If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would think that all the govt shills were out to bury discussion on today's evidence on the handling of covid.

And given the lamentable government performance it’s self-evident why they’d want to. Quayle was embarrassing. Quayle is embarrassing. So let’s bang on about welding tracks.

If ever the emasculated and clueless nature of the administration that has achieved nothing over the past 5 years had its essence captured and exposed to the light it was that PAC session today.

Did they used to weld them previously? I was under the impression the Victorians did it some other way , but I might be wrong. I think the welding is imported from high speed rail lines, not at all sure it had been done much or even at all here previously,  which would beg the question why does it need doing now?

Could be wrong though.

Seems to be a lot of experts on welding railway tracks on here.

I've seen they're using concrete sleepers now too. I guess they last pretty much forever? What was the life of the wooden ones?

This is the sort of subject that Isle of Man Newspapers should run an article on. Discuss with Isle of Man Railway engineers if necessary, but you would think considering the original cause of the interest, Butt & Co would have been on it to inform us.

But they just seem to print whatever the cabinet office gives them. And obituaries and stuff. OK, no need for 'investigative reporting' (yawn) but just some articles and information of topical interest that can't be easily found anywhere else.

Dick waving and IOMG propaganda on the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece this morning. 
 

75% of the population has had a Covid jab. The vaccination program makes the island a world leader. 
 

its so blatant that this piece comes straight out of the IOMG Cabinet/DHSC Teams of Spin Doctors who must spend every waking hour, collating the ‘approved’ news for the Great Manx Public.  The news being sanitised for fear of offending the old grannies, but triumphalised so IOMG are positively glowing. 
 

They can boast when everyone has been given their 2 injections. Also the borders are truly open, and there is a prospect of additional booster injection program. 
 

Meanwhile the Public Accounts Committee was told how the Steam Packet asked Government for vaccinations in December 2020, but it wasn’t until February 2021 that it was treated as a priority. HRH The Chief Minister, sounds like he is buck passing. Not good at all.

Another one who's apparently 'done his own research'.

 

But only after running up a Legal Aid bill which his former Advocate apparently described as " a shocking waste of Taxpayers money".

The waste isn’t what the advocate did, it’s the fact that the product of research and witness interviews are now being thrown away because the defendant is representing himself, sacked the advocate, and running the common law courts, Magna Carta ( which doesn’t actually apply directly to the IOM, and the clause he relies on only applied to Barons, and was repealed in the same decade it was introduced ), no jurisdiction, Freeman defence.

Hes accused of arranging a meeting. He may, or may not, have a defence to that. Smoke and mirrors and Gaia aren’t that defence.

said it when it happened, all he had to do was organise it on the quiet, but no he had say fuck you and splash it all over facebook. I was always find it interesting that the conspiracy theory, antivax , chips in the vaccine nutters all use facebook who are probably (after Apple) the most notorious for 'collecting' information on their users and use it to direct stuff into their feeds.

Apple have some of the strictest industry measures in place for protecting their customers from exactly this type of intrusion.

Their business is selling you hardware and services. Not selling you.

The police had a word on him and gave him the opportunity to fight another day, instead he posted an 8 minute long video where he effectively popped his love spuds in the lions mouth and started flicking the big cats tackle with a wet towel
