From IOMOnline: US diesel locomotive ready to set sail to Isle of Man

 

Once again it seems IOM Newspapers are blocking comments on stories that rile the Manx public.

 

How much more do you want to complain about it? It has been paid for and is being delivered so it's a bit late to do anything about it now.

Long past you having to wait 2 years to get your knee replaced because we have run out of cash, your tax has gone up 10% and you've had to move for work off island.

Perhaps rather than complaining about the money that has already been spent you/we should focus on future spending and policy that we can actually influence then. The £400,000 on that train is peanuts compared to some of the other Government spending going on.

Perhaps people could also look towards introducing ways that actually keep politicians accountable? The old "lessons have been learned" excuse is getting..well..old. I know countries where some of those gentlemen would already have been asked to step outside for a bit, to a place with no witnesses.

He can get another five years of moaning out of this.

I'll stop moaning when people finally get held to account.

 

It will happen AFAIAC.

Meanwhile Tynwald holds up spending considerably less on an IT solution for a department in DED, jeapardising the future of the section who are making six figure returns for the IOM

Well the engine has arrived but before you all charge down to see it there are bodies on the gate stopping 'the public' entering the premises.

There is so much cling wrap covering the engine it looks like a turkey could be under there. It'll take them a week to unwrap it.
