  1. Barlow

    Firm closing

    "Well into the evenings" becomes "well into the night" becomes "well into the morning" as has been found at Jacks and 1886 with their 3:30am weekend licences.
  2. Who in their right mind? Every single one of them. This is all about how to run and make lots of wonga from being a tax haven. Run 'trusts' etc. Have laws and judiciary that are behind the aspiration. That sort of thing. Of which, Isle of Man is king or thereabouts.
  3. If you have ever been in Tynwald/House of Keys, you will observe the 2 or 3 messengers who flit about the place passing notes between members. On request they do also keep the members topped up with water and lemon juice too, which I suppose is a task that cannot be done with an iPhone.
  4. I was sat in the public gallery a few years ago. It was at a time when we used to pay our bills by cheque, I saw an MHK busy doing those niggling jobs like paying his bills. He had a pile of them. Once he cleared that up he started reading the new TT programme. I was disgusted. I was in the public gallery because I had concerns and was interested in the Tynwald session and what our politicians had to say. I wanted to shout at him "if you're not interested, get out and let someone do the job who is".
  5. Manx Radio: Douglas assault leaves 61-year-old with serious injuries
  6. Indeed. The 'justice system' did little to help. A millionaire's daddy's boy got off with a thousand pound or so fine. The Isle of Man, where you can, buy just about anybody
  7. The whole sorry case of Hillberry. And how to get away with it. Pre Derek days?
  8. Good There's also: Very good Excellent Decent and honest, would never tell a lie to a member of the public.
  9. The event has come a long way and next year they should hold it in some downtown speakeasy.
  10. What's he going to do? Drink tea and hand out the awards? That's about what he did for his years on the Isle of Man.
  11. Whatever, but the last time I looked it wasn't outdated. If the law is so "outdated" - accordingly to you, stoners and such others - then it will be easily changed. And if not why not? (Genuine question).
  12. I appreciate what you say. My point here is that we are treading on dodgy ground when our lawmakers give even further free rein to the police to decide which laws to enforce and when. And most importantly to who. So, legalise cannabis. It's that simple. Especially if the police don't have the resources or can't be arsed.
  13. Possession and use of cannabis is against the law. It seems that our Gary is deciding what laws to enforce. I'm sure you will be perfectly ok with that, and many of your ilk. I wonder how long would it take for pot heads to start whinging about "a police state" if the Chief Constable took it into his own hands on other matters what laws to enforce. The situation is perfectly simple. Change the law or keep it as it is. That is how our society is supposed to work.
