It is and that's why Clegg is here - not sure if Foggy & Compo will turn up :D

 

I think the rest of the COMIIN have let Earnshaw & Quayle open one present early so they'll be occupied during the visit.

Isle of Man to host British-Irish Council Summit

 

http://www.gov.im/lib/news/cso/isleofmantohostb.xml

 

THE British-Irish Council, established under the terms of the Good Friday peace agreement, will hold its 15th Summit meeting in the Isle of Man in December.

 

Senior politicians from sovereign governments, devolved institutions and crown dependencies will gather to discuss a wide range of issues, including the global economic outlook. The Council is the only international forum comprising the governments of the UK, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Isle of Man, Jersey and Guernsey.

 

Established in 1999, it plays an important role in developing positive links between member countries and provides a platform for consultation and co-operation on matters of common interest. The Summit, which is taking place in Douglas on Monday, December 13, will focus on the economy and also on the progress being achieved in relation to digital inclusion – a work stream led by the Isle of Man.

 

Chief Minister Tony Brown MHK said:

 

‘The British-Irish Council has always been a valuable forum for the Isle of Man, allowing us to take our place amongst the governments of the British islands and discuss matters of mutual interest at the highest level. As a full and active member of the Council, the Isle of Man is looking forward to welcoming and hosting Ministers and officials from across the UK, Ireland and the Crown Dependencies. The BIC Summits provide an opportunity to strengthen relationships with our closest neighbours and to share ideas on a number of issues, including ways to address our fiscal challenges and encourage a more sustainable future for people across our islands.’

 

The Isle of Man previously hosted the British-Irish Council in 2005, while the most recent Summit meeting took place in Guernsey in June this year.

It's quite annoying to say the least. I live on that road and we got letter telling us we had to find somewhere else to park for three days. The cops are there overnight as well, standing round chatting all night right under my window. Haven't spotted anyone of interest yet though...

I wonder if 0/10 is on the agenda? No doubt the communique will mention 'meaningful discussions'...

isn't it the British-Irish Council this week? that would explain the foreign dignitaries

 

More's to the point, I wonder how much all this is costing and who's actually paying for it? IoM must be a contributor? (and what's the Sefton's take, I wonder?!) :blink:

C*nts,

Interesting. For all your recent related tub-thumping, you've gone for self censorship, censorship. You silly cunt.

I was exercising discretion after someone complained they found the word offensive. Whilst I don't agree with their point of view, I respect their right to raise their concern and have enough respect for other forum users to exercise such discretion where appropriate. On this occasion I felt the comedic point could be made forcefully enough without the word appearing in full. On another occasion that won't be the case.

It's called respect, something you have regularly demonstrated you are not familiar with.
