    Yes, they used to play the British national anthem just before the nightly shutdown. 

    And around 8 am when it came back on air.

    The Guardian article has been posted on IOMNP Facebook page, lots of comments from the usual suspects. Clare Christian muses - I wonder who supplied IOMG PPE? Well instead of making pointless questions, perhaps she could have investigated, used her brains and influence, maybe those nice people at the DHSC and ManxCare will give her the information she seeks. She’s an MHK!  Maybe Clare Christian has the hump that she expects Michelle Mone to shop local and come into her shop and spend, spend and spend? 

    Didn’t Clare’s husband diversify into PPE provisions? Maybe sour grapes?

    If the tweets are genuine then they've succeeded. 

    Hopefully now rebuilding her twitter followers she will limit to her professional community.

    Twitter seems to be a venting route for her and I am sure it isn’t doing any good for her mental health (or others).

    I hope this is a new dawn for her.

    I'm keeping an open mind. But on balance I think the hacker version is the least unlikely version. I just think it takes quite mental leap to think that a scientist and businessperson would jeapodise their business and reputation by releasing personal medical information (provided by what means?) to score a debating point on Twitter. I do think that their are malacious sadsacks on Twitter that would find a compromised password and get up to mischief to discredit her. 



    There is most likely a word/term to describe where something is exaggeraged so much it becomes highly unlikely.

    That is what is happening now. Of course Rachel does not have access (or has been sent) confidential medical information. 

    Nor did the tweet say that.

    It said, which has been posted so many times, that she has an Inbox full of message saying who has been admitted for what”.

    This changes perspective.

    As said elsewhere by Rogermexico, this could simply be the Manx gossip mill at work, with various people gossiping ”do you know X is in hospital for Y”.

    The whole thing is a nonsense but she has brainwashed so many people it’s amazing how well her followers so readily buy into conspiracies after being fed conspiracies by her for 2 years. Her claims are false. She cannot possibly have been hacked. And she doesn’t even have the self awareness or integrity to apologize to the man’s family. 

    Agree. Those who seen it play out in front of their eyes know the hacker conspiracy is a nonsense. The devil is in the detail 👿 

    I was surprised though at the amount of backlash she has had on Twitter over this. But she won’t (conveniently) see those tweets.

    And besides the distasteful tweets on the AG and call for a Covid memorial  there were also accusation that the CoMin had blood on their hands by not implementing a mandatory masks policy ”every Covid death was preventable” 🤷‍♂️

    Because it appeared on her twitter account.  Something like "someone bas hacked my account and posted inappropriate tweets.  Please be assured it wasn't me and I apologise for/regret any distress caused to the family." 

    It is what you would expect someone professional or with a high profile to do, not least because it distances them from the offensive content. 

    And to say to her (previous) followers who the hacker blocked after liking tweets confronting her posts that they were welcome to reconnect 🤪

    yes, and the fact that someone made a second account gets criticised by the usual MF users of all people.

    I don’t recall reading anyone here criticising her for starting a second account. it seems the logical thing to do.

    I think it was (i) the timing of the first posts and (ii) the initial (now deleted) contents that raised eyebrows .

    The only thing that really bothers me about all this is the admission that she gets info about the Covid status of hospital admissions. I’d be horrified if my health status and data was being breached by some sympathetic mole at Nobles. Cultists will sometimes do anything for their cult leaders.

    I’ve been thinking about that. Initial thought was that someone is regularly emailing her patients personal details.

    On the otherhand, it could be her twitter inbox and one of her friends saying ”another new one in Nobles” or ”one death today, but not reflected in numbers as someone else has came in”. 

    The latter is more gossip whereas the former would be a gross breach of confidentiality.

    On this, I’m tending to think the latter. I don’t think she would be so stupid. 

    (Assuming it wasn’t a stupid, drunken rant and she has no info).

      But she hasn't denied it either.  

    Very true.

    Appears from earlier posts Rachel has a new Twitter account and to rebuild all her professional connections must be a PITA.

    On the other hand, all the ”other” followers (IoM followers for covid and politics) are simply and conveniently lost.

