    TT 2022 ??

    So, knowing Ramsey Bakery had closed down, you knew he had to travel to uk for the loaf. You only gave him the money for a "one way" ticket. Not even the money for the loaf! Harsh! What did he do wrong?
  2. The problem is governments world wide have no wish to change. If they did, they would make all public transport free immediately, and set in place legislation that would promote cheap, easy fixes to lower CO2 output. But, no! They will continually promote and put up petrol and oil prices, in the name of "going green", whilst receiving a massive revenues in tax. They want you to buy an over priced electric car. Again, massive tax revenue. Ridiculously priced ground source heat pumps and other obscenely expensive heating systems, where insulation and appropriate clothing are cheap. Climate is changing. Always has, always will. Fraud? No. However, It is now the world's biggest industry.

    Same on a rally suit. Name, blood type, next of kin.

    It is estimated that 10 people die every year training for the London marathon. One or two die during or immediately after the event. Sometimes they get a mention. No call to ban the marathon.
  5. I said ages ago that if you charge for the tests, people won't bother and the whole issue of Covid will go away. It will be treated as another cold, as it probably should have been from the get go.
  6. I think the taxation system requires an overhaul. For example, if someone over 65 continues to work, they no longer pay national insurance. Why? Why are our national insurance rates lower than uk? Pensions should not be means tested. If someone has been prudent enough to save for retirement, why should they be penalised? Those who have accrued millions over a lifetime will be paying tax that make any state pension a drop in the ocean.,
  7. You really are childish. Are you still at school?
  8. WTF - if you don't stop using that Completely Unnecessary Nonsensical Term, I will report you and get you banned. If you cannot express yourself without profanity, don't express yourself at all!

    Nice one, Two-lane. Much has changed in the intervening six years , though.
  10. I had that. It was brilliant!
  11. £50,000 a month? Seriously? £1,666 per day from a handful of flights, where most people are picked up or dropped off? No chance.
  12. Not quite what Observer said, but it is usually transmitted during sex. It takes up to 21 days to manifest itself. Lasts about 3 weeks. Condoms don't stop it
  13. Yes, it works out something like this: fees taken from parking £60,000 p.a. Cost of RingGo, £4,000 p.a. Admin £10,000 p.a. Attendants x 3, £90,000 p.a. Net loss £44,000 p.a. That is being generous. Should just leave it as free parking.
  14. Interestingly, since this thread began last November, the value of the potential yield from the gas field has more than tripled.
  15. 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!
  16. 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.
  17. 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.

    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.

    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.

    TT 2022 ??

    There had been a fatality and police needed to attend.
  22. Women lived longer because they retired earlier / pension at 60. That is also equalising, lowering the state pension burden.
  23. I thought it was the Tynwald Whole Area Termination System that was in charge of this?
  24. Sounds to me like the solution has already been chosen, probably by a child, and is having to be defended!
