    Manx Radio

    It wasn’t a gaffe - I was given the information at a previous meeting so I used it. Someone at Manx Radio listened to the interview and felt it wasn’t correct, so they gave me an opportunity to correct it. I will be checking how Manx Radio actually funded the TT and FOM commentary since 1964 next week.

    I made a genuine mistake and I am grateful that Manx Radio gave me an opportunity to correct my error.... I was led to believe that the costs relating to the TT & FOM commentary formed part of the Governments subvention before Radio TT was set up several years ago, but no one at Manx Radio or in DfE can confirm this, so I corrected my statement.

    It isn’t my statement but the formal statement issued by the DOI this afternoon.....

    Planning Appeals

    2112 A question is being tabled to the DEFA Minister in the House of Keys on Tuesday 26th February. I certainly agree that the cost will push many people away from appealing against planning decisions

    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.

    Mr Skelly And The TT...

    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
