Shoot to Thrill

Surprised they haven't introduced a form of CGT on properties to date.

It was quite some time ago MOB but what I meant was that taxes are not hypothecated which means that it cannot be specifically spent on roads , whatever politicians might have promised .


You forgot to change your user profile, Sotte.

Having so many profiles, your bound to slip up every so often.

There also needs to be a better way to go through there as a cyclist, including around the corner as well (near the cafe and beyond), pedestrians and cyclists have to share far too small a pavement.

Man faces jail for cocaine smuggling


Not for five years make it life we don't want this rubbish in our Island.Ban all direct flights from Liverpool would also be a good idea.


Deport him ,and he should not be allowed in for five years, that is if he has no

It is very unlikely that after May 2018 Eddie and several of his inco...


Hotels and guesthouses have swimming pools and ensuite bathrooms therefore they are being charged based on this water usage for waste. This concept of a charge is so flawed but what do we expect !!!
