Beer Tent

If anything then, I would say they are guilty of poor management and planning. As I said earlier, if the intention was not to bother then why go through all the bother of going to court to get a licence?

Further penalty fees?

If, as suggested, the Hooded Ram had no intention of running a beer tent this year, Is there a penalty for not applying for a licence?

No. Except that without one you can’t supply alcohol.

Maybe they will have to change the name from “bottleneck tent” to “ teapot spout tent” ?

It was shit organisation last year and only Raj pulling strings that got it over the line. This year no Raj, the Ram is on its arse, there is little management left, so they ambled along. Any Manxie with any local knowledge could tell this was unlikely, except it seems, the landlord who has predictably just come forward and spouted forth 'nowt to do with us gov. ' in doing so, also confirming it will remain a car park.

Someone told me that they thought Raj was the problem, not the cure. I have a family member who knows Rob well and that is good enough for me to say that I hope he does well in whatever he does and feel sorry for him that he trusted the wrong backer.

People are weirdly hostile towards the hooded ram since the investment came in, but the pub is alright, £3 a pint the other day, and the off licence is ace. Although I've had to ban myself from going in there and spending silly money on beers I've never tried before.

I doubt that anyone had an issue with Rob

It’s a typical IOMG farce that’s unraveled to try to monetize the TT in increasingly shit and clueless ways as they haven’t got a clue what they’re doing when is comes to acting commercially. Can you imagine if Martin Brunchweiller hadn’t got the Villa after all the IOMG and Douglas Corporation maneuverings after HR signed a five year deal allegedly negotiated by Allan Bell which has now all but folded after one year? Skelly would probably be kneeling in the gutter outside Martins house begging him to come back to the Bottleneck and to kiss and make up to stop making themselves look total fools as there would now be no TT entertainment and no time to put any on. They’ve been turned over well and good in their quest for “commercial” TT deals and to try to move the event “upmarket” and have tried to put people who have invested a huge amount of time and money into the TT over many, many years out of business in an attempt to try to justify their own useless jobs and blow smoke up the ass of greedy HNWs. This reflects very well on MB as a business man and a long term TT supporter and hopefully this years TT village will be even better than ever.

Well if Bell (HR advisor/director?) was anywhere near it, a short term existence then implosion was guaranteed. It is/was a trademark.

Not having tentage, acts or beefy boys booked as at two weeks before TT implies not a lot of interest or experience, surely?

I thoroughly second the above opinion of MB, incidentally. He has quite simply shown our shower of snivelling, self serving incompetents (inc DBC) to be exactly what they are.

He has and as someone who is not doing it for the profile or to be noticed as a “mover and shaker” or high powered businessman. 

It would be worth reposting the link to the original Bushy’s / Hooded Ram thread that was originally started last year as I’m sure many posters in this thread should be eating humble pie about what they said about Bushy’s and Martin Brunscweiller at the time they were cumming in their pants about the Hooded Ram getting the contract.
