It says the figures came from a written question in Tynwald, so someone with the gift to navigate the gov website can probably find out more details than that skimpy 3fm piece. I don't care enough to look into it. Just seems a high number, but as Dr Grumpy says without context it might not be.

Went home, got pissed and died happy. Win win. Manx DHSC saved dollar for Govt pensions. Which is the priority.

“All that workplace bullying made me get shit-faced and crash the car” 

Sadly not a joke - an Island nurse I knew drank herself to death due to stress :( .

Doesn't give anyone the right to get in a car fully sauced and endanger innocent road users
