OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

Well the cabinet office has a few former Manx Radio kiddies at their paid disposal.

I've been listening to the Mannin Line/Talking Heads/Mannin line for a few decades. You get to know the sort of thing people write/call in about and how they do it. OK, maybe changes a bit depending on the presenter.

But Wint has an awful lot of 'correspondents' who he doesn't name, who say stuff and ask short questions. It sounds like hot air he's guffing out himself to keep the ball rolling. The few times I have txted in he changes the wording out of all meaning and context.

I feel a manxforums challenge coming for Monday lunchtime.

Someone needs to suggest a word we need to get on air?

I am thinking cumrocket (google it, if you had invested 10k at the start of the week you would have made about 50k profit now)

Oooh that ‘Tony’ with the Estuary English accent got me wound up today.

There was a Tony on a few weeks ago giving his expert opinion on Douglas harbour silt and shifting sand on the beach. 

He reckoned there there was no need to built a higher sea wall, all you had to do was lower the beach. 
 

I still laugh about that whenever I think about it, which is most times I drive along the prom.

That will lower the Irish Sea?

No, but the beach is much higher than it ought to and used to be. Take the bit opposite the Crescent. 20 years ago, when that was The Venue, you could drop down onto the beach and have a piss against the sea wall. Now, you would be standing at street level and risking arrest.

Aye and the breakers just roll across the prom!

He was talking about rising sea levels, not waves splashing over.

You used to be able to get away with that at 6 foot 2, NYE year 2000

Maybe.

There were at least 10 steps down and now the sea just rolls onto the prom.

The top of the wall (which you can't see anymore) is even curved to break the waves - because it is a sea defense wall
