This time next year wasnt it. Project was meant to take two years. 

I think they meant the cone and fence distribution project...

Only on the IoM would being already 20% late on delivery be seen as a success.

Get Kevin McCloud in to make a documentary. Amateur project manager, overstretches ideas, overspends on budget. Doesn't realise vision and cries great lot.

The July one is the newest one? Why would it take months to publish that?

No idea, possiibly  just the cogs of bureacracy straining under the weight of sheer BS. 

 

This one is eye-opening - according to the minutes Longworth was (is?) dreaming up (a no doubt expensive) scheme to extend the MER into central Ramsey... WHY?.

Club Tynwald need to kick that one right into touch before it goes any further.

What the feckity feck is that all about. The damn thing terminates at just about the central part of Ramsey. Further proof that Longtail should be moved out completely. Any minister that backs this crazy plan should also go.

No he’s probably doing it at 3:00am on a Sunday morning if he’s acting true to form.

AB confirmed the taxpayer (MUA) is to pay the taxpayer (DOI) all delay costs :hug:

But wait the taxpayer (DOI and MUA) will also pay acceleration costs. So joe public is fooled into thinking everything is marvellous :sorcerer:

I walked along today. Very pleased to see 2 guys with a spade watching a digger moving some soil around.  Things are happening!
