    TT Access Road

    It’s just a shame some of that bottomless budget couldn’t be spent on roads that need sorting, or doing a decent job of the ones they do. I’m sure if a private contractor left Governors Road and Royal Avenue in Onchan in the state they have, they’d soon soon have something say about it!!

    Shoprite, the last straw!

    A laudable approach from Shoprite to the plastic bag issue, especially if everybody’s 5p per bag is going to a local charity (look forward to seeing news of the donation/s); but why do they feel the need to add a polystyrene tray & plastic wrap to meat that is already vacuum packed & sealed?!

    Bushy's To Defend.....

    Common sense prevails??!! http://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/agreement-reached-between-ded-and-bushys/ Manx Radio understands an agreement has been reached between the Department of Economic Development and Bushy's Brewery over the use of the initials "TT". It's being termed a "co-existence" agreement. More to follow - waiting for a press release from IOM Government.

    Undemocratic Farce !

    Eighth vote - the worry of having to come back for another ballot during the summer break obviously proved too much for some One nomination for Anderson, who is elected with 14 votes So two more bye-elections for the House Of Keys to look forward too!!

    Seventh vote - Braidwood & Anderson agreed between them that only one name at a time be put before the House of Keys Braidwood first Then if he is not elected Anderson next No other nominations at this stage And the outcome - 12 votes for Braidwood So just Anderson being nominated for vote number 8
