  1. Interestingly, since this thread began last November, the value of the potential yield from the gas field has more than tripled.
  2. News today is that they are postponing the charging so that public opinion can be taken into account before Ringo is introduced. So it is going ahead anyway. My advice is vote with your feet. Don't use it. By the way, it is funny how the barriers at the staff parking lot are always working perfectly!
  3. This is correct. I was talking to a driver that I know a few days ago. He said most drivers are on zero hour contracts and called in on an as and when basis. If it is a nice day, they cannot be bothered. Wait until TT. That will be interesting.
  4. Because it is basically free. One part of government paying a different part of government is effectively an accounting exercise. However, if they paid Tours, we are told by government that every £1.00 spent in the community is worth £1.85 in reality.

    TT 2022 ??

    Training is a wonderful thing. However, until there is a real situation, nobody knows how anyone will react. I am sure, with the mess to clear up, traumatised spectators, traumatised novice marshalls and other people, racers wishing to return to the grandstand were low on the priority list.

    TT 2022 ??

    I remember the day well. Bad crash. Fatality. Road would not be opened before midnight. Manx Radio announced that riders would be returning to the grandstand in the opposite direction. 12-15 riders decided that the MR announcement was their instruction to go back. Marshalls at Sulby red flagged them . Most stopped , but a few carried on. The Mercer crash followed. They are professional racers. They knew that they would be escorted back. The marshalls at the incident were probably extremely shocked by the crash. Marshalls at Sulby tried to stop them.

    Basically, yes. It may have been a single vehicle crash, but he died. That becomes a police matter.

    There had been a fatality and police needed to attend.
  9. Women lived longer because they retired earlier / pension at 60. That is also equalising, lowering the state pension burden.
  10. I thought it was the Tynwald Whole Area Termination System that was in charge of this?
  11. Sounds to me like the solution has already been chosen, probably by a child, and is having to be defended!
  12. Southern 100, Tynwald day and Irish bank holidays mean higher prices.
  13. Quite a few in that bracket, such as Robinsons.
  14. This is correct. The companies who make coin and note machines don't make machines just for England, or pound notes. They are universal and it takes about ten minutes per note/coin to program. They can do what they want with the parking. If it is app based, I won't be using it. I don't use online payments from my phone. That is where the majority of fraud is at the moment. Best avoided.
