  1. Battle? It's more like a bun fight at a WI coffee morning. Even then 'fight' may be a tad much.
  2. Exactly. We're all just collateral damage to them.

    The Sainsbury's stuff in Shoprite is generally 20 - 30% more than the price of the item in Sainsbury's (from my own experience). The Tesco price match is also a joke as they only compare prices to the full RRP in Tesco and don't account for Tesco offers.
  4. Screw the Unions but screw the Government too. There are massive cunts in the Unions and massive cunts in the Government. The people being fucked over are the GMP who are just trying to get by. Although I am surprised we haven't seen out posties, bus drivers and other Government workers on strike yet. How have they avoided that? The solution lies in the middle. Not a 30%pay rise a per union demands, but a negotiate C.11% pay rise.
  5. All sounds a bit Royston Vasey, but you would probably like that.

    Still better than Shoprite fruit and veg.
  7. Now they just leave them in place running all weekend while no work takes place.
  8. Remember when all that copper wire was lifted from the tracks as they just left it there?

    Co-op were offering delivery in Douglas/Onchan/Braddan when the new Crosby store opened. Haven't tried recently but I could never find a slot. Shoprite would probably do ok with online orders but I would be wary about the shelf life of things from them.
  10. I've got a friend in Iran who does a great line of suicide drones. That would stop the dogs.

    Occado would clean up here. Just look how popular Tesco slots are!

    Wasn't it because the lift they used for it broke?

    No actually! Fella in the Prospect the other evening.
  14. How did we get from lycra bandits to assisted dying on the Active Travel™️ thread?

    Not a business closing, but a rumour doing the rounds today is that M&S have had management over looking at plans to refurbish the store with a much bigger food hall. It would make sense - parts of the store are looking a bit shabby now.

    This was many moons ago in a place that may or may not have been the Castle Mona.

    I can almost see the appeal! If it was a choice between spending your Saturday night watching Sandra from accounts throwing up after a few too many babychams while pervy Pete from HR ogles the new interns*.... or an hour getting a Big Mac and a milkshake after work then I would pick the latter. *events are real but names have been changed to protect the guilty parties.
  18. They're still employing the same staff to collect the same bins using the same vehicles. All it does is create a vermin problem (longys rather than councillors).
  19. Do you get a lot of requests like that?
  20. Does anyone know how to pull a sharp U-turn in a bin lorry? Asking for Frank.
  21. He does seem to have a fondness for you.
  22. I'm inclined to agree. But we shouldn't let this charade distracted from the real issue. The weekly bin collections need to be restored.
  23. This is a lot older than I thought.
  24. Is this true? Wonder what @Josemwill make of it! those are quite some claims. Maybe now is a good time to publish the images along with the story of how they came to be? We don't have much left in local news as we hurtle towards the arse end of another political year on the rock. Save for Dr. Al pointing out just how fucked the public finances are.
