With a political appointee now in place it's certainly headed that way.

A great shame really. First scalp being The Mash Report...

Headed that way? On the day that the news broke about Peter Cruddas being given a lordship after the House of Lords Appointments Commission turned it down and him subsequently donating £500,000 to the Conservative party two days later what did newsnight run with? An attempt to smear Howard Beckett the leading contender in the Unite leadership election because he's very left wing. To be fair he defended himself excellently.

As I posted it's a great loss.

Unfortunately expect more of the same...

Andy Wint on the Manx Radio Mannin Line today was doing some defending of the £1million that Manx Radio receives from Government.

He told the listeners that "Manx Radio receives just 33p in the pound from Government, the other 66% is received from the likes of this:"

<queue Manx Radio Advert>

...and the advert was for the Isle of Man Government owned Steam Railways! 

You couldn't make it up. Anyway, nice one Andy. It gave our house a chuckle.

I see that in their headline story about 'active travel' and Tromode Road Douglas on the website, those masters of the English language in the Manx Radio newsroom have deployed 'muted' when they mean 'mooted'. The two meanings could not be more different. Cretins.

So Quayle won’t talk to MR until he’s had ‘an apology’. Apart from the the fact that not hearing the stuttering nonsense that the oaf invariably spews out is a joy…what an insufferable arsehole.

Grow a pair.
