Well, that's what I thought at the last election, which is why I voted for Morehouse over Cregeen and Gawne.

Which, sadly, speaks volumes for the quality of candidates offering themselves up. Although not exclusive to the southerners.

I thought Amazon payments get channelled through Luxembourg.

On a separate note, I’ve noticed Hooperman, the Super MHK sticking his oar in regarding The IOMSPC. Demanding public inputs and generally LibVan busybodying. I thought that Alfie Hey Boy was top interferer of the Racket, and his henchmen sat as nicely paid directors. It’s supposed to be run at arms length (ALMO), but fat chance of that with Treasury, LibVan, and certain MHKs all sticking their beaks in. I really wonder how many of these politicos and civil servants actually use the Racket either going across with a car for a break, or bring freight over as part of running a business? 

When I filled in my IOMSPCo survey I remember thinking that human nature being what it is the responders will all want a faster crossing for less money. You can imagine my amazement when that seemed to be the case....! 

I was less than amazed to discover that no one had thought to survey all the IOMSPCo account holders the omission being par for the course.

It makes sense to have two vessels especially to cash in on the easily remembered ABC plus assorted Grockles and to back each other up. It makes no sense to me if they can't back each other up during the more ship-wearing winter months with it's added sresses of bad weather.

But currently the thinking seems to be no change.

As the IOM is now party to the profits made by the SPCO, it makes no sense at all to keep the fast craft.

Simplistically the company has two "goods vehicles" to transport goods to and from the island, it just doesn't make sense for one of them to only be available for part of the year but still have the running costs and upkeep of the other ! It may be a nice to have, and I agree speed is wonderful, but now we are a co owner the bottom line is I would suggest of greater priority !
