  1. Manx Care does stuff. I can see the need for their ceo to be here more than dhsc...
  2. The pipes are not coming to the isle of man. Its not going to mean cheap gas here. Itll be royalties *if* it ever happens.

    Thinking he'd be looked upon favourably by those mhks who'd done the hard yards getting re-elected was another.
  4. The more thats extracted the more there is on the market, typically meaning the cheaper it is, thereby slowing the necessary tip to renewables.
  5. He's now paid even more than before by the state to have these opinions and doesnt need to listen to so called experts on things his mind is made up on.
  6. Agree, we'd get royalties, irrespective of where it gets sent.
  7. The what aboutery with Azeem Rafiq is a complete smokescreen to the institutuional problems and culture. Necking voddy (if he was) as grown man by choice is different from being forced redwine as a teen (if that happened). Going to work and experiencing routine racism and such a deficient response incomparable to a private conversation. Itll keep the gammons happy though.
  8. Anyone who thinks this gas will be connected to the iom first and not to the uk is living in bullshit land. 1) The BGE interconnector is inward only to Ireland (and us). https://www.irishtimes.com/business/energy-and-resources/bord-gáis-networks-considers-200m-cost-of-interconnectors-1.1398051 2) Our market too small and storage costs too high even leaving aside need for new infrastructure at sea and on island to bring it to shore and land it into existing network. Question is: how serious are we about climate change? Only if all royalties are ring fenced to accelerate serious climate change investment, insulation and interconnection might there be a justifiable case. The last thing id want it for is investment into over big facilities (nobles) or as an alternative to long term sustainable public spending and decent level of direct taxation i.e rich pay more than they do at present. And by rich i mean capital as well as income.
  9. A statutory inquiry commissioned by Tynwald would be a dear do (qc chair?) compared to a Tynwald committee doing it.. PAC or a select committee will probably pick covid up when Tynwald appoints backbenchers and juan to those Committees this month or next. Ransom's evidence to PAC pre dissolution stands there ripe to be picked up. It may be the ET case gets heard before PAC hear more evidence. PAC - v. likely based on their own PR re publishing her evidence and dhsc response in the summer - wouldnt report or make reccs before the ET concluded.
  10. The people of Ramsey voted for him to sort dogshit and oppose the Marina. Alf chose him to also do strategy stuff for DHSC. Its a complete waste of time him personally signposting people. Mind you if Layer Cake is your guide to business let alone Ministerial duties im probably pissing in the wind trying to explain...
  11. Guernsey and Jersey ferry to UK is not really comparable in terms of frequency of service or price or drop off to a big city (liverpool) or tourist offering plus their Governments are in big time on air travel compared to IoM so no surprise on them figures in terms of % of routes i.e traffic rather than passengers if thats what the graph is.
  12. Not fit for purpose is anything under Greenhow's watch. Teflon.
  13. Why? Take it later you get paid more. There's people called actuaries do sums and that. If your argument is about using tax to keep pre retirement age people in work, isnt it steering people to stay in high paid jobs they dont want to be in and/or blocking careers of younger people?
  14. Do people want gas this winter at below cost or something?
  15. At least that statement's put me right. I did have an unshiftable image of Biffa Bacon from Viz setting his dog on someone with the immortal words 'Fuck him Knacka'.
  16. 1. Lizard 2. Sectioned 3. CRAYONS 4. Herbal Remedies 5. You bastards 6. Sheeple
  17. Bring LH and JE in now so when the inevitable real politik decisions have to be taken they either a) get grubby with CoMin or b) flounce and forever be perceived as the sniping bitter backbencher. Same happened with PK and KB and it pretty much finished both if them politically. RC doesnt seem to get that and/or the sensible idea that CoMin ought not to be a group think confirmatory place if all voices the same.
  18. We really should be getting more of the action.
  19. Incompetence would/should be capability not disciplinary. And I had you down as someone who knew a bit...
  20. Roy Hattersley - lard Stu Peters - gammon
  21. It can't be as bad as Brian pub cunt Stowell on studio 1. Face on him like a melted welly because his circle jerk buddy Willers got half the votes of Callister and Edge. Talking about roads, houses and pumping shit.
  22. Watching studio1 coverage and I can't stop thinking Barry Murphy is based on Barry Shitpeas off Screenwipe.
  23. Stu has opinions not policies.
  24. I went to primary school with ciapelli and he was a pompous prick at the age of 9. He's also not half as clever as he thinks. Ease congestion by building more car parking? Isn't congestion in rush hour caused by people driving rather than parking? Better off with incumbents in this case.
