City of Douglas

I have some Greater Celandine in my back yard, they can have that. Invasive, spreads like wildfire so it'll be at Derby Castle in a week! Toxic too, so any little buggers who think it's fun to trample through gardens will get a bit of a shock! Serve the little buggers right!!!

DBC being influenced by DEFA "re-wilding" policies maybe...? All in the name of "savings", naturally 😁

Influenced by ‘The Archers’ probably. I don’t follow the programme myself, but whenever I catch a snippet re-wilding is all they seem to go on about

re-wilding, jeez and then the idiots will complain about civil unrest because there is so little food or they will complain about the environment because of all the transport needed to bring in food from other parts of the world. That will be ok of course because we will have sailing ships, horses and carts and oxen and ploughs..... ah, strike that, oxen produce methane..............lol 😮

It really is a strategic PR screw up. It should have gone to Peel.

It should have gone to anywhere other than Douglas Shitty (or the Shitty of Douglas) whichever it’s going to be called.

No, that would be fucking nuts. Can you imagine giving novelty city status to a tiny fishing village that isn't even the biggest settlement on a small island, when big UK towns like Reading are missing out? Douglas is the capital and the seat of Government at least. It might not be a shining nirvana of fresh paint and functioning sea-walls, but it's the least-worst option. Giving it to Peel on the basis of a small parish-church-cathedral would be a joke - imagine the media coverage and the flak the decision would generate.

But then the same body gave Howie a CBE.

I take your point. I remember doing a facility tour the other week and seeing the flags being prepared and being told flowers to follow shortly thereafter. I’ll ask what the exact schedule is and to be honest, with stuff like the wall we (as in some of the councillors) are now also questioning what we’re being told re insurance and timelines. Despite what some in city hall keep telling us, communication still needs to be improved. Let me check the members bulletin when I get home to see if there’s anything in there. Otherwise I’ll email parks and ask. 

You are not suggesting that your own "cs" are not telling their political masters the whole truth are you ? 🙂 

Wonder where they got that idea fom?

Imagine giving it to a dilapidated shithole that isn't even maintained to a basic standard?

Drunk druggies and pissheads shouting and arguing their way home early Sunday morning after visiting 3:30am licensed establishments.

Yep, Douglas really is becoming a fucking city and all that goes with it.

Good point, well made. But just an observation - probably best not to use "delapidated shithole" when attempting a comparison to Peel, which literally dumps all of its shit out of a hole into the bay, past the broken skatepark, closed shops, abandoned hotels, silt-filled marina and ramshackle industrial estate. People will be confused which one you're referring to.

Cheers we had a great night.

Maybe invest in some earplugs if you don’t like the noise that comes with living in the middle of town?

Expect the same again tonight after the football this afternoon.

I really don’t get people who live in a town complaining about noise.  It’s fully expected whether it be people walking home after a night out or the council workers cleaning everything and do basic maintenance early in the morning before the roads and pavements get busy
