So, we have a world fuel crisis, mass murder and millions of refugees needing help from the Ukraine, our local health service struggling to deliver services, and then I stumbled across this absolute Wankpuffin on youtube..I mean, seriously, what a disgraceful circus. Why is the speaker not pulling people like him to one side and telling him to stop making a tit of himself and making a laughing stock of the Isle of Man? FFS..

Please Stu Peters - can't you take him outside and give him a slap?

It's hard to believe that nearly 2000 people voted for this buffoon who alarmingly studied politics at university.

This is like something off a comedy sketch. Is it any wonder this place is left to rack and ruin if this is the best we have.

Stop all the antique language, streamline the system, lower the number of MHKs, make all island voting and get on with running and maintaining what we have got.

Just get on with a modern, supportive legislature, stop the waffling and get the job done!

So there.

Yay it’s not about DBC for once :) 

Ah ah. That sounded like a challenge. I quick search revealed this smoking gun.

Looks like the entire Horse Tram debacle was a joint enterprise between DBC and "Gull" 🤣

I bet they worked together on the new (despite the fact that "spend a penny" is a well known slang term for wetting the lettuce) pay to pee policy too.

 

Department buys horse tram stables

Monday, 23 April 2018

The horse tram stables at Tramway Terrace have been bought by the Department of Infrastructure from Douglas Borough Council (DBC) for £600,000. 

This supports the Department’s plans for the regeneration of Douglas Promenade and the future operation of the horse trams. 

A key factor in buying the buildings is to allow the Summerland site to remain clear and a more attractive proposition for investors. A planning application to construct temporary horse tram facilities on the site was approved last year. However, after reviewing a number of options the Department considered that buying the existing building will prove more cost effective, as well as helping to retain part of the Island’s heritage infrastructure. 

Member for Public Transport Jason Moorhouse MHK said:

‘The stables will continue to be used for its intended purpose, while investment will also be made to secure the fabric of the property and improve welfare facilities. 

‘With the promenade redevelopment project set to begin later this year and the recent application to rebuild Strathallan depot, this is an exciting time for the horse trams, and the wider heritage transport network more generally, with commitments being made to ensure they continue to attract tourists for many years to come.’ 

Council Leader David Christian said:

‘The Council is pleased that these negotiations have been successfully completed. Thanks to this welcome investment in the capital the site can now be re-purposed and will complement the refurbishment of the promenade and regeneration of Douglas town centre.’

So there.

Problem is, that all that SHIT keeps a lot of people in very, very lucrative careers. So it ain't going to end anytime soon.

The Mental Health Act 1930 did away with the terms 'lunatic' and 'asylum' in relation to people suffering mental ill-health, and continuing their use reinforces the stigma which still clings to patients in this unfortunate position. Perhaps the OP could acknowledge that the use of such terms by way of abuse is inappropriate and inaccurate, and find a better way of expressing dislike of a politician.

However current Manx legislation uses the word lunatic 21 times and asylum 71 times
