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

Totally predictable when Baker took office and chose to put his faith in serial failures like Black and Robinson.

Baker seems like a pleasant chap, but this shows poor judgement.

It's now time for Quayle to really get a grip on this Department.

This and the exposé on what went on with the Laxey bridge alone should warrant changes.

Surely they never planned to put them in the middle of the pavement

My wife walks that part regularly and says the spot for that lamp post was marked out weeks ago. would have thought the installers might have questioned it though.

Just been on Manx Radio that DBC gave confirmed it was a DOI contractor error, again!

It will be rectified soon at no expense to taxpayers

My reliable source tells me that Auldyn have asked for a disclaimer from DOI  with regards these services as they dont consider them safe . If true and I'm sure it is I dont blame them .

Surely there are strict rules and regs about how these should be laid ? I know nothing about it but it looks a dogs breakfast at best !

I can see power cables laid over the top of a gas main. Aren't power cables supposed to be the lowest of the services for safety in the event of any future excavation work?

Douglas Corpy Councillor John Skinner says that the ratepayers won’t pay for the lamppost on Douglas Promenade to be removed and resited in a position which won’t cause harm. From the Nations Propoganda Mouthpiece- 

Douglas Council insists a lighting column in the middle of a narrow pavement on the promenade is being replaced.

The pole, which was installed on King Edward Road, was criticised for reducing access for wheelchair users and parents with pushchairs.

A statement issued by the local authority said it was an "error on the part of the Department of Infrastructure's groundworks contractor".

Councillor John Skinner says it will be replaced with no cost to the ratepayer:

Of course .............. except many of the ratepayers are also taxpayers. Therefore I’m paying yet again for Government incompetence and DOI useless labour, technical and management staff - preceded over by an even worse than Harmer, Minister the third rate Timba. Maybe it would be third time lucky if the Ministerial role was given to Cregeen. A couldn’t make any worse job of things?
