Note I'll try and keep updating this post with links and information as the thread and the election develops.

 

 

===Original Post==

 

 

So Onchan has -

 

Earnhaw - who doesn't think it's a minister's role to understand a bill he's proposing.

Karran - who can't string a sentence together

Quirk - who has done nothing since election.

 

Vs

 

Brian Stowell - shiny suited angryman who hates recycling

Vader - http://election.manxradio.com/news/news-item?newsitem=52968&newstitle=Candidate%20criticises%20government's%20priorities

 

Heaven help them!

It's a grim list isn't it? I'll vote for Peter, for the giggles he provides.

James Corrin, Onchan candidate.

 

The election is only likely to provide us with a worthwhile political choice if a diverse range of opinions can be articulated.

We need candidates to show that they have the ability to dissent when called upon to do so. James most certainly has that ability. Let’s not knock it.

It is probably going on for a decade since he raised hell on here, and I would defy anyone to say he wasn’t forthright and outspoken. He has worked within, and kicked against, the establishment. He was not known to be either tactful or diplomatic. However in the intervening ten years or so we have all changed and matured.

Personally, I salute him for having the balls to stand against Peter Karran.

I for one wish him well.

I wonder does he intend to fight for Muslim Onchanites without fear or favour?

You're right. There's only one court jester position in Government and Peter's going to be hard to shift.

No, you're right.
