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

But the problem isn't the horse trams.  It's the corporate culture of the Manx civil service.  Rather than accept the reality of what their main job is, which is maintain existing structures in the mo

Just look at these irrelevant fancy dress bellends dressing up as the town is literally being destroyed around them

I’m sure Douglas ratepayers will be delighted to see their money has been well spent on those outfits and no doubt a few drinks & canapés

What's natalie byron doing there? Is she a Douglas councillor? 

She is, though oddly enough that's not why she's in the photo.  She's acting as Deputy Mayoress, presumably because Janet Thommeny couldn't force a female relative into accompanying her to various tedious Corpy functions.  There are lots more photos if you're interested.

Edited to add:  The IOM Newspapers' story dated 4 September, is based on the above press release from 18 August.  Which is glacial even for them.

Cool, I did not know that. I went to school with Natalie, a million years ago. Good luck to her, I hope she punches David Christian, although she's probably calmed down these days.

Well to be a Douglas Councilor it’s usually no actual election required now. Stick your papers in and walk in unopposed as literally nobody gives a shit whether your a useless Douglas councilor or not. They’ll be dragging people in off the streets next when even turning up to ask to be let in unopposed isn’t worth it.

Can’t say I remember either of those two getting elected. Bad enough that the taxi driver is mayor. Nice enough fella, but what th.............

edit to add that I’m not even sure we need all the people. I actually am a supporter of David Christian, who knows all there is to know about Douglas and he could run the town better on his own.

It was a pity the DOI did not take into account the traffic coming up BlackBerry lane(where the detours had sent them) in their traffic management whilst undertaking to remove some paint and cones from around Governer's Dip this afternoon considering they must have been there since 8am. There again double bubble, rake in in boys only 7 more months of unending overtime left on the prom job

It's a pity the DoI removed the temporary bus stop from Blackberry Lane even though the buses are still running up there. I wouldn't then have had to watch the bus go past me as I was walking up to catch an alternative one on Governor's Road. I think I might actually hate the DoI.
