    Disconnect between young voters and MHKS

    You'd end up with a guaranteed group of people that are independently wealthy You might have people with altruistic intentions or people who have a desire to further their own ends I think being an MHK needs to have a salary to attract candidates who can attract that salary elsewhere but want to be in politics - Ramsey has a couple of good examples I think

    Agree We have the capacity to get ahead of the curve as we have a smaller more nimble government but that clearly isn't happening I suspect a combination of reasons but satisfying an older generation who do actually vote and not wishing to "do the wrong thing" and take a risk mentality

    Old enough to work full time and pay taxes you should have the right to vote (even if you choose not to)

    I think it's a concern in the education that (much like RE) any politician going in will either conciously or sub conciously push their own viewpoint. Personally I'd like a raising of awareness of the infrastructure of governments than necessarily political opinion being brought out.

    That's true I'd say but I don't believe we should just be willing to sit back and accept that as fact and not try and change it

    Fairy Houses

    type IOM Fairy Houses into Google and see the variety of website running stories on it

    Agreed £26k spent on an advert in a paper wouldn't generate the same buzz or have people talking about the IOM

    Player Unknowns Battlegrounds (PUBG)

    If you're still enjoying PUBG this made me laugh more than it should
  10. For Mexico an example they used it; "In July 2017, the Mexican National Council for the Prevention of Discrimination (CONAPRED) officially declared that reorientation therapies for homosexuals (like those run by the Christian-based organization Exodus Latin America) are violent and discriminatory, making them unavailable to Christians who would choose to use them." I think that tells me all I need to know about that website and its results....
  11. how do they come up with that list? Mexico and India seem anomalous

    Alleged Threesome Turned Sour

    I'm no expert when it comes to sexual activity but isn't hair pulling and name calling a bit tame when it comes to a menage a trois?

    Paddy Ashdown...

    I think it's a bit OTT to write off a whole life because he had an affair
