Dickheads find something to protest about

Whilst I have no objection to the Celtic League’s view on Saudi operations in the Gulf, it has little bearing on the use of Ronaldsway by RAF flying training aircraft.

In an emergency situation when Valley runway becomes unavailable due to an aircraft incident there, any aircraft airborne at the time have to land at another airfield ( Crash Diversion Airfield).  There are a distinct lack of suitable airfields in the area and Ronaldsway is one of the few available, hence its very occasional use for this purpose.  In training for this very unlikely occurrence  trainee pilots will on occasions practice  an approach here whilst being accompanied by their instructor.  They will routinely not land and just carry out a low overshoot before returning to Valley.  These Hawk aircraft are training aircraft only and not capable of carrying any weapons.

They used to do an approach on the runway every day about 1230. Don't know if they still do.

Like calling people dickheads is insightful?

I thought it might be worth pointing out, that people are perfectly entitled to voice their concerns, to offer a little balanace

I didn’t call them dickheads...I called them wankers.

I just wonder if the above reactions would be the same if Bernie Moffatt were NOT involved?

Perhaps we should ban all protests and questioning of our Government, it's MHKs and civil servants!!!

You would think that these training jets were carrying out missions from Ronaldsway the way these tosses are carrying on.    Protests are fine but it is like an infection lately, there are better ways of approaching matters.   This lot asked the CM why they were allowed to train, he answered them with solid reasons and their reply was waffle, waffle we are looking into this.   Why the reasons are sound ?

What a shock to see a certain ex-douglas councillor and convicted drink driver at these protests. 

What sort of negative individual feels the need to protest against about every issue under the sun?

Find something creative to do!!

Seems you can't even hold a peaceful protest against your country's role in slaughtering innocent civilians these days without a load of angry, anonymous keyboard warriors attacking you on the internet.  When did the Iom become such a negative,  intolerant place?

With Bernie Moffatt being the most negative and intolerant person in a nation of negative and intolerant people.
