  1. That's life though. For example, wealthy Asians send their kids to study in the UK. Poor Asians don't. It'll always be the case that generally some people will have access to opportunities and some won't. It isn't an equal world and his point is true (no matter how unhappy that might make people). The whole agenda round this is painful.
  2. It isn't really a fact though is it? You know several people. Yeh, sure you do. That's just lies really. It's probably common sense that of near 1000 students (or indeed anyone with a database of 1000 contacts) may have some details that are no longer valid. It's hardly anything to get excited about. Especially given the onus is on the student to keep the DESC informed. The ultimate responsibility lies with the student.
  3. It just seems like the same old bullshit to me. "I know of several". How many times do you post that guff to try and validate your point? In reality it'll be a very small number who change email addresses. Plus it would be delusional to believe students in general do not know the position (contacted by email or not).
  4. I didnt say no one gets hurt. I said most of the RTCs up there result in very few people being hurt. It's the minority rather than the majority.
  5. I always think when you post this sort of thing you are simply making it up.
  6. That's an age thing. He doesn't know any better. I agree with you.
  7. Those working extra are balanced off by those hiding and doing as little as possible. I've seen this first hand. From a business perspective it's largely over cautious but of course you have to make policies to pacify the lowest common denominator. Again, I have direct experience of this.
  8. It doesn't matter what he wants. COMIN decide.
  9. The amount of paranoid nutters government are having to deal with over this must be enormously time consuming.
  10. People should progress/get jobs/promotions etc on their own merits. Not because a quota needs filling for "inset here" sections of society.
  11. Well the problem really is that the words "community case" will invoke irrational melt down of many people. Possibly more importantly many companies will panic (,(we saw this with Zurich etc recently) and send everyone back to working from home. Causing further unnecessary damage to the economy. I would much prefer we were not told the truth really. It's only going to escalate numbers wise in the coming month as students return. I'll be surprised if the whole household isn't forced into isolation for returning students. Many finance sector companies have that policy anyway (keeping y
  12. It actually feels like some people on here are almost desperate for community cases.
  13. It's rarely like that though. I agree with you on nights like tonight.
  14. Most RTCs are pretty minor in nature. No one is hurt. Or others involved. There has been a fatality this year. In a 50mph limit.
  15. Nothing to be gained between now and late January by cancelling. A lot can change.
  16. There's no rush to cancel the TT.
  17. The lions share are not home already. And it's over 900.
  18. Alternatively, if you can't drive in the fog go the Kirk Michael or Coast Road routes.
  19. Pretty much everyone who drives over the Mountain will get frustrated at arriving behind a queue of traffic with someone crawling along at a slow pace. Today will be a great example of that. You will get people up on the Mountain crawling along at 25 in the fog. Pissing off an enormous amount of people. Are they breaking the law? No. But it doesn't make it right or acceptable.
  20. None of it at all. Other than you being a bit of weapon about it. Aside of that, fine and dandy
