  1. Police are involved. Betting scam apparently.
  2. Maltby was utterly useless. Quine and Christian clearly deserve to get back in. Higgins - nice guy but has been part of th problems
  3. You miss the point. Who would actually stand to be an MHK with the intention to just spend 5 years doing nothing. Sorry but that’s very very synical. Love or hate who we have or who is standing, but they all do it because the my think they can make a difference in there. It’s not an easy route to MHK - why go through all that effort to then just sit on your fat ass? I’m sure there will be loads of ‘he did that, she did that’ with examples. But unless you’re in there you don’t know what goes in behind the scenes. Not everyone gets news time. Not everyone publishes every minute of their day on social media. sorry I just think that anyone who stands should be given a fair crack of the whip. And they can choose their own way of doing things. I really can say there is on candidate who is in it just for the money, and to have 5 years off.
  4. What motivation would they have to stand then? Honestly there’s easier ways to earn £65k
  5. Isn’t the legCo there to scrutinise? Surely change is better effected inside a department or even leading it, as opposed to shouting at the sidelines?
  6. It seems everyone in the world is incompetent except him.
  7. From what I can see from your various comments, there is no candidate that could stand that you would like or support. You just like being critical. It’s a bit boring.
  8. You’re kidding right? Christian has challenged COMIN and asked more probing questions than anyone else in the last year Imho. I agree Quine is good but he’s a bit of a comin want-to-be and supports the CM and ministers openly in keys and in his interviews. But I think the 2 of them make an awesome team
  9. Its cheap to body shame guys. You should all be above this.
  10. From my perspective Christian has done more for people and addressed some key national issues, particularly around mental health - but I concede that Quine has been an excellent constituency MHK as well.
  11. Or maybe because they are both actually quite good.
  12. Yep - MF is only happy if it’s moaning.
  13. Exactly. What if she can’t afford to pay her mortgage without her salary? I don’t have any issue with an MLC standing, so long as they don’t use Tynwald meetings to canvass and promote themselves inappropriately.
  14. Why would you ‘take it that…’? No requirement and the other MLC hasn’t.
  15. hopefully they will State there will be no lockdown but roll-out financial support measures for those required to isolate (both for symptoms and close contacts of positive cases as well as parents required to look after children required to isolate, and maybe even slip in that social distancing and mask wearing maybe required in some situations if we get to x community cases?
  16. … and still absolutely nothing from His Majesty. 😂
  17. I think it’s relatively beneficial but not ‘required’ for example, Quine grew up in Anagh Coar, played football for Pully a but now lives on Bray Hill (I think). I don’t see an issue with him representing the area he grew up in and understands.
  18. This is exactly what Claire Christian is advocating - I can’t understand why they won’t listen? It’s simple additional protection for the vulnerable while allowing borders to open.
  19. I don’t see how 2.is possible to enforce. It’s like America telling is our income tax rate. We are self governing and can set our own tax rate by law. The former is different. It’s a standard for companies that are pan- jurisdictional.
  20. Can we add 2 + 2 please. That will be the buzz-phrase for the next few months.
