look at the state of that shelter – all that sand under the seating proves the council aren’t maintaining these places. The seating is dilapidated, paint peeling. It is a disgusting and uninviting place for people to use – mind you, with the council spending so much money on spongers and asylum seekers, it is no wonder.

They spend more on fancy signs to tell us the floating bridge isn’t working than they do on cleaning this shelter. It’s a disgrace!!

Perhaps the I.O.W. Tourist board should do a special “Visit the Filthiest Shelters on the Island” feature. Terrible attack in a filthy shelter. The council can’t even clean shelters up, so there is no chance of them cleaning up their act either.

This is what happens when the NIMBY lot get their way. They destroy local business and force them to leave the island. People loose their jobs and turn to drink and drugs. The NIMBY lot are the cause of the decline on the island.

Fred, people who are unemployed don’t have to turn to drink and drugs you know..

They can use their time to help others, for example some choose to volunteer.

We are all responsible for our own decisions, so don’t blame it on others.
