The problem is that we know we need cuts but we aren't getting enough of them. We are getting a plethora of increased charges seemingly without a care about how people should find the money to pay for

Cuts? What cuts? I expect better of Kate. She is just parroting the same crap as the rest of them here.   Like so many other measures, this isn't a cut. It is a charge increase. All that will happen

They all know what needs to be done but are to full of self preservation and inflated ego's to tackle it in any way whatsoever. Cut the numbers of politicians would make a great start, but I can not

Suggest you check your source again because you are wrong with your post.

well it was a simple copy and paste, so what's wrong with the post ?, if the source is wrong it's not my fault, if they publish something a couple of weeks ago and it's out of date by monday it was a waste of time doing it, and that's exactly what I posted it for

Yes, and it suggests a lack of knowledge by the left hand of a government department to know what the right hand is doing.

All bus stops are request stops.
Signal the bus to stop
.
As the bus approaches, check the route number and destination displayed on the front of the bus. Raise your arm as a signal to the driver that you want the bus to stop.

 

Alternatively, if it's not your bus, stand around looking gormless, until the driver stops, then look at him as if he's inconveniencing you.

Going back to the '70s, the terms of carriage made wonderful reading, including gems like prohibiting the trailing of streamers or flags from the vehicle, or throwing money from the vehicle for passers by to scramble for! What colourful lives passengers must have led in those days. In future they'll have no money to throw.

From Manx Radio

 

Over-60s will no longer enjoy free train journeys and will have to pay half-fares on bus services between 4pm and 5.30pm on weekdays.

 

Not much of a change except it's currently or used to be peak period between 8 and 9 and 5 and 6?

 

As for Kate Beecroft, you might want to look up the policies of the Liberal Democrats in the UK for an idea of her goals. The sooner this island gets its own Conservative Party to challenge the status quo, the better. Labour and the Lib Dem style politicians and agendas are ruining this island.

 

 

Christ, that's the funniest load of crap I've seen for a long time

Just one more reason to think about getting away from here really, they all add up and eventually the point will be reached that all we have is a bit of scenery, with no means for pensioners to appreciate it!

 

Leave here and your pension will be stripped to the bone and you'll have to take out private health care (unless you are a politician that is).

 

Oh the modern joys of Manx pensioners being interned on the Isle of Man.

Private health care for pensioners? Forget it. They are only interested if you are young enough to pay and not draw for a few decades. Otherwise the premiums will be prohibitive. Don't give your money to the man. Spend it, enjoy it and take your chance.
