Who paid for the fireworks? They're a bit shit in comparison these days, aren't they? Maybe it's because of how good movies are now, but fireworks always seem a bit old hat. There are good ones in big cities sometimes, but any on the IOM just seem a bit shit.

At least these fireworks weren’t celebrating 5 deaths.

Ramsey ones are always good, although I'm not a fan of the music they play alongside them - music is subjective, after all.

The day the display is held to hardcore punk is the day you know that I've taken over. It'll be fecking ace, I'm telling you.........

They just seem a bit underwhelming to me. Once you've seen one IOM Fireworks display you've seen 'em all. And God help you if you've seen a "proper" one across.

it is what it is. I still like the Ramsey ones despite being a 2x come-over. Another plus is that we tend not to get some of the shitty behaviour you can get in other places.

Just doesn't seem a great use of public funds (if it was) for the output. It's been ages since I last had anything to do with organising a fireworks display, but when I did (over 20 years ago) it was approx £1k a minute. Presumably it's gone up from there. Could've employed a Nurse for a year instead of having Port Erin's display yesterday...

Ha ha, where does this one end? The better it is, the more it will cost. I think a couple of firework displays a year are the least of our problems when it comes to governments wasting money (And I imagine the fireworks were payed for by the l.a - do they employ nurses?). By the time the prom and liverpool dock are finished, we could probably all have our own personal nurses! I'm sure lot's of people enjoyed it, we all need an occasional break from the every day

You stick to your cheese wrapping, I'll take the fireworks !😜.
