  1. I think a lot of news coverage is indeed piss poor. Some investigative journalism would soon turn things around. With the way the Government is run and recent scadals, you're right, why is the paper full of crap? However surely in the first instance this would point to a crap paper, not a lack of news or public interest stories that are out there for the taking!
  2. Less CGI, more bricks and mortar!
  3. With the low usage what else is there to do in there apart from eat?! Then again if they improved the food vastly who knows, some cash might go thru the til! I say give it to Costa or someone.
  4. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/world/europe/is...man/4831672.stm It's about time, the 'lounge' has not aged well!
  5. http://www.bbc.co.uk/pressoffice/pressrele...isleofman.shtml Bout blumin time - the beeb should just run MR as BBC Radio Isle of Man or something. Our 'Where I Live' section on the BBC still pales in comparison to Jersey and Guernsey's, so good news, but still lots to do.
  6. Well it's now March 2006, still no branding announced. In fact the website doesn't seem to have been updated since September last year... http://www.gov.im/cso/branding/pr.xml
  7. Some customers will get up to 8Mbps as standard! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/technology/4773880.stm Come on Manx Telecom - what happened to leading the way? That speed is certainly required to act as value for money for the current broadband prices here.

    I was holding out for Primark for bargain basement socks!
  10. I'm suprised that the UK Government and UK press haven't jumped on this. It's times like this one has to be grateful that we're a Crown Dependency, ready to be put straight when needed!
  11. As shocking as it sound I think Gilbey was a much better MHK. Aint seen Anderson once since he got elected, and doubt we will until he comes knocking for a vote.

    I hate to say it but write to your MHK - it's an election year, and make sure they don't forget it!
  13. I'd love to have seen the Aquadrome empty - that place was truly scary!
  14. We may still all need to gang together with our paint brushes - the street furniture certainly needs a touch up, and has done for about the past 2 years!

    I think it's a bit unfair on the 18-20 year olds. Don't know why this form of discrimination is more acceptable than any other.
  16. The scaffolding is down, and I really REALLY was expecting something more! They've still got white painted bricked up windows?!
  17. Maybe it's time for an Election 2006 forum?
  18. Looks like EuroManx are advertising on Border - is this a first for the Isle of Man?
  19. I wonder when we'll get to see a cool little model. Were no details given of what they're planning?
  20. Spookily enough there's an update in the Examiner. Apart from the 700 people they've surveyed on the short-listed 'brands' we don't get a peak until Tynwald has seen it in March. Although I presume they mean CoMin, not Tynwald.
  21. Will you be posting a copy on the Board?
  22. I'd suggest MR stop wasting their money - I don't recall hearing it.
