  1. Is Peter Duke going it get the contract?
  2. Well thats really fucking useful. Thanks Bernard.
  3. A ceo doesnt control the elected representatives. Shes the head full time employee. That prick quirk will be throwing his weight with staff when his role as a commissioner should be deciding how many dog shit wardens there are, rather than taking issue with the amount of shit they pick up.

    TT 2018

    Maximum Michael Moyle's inquest judgment on events at the 26th in 2007 painted a pretty grim picture of the chief sector marshall and two dep chief sm's discharge of their duties. All v. experienced and had done it the same way for years and hopefully things have improved since then on governance. Its a hell of a responsibility for ttma and its senior on course people to maintain training for themselves and those who marshall and ensure the correct things are always being done by well meaning volunteers. I can well see how the logistics in the system leaves it open for human error irrespective of training People laugh at the armed cops going out practising / over-attending but imagine if you had team heads leading officers who knew how to shoot straight but didnt know each other or get systems or tactical training...
  5. Turton also sits on the employment tribunal as employee side nominee.
  6. There were fields of 90 riders + in the senior classic mgp not so long ago. Saturdays field was much lower and if you strip out those being paid to come then fields have halved.
  7. Hed want the races to go on = he would still race if it was someone else.
  8. Owing to budget pressures, lots of the nhs trusts wanted people off the book of employees but not in as locums or via agency. This set up was thought of as an answer.
  9. Must be cycling community penance for the bad PR about road closures for the GB series which the paper ran when john watty was on holiday
  10. Theres limited boat capacity. If you're the sort of ballbag for whom tt wouldnt be the same without an unrestricted one way mountain road then dont come. Theres plenty more to take your place who might not be as likely to close the road, fill a hospital bed, injure others or end up in a box with the inquest cost and bad PR that comes with a RTA death in TT.
  11. Quirk has got previous re harrassment https://www.judgments.im/content/J276.htm and also had an ET claim againt the Commissioners from when he was a dog shit warden https://www.judgments.im/content/ET 14-66 Christopher Michael Quirk v Onchan Commissioners.pdf
  12. 5% p.a. interest on £50million would be £2.5m p.a. 25,000 visitors coming ashore spending £100 each to generate that sum per year on a tt week spend methodology. The numbers alone dont seem to stack but i accept there's an infrastructure / future proofing issue in the longer term. GB cruises might be best market because of possibilty of follow up visit if one day stop is a shop window.
  13. The union have sat on their hands about the bullying allegations for 2 weeks. Last mtg at which alleged bullying occurred is 1 july. Only Cregeen being a dick in Tynwald has led them to raise an allegation about his conduct. Even Hooper seems to be saying them raising this allegation now isnt going to sort the pay dispute. And wtf is institutional bullying by one person? Fuck me if these union reps are anywhere near teaching. I still dislike Cregeen btw.
  14. Committee page here. They decide how big the troughs are and who gets salmon or fish fingers. http://www.tynwald.org.im/business/committee/emol/Pages/default.aspx
  15. Committee members are ex nurse Bettison, Rob Callister DfE member who thinks cruise ships are ace and Robertshaw who wants a big fuck off deep water berth to help out family business interests. You wont see them for shit when it comes to being accountable for any decision. And it sems theyre simply proposing an alternative policy rather than reviewing the success/failure of a policy. That might be the remit of the standing committees but doesnt it mean nothing will ever get done. A bit like the horsetrams where everyone had a view. Ultimately someone has to decide what to do and then get backing from tynwald and treasury/budget to allocate capital
