  1. Challenge to all forumites. Can we all please try to find something that Sleepyjoe can agree with?
  2. To be fair JWS is just raking the piss for the comedy value. It’s a Calamity!!!!😷😷😷
  3. Kate Lord Brennan seems to have come out of hibernation with a Moorehouse-esque long list of questions for Tynwald next week, most out of character for her. I wonder why that may be?😂😂😂 Hopefully the voters of Peel and Glenfaba will see through this fakery and judge her on what she has been doing to support her community over the last few years and not be fooled by her cynical attempt to raise her profile by piling in a load of questions to put some spotlight on herself a few months before an election. I have been googling and FB’ing to see how active she has been within her community and constituency over the last few years and so far she seems to be pretty much anonymous. Plenty of good work supporting the Community from the likes of Ian Davison and John Shakespeare but sweet FA from KLB it seems. Voters should vote based on what someone has already been doing not for what they say they will do. Actions speak louder than words.
  4. Interesting how different people can interpret things differently. She comes across as immature and petulant to me. She complains a lot without offering too much by way of actual constructive solutions. She doesn’t seem to have very much to contribute to Tynwald or Keys debates outwith her own personal area of knowledge which is very narrowly centred around health due to her nursing background. Hansard doesn’t lie. Also Douglas East needs some very specific support due to the large amount of flats, hospitality, tourism and business. I have seen little evidence that CB is tuned in to these specific needs and the constituency is in a shambles and needs some strong leadership. I don’t think she deserves to get back in let alone a ministerial role. She’s a political lightweight.
  5. Nope. It’s still there. Its on the Isle of Man News and Politics Page repost rather than on Josem’s personal page.
  6. Jeez. I only came onto this thread as my first outing on Manx Forums because of the title in order to learn about Local Authority Elections this Spring and I’ve ended up down a rabbit hole of politicians hiding behind fake names, racism, hate speech, homophobia and scandalous rumours about locals. I’ve been accused of eating wallabies and mistreating blacks And now I’m a “Tosser” as well. Fuck Me It’s like Fucking House of Cards! I’m wondering if I’ll ever escape with my life!
  7. Just because I have only been on the island for a year doesn’t mean I don’t have a circle of friends who tell me things. Someone messaged me to tell me to be careful who I was interacting with and in the message named you specifically. I’ve checked the rules and I see I am not allowed to publicly name you, though. Just because I’m not an expert in Manx politics “yet” doesn’t mean I’m a total idiot.
  8. You are totally missing the point. Awareness needs to be raised. You don’t go as far as you have mentioned. but awareness does need to be raised in order to eradicate racism from our society. The moderators need to have a look at this entire thread as it’s got hate speech, racism, and defamation littered throughout it.
  9. I would have thought that you as a currently standing Ramsey Commissioner yourself would be a little less likely than others to join in and engage in this type of unsubstantiated salacious gossip mongering.
  10. To be honest. There is nowhere near enough airtime given to the need for greater focus on promoting diversity and inclusivity within society. Dare I say it but the Isle of Man is one of the most backwards countries I have ever set foot in in terms of the racist and non inclusive attitudes I have witnessed since I have lived here.
  11. To be fair I don’t believe I have ever knowingly mistreated any black people and certainly not on the basis of their skin colour. I will concede, however, that white Australian settlers did not treat the indigenous Aussies well at all and the injustice of that remains still to be righted and perhaps never can be.
  12. Is it not the case that sometimes people are just more jingoistic rather than racist, though?
  13. I sure am Cobber. Australian and proud but family originally from the Isle of Man hence why I moved here. How did you guess? That Josem guy is not the only Aussie round these here parts. I’ve only been here a year and trying to get my head around the baffling Manx political system is hurting my brain.
  14. Is there any particular reason why the Local Authority Elections have such a terrible turnout? Any reason why they attract so few new candidates? It seems to me that they could be a fantastic introduction to politics for aspiring national politicians.
