Expect dozens more, even worse when Ryde is doubled in size along with all the other quality tenants which will then fill our Isle.

This IS the good times.

Vote the council out but Bob Seely ‘in’.

Why only “suspicion” of disqualified driving and no insurance? These things surely only take a few minutes to be checked.

Probably the same silver Fiesta that kept hard braking infront of us then reversed at us in an effort to create an accident.

Hang on! Has no-one blamed the mainland yet?
