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

It also emerged, in the same committee sitting that the CEO, Nick Black, was not aware that the track layout at The Esplanade has been significantly changed from what they have planning permission for. This is despite the fact it was reported by IOM Newpapers already. 

You couldn’t make this stuff up.....

Mind blowing incomptence and your right you couldnt. And bearing in mind the public outcry over the Prom its beyond belief that they are not making massive effort to avoid any more cockups.

Any public outcry actually means fuck-all to them. It is water off a ducks back. They are safe and secure in the knowledge that there'll be little or no repercussions for any incompetence. This is reflected in the lack of effort to avoid any more cock-ups.

I just don’t understand how Nick Black is still there presiding over all these cock ups?

Didnt they get rid of Chris Corlett for less than black has done?

I don't know about Corlett, but there are other seemingly untouchables who're equally as 'wanting' as Nick Black...

I've heard some unbelievable stories about Jeff Robinson . Apparently another arrogant piece of work who feels turning up to management meetings is seemingly beyond him. Has also a perchance of falling asleep in ones he does go to . And yes my source is very credible .

Isn’t it time for an independent review of DOI like they did for education & health are are planning for police?

I think so but not much point if there all bullet proof as clearly theres management and CEO there who are in the wrong job .

They got rid of Corlett because he did things that would have made the jobs of other senior civil servants more difficult by privatising the running of  TT.  

Black on the other hand is behaving in exactly the way they approve of - presiding over lots of unnecessary and expensive capital projects and letting his nominal underlings do whatever they want.  As I keep on tediously pointing out that's why he was appointed in the first place.

He must have been a Alan Bell appointment right ?
