  1. Like a lot of people on here, Mr Qualye is a sensitive sole, and doesn't take kindly to criticism. It appears to me, that the two MHK's with knowledge of Education have been totally ignored, to the Government and Departments cost. Like all Doctors, Alison has had to take a second opinion to find out what is wrong with this body, but by that time it has spread to what could be unmanageable damage.
  2. I really don't think that a Australian should comment about racial harmony.
  3. Not while the old boy's club lives on.
  4. I think your mixing up how the CS instruct the ministers on who would be best suited for a role in their Department. Knowledge is a dangerous thing.
  5. Least we forget the best question in Tynwald history, The price of a stamp. FFs it cost the taxpayer a £120 for Mr Callister to ask this question ( nearly 200 stamps) when he could has asked via an email or even better looked it up on the Isle of man post office site. He really wants to engage his brain before posting on his blog.

    TT 2021 ??

    Could anybody tell me, what the hell would someone in DFE motorsport be doing overtime for, But they paid £2,088.73 overtime from 15th March to 30th June 2020.
  7. If Mr Quirk is really serious about being an Onchan Commissioner again, then he could start with this https://www.onchan.org.im/uploads/housing-review-report-december-2019-saved-051219.pdf
  8. Better still, the next time I see him, I will ask him. But I won't hold my breath.
  9. I not sure who ran Airport and ports before, but for someone who is never off social media, you would think we might know why - 1) He thought he was just an Interim appointment at the DOI. 2) The Airport did not open, even though there was a plane in the skys,which had to be diverted to Liverpool, 3) What happened to the Ben -my -chree and how much it has cost, 4)Why 21 jobs at Airport are to go, 5) When the Liverpool sea terminal will be open 6) Why he was removed from DHA.
  10. The interim appointment of Rob Callister to DOI. https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/callister-to-doi-just-an-interim-appointment/ Question 2 states: Consequently no members have been formally appointed to Departments on an interim basis by the Council of Ministers during this or any previous administration. https://www.tynwald.org.im/business/hansard/20002020/t200915 Early Written Answers.pdf So just wtf is really going on, either they are just playing silly buggers or there is some more devious manipulation of the truth going on here. Since Rob Callister took over from Jason Moorhouse on Ports, it seems to have gone down hill some what.
  11. What has the Member who is charge of business at DfE said and been doing on the closure of these Banks, From the news nothing, you would have hope Mr Skelly and Mr Hooper would have made at least a little effort. Department of Enterprise should change its name to Department of Funding, as they do not communicate with small businessess at all.
  12. How old is Chris Robertshaw, He stated "Now is worse than WWII for Prom Businesses" https://www.manxradio.com/news/isle-of-man-news/now-is-worse-than-wwii-for-prom-businesses-robertshaw/
  13. Great, all the old farts on here want to go back to their childhoods and place more costs on the next generation. So not only will they be expected to pay for Government pensions deficits, but they will have to fund a post office banking scheme. Mainly for the older generation who won't do online Banking. If the Government could run a Bank as a non loss making business , I sure they already would . We own a ferry company,( that now needs two new boats, didn't say that when they were selling the idea). It looks like an investment in an airline business, and now to add futher costs, a bank, All which under the Government will be more burden on the next generation. I hope that the next generation don't bring senicide.
  14. Most kids I knew had building society accounts, basically because you got a better return on your £4.50 savings. Do the Co-op still do there banking services, as there is a co-op in most towns on Island.
  15. It would be nice to see the Government members, who were in finance voice their opinions like Mr Shimmins, Mr Hooper and Mr Callister.
