I ask myself often how many would be still in a job in the private sector !! DOI management would be culled on mass tbh with CEO Black first out the door . 

We can but dream eh Numbnuts. This sham of a department should have been ousted years ago

I've explained this before Derek. From a friend working for a firm who is responsible for lots of services  , not Auldyn etc , while they had a concept plan from day one ie what the finished job would

It's not Harmer's direct fault. Nor any of those we elect. APART from not having the departmental and relevant experience and balls to stand up to and question the reams of bullshitters and chanc

Word has it that due to a cock up on order for the famous Chinese granite nowhere near enough has arrived for paving . Missed a zero out of measurements apparently. !

Temp done with tarmac in the mean time .  Anyone confirm or know any different ? Mine is a good source but yiu never know

Jeez, just leave them tarmac, we don't need granite or sculptures or all the other fancy bit's. Just give us a clean, smooth prom with loads of parking and let us get on with life and the shops and hotels allowed to do do what they are there for.

Oh for a benign dictatorship!

The trouble is that history informs us that if there's anything every sort of dictatorship likes, it's granite, sculptures and lots of twiddly bits.

In fact what we see here is a sort of dictatorship.  The DoI hierarchy have got themselves into a situation where they seem immune from any sort of democratic control and can do whatever they want with absolutely no consequences for themselves.

I'm fookin amazed that China has got enough granite to satisfy the DOI wish list.

The DOI will have already had their entire country transported here and installed if the Chinese ever decide to invade. They'll feel quite at home if they ever come.

I do agree but the, ''benign', prefix was the important part! Of course it's just as impossible as our governing system reducing in size and becoming both practically and financially efficient.

Yes' I also read prom was closed but would anybody know the difference as I now avoid it like the plaque and as I have learnt not to use it as a route around the rest of Douglas I will probabley continue after the ego based fuck up returns to a through fare. All they had to do was relay the bloody tarmac

A burning torch march on DOI offices by disgruntled Douglas business community?

Here we go ! Or maybe its a disgruntled TT visitor who didnt get their money back from these low lifes .

I don't know the full situation with the Ellan Vannin and the TT visitors, but if you don't have the money to give back how do you give it back? It's a shit situation, but we're all in a shit situation.

There's a lot to be said for that.

Oh and why didn't they do the promenade in manageable sections, or erm, has that already been asked.
