Don't bet on that :) There are a good few passionate people out there still leafleting at elections. And with corpy councillors getting in on around a 15% turnout...100 people with a point can overturn that very, very, very...very easily.

Albert, unless you are going to do a "Buster" with the votes then I very much doubt the rest of Douglas will care a jot who runs the beer tent...

Bushys got the Villa then. Done properly it could be superb.

yes, even better than where they were as there are proper toilets either side  that aren't pay as you go.   the only bummer would be rain as it would turn into the somme in no time,   even the little bit of water around for the food festival  made the going soft.

Appalling use of the lovely Villa gardens.

I would have loved to be a fly on the wall when this "deal" was done.

That should work well for them. Closer to most hotel and guest house accommodation along the Prom, so lots of folks would have to walk past the Villa to get to the Hooded Ram's tent on the old site, and they might not bother. I agree about the grass, though.

i can see a smaller tent to make it look busy will be required at the bottleneck.  hooded ram can't be to happy that the competition is only a few hundred yards up the prom.

would have been better had they put Bushy's on the prom by the war memorial. Get rid of the pikey village that sets up camp there each year

It's good that they have somewhere but just don't think an awful lot of thought went into where they are going. Can you imagine the state of the gardens after a fortnight of "beer tent" invasion...

it wont help the take in the villa itself either  but if cutting your nose off etc etc  is what it takes to get the corpy back for ditching the horse trams onto govt so be it.
