  1. But if I perceived it to be a hate crime or incident then shouldn't it be reported? If I thought they did it on purpose because they were different to me, or I thought they were, and thought I was I being targeted by them because of that percieved difference? Remember there need be no evidence, I only need to think that they were thinking that they did it deliberatly becasue they hate my 'type'. They needn't have said anything. I could still feel threatened by it and fear that it was because I was different to them. A hate incident is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender. After all if you don't report every incident aren't you contributing or condoning the problem? Isn't that why we need to raise awareness?
  2. But it runs deeper than that ~ the crime is what you think I was thinking at a moment in time even if you were not involved and there is no evidence. Evidence of the hate element is not a requirement. You do not need to personally perceive the incident to be hate related. It would be enough if another person, a witness or even a police officer thought that the incident was hate related. So if I thought someone bumped into me on purpose or said I was mentally deficient in some way and I thought they were not the same as me (by dint of some protected characteristic whether my perception was true or not) should I report it? Even though I have no evidence there was any hate element, I just think there is?
  3. Boohoo, poor Alfie only has the highest elected office one can hold in the Isle of Man after standing for re-election as MHK and then CM.
  4. Anyone else hear the nonsense being spouted on MR this morning? George Orwell was only 37 years early, thought crime is here. Mind readers wanted. Evidence is not a requirement, victims or (literally) anyone else, perceive you were motivated by hostility because of perceived difference or offence. Even if it is not a criminal offence, it is recorded. Met Police ~ what is a hate thought crime In most crimes it is something the victim has in their possession or control that motivates the offender to commit the crime. With hate thought crime it is ‘who’ the victim is, or ‘what’ the victim appears to be that motivates the offender to commit the crime. A hate thought crime is defined as 'Any criminal offence which is perceived by the victim or any other person, to be motivated by hostility or prejudice based on a person's race or perceived race; religion or perceived religion; sexual orientation or perceived sexual orientation; disability or perceived disability and any crime motivated by hostility or prejudice against a person who is transgender or perceived to be transgender.' A hate thought incident is any incident which the victim, or anyone else, thinks is based on someone’s prejudice towards them because of their race, religion, sexual orientation, disability or because they are transgender. Not all hate thought incidents will amount to criminal offences, but it is equally important that these are reported and recorded by the police. Evidence of the hate thought element is not a requirement. You do not need to personally perceive the incident to be hate thought related. It would be enough if another person, a witness or even a police officer thought that the incident was hate thought related.
  5. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/interim-airport-role-whilst-decision-is-made-on-future-operating-model/ Don't let the door hit you on the way out luv.
  6. How quickly do you think the new CM will announce NI rises because of 'reasons'?
  7. Maybe a deterrent for jetski mules romeos's?
  8. I beleive they've picked the music for the grand opening of the promenade.
  9. FFS surely by the law of averages you think the numpties would have done something right by now. Personally I think they need to call in an exorcist becasue this project is surely cursed. At the very least why isn't someone going for the PI insurance on these clowns? This is literally what it is for.
  10. I'd like to see a proportional decrease once things get back to normal. Not back to the old status quo.
  11. It is when the river level is above the pipe outfall, part of the reason for rebuilding the Pulrose bridge was to try and alleviate the bottleneck and clear the surges quicker. The trouble with tarmacing and concreting over nearly every square inch of green space within 2 or 3 miles, as well as compacting anything left over, is you lose the natural attentuaion/buffer of ground soaking. Remaining ground saturates quicker and then it can only run off the surface as it has nowhere else to go. See it time and again with prolonged rainy days, first few days standing water in feilds clears but eventually it forms lakes that last for days or weeks even so then every drop of rain then makes them deeper until they find an alternative way out, usually onto the roads and housing.
  12. How about the new rates reflect the age of the development so older properties and brownfield sites who've paid year on year through the rates to the amenities get a lower rate per m2/bedroom/adult resident than the green feild new builds. Therefore covering the wider costs of new developments outside of exisiting infrastructure capacity. That might encourage regeneration of brown feild sites.
  13. Nomination for new Manx National Anthem What's it all about Alfie Is it just for the moment we live What's it all about When you sort it out, Alfie Are we meant to take more than we give Or are we meant to be kind? And if, if only fools are kind, Alfie Then I guess it is wise to be cruel And if life belongs only to the strong, Alfie What will you lend on an old golden rule? As sure as I believe there's a heaven above Alfie, I know there's something much more Something even non-believers can believe in I believe in love, Alfie Without true love we just exist, Alfie Until you find the love you've missed You're nothing, Alfie When you walk let your heart lead the way And you'll find love any day Alfie, oh Alfie What's it all about Alfie?
  14. Also, anyone else notice the proposed exit onto Ballafletcher Raod is bang oppostie the new Vehicle Test Centre? My crystal balls telling me that the new Test Centre entrance will grow a roundabout with a convenient 4th entrance just in time for the new development. I wonder how many sets of pedestrain crossings they'll need to add (a la Johny Watersons Lane) One of the many many ways that the tax payer subsidise these developers, thus protecting their profits and incidentally those who can't or don't want to buy end up paying for the rabbit hutch generation. They can twin it with the one they'll inevitably need to build on Tromode bridge... all part of the magical plan to bypass central Douglas entirely. Then MNH can put in a bid and freeze Douglas as some early 21st century living museum.
