It's easily confusing when a poster is running more than one device/puppet at the same time. The trolling is the same on other local platforms, iomtoady being one such. 

Hilarious really, the lengths little people will go to to substantiate themselves...

For the benefit of us who have no clue what you are talking about, would you care to elaborate?

f you have OCD , or even just a basic desire to do things properly then you had better scroll on by.

That is a well-framed photo. A Mondrian-style work of art (except for the triangles).

In the latest Strategic Board minutes they refer to a possible roundabout statue as "an installation", so it could be they regard the prom. scheme as a 1.5 mile long art installation.

Which brings me to the promenade cracks. As art aficionados no doubt they are all familiar with Doris's Crack which was on display at the Tate Modern a while ago, and they regard the cracks as an essential part of the piece - representing the dichotomy between rich and poor etc.

Perhaps all the cracks will be given names like Black's Crack, Cannan's Crack and so on. And as there are so many cracks to go around, the taxpayer will be able to sponsor a crack....

I believe this was successfully done on island before?

This is a personal favourite of mine... don't worry about designing roads to meet basic safety standards, just design a new standard.

Fortunately Nick Black was identified as not being up to standard and that's why he's out on his arse.

Fuck sake - only Nick Black???

if he has gone under mars  that could be as much as £250,000 plus a lump sum and a pension around £50,000 + a year  for life  ,I hope someone in Tynwald or on the Public accounts committee  is going to investigate this , and the same with Big Annie at the airport , add this cost to the fiasco's then this is not far short of criminal

He can't have got Mars, if he did the role would disappear. Thought it was a year's salary anyway. Possible he has been sacked and paid his notice. Most likely negotiated an agreement. Which will be confidential, can't remember what they are called. Someone will know on here.

Compromise agreement?
