Favours for mates/cronyism and nepotism are cornerstones of our governance.

It's certainly very hard not to come to that conclusion, isn't it?

Particularly when you're occasionally seeing it first hand. :wacko:

Our Governments Mouthpiece speaks. It will be interesting to see if this actually gets off the ground. 

what makes you think it wont? The developer will have gone to a lot of trouble and expense, first with the tender and second with planning.

They have pre let/expressions of interest from Travelodge so the only likely reason not to go ahead will be if they, as anchor tenant, withdraws.

That and manx crabbism

I see the owner of renowned bright and airy pub The Albert is objecting as it will plunge the place into darkness.

Is it possible to make it any darker?

It's highly likely that there will be 'Opt out' clauses but with restrictions on their use. Normal/?

FFS, The Albert is stuck in the "dark" ages. It escaped the clearance of that area 100 years ago, so maybe the museum should step in and preserve the landlord and his customer in Perspex cases.

Or, they could become a novelty attraction for the masses who will come to the new building for modern day entertainment. :thumbsup:

As I said, novelty value.
