In the current circumstances, really? I have not seen my mother, who is in a nursing home, for over 2 months, I get that and comply. I could not take my friend, who cannot drive, shopping  e

I am delighted to announce that I will be returning to Manx Radio’s Late Show on Wednesday 1st July. This follows a three week suspension after complaints were lodged against me for comments made

Information Notice.pdf Not sure if the PDF link will work, but this is the official word. To everyone on here who has supported me, thank you sincerely. To my many detractors, have a nice day.

You were forever on it , talk about biting the hand that feeds.

Lols. I was the press officer. Sort of went with the job.

Although I disagreed with some of the advice, DF was always a good guest on Mannin Line - Talking Heads as it was then.

We had some good discussions. The public had a chance to probe and argue. Enjoyed it.

Omnipresent he was. Coppers should be seen and not heard. They are not in charge of us.

And I never purported to be. For me, it was about creating less grieving mums by improving awareness about road safety.

Fair enough on the road safety issue , who could argue with that. But you and most coppers on the radio come across as patronizing , I don’t always think people should have done whatever but provided it is legal who is to judge. You lot clearly always do. That’s why I and many other members ‘ of the great Manx Public’ ( most of whom are not Manx) don’t trust coppers.

I think there's a legal requirement for government notices to be published in the press? I can't see that changing much very soon.

Planning Notices went online only years ago, which I thought was a bad move considering there are still many who still aren't online. Also I was disappointed when the Divorce Notices stopped being published - they were great skeet!

Thanks for the feedback. 

 Cops don’t judge, that is for the beak. They uphold and apply the law, and maintain their duty to protect life. It’s a shitty job, but someone has to do it. 

What alternative do you propose?

Especially when the co-respondent was named. The divorce cases were dealt with by deemsters, along with such as driving offences.

That was when deemsters actually did some fucking work for their wedge, but that is perhaps another story.

It was a caller called Andy. He was saying Manx Radio had clipped a reply to questions by an MHK which put a spin on the matter.

Andy Wint often thinks he is being smart and clever by going silent and forcing the caller to reply in the awkwardness of the silence. It's a tactic that backfired big time today because he got out silenced - the caller not only went quiet, he did one.

 

The caller called back today. His phone battery had cut out.

I think Andy Wint is only comfortable with lil' ol' ladies phoning in purring about how lovely the Isle of Man is.

Anything else and he goes on the offensive.

I've given up emailing the programme. Andy Wint rarely reads them out, even though they are sent early in and are on topic.

I would point out that Stu Peters never, ever failed to read out my emails, occasionally carrying them over to the next programme if necessary. Ditto Roger Watterson.

Everyone put their romantic request in for tomorrow's Love Line with Andy Wint?  I haven't,  it would be a bit like asking me Dad to play something schmoozey - completely anticlimactic.

Two of the best presenters Manx Radio has had. I am afraid Mr Wint does not "cut it" or "do it for me" to use the modern parlance. 

As for Romance on the Radio - eurgghhh.

They’ll only ever be one definitive love line and it’ll always be 219 with Stu Lowe, I always thought as a DJ he was as good as anything the uk had at the time.

Who could forget ‘The Love Line, on 219’.

I'd take any sort of climax Gladys...
