TT 2018

The real difficulty that I have with the TT is the government sponsorship. 

If people wish to organise races, then fine. Let them buy land, build tracks, and do just that.

What we have is a situation where many Islanders object to the TT for a variety of reasons. Some dislike the road closures. Some dislike the inevitable deaths. Some dislike the cost. 

As the TT is to all intents and purposes run by the Island's government, we currently have no option but to put up with this.

This will change at some point in the future. Sadly it will probably take an 'accident' of epic proportions to bring this about.

If you don't like the TT why not form a group, elect a chairperson, spokesman, treasurer. Then get the treasurer to buy the 43 boat tickets for you all to fuck off on the boat tomorrow.

We can't stop the TT even if we wanted to. We just bought the Steam Packet FFS.

And we paid the profit out to the previous owners at the current level for the next 8 years.

Can't have private enterprise benefiting for 111 years of shipping bikes and riders to and fro, and then the week after the government takes over we throttle the golden goose. Government would look a bigger bunch of tits than they have ever looked over any cock up in the past.

End of discussion.

Just watched the first bit of today's TT show on ITV 4 where Dean Harrison set a new lap record. Not being funny, but he looks properly on the ragged edge, he'll be lucky to see the week out riding like that no matter how much it makes Tim Glover wet his knickers at the grandstand.

Or as that nice Guy Martin put it in his autobiography:

"Hanging his bollocks out..."
