    "while only two formal complaints over racism had been reported to the IOMFA over the past five years, a wider problem in the Manx game may be "hidden" if incidents were going unreported." -

    So there aren't enough actual incidents to make an issue out of it so they're going to keep looking until they find something. "may be hidden". "if incidents were going unreported".

    https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/diversity-and-inclusion-survey-launched-in-island-high-schools/

    From the audio - "Unconscious, implicit biases that COULD BE happening"

    "It's not that we're just looking at race,  homophobia, sexism, disability....."

    So more government allowed/pushed undermining/communism in our schools.

    "It will go out to all high school students and help to form an inclusion and diversity strategy.

    The document is being circulated in conjunction with People of Colour Isle of Man and the Department of Education".

    In the middle of a pandemic, still pushing every agenda.

     

    In more diversity news -

    "Thirty-nine-year-old Hasan Gogebakan of Christian Road appeared before magistrates at Douglas courthouse.

    He pleaded not guilty to a single charge of indecent assault in Kerrocoar Close in Onchan on 10 October.

    Prosecution advocate James Robinson told the hearing a woman ordered food from Flaming Great Kebabs on Bucks Road in Douglas, and Gogebakan delivered it to her door at around 2:30am.

    Mr Robinson told the court as the woman paid him, Mr Gogebakan brushed his hand against her groin – before doing it again as he shook her hand.

    He’s then said to have touched her crotch a third time while trying to hug her before leaving.

    Magistrates heard the upset woman called police, who arrested Mr Gogebakan at his home and interviewed him at police headquarters.

    He answered “no comment” to all questions."

    Well, at least you're showing everyone exactly who you are.

    i agree but they set the precedent with the ill-advised last lockdown so they have to follow their own protocol otherwise what was the point last time out.

    What was ill-advised about the last lockdown?

    Ever been to LA? Specifically walking around Hollywood at night? It's not hard to see why people of think trans people as deviants if you have, absolutely mental. 

    Been a hub of deviancy for much longer than we've had any real number of transgender people out in public!

    What's stopping a man walking into the ladies' loos anyway?

    Nobody ever seems to want to answer this. Nobody goes through years of counselling, transitioning, pharmaceuticals and in some cases surgery just to gain access to the women's bathrooms. Men who want to go into the women's bathrooms and abuse women just use the door.

    They could be though, right?

    I dont think she stated everyone would be?

    Do either of these tweets sound like they're suggesting there are trans people who exist who aren't "men in dresses"?

    You could be a child molester. I don't think you'd appreciate being called one though.

    There does seem to be a militant wing though which seems to be looking for something more than equality, a bit like the BLM movement. I'm happy with equality, equal rights, opportunities and treatment. I'm against attempts to manipulate things to favour any group of people over another, no matter who they are! 

    Whenever there's a militant white person, or a militantly heterosexual person, or a militantly Christian person, they get dismissed as an individual moron. When there's a militant black-rights person, or a militant trans person, or a militant gay person, their existence gets used frequently in threads like these to disparage the movement as a whole.

  7. I've heard from reliable people that there are a couple of L96 kicking around too.

    It's sensible to have an armed response force here. So long as we don't end up like America where every cop has thousands of dollars of equipment and tens of thousands of dollars of SWAT style training in order to respond to, mostly, traffic and social problems. A dedicated small force trained highly is sensible.

    Vaccination will be finished by end of June.  So it may be a good idea to do the MGP as a tester.  See how many end up in hospital,  stretching the health service. 

    Either this is sarcasm or we have differing opinions on what "a good idea" is!

    Did i hear right that 2 people were rescued by the fire service? I thought that place was long derelict.

    Living in a property behind it so far as I recall from the reports.

    Even when I was at university, the consumerist model of education was slowly creeping in. Give the customers students what they want.

    Who's teaching who ? The whole idea of what Education is has been completely turned upside down in my lifetime.

    When I went to Uni, which was less than two decades ago, there was none of this. Perhaps its not my generation demanding changes to suit them...

    No . Not at all  . Do you have principles ?  Do today’s kids have principals? 
    No thought not. That is the basis of your future  government?  Well done.

    I have many principles. One of them is to let someone explain their positions before critiquing their positions, rather than laying into someone based on their past and appearance.

    Yes, today's kids have principles. As you've undoubtedly noticed (and complained about) re: climate change, anti-racism, etc.

     

    We agree on almost nothing. That's not a surprise nor new. But normally you're at least a bit reasonable about things.

    Please  explain  why I am being a dickhead .

    My kids don’t drink, smoke or take drugs. Is that what the problem is ?

    No, the problem is that you're railing against someone who wants to do right by the island and its inhabitants just because you object to his past, his appearance and his occasional bit of weed. And worse than that, you're now calling him an idiot for those things, saying his only chance of votes is "sympathy votes" even though many young will agree with many of his policies, and generally coming full-bore at someone who's doing their damnedest to be honest and open and improve the place they live.

    It's just a bit.. dicky innit?

    my two have fuck all in common with this idiot.

    You know you're being a bit of a dickhead right?

     

    Also "clear heads each day"? How many of our current MHKs drink regularly? I know you grew up in the "reefer madness" propaganda, but you know things have moved on a little since then right?

    They're all part of this loony tune set up https://www.commonlawcourt.com/cases/

    The IOM Courts did this in response https://www.judgments.im/content/J2719.htm

    I once overheard Shem Allanson (Registered dietitian nutritionist, Skype & online dietitian nutritionist, Gut, bowel, IBS and gluten specialist) claim that her IQ "went up 20 points" when she gave up gluten.

    Must have been negative prior.

    I've just listened to her interview with Paul Moulton, in relation to her dad she says that the constituents will be getting a "two for one deal"! I think it's fair yo say he is central to her campaign...

    Err, she says "Some people have said to me 'it's like a two for one deal'". Which isn't what you wrote.

    The interview is here

    Pongo, you can't base your choice of employee on social media comments!

    Lots of places do. And if you think that's bad you should try getting DV clearance!

    I disagree, he's putting the pressure on, which is absolutely needed. He's done a better job there than I've ever heard him do before.

    Really though? Agitatedly asking the same question that's been answered, and answered pretty well, multiple times already. Just comes across as desperate for a doom headline.
