Manx Derv

Bill sent me this photo from the Isle of Man which he visited this week. £1.24p for diesel! we are moaning at £1. 13p over here, still I suppose the cost of transporting it must be taken into account.

The Isle of Man have their own laws. See my blog for a bit about it www.ukradiojock.co.uk

You would have thought that with their own laws they could keep costs down with less tax but there again I suppose that its only certain laws they have.

And another thing. Whilst in the Isle of Man they didnt mind acepting my english currency but back in England they will not accept my Isle of man £5 note anywhere. The value is the same. Is this an Isle of Man thing. I have no problems with scottish banknotes in England so why Isle of Man.

average is €1.19 for a litre of diesel in Dublin given the exchange rate we're actually doing OK I guess, makes a change

Edit;

The ULP on that board works out at $A2.39 and we're screaming because it's getting to $A1.50 here!

Bill: They do have their own tax system, it's well known as a haven for rich folks.

Roy: I guess it must be transport costs.

DB: Aye islands do tend to be more expensive though.
