Ahem - we don't walk about P anymore. Just forget about those tens of millions. Nothing to see here.

(anyway, it's not like Wales could lose their VAT share)

"I have been pushing manx Welsh Government for some time to give details of their relationship with Pinewood, the Media Investment Budget and the transparency of decisions made.

Can't see anything on the site at the mo; doubtless somebody will be along to say that it's nonsense. Perhaps Allan and Eddie would like to make themselves available for comment?

My friend told me it was in the paper yesterday, can't see it on the site, maybe its been hurriedly pulled as we foray into another expensive can't fail investment !

Disappeared it has. It was featured on the usual, "What's in your Examiner/Manx independent" article they put up before it hits the stands. I had to zoom in to read it but it's now gone...

So nothing has been gained on this investment since the Guardian published the losses 6 years ago.

It's definitely in hard print in the Examiner. If I can find it, I'll post it up.

Bravo, LC. But it's not new-news...

If anyone reads the link, read also the comments section. Only 20 or so but worth looking at...

And more. Our 'Space Industry' gets some scrutiny too. :whistling:

It seems that a significant portion of the Isle of Man Film Industry was a vehicle to 'get rid' of money. Such as produce invoices for expensive equipment that wasn't used etc. Stuff like that.
