Indeed. 

As we all know, the government is more than happy to outsource in order to save a few quid on things like electoral registration... so....

Should save a few quid.

Where do I submit my consultation invoice please?

I appreciate you probably jest, but that doesn't apply in these instances. It's a service specific to IOM Government, couldn't really be any more specific unless there's a huge market for paintings of our most important persons elsewhere? IC already clarified with the buses that commercial confidentially doesn't therefore apply.

My god, you can only imagine how Fieldmarshall Vice Admiral Viscount Watterson fancy dress is going to be.

I like this.

Should we run a thread to generate ideas for scenes featuring some of our current great and good? I would be more than happy to pay Jim to immortalise it, then maybe have it installed as a mural somewhere? Street art is all the rage these days apparently.

Either. I was trying not to be unkind.

I know a number of people who were very keen to provide free dentistry services in his case !!

I met a traveller from an antique land,
Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
And on the pedestal, these words appear:
My name is Spuan, King of Kings;
Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I wonder which of his fancy dresses he will use.   He may rise to be someone of great importance but to us locals he will always be known, affectionately as Spewin Juan, has a nice ring about it.