    But didn't deny she had posted the inappropriate  tweets.  To be fair Rox has a point.  

    If she was going to admit (and apologise) for writing those tweets (JM passing, CoMin guilty for not mandating masks, and memorial for covid deaths) it would have been this morning.

    ‘I’m done with the isle of man’ was in response to the backlash she got from her followers after she tried to lighten the nature of her tweets. 

    Ok, I got blocked quite early on in proceedings last night.

    Not all of us are in her covern! I got under the wire when I saw it all imploding last night. Her first tweet on her new account at around 11pm (which has now been deleted!) and read “Congratulations you found my new account!”. Someone who has been hacked does not prioritise a new account, while the hack is ongoing…and if they did, why wait until this morning to say so! Her true colours have now been shown! 

    And the second (also disappeared, though there is a screenshot on here many pages back) said words to the effect of ”I’m done with the Isle of Man”.

    As it unfolds, it all becomes terribly sad.  There are no winners here -

    The AG's family have had their bereavement belittled and ignored.  And now at the heart of a social media shitstorm.  You would just hope that in their grief and shock they are not witnessing this nonsense. 

    RG has damaged her reputation, possibly beyond repair, first by the tweet, then not retracting it when it was pointed out to be inappropriate and not even now after she claims a hacked account.  Whether it was hacked or not, an apology would be in order.  None forthcoming.  If the hacking was a futile attempt to cover her misjudged (putting it politely) tweet, then that raises even more issues.

    Just sad all round. 


    I think her reputation has gradually eroded over the last 6 months with some very unprofessional tweets.

    Pick on the facts, don’t criticise others’ education. or partners.

    You are correct of course. But I does seem an increasingly incredulous story. 

    But yes it is possibly true and perhaps we should all backoff until such time as we know it not true. 

    Will we ever know it is not true though?

    it could be IOMG that have hacked her to blacken her name ??    worse than china and russia this place.  😂

    I’m sure in that case there would be delays and a half done job 🤪🤷‍♂️

    I believe Dr Glover genuinely thought that her expertise and skills would make a substantial contribution to the Island in the perilous early days of Covid. Instead, from what we understand that went on, her contributions were rejected i.e., did not sufficiently conform to ‘their’ policy/dogma, and then she was hounded and abused. Her reputation (and possibly livelihood too) was undermined by powerful people. It seems that natural justice failed her - as was evident at the PAC hearing. Unsurprisingly, she is probably still upset by the events of the past two years (she is only human after all), and she does appear to have ‘lost her rag’ by speaking out so boldly on Twitter. Clearly, her Twitter outburst was inappropriate and this is very sad for all concerned. Everything else is ‘hearsay’.

    However, everybody makes mistakes; especially those who live in glass houses. So, throwing stones is not the best way of defusing an antagonistic situation. At some point Dr Glover may even post here again, telling her side of the story. Until then, my view is that perhaps it is time to ‘’donnez lui une break’’.

    It wouldn’t do Taxa any harm in bringing in a social media code of conduct. 

    I think Rachel would have came out of this with her reputation intact if she had kept her twitters to her science and hobbies and kept politics out of it.

    There are two sides to every story and I feel that we have only heard one for the last 12 months.

    She just needs to promise a point by point rebuttal, then leave it 3 months, then say she has done one.

    Rightly or wrongly DA did say after the PAC that he wouldn’t now be issuing a rebuttal - it had all been answered in his interview

    Seems she is pulling the old I was hacked defence on her previous twitter account.

    Des anybody actually believe that bullshit.

    No. Absolute bull shit.

    She would have my respect if she said that she’d had a few too many tipples, was thinking things through too much, and her anger took over.

    How does a hacker know that her father was a military man and both grandfathers were at the Somme (reference to her asking for a covid memorial).

    Seems her new account was hacked as well since those early tweets on being ”done” with the IoM are gone 🤪

    Not convinced. I follow her and it’s totally dead linked. It doesn’t even come up on a Twitter search. 

    Yes, the screenshot Roger showed isn’t for private accounts. Then I think it says ”these tweets are protected” (or words to that effect).
