NORMAL SERVICE RESUMED ON MAN

More good news today, as the Isle of Man returned from its 24 hour lockdown after a mass outbreak of cases (6) the day before.

How on earth did they cope on Saturday ?

Here’s a group of Manx pubgoers, all forlorn, resigned to a picnic on the hill as the Albert was shut.

I’ve said enough about Man; the coastline, the boisterous pubby atmosphere, the £2.70 pints.

And still the media don’t know it’s an self-governing island; only last week a presenter asked a publican what tier Boris had placed them in.

I’d love to be there now, walking the coast,

having a table-service free pint in Ramsey, eating Queenies in Peel.

But they don’t want me back, yet, so I’ll just have to look at this virtual pub on Google Maps and get you to guess it.

The Okells is only £3, but I’m sure you’ll be treated like royalty.

When we’re allowed back.

  1. Blimey. A day late and it’s still a bit lean on postings for some reason. 😉

    “More good news today, as the Isle of Man returned from its 24 hour lockdown after a mass outbreak of cases (6) the day before.”

    Good for them! Unlike those idiots in New Zealand who shut down their largest city for one (1!) case of the UK variant. Sheesh

    “Here’s a group of Manx pubgoers, all forlorn, resigned to a picnic on the hill as the Albert was shut.”

    I remember that photo! It certainly sticks in one’s memory. 🙂

    “I’d love to be there now, walking the coast,”

    Looks luverly.

    “But they don’t want me back, yet, so I’ll just have to look at this virtual pub on Google Maps and get you to guess it.”

    Argh! You snuck in another Guess the Pub! No wonder everyone stayed away. 😉

    Cheers
