E- gaming ( your comment ) not to my liking, but there you are. As to other Diversity, according to Government ; Industry / manufacturing, Tourism ( ie Culture / History/ Walking) .there are bound to be others. My argument against the FS has always been the ' All our eggs in one basket ) scenario.
So you are advocating diversity into eGaming? It's already now our biggest sector so the IOM has done that.
Aside of that you have not given me any examples of how the island can diversify. You mention Industry and Manufacturing - give me examples of how we can create that sort of industry? Especially given that the UK couldn't stop the Far East taking it all.
Tourism - give me examples. How are we, as an economy, going to create wealth and employment from additional tourism? Where is it coming from?
I would say we are doing about as well as Tourism as we can.
My message was. e- gaming ( as you have suggested ), and I did say not to my favor . Do read things properly. You talk utter tripe at times , I suggested the other options as options for our Government and Island to encourage, not something I could achive on my own. I thought Governments were there for that purpose. You on the other hand must have ideas, and plainly think you can achieve anything. Why not a try at MHK, TO TOUGH, NOT ENOUGH MONEY, TO MANY CHANCES TO BE PROVED WRONG.
Really, what are you going on about?
I am not asking for you to diversify the IOM economy. YOU are the one saying "we need to diversify away from finance related sectors". Great, give us all some examples of how you see this happening?
The answer is not "Government" or "Government need to encourage Tourism". The answer is for you to come up with an economic driver (like eGaming has been) that will create real employment (with meaningful tax and NI takes), grow the economy and add to the diversity we seek.
You mentioned Manufacturing/Industry - great, tell us how that is going to happen. The IOM Government gives them a start - 0% Tax. Explain to me how you would increase Manufacturing/Industry on the Isle of Man.
The government have sought to diversify things. Whether that be eGaming, Film Industry, Development Fund etc. You can hardly say the IOM doesn't seek to encourage business here.
But you seem to have all the answers, so let's here them. I want your expertise on how we are going to do what you think should happen.
looks like its PUT UP OR FUCKING SHUT UP.
