The aspects and major points of the required "stronger business case" will be interesting to read, if they're ever made public of course.

Creation of such numbers has always been a DfE forté. But let's see if anybody can better Laurence's efforts.

I reckon they are good at business cases..... let's be honest, anyone that can sell a project at 3 million (tin shed Liverpool) as a sound business case, and then continue to convince it as such at 60 million, must be something of an expert at business cases surely ?!

It looked that way to me the bits I saw, blokes in civvies putting out cones and barriers in the road, not a yellow hi viz in sight, really amateur. 

I would have thought the quality of a man's work would be of greater importance than the colour of his clothing. 

Many of the worst cowboys I've ever met wear high viz like a uniform and have every industry and government accreditation going.

You shouldn't judge a book by its cover.

I'm pretty sure they only kept a couple of bits. Someone will know i'm sure .

Where is the rest? On the Bonfire? Waiting to be sold?

Another classic IOMG screwball comedy production. 
 

My money is on TT2022 being cancelled, due to the poor conditions of the roads.

I was skeptical before today but I’m now buying a possible no TT in 2022 for a number of reasons but this today has tipped my view. How are they going to sell that to the hoteliers and hospitality businesses who are already watching their businesses go down the toilet? 

Pass.

There are some decent politicos who will make an effort, but I’m afraid the Starship Enterprise and it’s crew have been poor for the island. Skelly jumped ship before he was dumped. Rob Callister I’m afraid is  just full of hot air. His comment about watching 2 stages of the rally amused me. Must have gone past his home. He should have been involved as he is still the department member, or has he given that up, awaiting to be appointed into a Ministerial role.

I have a great friend with a couple of businesses on the prom and its cleaned him out. He's kept going and hopefully will be able to get through but with no TT next year he's not I'd say. He's already sold is main asset so nothing left to fall back on. I really feel for him and yet all around him money is getting pissed up against walls and wasted on none productive management in CS . God knows how he sleeps at night when theres the likes of the Liverpool landing stage , Prom and umpteen other fuck ups . Yet he has to find money to pay his loyal staff . He's a really good guy !!

So you agree with a historic TT icon being totally destroyed when there was no plan or budget in place to even replace it? Maybe we should do the grandstand next. Knock it down first and then find we don’t have the budget in place to build another as well? 

It’s only £16. Bargain.

And yet Sefton got bailed out when they didn’t want to sell their assets in difficult time.

I was talking today with a TT and FOM Marshall and enthusiast, I believe that there was a clock on the scoreboard, apparently donated by the family of Stanley Woods. I hope that IOMG haven’t disgarded a piece of history?

Will be hanging in Paul Phillips hall so he can reminisce his non racing days and how Cretney plucked him from Bank teller job and escalated him into top job.
