    Speaking of open, this story was published on the 1st May, it's now the 21st May. Any chance you could "have a word" and let the world know, before the election? "But other details of the trust will be published shortly and he says they have nothing to hide." Come on then Manx Radio, ask the question; "where are these details you told us would be released soon?" Nearly six weeks now and no MET website and no more info.

    Thanks John, it didn't seem to make any sense that you bother to turn up, but then they just bin your vote, makes sense now.

    I thought proxy votes were only valid if the person concerned was off the Island at the time. Did the guy talk to the returning officer or whoever about it? You are not quite right - proxies are allowed if they EXPECT to be off-Island. As we know planes out of here can be cancelled so it's deliberately a little grey. Yes, and they allowed them to cast another vote on a pink ballot paper. Don't know what happens with that - anyone else know? In both cases I know of English was not their first language. Great targetting by Team Woodford. If I know of two now and I've not been asking around, there must be hundreds. I hope MET, Dandara and the loony scaffolder are pleased to be associated with this. Great PR chaps! Well done Cretney joining in eh! Honestly thought Cretney was okay until tonight. Sorry about the language earlier but had to get that anger out. Take a look at : Schedule 2, election rules Section 37 and Section 42/4 (page 60 and 63) http://www.gov.im/lib/docs/cso/election/representationofthepeopleact1991.pdf Tendered ballot papers 37. (1) If a person representing himself to be- (a) a particular elector named on the register, whose name has not been ruled out as a person whose application to be treated as an absent voter has been allowed, or (b) a particular person named in the list of proxies as proxy for an elector, applies for a ballot paper after another person has voted either as the elector or as his proxy, the applicant shall, on satisfactorily answering the questions permitted by law to be asked at the poll, be entitled subject to the following provisions of this rule, to mark a ballot paper (a 'tendered ballot paper') in the same manner as any other voter. (2) A tendered ballot paper shall- (a) be of a different colour from the other ballot papers; (b) instead of being put into the ballot box, be given to the presiding officer and endorsed by him with the name of the voter and his number in the register of electors and set aside in a separate packet. (3) The name of the voter and his number on the register of electors shall be entered on a list (“the tendered votes list”). (4) In the case of a person voting as proxy for an elector, the number to be endorsed or entered together with the voter's name shall be the elector's number. And then: (4) The returning officer shall not count any tendered ballot paper I may be interpreting it wrong, but it seems that if the proxy get there before you, you've lost your vote.

    If he was a short angry bloke your probably right ... All this idle speculation is pretty grim though and likely dangerous as anyone can be arrested and then released without charge it suggests absolutely no improper action at all at this stage which is why names have not been released. Alternatively speculating that certain people have been arrested when they have not been is opening the door to defamation of character. PS PAT: Our Kev is 60 next week according to Wikipedia so your talking through your arse (yet again) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Woodford Unless I'm very much mistaken, 60 years is Diamond, and next week is definately within the next 12 months.

    No one said it would be easy, just seems wrong somehow to be carrying on with this mess hanging over it. I don't ever remember police getting involved in elections in the past, especially by-elections.

    So I take it that the vote goes ahead, even though there is the possibility that one of the candidates has not been playing by the rules, and pending further enquiries, that candidate could be removed from the final results. This could then render the public winner a looser, and make all genuine votes for that candidate a waste of time and effort. Have I got that right?
  13. No you dont, i worked for a garage on them for a couple of years and it's basically replace it before it breaks or snaps, money was not relevant, clutches, cambelts suspension arms, brake disc's yadda yadda yadda, the rule we used to go by was if you couldn't guarantee it would last 5000 miles ie to the next service then replace it regardless, i could do 1.8 diesel escort clutches in just over 1/2 an hour at one point Bet they never got charged just half an hour though

    So to paraphrase Heifer, you have to choose between two candidates that may possibly be partially funded by undisclosed sources and one that is definantly bankrolled in the thousands by secretive shady characters intent on winning an election by hiring a known face and throwing money at it. I note the ad agency behind Woodfords campaign also work do alot of work for a large local property developer... Again you miss the point, Kevin disclosed the fact from the outset, and the Trust is fully compliant in all aspects as the Trustees are professional and highly qualfied and of the highest intergrity. Both Kate and Chris have not disclosed by way of their organisations as to how they are being funded, as you say yourself "may possibly be partially funded by undisclosed sources" and both Kate and Chris say they stand for openess, transparency and being held to account, well they are being now held to account, but we have nothing other than a wall of silence!!! Did anybody read the letter in the Examiner tonight? Nobody reads the papers then? You have a fixation with a letter in the paper, a paper I refuse to pay for,(sorry Mr Butt,) why don't you paraphrase it for us. Did you write it?

    I don't think the program was live. The studio webcam showed an empty studio but perhaps because there was half a dozen guests MR might have used a bigger room. What is the fascination with LibVan accounts? Are they supposed to have received millions from some shady oligarch?

  20. Its part of certain Ramsey residents "Keep Ramsey sh*t" campaign. The same trick worked with the marina - most of the deadbeats voted to keep the general area a complete sh*tehole full of mud and floating dog turds and sticks of wood because apparently Ramsey's intrinsic Manx character is wrapped up in it being a festering sh*thole that nobody wants to visit. Saving the Pier is simply an extension of Ramsey's quest for ever more sh*tness as a protest against economic progress elsewhere on the Island. The fact that some cretins think that £9m is money well spent to fish and piss into the sea from a Victorian relic when the town centre is dead and badly in need of a big capital spend say's it all really. I'd vote to give the residents of Ramsey £9m of economic spend any day as Douglas has sucked money out of the taxpayer, but not to spend on a useless relic that has no benefit to society whatsoever. The words Ramsey and progress rarely appear in the same sentence. This gets my vote for the most sensible post of the week.

    An interesting result from looking up a certain domain name. Particularly the address of the registrant. Those of you who would care to do this might like to go to http://www.easywhois.com/ and enter the relevant domain name. It may be unfair and unwise to draw conclusions from a single piece of information as I'm sure there could be many innocent reasons for this and it should be noted that the information is of course in the public domain. Unfair or not, it's information available to anyone with a web connection: http://kwiom.com/ Registrant: Allied Services Limited Mr Dale-Beeton Dandara Group HQ IOM Business Park Braddan, Braddan IM22SA GB Domain name: KWIOM.COM Administrative Contact: Mr Dale-Beeton, Mr Dale-Beeton Dandara Group HQ IOM Business Park Braddan, Braddan IM22SA GB +44.8449411000 Fax: +44.8449411000 Technical Contact: On Behalf of a customer, StreamlineNet 154 Southgate Street Gloucester, Gloucestershire GL1 2EX GB +44.8449411000 Fax: +44.1332864161 Registration Service Provider: StreamlineNet Limited, 448449411000 441452561804 (fax) http://www.streamline.net Web Hosting Made Easy. If MR have not misreported him, Mr McLaughlin must be bringing cases of gross misconduct for at least two employees. Dandara's name has been linked to politics and indeed a specific candidate by their actions. Just a little reminder so we are all clear.
