Have your say

A government department has been branded incompetent by the leader of Douglas Council for failing to address basic maintenance jobs around the capital.

Council leader David Christian said there was a plethora of routine repair jobs that had been neglected by the Department of Infrastructure (DoI) which he called the ‘Department of Incompetence’.

Top of his hit list was a failure to repair seafront railings mangled in the storms earlier in the year and poles supporting signs which have been unpainted for so long they have rotted through and become dangerous.
