    Why be shy

    Because I have a life and don't have time to post on every thread.

    'no current plans to close Ramsey library' ?

    Yes, some of these salaries for jobs which are obviously going to relatives or friends of the recruiting managers really are taking the p!!!!ss. When is the Isle of Man going to realise that this level of self-serving corruption is going to see it go the way of the Venetian Republic?

    So you think closing down a library is a more sensible approach than reforming Ramsey's local authority employment arrangements such as employee numbers and remuneration?

    Pubs closing

    Yes, which is completely immoral, unethical, contrary to the national interest, a violation of free market principles, anti-democratic, and more than anything it is contrary to their own economic future as a contraction of pubs around the island will have (and has already had) a domino effect in reducing the overall interest in pubs. It's a fallacy to think that reducing the number of pubs on the island will mean your pubs generate more customers.

    Pubs closing

    Eminent domain as part of broader anti-trust measures.

    Pubs closing

    As a matter of principle, to set precedent to put a stop to these stupid covenants.

    Year Of Our Island

    It might not happen in the preferred order, but eventually our unsustainable economic model is going to collapse and cuts will then be made, even if liquidators have to come in and take over the government.

    How much profit does the IOM Constabulary bring to the island each year?

    Pubs closing

    What is the highest level to which this can be appealed? The Minister or can you go higher, to the Courts?

    I'm opposed to the closing down of any libraries. People who claim the internet or computers have or will ever replace a public library are simply morons. For one thing, no library or after school venue means young people would have no location to engage in quiet study other than at home, which for many means a house with a loud television, psychologically a person needs to separate "study/work space" and "home/entertainment/chill space" otherwise any attempt at a disciplined schedule or time management will go out the window. Home also includes lots of other distractions like access to games consoles, television, etc. At least if you have a library, you can be in a space where these distractions are not immediately present. If just one child benefits from a library being open, it's value well spent, in my opinion. That child could grow up to invent the cure for cancer, HIV/AIDS, or even Manx Crab Syndrome.

    Yes, of course I'm not. The d!!!!!!ck head banned me (despite his lame Salman Rushdie cover pic) because he's a total loser.

    They need to start reducing government expenses before they do anything else.
