The difference, Dilli, is that one was built as a for profit private enterprise and the other will be funded by the ratepayers. If the Willaston ones were being built by Dandara for example, they'd hit the market for LESS than what the the Corpy are proposing to spend to build them. The costings are bullshit.

It shouldn't really bother me, not living in Douglasland, but it does, you're being taken for a ride.

Isn't this the benchmark for any govt/corpy build? find the lowest price then double it.

His idiotic support for ending the free movement of people in europe will have cost him. And deservedly so. Fucking brexiteers can all fuck off.

If we broke down society into 3 categories, Poor, doing OK and doing better than OK. I think we would find that, compared to 60 years ago, all are doing 'better'.

Maybe having to live on ready meals and spending £ 60 on every Saturday night out is too high a price to pay for the previous generation???

House ownership was and still is out of reach for the 'Poor', a struggle for the 'doing OK' and still a 'bloody big mortgage for 'better than OK' who were not necessarily University educated? Some kind soul invented the term 'Entrepreneur', that gave everyone equal opportunity, didn't it ???

Nothing has really changed!

Totally correct. I am a Douglas ratepayer player and also a supporter of David Christian. I just can’t get my head around these costings.

Absolutely mental what is being proposed. Douglas Council charge their tenants under half what people pay in the private rentals field, yet don’t operate any means testing . Appalling.

I would hope that any prospective Douglas councillor would go in there primed with the right questions about how the hell someone has come up with the costings for that proposed block of flats in Willaston. Because they're insane.

I think you have to  deduct the cost of 'other' facilities before you divide by the number of 'homes'?

Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

He is a smart man and knows his stuff. There is nobody more tuned in to Douglas than him.I can’t understand all the negativity about David. If we had 24 like him in Tynwald,  we would be getting somewhere

Dilli, he's a dictator and with a reduced council, he will get more of 'his' own way!

Just look at his 'Fairy Lights' position.  ''It's too late to discuss this now''!!! Did they announce the loss of the these lights? Would it be impossible to reinstate them?

There is an inner cabal in DCorp with Christian at the Top, reduce the opposition, He has fewer to question his opinion?

They announced the lighting situation about 3 years ago. Keep up at the back

Plus, they are all elected.

They announced the LED lighting, did they say 'without' the fairy lights???

Even so, would to be impossible to put them back?

Fairy lights, shmairy lights, I don;t care, my concern is the disinformation from Christian!!!!

That's the Council Leader that we need ???

What the actual fuck are the fairy lights. If you mean the festoon lights, then yes. Everything out in the open. They really can’t factor in “ stupid”. You of all people should know that.

Shouldn't that be Cream Scones? Devon insists Tynwald outlaws 'Jam first'?

See I thought that I'd made quite a good joke.

Now my turn to say I don't understand you drift! There are  240 volts to the top of the Pole, the saving comes from the lower current drawn, 240 volts could be used to install low wattage , LED 'Fairy Lights' at a reduced cost to previous years full power lights.

Where did the decision arise NOT to reinstate these lights come from? An oversight in informing the public of this decision OR a decision to deliberately NOT inform the public of their 'christians'  decision???
