Recommended Posts

The Sefton was done for hygiene. It was about 10 years ago, but done they was.

And the Creg ny Baa about 15 ish years ago too, IIRC. Loft space full of pigeons all crapping through a hole in the kitchen ceilings onto the pots and pans below. :lol:

Then you'll be banning pretty much all leisure activities. Especially those reached by a car journey. That would have been 1770 potentially avoidable deaths last year in GB alone.

Down from over 3000 in living memory....

If the pigeons are in the loft and the kitchen is on the ground floor, is it possible for the crap to go through the room in between???

Fake News?

I think the kitchen was out the back in a single storied building with a loft. But the facts of the case are different to what is on here.

The message isn't getting across. Who is at fault for that?

Just now, the stinking enigma said:

There's not much chance of someone being killed by crossing a road 10 minutes before racing starts. Things are starting to get a bit hysterical now.

A new TT revenue stream, well done Rob!

And another one bites the dust...

I think a concerted effort to get the message across is needed, sooner that than just collecting huge fines until someone is killed.

What you on about, death is part and parcel of the event it’s what brings the “fans” to the isle in the first place. 

You’d think they’d be warning signs everywhere about not entering the “track”, so much so they’d be flyers on the boat and airports telling visitors such but you see the Gov are earning £1000 a time here so no way are they losing this cash cow.

Has anybody ever been killed at the north west or the Ulster gp by crossing the road while there was no racing on? 

They have had spectators hurt and killed but I'm not sure about crossing the roads? It's like everything on the IoM these days, we over react to everything without proper perspective. People need proper warnings, expecting them to know and understand the ramifications just because we do is not enough. many people are new to the event, every year!

I can see a lot of bands, read a lot of books, watch a lot of sunsets, see my team win a lot in 88 years. It's not a binary choice is it -  Live fast, die young OR have a long miserable life.

There's been nothing but carnage since the Tufty club folded.

Maybe the minister with responsibility for just about everything good on the island might be able to answer that...
