there wouldn't have been a perceived need for any changes if thick cunts just drove to the road conditions/layout  instead of their own egos.  the faster you make a road look the faster dumb fuckers will drive.  the new safe windy corner seems to have just as many ( if not more )  crashes than the older dangerous one.    

One of the skills of highway planning should be that roads are designed so that even poor drivers will handle them as safely as they can, not so that good ones (or ones who think they) can drive fast.  Blaming the drivers would be rather missing the point, because the layout should discourage them behaving like that.

Perhaps some of the problems with Richmond Hill are caused by the DoI being infected with TT-itis and thinking that every road should become a racetrack, but it's probably more that they lack more general skills to design and implement their ideas.  Certainly it never seems to have occurred to them that water runs downhill.  I suspect they have an idea what a 'proper' road looks like (a motorway over a nice flat and dry landscape) and simply try to get as near to that as they can, irrespective of need, topography, local conditions, weather, safety or cost.  Especially cost.

On the IOM, it failed in those four words

Amazing how after all this time the road surface becomes ok just before TT

Pathetic in fact. The DOI top brass & Minister must think we were all born yesterday. Tossers.

Who was it posted a couple of days ago that they'd heard that the VAT rebate had been returned to previous levels?

Any truth to it? And what might have changed in the IoM economy that would have raised the figure? Because we seem to be on money-pissing season again, another £2.4M for more new buses too, another loco being proposed to be resurrected from a museum, Lord knows what being spent on the horsetrams.

All of which is in sharp contrast to proposed cuts in Benefits and what's generally being fed to the population?

ETA, found it, it was the Stinking Enigma on the Bullying thread. Come clean Stinky and tell us all :lol:

The magic money making machine in the sky keeps on delivering for the Manx public sector sadly. Money not earned is the easiest money you can spend.

The phrase is grammatically correct.

That people should be responsible for their mistakes? An alien concept to lazy fuckers like you I know.

Dump your sense of entitlement.

One thing I have never been is lazy :angry:

 I don't feel any sense of entitlement at all.

You had a bad pint or what ?
