Er...the IOM is not even on the list?

Sark made the list, though. Maybe Larry got confused - he doesn't come across as much of a rocket scientist...

 

"Larry Porges, an editor with Nat Geo Travel Books, says he’s always wanted to visit and plans to spend a week here. Larry says he wants to see Manx cats and cammag, as well as Viking and medieval castle ruins – and says he’ll eat kippers, salmon, and scallops every day!"

He'll have spotted that Shoprite has an offer on for John West salmon at the moment.

Perhaps he'll also enjoy sucking some Manx Knobs .

If we had first class hotels to accommodate more visitors this could be good news.

But I think the island is a bit lacking on the facilities which world travellers are used to.

And can you see them queuing up at Heysham at 2am to come over on the boat?

 

Good luck to him finding Manx cats. I haven't seen one in ages.

Just how many free tickets are Manx Radio news staff getting for the Phantom of the Opera? I know the station is a sponsor, but really, is this news? Will all the other AmDram societies get the same coverage? News editor please news edit!

10 tickets.

What Manx Radio really need to stop reporting are the inane items at the end of the news, usually about some 'z list' celebrity doing something that is of no interest except to themselves and Manx Radio.

 

I agree 100%. However, you and I are not representative of the vast number of people who live for 'reality' TV shows and are knee-deep in 'celebrity' culture.

I wonder if some of the young things that have appeared on MR are staffers. It would be odd after making all the established names freelance. One of the young ladies (I think she's the one filling David Callister's trousers on Saturday mornings) said she "had moved over for the job" so is it a job?

Why, when Manx Radio report that a bill has been voted on and lost by so many votes does it not now report who voted for it and who did not, this always used to be reported. The Newspapers have been very shy on this front lately as well, we as voters have the right to know how are M.H.K.'s are voting. The two latest examples are the Road Tax increase and Assisted Death bills. I want to know how my current .M.H.K.S voted transparent !!!!! I do not think so.

This is really becoming a big issue, & will become more so with the forthcoming 'LegCo Elections' vote

 

Am I right that actual voting is only published now in Hansard whereas the votes were previously read out?

 

I want to know how my MHK & the other t***s voted straight away - not to have to wait for it
