If there's demand to have the news read in the Queen's English then I don't see why they can't get the Governor in Monday - Friday to read the news on a zero hours contract. 

Well reports in the Queens English would make it a whole lot more sensible.

Thank god Andy is back, Bonzo was on fire today, Quirky not so much I didn’t hear Howard I do hope he is well 😜 it was about wind power in the main Daph is coming on in three weeks to tell us how she and her Committee are progressing that should not take long.   The amount being trollied around has now dropped from the 41,000 to 37000 or something like that no one said where the rest has gone although sea defences were mentioned very briefly.   It is was mentioned if we lease the land they require to build the turbines the boat going to Liverpool will be sent off course which is a bit of a buggar when we have just paid out a nice few quid for the all singing, dancing landing stage but hey ho it is Tynwald day tomorrow so drinks all around 🤩.

I don't listen to MR much these days but heard some Mannin Line today.

Quirky was on giving it lahdee lahh about "this Government" being inactive. The presenter nicely responded by suggesting to the former MHK and self-styled elder statesman that the said problems were there when he was in Government.

(non-developed sites: Summerland, Vic Rd Prison, Castletown Golf Links Hotel etc)

The reply was less than convincing.

Maybe they could give him and Gawnio a programme to themselves...we've got "Talking Heads".

We could call theirs, "Talking Shit". Where they both get airtime to discuss their remarkable achievements whilst in office.

It would be the shortest show in Manx Radio History.

they should  do what David Callister  used to do with marg Joughin and Roy  Gough  and give them a rest for a week or so ,  I think Bonzo and a few others like Quirkie  are tending to hog the programme now ,and it would be good to have  a few manin lines when people are encouraged  to phone in for the first time for a comment ,

either that , or find some presenter who will subject callers to much more scrutiny and not just let them rant on ,

Indeed. All part of the public rehabilitation...and maintaining the publicity as well of course.
