  1. The quality is mixed. It’s this whole “standing to hold Govt to account” thing that really gets me. FFS if you are standing it should be because you feel that you can play a part in the day to day running of the Island. We only have 24 from whom to form a CoMin. Also as we hAve seen this week some of those that were going to hold Govt to account have been pretty silent.
  2. I had some indirect involvement in a couple of senior DHSC appointments. In the process of which some observations I made were either not considered resulting in additional costs or said appointees leaving shortly afterwards in bizzare circs. I doubt much will change going forward
  3. I think Ashford’s position is untenable. He should resign from Govt.
  4. What’s the difference after tax?
  5. The very definition of the gig economy. Lots of people feel sorry for people onZHC’s because of the lack of security/shit money but many people want to work flexibly
  6. Fair play if they have. It’s been about a 20 year long game they’ve played! I suspect their price is their price. They aren’t worried about RB
  7. Fair play. We only got one because the bread was so dire on the Island
  8. Do so. One word…Panasonic
  9. Buy the dough? The machine makes it.
  10. I owe Ramsey Bakery a great debt. I thought their read was so poor and overpriced I started baking my own.
  11. What about the museum in Peel?
  12. Actually it is a position that might be of interest to someone like Paul Morris. He is well known at the Manx Bar and headed up one of the biggest firms on the Island as well as being an acting Deemster Also having retired from practise some years ago he is less likely to be conflicted.
  13. All the more reason for making the next AG a woman then
  14. I think that is a huge chunk of cash to be throwing at this project at this time. If it costs £5m to tell Peggy’s story I’ll tell mine for £3m
  15. I think Walter is happy in his role as SG.
