  1. Nice car - shame about the backdrop of overgrown footpaths, grass/weed filled gutters and broken fences. Doesn't make the Isle of Man look very good!! Neglect of the basics appears to have become the norm and the population just seems to accept it.
  2. Another nice big tax-free payoff must be imminent!!
  3. My comments under the Promenade Megathread on 24 Sept: Who on earth comes up with these "concept drawings" - the promenade walkway is not a bloomin' art installation - all that is needed is a durable, practical surface that will not be damaged by things like the funfair - it should be kept for pedestrians only. If they raise the existing sea wall by 1.2m pedestrians will hardly see anything of the beach - it will be like walking through a tunnel. It is time Government put an end to these crackpot ideas and started delivering what the people of this Island actually need. It is Fantasy Island at the moment!!
  4. How does this attitude / stance sit with her position in Tynwald? On one hand we have a desire to see some long-needed improvements to the Quay area yet we have an UNELECTED member of Government putting her two penneth in to oppose this scheme. Did she achieve anything when she was employed by Government as "Building Conservation Officer". Judging by her profile on the Tynwald website she appears to be another one in the Rob Callister mould with a string of letters after her name that she seems to think give her credibility. She needs to get into the real world - it is this sort of attitude that results in nothing getting done other than Government projects that end up as cock ups. Perhaps she should have got involved in the Promenade and Liverpool Ferry Terminal projects - her architectural expertise would have been invaluable.

  6. The latest instalment in the saga: ineo+368_638470-20220920101328 (judgments.im)
  7. I know - I have regular appointments and the reminders are very hit and miss. One of the clinics I attend has multiple patients with appointments at the same time but apparently "the system" only allows the staff to book one appointment per slot. The answer - "we will send you a text reminder but take no notice of the time the reminder shows - just turn up at the time we have booked." Again it is the simple things they don't seem to be able to get sorted out - it would take someone with a modicum of IT skills about 10 minutes to sort the appointments system out.
  8. I received a text reminder this morning for a hospital appointment later this week. Text is shown as from IOM_DHSC. They have not even got round to sorting out the simple system changes that are needed for the transition to Manx Care - what hope is there for major change?
  9. I think it depends on the type of Liquidation - winding up by the Court, Members Voluntary Liquidation or Creditors Voluntary Liquidation. I am pretty certain there is a legal requirement to have a meeting of Members and / or creditors annually on the anniversary of the commencement of the winding up.
  10. But doesn't this come back to the Zero Hours type contracts they are mostly on? As I understand it very few of the drivers are effectively full time permanent staff and can pick and choose where they work. I have heard stories about drivers working ion hospitality over the TT period because they were able to earn more per hour than they were paid on the busses. Without a full complement of permanent drivers how can they be rostered to provide full cover for the scheduled services?
  11. What Ashford doesn't seem to grasp is that although he put the documents forward for potential disclosure they were not all actually disclosed in the formal disclosure process.
  12. It appears to me that the disclosure process has been badly managed by the AG's team. Each person required to disclose documents should each have provided all of their documents to the AG's who should then have collated them. One person relying on another to disclose all correspondence between them just does not work and leads to omissions. It now appears that Magson may have effectively censored the disclosures - if this is the case hopefully the facts will be reported to the police who can lay appropriate charges and bring her back for a spot of long overdue justice. Identifying e-mails for potential disclosure can be a minefield but the Government IT guys should have been able to resurrect Ashies inbox and sent items in their entirety so that he could go through the list and identify what should or should not be disclosed. As for the number of e-mails sent / received the numbers, if true, are simply staggering. 28,000 e-mails received is 76 each and every day of the year. If each one takes 5 minutes to read that is over 6 hours of reading every day of the year. 13,000 e-mails sent is 35 each and every day. If each one takes 10 minutes to compose that is another nearly 6 hours per day. So in total he is possibly spending 13 hours each and every day reading or composing e-mails. No wonder Government is in a mess - there is no time for them to govern - blame it all on e-mails!!
  13. And one of them is the current "Manx Bard" - Culture Vannin and the Arts Council need to have a look at the selection process!! (2) The Manx Bard | Facebook
  14. So you can roll up profits free of tax until such time as they are distributed at which point they become taxable in the hands of the of the shareholders.
  15. No I am Not Mr D - happy to defer to your professional opinion if you would care to enlighten us.
