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

Colour me surprised, at this rate we might finish in 2025!

I walked the Prom on Monday, and again today, both times around 9.45 to 10.15. Hardly anyone working. About 30 of the 'orange army' in Cafe Villa, both times.

The contractors definitely don't seem to have any awareness of how they are perceived, by the public.

The laying of the new main on the land side seems to be progressing, but otherwise, a few rails bolted down, by the Empress, was the only obvious progress, in four days.

After next Thursday, (1st October) they have 26 weeks (less Xmas) to finish.  It looks like a huge ask.
