    Planning Appeals

    Lesson were learned by Government following the Mount Murray enquiry. Those lessons are to suppress all objections and any hope of accountability. I am sure the world will be beating a hurried march to our door step to learn how a Shop Window Democracy works. The Isle of Man where you can.

    £400K to seduce immigrants

    Looks like us daftees will be paying for it. The Isle of Man where you can! Get screwed.

    Is that not the profit margin that Manx Gas negotiated!

    £400K to seduce immigrants

    Not a problem, it is a piece of evidence, why then are we not inundated with this success story from government with actual examples of how trickle down has been working to offset the huge tax advantages given to the wealthies? Only saying.

    £400K to seduce immigrants

    Given that this piece of Reagan Economics has been rejected by many economic experts. I would love to see the evidence that this has worked on the Isle of Man and who has benefited. Not holding my breath.

    £400K to seduce immigrants

    Given that the Treasury have handed huge tax breaks to the wealthies in order to attract business, Yet another hand out? When are we going to receive evidence that Treasury policy is recuperating the huge loss to tax revenues already lost to our wealthies?

    Manx Radio

    Not far wrong though.

    Small Countries Financial Management Centre (SCFMC)

    Could not agree with you more.

    Govt Pensions Revealed

    This was a major feature of the 2006 General Election, Karran was not the only one to point out the pension black hole. Trouble was once they got elected they all fell in line,same happened at the next two election. Our MHKs are there for themselves.

    Pubs closing

    Not the first business that will blame the above for their demise. By luck we are well regulated nation and only a phone call away from obtaining sound advice from that government department that knows all. Plus a ChiefMinister who is equally able in steering our nation through the rough water ahead.

    Manx Gas Standing Charges

    Given that the whole operation was overseen and verified by a government department by the apply named Office of FAIR Trading it will definitely reach the long grass in double quick time.

    Freedom of Information request?

    Third Worlds Safest City

    As a nation we are not blessed with good leadership or any evidence of lessons being learned. Planning was a feature yesterday on Manx Radio, one million pounds was spent on the Mount Murray enquire which exposed appalling malpractice by Ministers and civil servants. Recommendation were made, none have been implemented and the report went into the long grass. Your in very good company Derek.

    Third Worlds Safest City

    Appreciate your candid response. Cannot believe the fact that within such a small jurisdiction we are unable to deal with the basic updating legislation . Considering the wealth that has been lost does not bode well for any injection of money or increase in budgets. Thanks again I hope other eyes are looking at your valid observations.
