  1. This thread is a pretty solid indication of why popularly electing the chief minister is a poor idea: People posting misunderstandings or incomplete information as absolute facts Most people don't know how National Insurance is calculated or used, but think they've got what it takes to competently assess policy Endless ranting about minutiae like wigs, or the Bishop Believing the government should be doing much more with much less, but will then complain about any cuts in services
  2. Where he talks about investigations on his own time and the taxpayer savings; does anyone know what he’s actually referring to?
  3. I assumed it was just his Twitter feed, but as an "NGO"
  4. Surely you can't have it both ways though? You can't say people are smart enough to pick a representative with integrity and competence, but apparently aren't able to make it out the door without tripping down the steps. This is what is so often over-looked. There's no reason to think we would be better off with 10 MHKs or 50 when at 95% of people probably can't explain National Insurance or how capital spending differs from revenue spending. There's a weird expectation now that the state can address problems people cause for themselves.
  5. If only: https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/ronaldsway-fence-will-be-built/
  6. Not sure what this really achieves. Have better CM candidates previously missed out due to MLC votes?
  7. We should probably just bring back a hereditary monarchy
  8. To be fair, a community initiative worked for the Ramsey Post Office
  9. Hopefully this whole debacle has put to bed the idea that direct democracy is a good idea
  10. I've usually pre-booked a car at about £60. Just an option if you don't find anyone! https://www.airport-pickups-london.com/
  11. I'm surprised there are many permanent staff. Most of the staff at shows at the Gaiety look like volunteers, and you'd think other event staff are employed on a casual basis rather than full-time.
  12. There's been rumours since September. AXA trying to get shot of all their Wealth business in the UK.
