  1. Which routes is he going to magic them from?
  2. My Doi bloke says Douglas to Airport is the only bit of the service that runs a profit. The rest doesnt. Personally i dont think its a good service and not bad vfm. The money is mainly wages not profit like stagevoach etc across. Its much better nowadays.
  3. From end of September... https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/doi-unveils-proposals-for-kirk-michael-road-improvements/
  4. Ive not got that much of a problem with paid for social media as long as its declsred as an expense. Its probably better than grandstanding in tynwald at taxpayers expense asking, quite often, dogshit questions. Is it any more of an advantage than being backed by a party with competent volunteers, councillors and officials who are all 'on message'? Or a union?
  5. S. 13 is manx equivalent of a s. 106. Estate developments over 8 units condition in ftb provision or contribution to provide off site plus open space etc.
  6. Well thats really fucking useful. Thanks Bernard.
  7. 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.

    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 irrespe
  9. Turton also sits on the employment tribunal as employee side nominee.
  10. 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.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. 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
  17. 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 th
  18. He sounded like the thick headed biff he is.

    I can see why the acu would want it here ACU indemnity to marshals assocaiation based in iom. Most witnesses based in iom. Different protocols on disclosure and litigation funding Judicial familiarity (new deemster needham used to be coroner of inquests) with statute empowered closed roads racing
  20. I rode in and out along peel rd today and had three near misses, two of which were cycle lane related i.e car / ped crossing because the cars had stopped and not looking for bikes. The other was just shit driving. I did also see some prick on a mountain bike running a red light. Which wasnt me.
  21. Going back to the original post... Even if the dastardly cyclist had been insured, that insurer would, after paying out, have chased the poor car driver (or his insurer). Still, that wouldnt fit the agenda although its no great surprise to me that someone so anti-bike doesnt understand how insurance works.
  22. Thats why Rob is grandstanding re rent increases for public sector and/or deficiency payments and/or Onchan commissioners rents (even though theyre the only ones who count their sheltered accom separate). The person with responsibilty for LA housing in DoI? Why, his likely rival next time up, the other mhk for Onchan, Mrs Edge.
  23. What this boils down to is that onchan mhks dont have anything to do with bins and dogshit in lakeside (garff). The sooner our supposed national politicians stopped dicking around with local authority matters and questioning operational matters the better.
