    I'd say we dodged a bullet by avoiding the potential for such a sensitive soul from being elected to House of Keys. I actually want to see MHKs with a bit of fight and not be afraid to say what needs to be said.

    I’d be fairly confident that the writer was either the Editor of one of his chums. He seems to have a real problem with anonymous accounts despite the rather ludicrous ones that seem to populate his own website several of whom sound remarkably like him.

    Lorem Ipsum, Random words used in newspaper page mock ups, placeholder text, are not something I come across every day.

    IoM Today has started using them on their FB page so visitors can’t click on the front page image, enlarge, and read the main stories. Makes them buy or subscribe.

    This week its in Latin, German, Danish, French, Polish and Irish. 

    But it’s not random. Each language paragraph says the same. “ People who post on internet sites are stupid, and shouldn’t be allowed to vote”

    So now we know what the editor and proprietors think of us.

    I just quickly searched to see if a similar topic had been covered before I posted this and it appears that it has and that he’s clearly at it again. The irony of the newspaper Editor giving such prominent column space to an anonymous letter writer who has written a letter about anonymous trolls who apparently completely ruin his enjoyment of local politics coverage. Is there such a thing as a double irony? I don’t like people posting all this anonymous stuff, but please Mr Editor don’t put my name to these views in the paper when you publish my letter! If the Editor didn’t write it himself that is!

    Mr Roboto your 'laughing' reaction is quite horrific to be honest - how can you find death and long term illness amusing is beyond me. I sincerely hope you do not contract this disease despite your lack of respect for those whose lives have been lost/damaged by it.

    You clearly take the content of what you post far too seriously. There seem to be a lot like that round here as well. You’re definitely another Ballaugh / Ramsey Covid Coven member just from style alone. Maybe you’d like to declare your qualifications in virology or medicine if you attach so much significance to your opinion on what Dr Ewart should be doing. Thanks.

    But its not quite balanced yet.... and that's the issue.. Dr Ewart is entrenched in all things UK .... 

    In your opinion, in your opinion, in your opinion FFS. Another online virologist who clearly knows better than all those qualified people running the show.

    Might be some mileage in rounding all these doomsayers up & throwing them in the Comis at their expense until they think it’s safe to come out.


    Could you imagine the massive game of covid “top trumps” they’d all have in the Comis if they were locked up together - who can find on the scariest variant / covid statistics / death numbers etc etc and post them on social media to try to scare others shitless with?

    I am sad that so many people cannot see that this is more than just an inconvenience.  I am not saying stay in lockdown but we need to be confident the Gov is giving is the best info so that we can ALL make informed choices in relation to our OWN risk.

    Mass unemployment, business collapses and spiraling debt is more than just an inconvenience, suicide and mental health issues are more than just an inconvenience. Not getting treated for cancer because the healthcare system is unnecessarily over reacting is not just inconvenient. Elderly people not being able to see their families for what may be the last time is not just an inconvenience. Missing loved ones funerals, and / or last months etc etc is not just an inconvenience. Just stop talking crap and scaremongering. We’re opening up. If you don’t like it get a shovel, dig a hole, get in it and stick a large tarpaulin over yourself until the end of the world arrives.

    Jesus, 24 hours later and its the same old same old. I'm hanging on for page 2200 but then I reckon the thread has run its course.

    You mean that you still have to listen to alternative views from other people? How sad for you.

    The hysterical hyperbole peddling that implies certain people will be sacrificial lambs to allow the rest of the population to go about its everyday business, is just that, hysterical hyperbole. 

    The Doom Coven has a particular talent for hyperbole then persistently claim that the hyperbole comes from others. I imagine in a few years when covid is just a distant memory they might look back on their posts here and realize that a lot of them totally went over the edge and lost the plot in their tunnel vision of telling everyone else (including government) what they should do.

    Listening to PK or Cambon and the other coven members it’s like receiving practical covid advice from Colonel Kurtz in Apocalypse Now. I just wonder how many non believers ears they’re each wearing on a string around their necks as they pound away at the keyboard.

    My £50 says we're all going to die. Any takers?

    The thing is you should not want to die an avoidable death through stupidity.

    But each to their own of course...

    What on earth is an avoidable death? You could get hit by a bus tomorrow or die of a heart attack running for one. Do you want government to ban all buses on that basis just in case it happens? Honestly you accuse others of hyperbole and yet you make the most outrageously incorrect over statements time and time again in what honestly just sounds like a deep seated desire to transmit your own paranoia onto other people via osmosis. The one thing people like you seem to really fear is a return to a normal life as some perhaps they think they’ve got power over other people for one time in their lives still by continually trying to scare other idiots half to death with their hysteria and half baked covid stories.

