That fairground. I wonder if our chief Minister 'Green' Howard would care.

This ride reminds me of something out of Family Guy (or was it The Simpsons?)

I can't think of a better location than Shaw's Brow. Just behind the Courthouse for easy access to all the under age jailbait that they seem so keen on. Or maybe the one above Finch Rd. Next to the Tynwald freakshow. They'll be even happier there.

They have constructed a very high quality car park (for only circa 34 cars) in the small remaining space on the Summerland site.  It has a new concrete entrance, electronic warning lights for the tram crossing and has been newly laid with tarmac and marked out  However, the entrance remains gated, but I expect it will open this week in time for TT.

My vote would go for them to stay in Manchester.

When there was no funfair at TT 2009 wasn't there a huge outcry from the 'Manx public' with mass wailing and much criticism of the Government?

Personally I can't stand it, but would expect a similar increase in pitchfork sales should it ever be stopped.

Get rid of the fair and bring back the lap dancers and strippers. Neither is my particular bag but it's what is good for the TT.

(It was a while ago, in the Bike Shed, well they did ask and I counted 17 piercings, never found out where the other two were)

Well I saw that some of the barriers went down at Queens Promenade yesterday.

I could even do a U turn.

Shame they concreted over the bit in the middle. Would have been good for a trials course/scrambiling in TT!!

"Manx public" meaning a few chavs from the UK whinging on Facebook.

Can anyone cast any detail on the latest rumour;

the rails we bought aren’t compatible with the wheels on the trams. So we now need to buy new wheels....

And when we buy new wheels they won’t be compatible with the bogeys and so on

Strange you say that. An articulated trailer was being driven down Peel Road yesterday with 3 pairs of "rail type" wheels as its cargo

Longworth was down there yesterday with some sort of cast iron rig set up to test the rolling stock so perhaps that has some basis in fact. Be the icing in the cake of clusterfuckery over the prom if it’s true.

There was a horse tram going along the prom today on a test run so we can probably file that rumour under bollocks.
