Putin is apparently down to Soviet era kit in a lot of cases as they’re running out of microchips to power the new stuff they have. Meanwhile Ukraine is using top flight modern and smart US and UK hardware. You hope some sort of end game is happening. Putin also can’t hide the 75,000 or so deaths now either. A huge number of families must have seen their family members literally disappear into the ether. The penny must be dropping that far from a glorious death liberating a country your son was shipped off in badly equipped battalions to kill women and children and far from an honorable death or burial in some foreign field probably ended up being swept out of a mobile crematorium with a broom and left in a pile on the pavement. 

Yes this. And estimated losses in Afghan over 10 years were 15 thousand . Reality is there will be at best murmuring but likely much worse from the Russian population.

It's about 50,000 Russian military deaths - Putin will maybe end up with the bits of Donetsk and Luhansk they had in early February but will likely lose Crimea

It'd be astonishing if the people of Russia find this acceptable & are willing to carry on as before

I think , not that we will ever know, its more than that and they reckon in any conflict 3 times this get wounded . That could account for upwards of 200,000 casualties which if true no country or military can survive that in such a short time. And with winter looming too which will make it far harder for Russia. Ukrainans are fighting for there beliefs and their country. Only one winner in my eyes !

And he's lost many key techies who have defected *and* there's serious sabotage going on. As you say, the Ukrainians have seriously good stuff from the US & UK. Because of the satellite internet he can't block the general population off from the news.

Try any pub that didn’t serve food

Heard a shocker- man in pub talk so not confirmed at a Corporation property - The licencee claimed the COVID payments and also claimed similar for his other business downstairs- he had a subletting arrangement with the guy who served 150 Sunday lunches upstairs at the restaurant who when applying for funds was told no - that is why he operates the Chippy in Onchan now and doesn’t cook roasts at Douglas Corpy Golf House - so there’s one

With the tide turning slightly against Russia is there a nuclear threat now? Surely Putin cannot simply press a button and launch such? Where at? Controlled by whom? His military have to be the final launch mechanism in the process and would this be the final straw in Putins downfall? Is this when the politicians and top military, despite some of their  'removals' ,would say enough???

Putin has taken Russia back 50 years with all of this. He’s going to hopefully die soon knowing that his legacy will be more in line with that of Stalin than it is with the revered unifying leader he thinks he is in his own head. He’s a delusional psychopath. There can’t be much respect left for any Commander in Chief who would rather incinerate his own countrymen in mobile crematoria to hide his own battlefield failure incompetence.

Bit of good news for those that like the place. Just Pizza and Pasta is back this week on a Tuesday so only closed on Mondays. Fair play to the guy. I actually really love it there but not sure if I would ever be out and about on a Tueaday but lots will.

Agreed- went Friday prices sneaking up a touch but very good as always and change out of £20 a head - one of the better concepts in Douglas

Nice one . Yes I was in on Thursday with a visiting friend and for sure prices have increased a few times over the last months but totally to be expected tbh. Still great value , great food , nice house wine whats not to like.

Typically wrong again Curtain boy - the golf course costs the rate payers but you can use it at a discount that’s called a privilege  The business at the Golf House turns the Corpy a profit- I don’t know if it’s neutral- no teachers were off work during this post from an offshore Island not called Jersey
