s back to shouting at people and making threats to posters on Manx Forums and getting people to noticeably and publicly ban links to the blog everywhere on Facebook Groups. The end result = more people have probably noticed what’s going on and more people have either been made aware of the blog or have read the blog. It’s a doomed strategy really when if a fuss hadn’t been kicked up in the first place less people would probably have been aware of the Blogs content and existence. In that regard he doesn’t seem to be able to help himself. Didnt we pay for him to have some media training at some stage? I hope we got a refund! To perpetuate the own goal here’s the link again https://cueballsdiaryofasadman.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/cue-balls-tt-diary-when-cuey-met-willy/
  5. Oh yes and I note Cueball was also right on this - but he was up even earlier today! “I rise at 7:00 to work my way through the local news, Twitter and Facebook sites to update myself”
  6. Do you always get up at 6 am just to strenuously deny things on public forums?
  7. Is being an asshole now a crime in the IOM?

    It’s clear he’s probably an even bigger fantasist than Quirkie and he doesn’t even do a bit of football training with the kids to make good. Just pushes fantasy Facebook rubbish to try to insult people intelligence.

    I’m sure the published blogs at that stage will cover nothing but the usual glib sugar-coated nonsense and totally dodge the bullet on anything like that.
  10. I was just reading back through the Cue Ball posts on Twitter - was he the one who dropped anchor in poo bay?

    Really? You seem to be quite seriously deluded and clearly via your recent social media posts you apparently show signs of extreme paranoia. Why do you repeatedly claim that posters (any poster at all) who question your motives have a political agenda when clearly you’re basically just rubbish at most of the things you do and say? It’s not hard to work or point that out. The voters of Onchan are basically paying for you to incompetently stumble through the next 3 years.

    I did like the Blog which raised its head again today https://cueballsdiaryofasadman.wordpress.com/2018/06/09/cue-balls-tt-diary-when-cuey-met-willy/
