  1. That's shocking but not surprising. I suspect it is a swabbing issue. Funnelling so many people through one point puts pressure on the swabbers to get through as many as possible.
  2. This also happened to a friend of mine. They had a positive LFD then PCR gave them a negative. They took two more LFDs both positive. 111 refused to give them a further PCR test. They told them it must have been a faulty batch of LFDs. A line I've heard a few times. This raises so many issues: a) if they know there's a faulty batch out there why haven't they recalled them. If there isn't why the hell are 111 advising them about a faulty batch. b) swabbing issues. The last time I took someone up for a PCR they barely put the swab up the nose. This happened with my friend as well. c) is there control issues in the lab? d) what about symptomatic people who don't take an LFD but go straight to testing as advised by the Govt. How many of them are being given incorrect results? Having read the thread on Twitter it seems this is happening to numerous people and not just a one off. Let's hope this isn't another one of those great Government cock ups again.
  3. Tell this to the press who for some reason think he has something to say so keep giving him a platform. Bit like the UK press do the same for Nigel Farage.
  4. You use far too many words to say absolutely nothing. Most not-for-profit organisations on the Island aren't set up for the sole purpose of lobbying the Government. Most of them actually contribute to the betterment of Island life (or try to).
  5. I don't often swear but Jesus fucking Christ it was actively removed because they were no longer Members of Tynwald and... you'll like this... it would potentially fall foul of GDPR as we (the actual Manx Taxpayers) were no longer entitled to that information. It wasn't a conspiracy. Stop deflecting.
  6. Man calling for transparency fails to be transparent. Can you not see how dodgy this appears? What exactly are you trying to do Michael? What is the end game here?
  7. Literally everyone is wearing a mask in shops in Douglas. I saw one very sheepish looking bloke walking through M&S without one. But he was the only one. Admittedly some of the older ones haven't quite worked out that masks go over the nose as well as the mouth they did at least have one on.
  8. Neither Speaker or Glover are in CoMin so Cannan has no control over them and nor should he. They didn't fear Quayle, they were coming up to an election and feared the electorate.
  9. That's because it's a different story in the food section where most people were shopping and 90% of those people were masked up. But that doesn't fit the narrative he's pushing.
  10. M&S about 90% of people wearing them. Same in superdrug and boots.
  11. You have it the right way round, however, the last two people I know who received positive LFD's both had a negative PCR. Both tested positive on multiple LFD's both before and after their PCR test.
  12. Ewart said it was. Something along the lines of they'll just need to put another jumper on.
  13. Likely to be cancelled is different from actually cancelled...
  14. It'll be a lot longer away if they don't start putting some in place now.
