  1. Yeah - build a Tesco petrol station!

    King Of Mann

    His Majesty doesn't appear to have even registered his site with a .im domain name - how unpatriotic!
  4. Aiye, the usual Manx over reaction!
  5. I think this was planned, the road just kinda stops. It would make life a lot easier! As for the seagul, art will always cause debate... I welcome it, Douglas needs a HELL of a lot of money spending on it - although perhaps this should come from central government rather than Douglas rate payers. That said - the change in paving on the Quay REALLY bugs me

    Apparantly the Mill Shop will just be selling Habitat merchandise from the Autumn, if anyone is interested.

    So it opened down there, then closed?

    Unless I've missed something, the Habitat store has been a long time coming considering they were advertising for jobs 6 months ago. Or did I completly miss it down Tynwald Mills the other day and any PR surrounding its launch?
  9. Bring on the 17th act for promulgation this Thursday on Tynwald Hill - 'Public Health (Tabaco) Act 2006' Interesting to see the final act is to allow races to be held on the Billown Circuit on 27 May 2007 (why this requires an Act of Tynwald I don't know!?) - a law that was enacted and expired before prumulgation, now there's a constitutional quandry
  10. Even as a child you were never very good at knowing when to keep your trap shut. You don't seem to have learned a thing. Remove your post please. Beckett only asked a question... Cripes! Thanks Mupster, I'm actually astonished that it's been deleted. Certainly didn't mean to offend anyone. Whatever's happened it's a serious safety issue, I'm totally baffled as to what's wrong with discussing this - I certainly hope posts discussing RTAs in the future will be treated the same and deleted. Next the Police will be getting accused of being disrespectful for conducting an investigation and Adrian Earnshaw will be stoned for having held a press conference. As for Roxanne - what on earth are you going on about?
  11. But hey, lets have the parade anyway! Third headline in national news - shame it had to end like this
  12. And it's not cus someone has died! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/magazine/6670313.stm
  13. LOL - said the same thing @ work this arvo
  14. A let down as I'd hoped for a real improvement, but no worse really
  15. Call to tidy Island Posted on the 20 April 2007 20:38:44 The Chief Minister wants the Island tidied up ahead of this year's TT He's asking the Department of Local Government and the Department of Transport to write to local authorities to request a special effort to smarten Tony Brown says he wants to encourage everyone, including government through its agencies, to make sure the Island is at its best for the centenary TT period, and indeed for the summer beyond. http://www.manxradio.com/readItem.aspx?ID=...mp;cate=General
  16. You mean Dandara make good DOLLS houses. And what are these 'special' recycling bins?!
  17. Douglas is pretty awful, but shite gets thrown up during economic decline, and when the recovery starts, and all the architecture is shite, its easy to gert planning permission to throw more of the same up! There was also an oil spill outside the Court House at lunch time - a site of many an exciting news event as ever!
  18. That's in your opinion. I like it lots. I find it most agreeable. I DON'T like drinking very much though - it seems to be a factor in most of the crime we see reported, and first and foremost that's why I think it should be banned. See - I'm getting the hang of this "I don't enjoy it so I want to stop anyone else enjoying it" way of thinking. Fear not, I'm sure it'll be next Secondary smoke often makes me want to spew, it makes me cough and my eyes water and can often give me a headache. I know the first symptom, taken to fruition could be used as proof of the effects of secondary smoking, but forcing my vomit upon others would be most anti-social (wouldn't you say?).
  19. Sod the old Courthouse - when are they going to repaint the 'new' one?! Seriously though, hope they do get it done, a new coffee shop/bar/resturant would be great.
  20. So campaign for a total ban on tobacco...and find some real (rather than Thought Police) evidence that secondary exposure to cigarette smoke 'poisons' people. In a way that aerosols, perfumes, cooking, open fires, air pollution, natural airborne stuff doesn't. And before you cite Roy Castle, remember that lungs aren't designed to be pressurised and used like a trumpet player does either. Smoking is just plain unpleasant - that's first and foremost why it should be banned.
  21. And why the Dept of Tourism and Leisure is in charge of the buses, rather than the Dept of Transport. And why the Dept of Transport is in charge of the sewers... etc... lol glad to see I;m not the only one that has a chuckle at department names and their often unrelated departmental responsibilities
