  1. I see Lib Van asked for a debate on the spending of 38 million of tax payers money on the new sea terminal in Liverpool. No change voted down. The cost has trebled but hey ho it is not there money
  2. Wow. Accountability for tax payers money on the Isle of Man? No we have no such thing.
  3. The untapped knowledge ,experience and quality of individuals on the Isle of Man has always been ignored by the executive and the civil service who pull the strings. Our society has payed a heavy price for this ignorance.
  4. I understand we pay a few million every year for defence bout time we got a return on it
  5. Typical and where is our defence vessel? Tied up in Douglas harbour.
  6. He was very dapper in a blue pin stripe suit the other day with light tan shoes, just like a farmer from the west coast of Ireland. whoops he is a farmer.
  7. You have hit the nail on the head. I would prefer to have control on where incidents will happen. The party or parties will now disperse with the usual spread of resource to counter it. Far prefer agreeing with interested parties how to manage the process, a police boast in many press releases “Working with our partners and other agencies” Than allow twelve months to elapse and call it off. Poor Management Chief Constable?
  8. Why did the police not flag this up at the end of last years Prom celebrations given that have a culture of reviewing most of not all incidents. Had they done so they could have developed an action plan with other interested parties to ensure the proper running of this years event.
  9. If Beecroft is to believed when she was trying to rid her department of Couch she blamed both of them for her demise.
  10. Do not forget he will be hoping, like his predecessors in the office of Chief Minister a gong from the Queen. Like all his predecessors any confrontation with our rulers is met with a touch of the forelock.
  11. Unfortunate our politicians will not wish to destroy their change of getting a gong at the palace to pursue this worthy cause .
  12. I doubt anybody within the National Health Management have any track record of success. Two years to get an act together! Play the game then leave with 300grand in the back pocket after two years as our home team have no track record on overseeing projects or protecting public money from so called experts.
  13. Absolutely. Nothing more contrived than MHKS accepting UK awards.
  14. Not really. if we boast, and we do about our Independence , then we should devise are own systems of award to those on the Island that do public service.
  15. Why and Island that boasts its independence should involve themselves in an honour system from an adjoining country seems hypocritical especially when politicians receive a gong. Given that this is how it is then I heartily congratulate the recipients in the public service in the Isle of Man.
  16. The instances of drivers opening doors or standing in the road as you drive by are an every day danger. As for mothers taking their children out into the road from their cars is fraught with danger but they continue to do it. Not long before the fatal accident happens.

    These were promised by media Mick Culverhouse years ago to fulfil the promise of being the leading police force in the world. Totally necessary in my view, in the modern world of policing, albeit the Constabulary do not have to concern themselves with complaints ,the system was condemned in Culverhouses time by Tynwald but still carries on in the same form.
  18. We also have the revelation that 20 government worker???? Have been payed £100,000 golden goodbyes in the last five years. Life on MARS mutually agreed resignation scheme.
  19. The SAVE programme has not been a wholesale success! Brexit has grown the number of employees? Looks like Treasury are not cutting the mustard by failing to cut costs or increase revenue to cover government over spending.
  20. Is Beecroft going to be vindicated?
  21. Peter Karran’s favourite rant One Party State by Patronage.

    A sad reflection of Care in the Community on our Island which was imported from the adjacent Island Neither the UK or ourselves have a good record of care for those less fortunate especially with mental health issues which are mopped up and cared for by the penal system. No lessons learnt but we will certainly move on.
  23. Is that a pay as you go with three or a contract?
  24. Absolutely. Walked around Scarlett this afternoon, the two storm beach inlets which harbour plastic and have done for years are completely clear, except for wood. Down to Bill Dale and his initiatives to recruit the public to take responsibility and clean up their environment. The Eco Warriors would be better served by doing a similar job in their own communities to clear the environment of pollution and litter.
  25. Thanks John for coming to my defence.
