Do they have English Grammar evening classes at the UCM?

I am getting more positive about the deckchair shuffle, at least you can understand the weather forecast now none of the lot from the met office could speak clearly, one of them sounded as if he was speaking from the moon, another , bless, had an accent that was indecipherable, and the girl spent more time chatting the presenter up than reading the forecast so that is a great improvement.

I don't know Dan but I've had the very occasional Twitter chat with him

Seems like a good guy to me, recognises what is wrong & what is right I think

Yep - keeping his wife in the slot to 3pm so she can make school pick up whilst he signs the salary cheques - perfect

A pro-life activist has defended the decision to protest outside UCM, claiming they wanted to stem an intellectual debate on the matter.

Yet more half-interested, non-edited semi-literacy from the Manx Radio News team. 

Maybe Manx Radio was reporting on what they meant rather than what they said. ^_^

It really is both embarrassing and bloody irritating isn’t it?

Sustaining and reinvigorating the national broadcaster for the 21st century appears to mean 'reflecting the island's culture back to itself' by expanding prime air time for the 'wall-to-wall Brindley' broadcasting system

Contrast with the new, 21st century, vision for RTÉ: 

"As a small country, Ireland needs a media organisation that has the scale and resources to guarantee a strong and distinctive Irish voice and Irish perspective on the world; a voice that is accessible to all across different media, which articulates Irish stories, relays Irish experiences and allows for national public debate and conversation. We need a media organisation that addresses, as its priority, the challenges facing this society and this country. Above all, I believe we need a media service that does all of these things but is accountable, not to shareholders, individuals or the government of the day, but to the public. This is the ultimate promise of RTÉ."

The jock was tremendous. Especially if the forecast was miserable. As for the girl, it seemed more as of she was politely fending the presenter off than chatting him up

Great news for 3FM! 

 

The latest figures show that Manx Radio lost over 3% of it listeners from Q3 2018 and Q3 2019. The downward spiral continues. 

Strong evidence that MR needs more money from the taxpayer to win back listeners.

Think Ireland (don't know if it's RTE themselves) do pay the BBC to carry their programming, but I believe they get it for less per head then we do as compulsory licence fee payers

Stand to be corrected!

They've just been given an extra £100,000

Don't know what the point is in funding them at all if they're not to promote Manx culture/perspective
