I think it should stay. Saying "oh, is it ok to put a big cocknballs on a hillside then" is just stupid. It's a manx 3 legs fgs.

Good on you Bryan.

Let me help you with spelling,  it's "cock and balls". 

Other than that, I agree, it's hardly offensive.

I see from the Indy article that RTC actually engaged a drone (and presumably an operator? At what cost to Ramsey ratepayers please, Rhumsaa?) to fly over it and get footage of this "blot on the landscape", one of the complaints about which is that it can already be seen from most of the North of the Island 😂 

I've not read the article but I don't believe RTC have been employing drone pilots in this capacity, I don't recall it having been mentioned, have not seen any reference to the end result and see no reason why RTC would be doing that

If only Onchan district commissioners shared that approach to using superfluous cash.

I've had to crop this a bit to get round the MF upload data limit but as can be seen, iom newspapers are quite clearly stating that RTC hired a drone for the footage. So either they're wrong or the Board don't know?

Yes, that is pretty much what I said

IF this article is correct (and being iom newspapers it would probably be best to verify it?), does it not seem a little excessive for RTC to be hiring drone services to obtain footage of an issue that doesn't even lie within their area of jurisdiction? Surely it would be up to Lezayre Commissioners or MU to obtain such footage, rather than Ramsey ratepayers?

With the amount of Board discussion also reported in this matter (to include released statements and quoted "mixed feelings" amongst Board members) it does seem a little strange that you would have no knowledge of the engagement of such services?

I am pretty confident that the Newspaper is incorrect.

Well a zoomed in shot from your front garden could have achieved much the same result!

I tried it with my phone, it produced only a marginally clearer image that the papers ran with
