4…. Having a little group chat to see if you can ban someone because they don’t agree with you 😂

This is possibly the most poorly moderated site on the internet.  Which might explain why it is so quiet.

A slight wiff of boredom in the air:thumbsup:

Got to love the way the all-mighty ruler Mr John Wright bans people from his crappy little corner of the internet at the drop of a hat 😂

Shame his computer knowledge is so crap that it takes seconds to setup a new account from the same device 😂 and that he never actually publicly posts a reason despite being a total nob towards other people with opinions that are just as valid as his if not more so.

Horrible little man.  They should never be given what they think is power as it tends to go to their heads.

Extremely rare to see all sides of the iron triangle in bits, but there you go: cost, time and quality all broken. Therefore benefits realisation not met 🤣

Following the usual pattern of events, Tim Baker gives his reassurances that work will be completed by a given date about a week before the next delay is announced 🙉🤡

So the discussion about being finished by 26th August instead of 28th August to be clear for the bank holiday weekend was academic after all 🤷‍♂️

More promenade delays.

Suppose it's not really 'news' any more, is it. 

I'm sure it will come up in the last Tynwald, won't it ?

Just got pipped by @english zloty

 

"The DoI says in order to help speed up completion its taking up parts of the project and will deliver these with 'other resources'."

So are Auldyn paying the DoI to help them out? Or is Auldyn getting the same money and the DoI stepping in represents more taxpayer money down the promenade drain? 

And what's with the (what amounts to) 'air quotes' around 'other resources'?

At least this is probably the final nail in the coffin that is Baker's re-election bid.

I love this line ...

"A pragmatic and constructive dialogue continues with the company on finishing as soon as possible but we will not allow the quality of the finished product to be compromised at this stage"

As far as  I can see quality has not been a feature of the project from the start.

Neither has negotiation regarding contracts and contractors. If this was across the water, timescales would be built in, and penalty clauses. For all the bluster, the spin and the press releases it’s likely the promenade could be finished next year, not even Christermas. Yet again the taxpayers are picking up the pieces.
