One of things I find reassuring is that despite the culture wars, we can all still agree on just how awful The ELO was.

You don't think that do ya? There must be some confusion. Don't bring me down pongo, shine a little love on the oldies and ELO, they're popular all over the world. I was on the last train to London once, it was twilight, I was calling America on the telephone line when I met a sweet talking woman, a proper living thing dressed in midnight blue. She had a strange magic, but as it turned out, she was actually an evil woman. Ended up having a showdown, at the same time the train was buffeting so I had to hold on tight and the memory of it, well, I can't get it out of my head but I thought it's the way life is meant to be in old England town.

I hope you turn to stone for that comment.

Do you know something that nobody else knows? You keep saying this, is it a gut feeling or have you met a man in a pub?

A combination. People I know have claimed that people they have spoken to are "in the know" with claims that there could be issues with the insurance/safety side of it. 

Normally I would discount it as "man down the pub" speak, but then you look at the state of 'the track' and it's a mess. Add to that the mess with Nobles and the lack of capacity.... I can't see it going ahead!

I see you are a bit of a "the glass is always empty" type of person then.

The landlord of the Ginger Hall needs to know, he is fully booked up with Germans and they will not part with their euros until the Government confirm  it is going ahead he says he needs to know by Christmas.   The problem is as I see it if the Government  make a statement saying it will definitely be on and something happens to stop it will they be liable and a lot of businesses sueing them in this world of litergation any public announcement has to be watertight and to be fair things are still a bit shaky , the Germans will all be double jabbed by then by mandate according to the media 😙 but there is still the road surfaces to address and the usual concern regarding Marshalls. The new temporary scoreboard could be sorted I expect.

Not really. I would quite like to know one way or another - if it's going ahead I will get flights booked off island for a few weeks. The world should be re-opening rather nicely by next May. 

why not go anyway and do us all a favour ??  :flowers:

I heard some time ago that a high level meeting and decision was scheduled for December, so not long to go.  Personally I’m doubtful - Marshals, roads, hospital, European lockdowns, lack of recent road racing anywhere else… All conspiring to make running TT difficult.  And then there’s the fallout from the Mercer case - do we know what that is yet?
