Southern Vectis eventually retimed the service 8 which now runs reasonably well, except perhaps in the Summer when those awkward things called passengers slow it down.
Comments on various forums suggest that Beverley Bell has made more punitive judgments than any other Traffic Commissioner and, not surprisingly, had more appeals against her decisions upheld!
