  1. I think we all have an axe to grind when people in public office are breaking the law. Those who supervise or in charge should be brought to account.
  2. Ultimately it is the head of the department who is responsible for the efficiency of the department and its processes. One would expect the CEO to be asked what is going on and why the department is defying the law.
  3. Complaints against the Police was scrutinised by a Tynwald Committee in 2006 and found not fit for purpose a requirement for Independent oversight was recommended. It was a Police Inspector from Manchester that asked for the enquiry. The recommendations were never implemented. Obviously Home Affairs are not happy about scrutiny into complaints or in the running of the Constabulary.
  4. It is quite staggering that the professional body set up to oversee the quality of policing of the 43 forces in the United Kingdom has not been invited to the Isle of Man for twenty years! That is a huge amount of time given forces usually have five year development plans that no oversight or review has been undertaken. Given the force does the majority of its own training then not to have any external evaluation seems quite incredible.
  5. Unfortunately it was as complaints were made to the police hence the investigation.
  6. The investigation by Lancashire Police has been completed and they inform us that no offence has been committed.
  7. How is the statement controversial?
  8. The Department of Enterprise are well known for making boast of this nature but hard evidence of this boast is something the Minister of that Department rarely produces. Didn't we have great interest in a number of banks opening in our well regulated jurisdiction?
  9. Absolutely. Only one point of view. Theirs.
  10. The investigation of complaints against the police by the public were deemed not fit for purpose following a petition of grievance by an ex police inspector from Manchester. None of the recommendations were ever implemented. I suspected internal complaints are, as you have exampled, not fit for purpose.
  11. According to the newspaper report on this neither of your party colleagues said you had not been denied the ability to ask questions and on principle thought that you should have stood for re election.
  12. Like declaring your standing for a Political Party then once your in, you leave.
  13. What was Chris Thomas’s protesting about in objecting to the Emergency Regulations in respects of planning?
  14. Have we had any news on this aircraft being the one held at Ronaldsway?
