  1. I put this to Dazza and he told me that 'this was one cake he didn't have a bite of'. It is most lilkley that DOLGE supplied the Clerk of Works for this job, so maybe you should direct your questions in that direction.
  2. No it is not OK, the point is yet again Crumlins post was incorect
  3. You are of course making the assumption that it is the residents of the island that supply all the governments money. This is most definitely not the case as the largest income for the government is undoubtedly the tax paid by companies (both island based and off shore). It would be interesting to know the actual cost to us menial workers and payers of tax, maybe you could investigate this Rog and give us real figures instead of the sensational grabbing amounts you quote above. This is definatley not the case. This waste is treated or partially treated. The only raw human
  4. It does seem a lenient sentence, and doesn't really support the saying 'crime doesn't pay'. Well it seems that it does pay(sometimes), 6 months (reduced to 3 if he keeps his head down) for £100,00 doesn't seem to bad to me. Also he has been on full pay since this was identified and remains on full pay whilst in Prison. I am sure the courts have guidelines that they follow and that we are not aware of the full facts and any mitigation that was put forward, but it doesn't seem to be much of a deterrent having such a short sentence.

    If it was a private road and owned by him and there was no rights of vehicular access by others, then yes it would be OK for him to put what he wants across the road. So long as he ensures adequate signage is visible warning others of the wire and also advising them that it is private land. Back to the point though, it is after all his land and all he wants is his privacy, not too much to ask is it. Geo
  6. Ok Then About time. All citizens of this island have the right to legal representation in our courts, and if they can't afford it it should be made available to them. Definitely good value. Very good value. Its easy for cash run companies to filter funds and not pay the tax or VAT they should so anything that ensures these companies - individuals pay their way is good value. Still unsure on this one, but one thing for certain the system needs a revamp. Don't really care what he is called, I think the government should get on with discussing things that matter instead of wasting
  7. In total agreement, apart from the 13 year old analogy which is a bit crude to say the least. A call to cime stoppers may sort out the brush hands problem. Geo

    More Over Spending

    They are paid to do a job, and I too have had plenty of run ins with the IOMEF, but at the end of the day they have to take care of all the members not just one. They have made many inprovements to the construction industry, ie Death in service benifit, holiday pay, sick pay, health and safety, in fact they have taken the industry out of the dark ages something the DTI could not do the last time they ran the scheme. Its my opinion that if the DTI take over the running of the approved contractors it would do nothing but harm to the industry. I can see it in future forum topics= DTI minister in
  9. To see if this is true, count the fingers on each hand. If i'ts six, they're family and so would be allowed to just help out. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> No they are not, they are taking money of punters who are having a gable and also without supervision. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I think that one went right over your head FCMR, good post sarahc

    Julia Ashby Smyth is a great artist Julia Ashby Smyth pics on Manxman not sure how to contact her, maybe the phone book will give a clue.
  12. Looking at the map it appears that the Laxey Glen Gardens Pavillion is not being used this year. Any idea why it's not being used ?

    It would appear, having read the notice hanging from his house, the owner of the Erin Brae is in the process of being prosecuted for replacing his sliding sash timber windows with uPVC casement windows to his second floor. Its about time planning started to flex their muscles and get a grip, its always going to be hard for the ones they make an example off.

    Radon Discussion

    Yes test are carried out on Island, but there again it depends on which proffesionals you are employing. I have been involved in four large projects recently that I know radon testing was carried out at the site investigation stage. If you are concerened about radon buy yourself a test kit or contact either an architect or surveyor whom can advise you further. Radon is also covered in the Building Regulations. Geo
  15. Well said and a very very solid point. Geo
  16. Upgrade seems up and running tonight. Speed test results show speed of 272000kbps - hope the copper wire can take the strain. Geo

    Was contacted by phone first to arrange a suitable time for someone to call. I took part last week, took 20 mins to complete. Quite happy to be involved in this as I don’t drink allot (less than five units a month) and as such helps counter the belief that we are seventy thousand xxxx heads clinging to a rock. Having carried out surveys at university I know how hard it is to get a good return and also to get a good sample population. Geo
  18. The Time Travelors Wife was a great read. I dont normaly go for a soppy story but this book can be taken in many ways covering many genres. Have just started Manx Murders. Good idea 'book club' count me in Geo
