I don't understand how he can say that, unless he's been working restructuring miracles behind the scenes?

He's at the wheel when a Govt commissioned report has just been received, stating that the DOI is probably the biggest bag of frogs in IoM Governmental history, he's not been there long enough to do anything with the Dept even if he did anticipate in advance what the report was going to say.

All he's done in his time is trot out excuse after excuse that he's been scripted by his "officers" (usually in their defence) and had his various frustrations reported periodically by the media.

The people who are really ultimately responsible for the state of the DOI (and it has taken a while, it didn't happen overnight) are either impregnable because they're untouchable, courtesy of "the system" or since retired with their wheelbarrows. 

This political genius said today in the covid regulations debate that if you don't make changes then some people won't be happy and if you do make changes then some people won't be happy. Mind blowing stuff. No wonder the DoI are in a much better shape with that insightful analysis he provides................

If you make the wrong changes no one will be happy.

This'll be why they didn't do it in granite

Yes, they're going to make a decorative feature of all the cones Streetworks has hired out to them. In the same way Gawnie buried a bottle on his drive

Newly opened feature?  

Has it been opened ?

I didn't read it, to be honest. Contractor working in my house was laughing and brought it to my attention so I just posted the link. And Mrs Q has just said even Fox News has it covered..!

It just looks to me like a load of people moaning about something they've literally never used before.  Bizarre.

Not open as a junction yet though not exactly indicative is it?  When I went through yesterday it was just one lane one way from south end of prom up Broadway between the cones.

Has that changed?

It was a failed attempt at humour. It is one way up Broadway, THROUGH CONES.

Sorry but you might have a point regarding over reaction and maybe it will after its open be okay and not be a problem to use etc but one thing is indefensible is the standard of workmanship on this roundel/roundabout . I'm sorry but its a disgrace and thats before we mention the lines painted on which I cant work out what there purpose is. Mind blowing to think DOI have the world and his wife scrutinising this project and they still cant ensure a acceptable standard of workmanship . Nobody would accept this work on their own property .

Agree.  Prepared to give it a go but cant accept the awful workmanship.  If it was our carpark then they wouldn't be getting paid until they put it right

The plan is to replace the painted lines with granite slabs at a later date
