  1. “The Isle of Man where you can” I don’t know about anyone else but it keeps reminding me of the 1990s car advert. “You Can with a Nissan”? But back then you also had the “Bank that likes to say yes” and British Airways were “The world’s favourite airline”. And does anyone remember the privatisation of British Gas? “If you see Sid, tell him”... I’ll shut up now in case this is giving anyone ideas that I’m not being paid for.
  2. Keep it, it would make a nice place for 1 Millionaire to exist in. :/
  3. Have you ever tried getting in and out of the Kirk Michael Bank if you have mobility problems? Yep, ideal medical centre.

  5. Having just returned home from tonight's requisition meeting in Kirk Michael I thought I would just like to take this opportunity before the big day to say thank you to everyone who contributes here on Manxforums. It has been a remarkable experience running for the House of Keys and no matter what the outcome I have no regrets because if nothing else at least I can say that I've tried. Good luck to all the candidates around the Island for tomorrow and let's hope for a good turn out.
  6. Sorry I was unable to make it today. Both me and my wife Lynne have been suffering from vomiting sickness over the last couple of days, apparently it's going around again. But with a little luck I'll be back on form in time for tomorrow's requisition meeting in Jurby and I'll hope to see you there?
  7. You ARE my wife and I claim my £5.00
  8. Well I don't know, I would have thought putting friendship before political ambition is an admirable quality & I respect his his decision and his honesty. I think this kind of selflessness is an important trait in our politicians & is certainly no reason not to vote for him. That said I don't think he's the right man for the job, for a number of reasons but mainly that he is standing against one of, if not the strongest candidate I have heard so far in any constituency, ie Paul Heavey. He is the only candidate I have heard with any sensible solution to the (so called) bloated public sector, appears to be fair minded & actually have an interest in helping people & the good of the island. IMHO he wiped the floor with Alfie Cannan in the constituency debate on a number of issues & if I lived in Michael he would definately get my vote. Well I do live in Michael and he certainly won't get my vote. Anyone who is naive enough to think that dumping a car for several days at Douglas Road Corner with his name stuck on it is enough to get me to vote for him has another think coming. I'm selling it in a couple of weeks from now. I take it you won't be interested?
  9. No, I'm not Alf Cannan in disguise and you can't have your £5. And I'm not Vanity!
  10. It clearly doesn’t matter one bit where you are from but it matters to me that we are honest about our background. If we can’t be honest about ourselves there is little hope of honesty thereon. It perhaps bothers me more about candidates who have not demonstrated a long-term commitment to the island or the constituency they stand for. For example, never having lived or worked in the constituency and not owning a property or permanent home on the island. I think it is important to many people that candidates should be fair to the electorate and not try to disguise where their roots or potentially where their loyalties lie. I do not doubt the word of candidates who promise their best intentions, but I’m sure many voters will have their suspicions and these won’t go away easily.
  11. Be fair, Paul would have had to travel all the way from Kirk Michael. Right, firstly this is not the only election issue on the minds of our constituents at the moment and I'm not about to let Eddie Teare or Heritage Homes dominate discussions or lessen other concerns of wider importance. Secondly, I am not about to draw my conclusions from a single visit to the commissioners office to skeet at the proposals. I now have the full planning application in front of me and have considered it carefully without distraction. I can confirm that I do have concerns about certain areas which require clarification from the developers and I will be discussing these with Heritage Homes shortly. I regret to disappoint some people living in the area but, given the information received so far, I am of the opinion this planning application is reasonable.
  12. Good job it’s not a game show then isn’t it? By the way, the phone lines will only open after we have seen all three contestants. Calls will be charged at 50p from a normal BT landline and mobiles may cost more. Please do not call now as your vote will not be counted and you may still be charged. I am glad to see a potential future politician reacting like a child. I'm out as well. Too bad. I'll miss you.
  13. Thank you Judy, I appreciate your concerns and do realise the point you are making. I do admit there is poor turn-out in terms of quality but who am I to criticise? We all remain at the mercy of the electorate whether as a prospective politician or a concerned individual.
