    I believe that Daphne C is going to float the delegates across on her back while they use those extra wide Manx Tartan Lapels as paddles??? Those lapels, along with wearing that Red outfit while showing her face have to be her 'faux pas' in publicity seeking? Where's your pride Woman?
  2. Is this snake oil stuff any good for Dry Itchy Ear? Where do I get it? ( Apart from in my ears, that is.)!

    Legco should not be for defeated or retiring MHKs looking for an easier life?

    You seem to be a fan? Actually I quite like him and his performance in the Keys. You suggest that what he is asking for is a similar job, nearly as much pay but with a reduced workload?
  6. Manx Gas say that there isn't an alternative to price rises but many English companies have closed down!!! That would seem to be an alternative? Administrators in, run the company till a buyer is found, Govt or private. Wouldn't cut the price of gas bhut it is an alternative?

    If he did not stand again for 'Family Reasons', how can he suddenly perform the role of an MLC???
  8. It's all crap isn't it? Only the drop down news content has any relevance and that can be selective?
  9. I;ve no reason to know that Ashford willl be a puppet for Cannan in the treasury but it certainly seems that way! Still, we can always wait to find out as things unwind. At least our NI contributions are capped by following the English levels, Doh! Forgot about Sunak!!!!
  10. It's not a question of his past experience but rather that that experience should elevate him into the role a as Minister. It is a fresh House, it should be for that House to decide the progress for the future?
  11. That would be churlish, if the neighbours want o use the commercial bin to get rid of their rubbish, isn' that good for the ecology/ recycling???
  12. This may be interesting, with half a House of new enterants and some old favourites will Cannan favour the newbies and their modernising ways or stick to the old favourites??? Even Crookall, once rejected and now forgiven, do'es that make him a 'shoe in' ? or does he he need a term to prove hissself to the voters? I think we may find that he does not!!!
  13. ,,,,, but what about the the 'Attendance Fee' to empty 2 x 10 liter bags from a 700 ltr bin?, are the binmen supposed to decide to look in every bin before they empty it? Can they leave it another week? Suddenly bin emptying is not so 'Simples'? Max, a lot of the bin abuse is down to you, me, we, too much Amazon packaging, too much food waste overtopping the bin, untill 'We' tackle the waste that we produce, there is not much chance of the the Back Lanes being free of overspilling bins, dumped matresses and washing machines!!! I don't think that this is down to Douglas Corp??? It is society!
  14. Five years to go for his performance during Covid to be forgotten? Also, Cannan my want a second term?
  15. I think that Cannan will exercise much more control over the Departments than previous CMs, including the Treasury of which he has recent knowledge.? Maybe it is a level of overall control, by the CM., that should be good for a Govt program of policy direction? Just not Alfs!!!
  16. Talking of the Gov, if you look at his Uniform, he will obviously be in favour of a Felt Museum!!! Is it just a regalia for non-military types???
  17. Without an accent would appear to be 'posh' in some eyes!!!
  18. They did the best they could??? Lots of examples from around the World to follow?
  19. Stu Peters talks 'Posh'??? Ok Stu you are making all the right noises on listening to your electorate, just what we need! Are you going to act on those desires or are you going to make your own mind up and to hell with popular opinion? Who are you voting for next week?
  20. If HQ is ill again and stress related that would be shame as he within sight of finishing his term. Good luck to him.
  21. If you consider that Douglas is the distribution center for the whole Island then even if you don't visit Dlas you are still reliant on goods that have come though it. Amazon and Hermes? Where do they arrive on the Island!
  22. Roger, Philip and >Declan. Until there is a one person, one vote system, you will never know who was the voters 'favourite'. There can only be one favourite, anyone else is a second preference. So, you can analyse it in any form you want but you have no idea how the electorate wante the outcome to be because of the second vote. We may have a Keys of several 'second choice' MHKs by dint of this system while the favourites have lost!!! Or alternatively, there could be MHKs topping the pols thinking they are the Bees Knees when actually, they were only the second vote and most people wanted someone else!!! This could be where an eliminaton round could put the top runners to the final vote without the distraction of 6-7 candidates to distort the vote further? Either way, the 2 votes per person has to end.
  23. That could be an argument for an 'elimination ' round???
  24. You'll never get them Roger, unless, you can study the imprint of the 'cross' on the ballot paper! That would presume that people put an emphatic cross on their first choice and a somewhat less enthusiastic cross on their second choice? A bit of a hanging 'Chad' moment??? A large vote means nothing if we don't know how many were first and second preferences. I would rather a candidate were elected on a few hundred 'favourite' votes than a candidate on a mixture of first and second preferences even if this is an impressive number!
