his idea was some kind of floating city galleon https://www.moraceae.com/egg

The only way he’d have been able to build an Island in Douglas Bay was if it was made out of turds and clumps of seaweed.

In a new interview, Joe Quirk, president of the Seasteading Institute, said he wants to see 'thousands' of rogue floating cities by 2050, each of them 'offering different ways of governance'.”

Ahh Quirk! You can take the boy out of Onchan but you can’t take Onchan out of the boy. It’s only a matter of time before the DED mortgage the hospital to invest in this  

But Which member of Tynwald will be first to visit the floating island to advise on good governance practice?

............... or flies around shit.

Seriously, one big name was left off the list .......... Allan Bell. Perhaps the other advisors were cheaper than others.
