Are you speaking in tongues?

Control to Red Leader - are you receiving me over?

Not at all.

I edited a post to add the Title of a song( you got your troubles, I got mine ) as a joke

Then when that fell on deaf ears I simply said " shit happens" as in tough luck.

Return to base and await further orders - maintain radio silence until then.

A good spanking is the only solution I'm afraid.

the prison came to be in jurby because of a mr burns like masterstroke by david cannan

Was he still in around that time (genuine q)? David "We're not interested in the grubby end of the Finance Sector" Cannan. He who promised that the demolition of the Army camp in 1988 would lead to redevelopment and jobs for all in Jurby. Still largely waiting.

he brokered the deal to the local tribes.

 

Who were obviously lacking in language comprehension or offer uptake to the degree that they agreed.

Oddly enough, the family home is (or was) still only a couple of miles away. And now Alf is the worshipped one. But easily within marching distance with burning torches.

They didn’t build it on an airfield as such...they built it in Jurby, as the only place on the Island where the locals/local authority wouldn’t go apeshit at the prospect and drag it through planning/the courts for a million years. It was originally planned for Braddan...like that was ever going to happen.

The logic of building a prison 20 odd miles from your main population Centre, the courts, and medical support is another clear example of lack of strategic planning. 

It messed the staff about, it messed visitors about, resulted in a prisoner escort service having to be contracted, and means that the benefits of being close to clinical and mental health resources are lost. Even the addition to vehicle pollution levels by longer journeys to get there weren’t factored in.

And the redevelopment potential of Jurby was greatly reduced in terms of the airfield viability.

it would however be good for bringing in rendition flights, for which we could charge the CIA a handsome sum.

It was kind of sold to the population as like a sort of inferior hobsons choice. Where the option of nothing was replaced with an animal carcass burial site for mad cow disease.
