Time to pension the old fella off..Every column is full of mistakes and that free office at Manx Radio could be better utilised by a Climate Change/Refugee/free buses campaigner..This weeks column was extra special as he did not realise that the Central Hotel had been redeveloped..Only 15 years ago.Time to get someone that really has a clue...

How is it that they can afford to pay some low IQ geriatric to write a load of BS every week yet they can't seem to be able to afford anyone to do basic proof-reading?

That column really is pretty sad and embarrassing. But is consequently exactly like every other page of the organ in which it appears.

He makes programmes for Manx Radio so I expect it's a quid pro quo arrangement.

He's a remarkable gentleman is our Tel, proper old school and I have huge respect for him and elders in general. Unlike some of you whippersnapper arseholes.

Nope - I have good manners and don't think it's classy to disparage a chap in his 80's who is still working hard and doing something lots of people enjoy.

Of course, since you don't, it must be rubbish. What do YOU do that adds up to anything?

The History Man on Manx Radio is brilliant stuff. Well researched and presented in a unique way. Always has been and most definitely still is.

I read the Isle of Man Newspapers every week and always enjoy the nostalgia stuff. Some excellent photos crop up.

I can't see the problem (I did wonder about The Cental Hotel thing though)

I look forward to History Man on a Sunday it is well researched and very interesting as for his newspaper column it is better than the rest of the rag which is crap.

Sounds like he has his very own fan club on Manx Forums. I'm sure he is not registered on here himself of course, just like all the other politicians, civil servants and media characters who do not have accounts on here.

You're obviously either far too young or 'new' to the Island to remember TC's contribution to (what was) proper radio and written journalism.
