  1. Past hour
  2. It's conceivable that something like that could happen. God knows there are enough fucking Hi-Viz Hitlers out there every TT. They can't wait to wield their 'power' (as they see it). If any marshals were responsible then hopefully they get the arse sued off them too! The TT is a power trip for two many of these fucking clowns. It's only a matter of time until "The Big One" when there will be 10+ fatalities in a single incident - they'll be scrambling away from their Hi-Viz and thermos flasks quicker than rats off a sinking ship. The Mercer incident should be considered a warning shot for what's yet to potentially come.
  3. Just imagine if anyone was sad enough to do a count of all the cars parked in tesco and shoprite car parks daily.
  4. Bearing in mind that these rails and their foundations are also proposed to carry the bigger electric trams in time...?

    TT 2018

    My previous understanding of this is that riders were returned from the Glen Tramman area without authorisation from Race Control. Marshals at Glen Tramman made the decision without authorisation. Other marshalling points where riders had been stopped (eg Sulby Bridge) held their riders pending Race Control decision. If there are loose cannons out on the circuit the C of C may not have known about it? It might be best to wait until further facts become available?
  6. Why don't you all just set the 'Neil Down' character to ignore? He seems to cause a lot of unnecessary upset based on the posts about him.
  7. Read Thatchers Torpedo by Tam Dalyell.

    TT 2018

    I can understand your attitude due to the fact that you don't know exactly what occurred. Perhaps it will come out in the case?
  11. Google "Walthamstow Memories" which is a communal website...enter my name somewhere in there..Or Google "Essex Boy Walthamstow and Rainham 1949-1959"...That is all the text I have on line the rest is printed paper...As regards SEAX..Google it and enter my name it only lists some of the topics the others are not under my name but very extensive...I am not going to do it for you...
  12. I thought PSM were going from 9 commissioners to 5?
  13. Today
  14. No one has admitted anything yet.
  15. If it had been single track (with a passing place at Villa or where ever) who would have complained? Double track is crazy and unnecessary.
  17. Wow - just fucking wow Max - Gary Thompson neglected his duty as has been admitted by his Employers.

    Genius dog

    A Douglas butcher is shooing away a dog from his shop when he sees £20 and a note in the dog’s mouth which says “5 lamb chops, please.” Amazed, he takes the money, puts a bag containing the chops in the dog’s mouth, and quickly closes the shop. He follows the dog and watches him wait for a green light, look both ways, and trot across Lord Street to Douglas bus station. The dog checks the timetable and sits on a bench. When the Peel bus arrives, the dog walks around to the front and looks at the number, then boards the bus. The butcher follows, dumbstruck. As the bus travels out past Snugborough the dog takes in the scenery. In Glen Vine he stands on his back paws to push the “stop” bell, leaves the bus and the butcher follows him off. The dog runs up to a house and drops his bag on the step. He goes back down the path, takes a big run, and throws himself - Whack! - against the front door. He does this again and again. No answer. So he jumps over the wall, walks around the garden, beats his head against a window, jumps back over the wall and waits at the front door. A big guy opens it and starts cursing and shouting at the dog. The butcher runs up and screams at the guy: “What the hell are you doing? This dog’s a bloody genius!” The owner responds, “Genius, my arse… It’s the third time this week the twat has forgotten his keys!”

    Yes, but that was his own neglect.
  20. 100% Responsibility of the top ranked Individual - reference the ongoing Hillsborough case (s) of neglect of public duty.

    TT 2018

    If a rider who enters a life threatening race suffers a severe injury during that event gets paid millions of pounds in compo, then the TT and similar events need to stop, unless the compo is paid out without the taxpayer or motorist having to pay for it. The ACU may or may not have admitted liability , but the riders are also aware of procedure. They do not take instruction from a marshall to travel in reverse direction, unless they are escorted front and rear by TMs. So many things wrong with this case, that should not be smoothed over by a big payout. Where is the line drawn. ? What did the families of Mac Hobson and his passenger get ? AFAIK it was fuck all. Almost 300 have died on the mountain course and little was ever done for the families left behind. What did the family of the rider in KM get when a marshall ran out in front of him, killing them both ??? Situation is mental.
  22. Probably when that fella Leatherbarrow ran it. Really odd one. Since he left, they really upped their game
