    You're not from Bedford originally, are you - mum's name Christine? My

    Well what has been happening for all the other nationality racers?
    seems to me the UK types will just fall into the same bucket.

    What exactly did you think was was going to happen eventually when the
    IoM started to cave into Westminster? It's been death of a 1000 cuts.

    The health thing was going on for at least a few months before the Customs thing in
    any case - the Customs thing was just something to be added to the recent financial
    woes for IOM residents of normal means.

    Come on, this *is* usenet :)

    I'd have to admit it's more of a guess - but in the case of the hospital
    we already must consider that most of the money is already spent - the
    buildings are there regardless of the TT, the doctors would still be there,
    the nursing staff etc.

    Non-competitors who bin their bike on Mad Sunday are likely to be covered
    by their motor insurance anyway for the 3rd party claim the IOM health
    service may have to make. That leaves competitors. They generally don't
    languish in Nobles - they are repatriated once their immediate injuries
    have been treated - so the cost in terms of healt provision boils down
    to the marginal cost (overtime, any extra doctors that have to work the
    fortnight) that would be needed to cover competitors injuries.

    I've not reached 40, and I've spent exactly 8 hours in Bedford in my
    entire life. Sorry :)

    To improve pay (for state funded work), you need to increase taxes.

    For the private sector, you need to increase cost to customer.

    But its all only theory, I want to see *real* numbers, I can make up
    figures as well.

    I think it is 100,000 visitors spending 100ukp each :p

    numbers based in fact and assuming lowest costs.

    50,000 visitors in TT week is a given statistic - look it up if you

    Steam packet costs £180 - I've got invoices to prove this.
    Even camping you'll spend another 100 on pitch and food for the
    week... more for hotels or homestay.
    £20 buys some memorbilia or other tat at the grandstand.

    Manx tax rate is 10%.
    You're not very good at extrapolating figures from easily obtainable
    data then.

    10% on revenue? Or 10% on added value? Or 10% on profit?

    I had a similar issue back in my uni days with an Indian postgrad
    running engineering seminars. It took several weeks before I worked out
    that 'jub' meant z.

    No, you are the one quoting, you post the link.
    Which is not money that goes to the IOM
    "The Isle of Man Steam Packet is owned by long-term investors including
    Macquarie Bank and several Australian pension fund"

    I parsed that as Man tat rate .... :)
    Not tried, I was playing the fag packet game :p