    Government is taking away the power from people like you to spread your fear. The rules are going or have gone and the borders will be fully opening very soon whether you like it or agree with it or not. And screwed up irresponsible people like you and others will ultimately be found responsible for an awful lot of suicides and mental health issues in others by using social media to spread your obsessional fear mongering shit.

    Because as we all know the "Kent variant" went through the UK like a dose of salts tipping the country into yet another lockdown

    Oh yes the Kent variant too ...... we’re all going to doubly die.

    "the mass imprisonments" indeed.

    The hyperbole seems to be ramping up in direct proportion to the (imho over simplified) expectation.

    As India have found to their cost opening up thinking all is well is a literally fatal mistake.

    Oh no I conjured up the forums Genie of Doom again. I don’t think 60 people thrown in prison (which is what has been reported) is hyperbole to be honest. It’s a huge number of people and it happened under emergency covid laws. 

    On India again ........ more doom ...... yes we’re all going to die. I really believe you.

    Brilliant post. That's a perspective that most don't get. The 'spat' is an embarrassment but in the overall context of our fight with the virus its insignificant. 

    The cult of Rachel is quite amusing really. I think the cult members should definitely put up big Wicker Rachel’s on common land and worship them to keep them safe from harm as it’s all they’re effectively doing on social media anyway. It was a very inglorious moment for government amongst a series of inglorious moments government has had in relation to its covid response. But to quote Andy Warhol she’s had her 15 minutes of fame. There’s much worse been done in the last 15 months. Particularly the mass imprisonments and other completely out of control Lockdown 1 behaviours which the average covid-head Rachel supporter was literally cheering and baying at like demented idiots.

    i think it’s the same with anything though it’s about being respectful, I’d rather someone openly have a joint with their window open then attempt to hotbox the room and stink an apartment block out (Spectrum Apartments anyone!?!)

    The fact is that in the last year reports of not wearing a mask or not adequately distancing yourself from yourself in your own garden have been prioritized higher than openly being caught using recreational drugs in public.

    Have you not read tomorrow's Village Newsletter?

    No, I’m guessing its going to pop through my letterbox any day now and tell me that I’m going to die in a horrible way if we don’t all lockdown until at least 2028 and erect a statue to Rachel Glover that we can all dance around and offer treats to the Gods with ASAP in order to save ourselves.

    (No, I don't wear a mask anymore and refused to shop last week when they asked for personal details for track and trace. From being led by the nose by the law and threat of prison to now letting it all hang out may need some time for people to make some slight adjustments. I am desperate to get to UK to see family).

    The situation we have is pretty clear to most people. It’s not really that hard to work out that what government is trying to do is uncondition people from being the mindless zombies hanging on the Ashy’s every word as gospel that they have been in the last 15 months. But it seems that a lot of people seem to quite like being mindless zombies and simply can’t adapt to living in the real world anymore. It’s about assessing your own risks and not listening to a load of pricks on Twitter or Facebook crying as someone was seen not wearing a mask while driving their own car.

    It’s simply time for many people to accept that they aren’t virologists or covid experts and that life itself presents risks that governments can’t manage for us. And equally that going crying to the police every 10 minutes because you see things you don’t like doesn’t cut any mustard anymore. On that basis lots of people must feel really dis-empowered too as a focus on policing draconian laws has vicariously given some the power to be right twats to other people in the last year just because they can.

    Some of the doomers are retired / ex professionals.   They are, of course, perfectly entitled to express their views, but it's a bit rich when some of them are sitting back on fat pensions advocating permanent lockdown and the consequent income fall for others ............... 

    Baby-doomers .... sat on their capacious pensions having sucked the wealth out of the system for the last 50 years who expect their children and grandchildren to stay locked up forever just because it suits their end of the world mindset. There a fair number on here too.

    Their lives must be fucking miserable like.

    It’s like some sort of a Covid love in.

    It’s the usual Kirk Michael, Ramsey and Port Erin pant wetting circle of covid ‘experts’. Very similar to a lot of the aggravated scaremongering doom-foretelling guff on here too.

    I have never seen Bonzo Slater but imagine I'd see him approaching, the one with the raincloud over his head!

    I imagine he wears a bow tie. 

    I have to say I listened to Josem on Manx Radio this evening and it seems that IOM politics very own Dr Poo has regenerated into some weird composite of Peter Karran and Rolf Harris this time around.

    The only one I ever had a DPF issue with was the only automatic and my wife drove it (slowly) on short runs

    A re-map and a DPF delete is the solution. Over lockdown I believe lower use of diesels has generated a lot of money for garages at around £350 to £400 for a DPF re-charge.
