[*]terrific choice of 'homemade' jam will be available

 

Thank God.

 

I'm holding out for a new series of The Good Life. I've often wondered how they are getting on.

Busy collecting eggs and pickling onions as you wait!

 

Think of our Island gardens as allotments for the next 3-5 years - window boxes for herbs too.

Look on the bright side Declan, with the new forum craze of quoting every single fecking post that preceeds them, the forum will soon be full and there'll be no room left for bickering. :)

 

Good point.

The Isle of Man would look a lot better without these oversized and high polluting cars of our roads.

People are driving around in people carriers and 4 wheel drives the size of Manhattan.

 

Here is the solution:

 

1. Only issue 4 x 4s to the Emergency Services and People carriers to taxi firms or institutions that can prove to the Government that they would need one

 

2. Ban the sale and imports of these types of vehicles into our Island to the General Public

 

3. Give everyone 5 years to get rid of the ones they have.

 

4. At the end of 5 years, the public could hand these vehicles in and be given a grant of eg. £2000 towards a smaller more eco friendly car and the Government could recover it's money from the selling of these vehicles for scrap metals.

 

5 promote car sharing.

 

6. Improve public Transport.

It's a wonderful idea. Except that the scrap value of a car is more like £2.00 than £2,000.00.

and in that communist utopian paradise to which you aspire, what happens to freedom of choice? You start by limiting the type of car I can drive, then the type of holiday I can go on, then the job I can do, then the food I can eat, then the books I can read (or do books end up being burned in your imaginary world?)

Behave. There are degrees to all your freedoms. Take porn as an example. Or knives.
