    I have actually tried to upload the video several times on Facebook since the beginning of January. I did have a few issues loading the video directly onto Facebook because of the song, which is now accepted under the “fair use” rules and by acknowledging the artist. Unfortunately, a few of the slides are blurred when uploaded from iPad to YouTube..... and it was even worse loading directly onto Facebook. And it does take 40 or 50 minutes to upload, so I will try again in the morning before giving up on the idea....

    Mr Skelly And The TT...

    The TT generates over £39 million of economic value to Isle of Man, so it is very very important to our island....... there will always be risks associated with high speed events, but the Isle of Man continues to improve safety each year through training, medical cover, better protection barriers etc etc - but it will never be ZERO risk. Graih, Housing Matters, Benefits and the Foodbank are now high priorities of this administration... Tynwald set up a Select Committee recently to look at poverty on the Isle of Man, and it has already taken evidence and held a workshop with the third sector.

    Yes, I enclose a link a freedom of information request made in 2017.... 2018 would be about the same, if not slightly lower

    Mr Skelly And The TT...

    Thanks Declan The original post on IOM ONLINE was incorrect, but has now been corrected. It is worth noting that the £136,832 profit goes straight back into the event - therefore reducing the Manx taxpayers contribution

    I am sorry but that isn’t true.... follow the timeline, on each occasion I am defending myself and not attacking even in Tynwald on Tuesday my speech was on the strategy and the decision making process, and not directed at the Chairman http://www.tynwald.org.im/business/listen/AgainFiles/2809a1.mp3 my speech is about 35 minutes into the Tynwald debate

    Just from memory.... I am sure Eddie Teare told Tynwald a few years ago that the figure was around £78 per question

    Happy to clarify the reason for the question...... The P.O. Chairman made a recent statement in Tynwald stating that the IOM had the cheapest postage in Europe, which was incorrect.... My written question led to the P.O. issuing an apology this month to all Tynwald Members, because IOM does not have the cheapest postage in Europe....

    Anyone outside the Coucil of Ministers is a backbencher...... On my part - there is a element of loyalty towards DfE at the moment simply because decisions have already been discussed at length around a boardroom. However, those decisions DO NOT supersede Manifesto promises.

    PK - I am not tied into collective responsibility as a backbench MHK. That said, I fully understand why the Council of Ministers needs to have an element of collective responsibility. The only area which is slightly “grey” is in the Departments, but even that isn't collective responsibility but simply a political team discussing various issues and trying to find a right path to take, based on the evidence presented for consideration and any professional advice given. I can assure you that Department Meetings are not simply a “nodding shop”. As I mentioned previously, I have voted according to my Manifesto, other than the one voting mistake I made, but it didn't affect the overall vote. I would actually say that the Government has lost more votes in the last eighteen months than the entire administration between 2011 and 2016. So backbench MHKs and MLCs are voting with their conscience and not because any pressure being applied
