  1. Shocking revelation at #iompac at this afternoon that @juanwatterson cannot provide assurance that the almost £5m Tynwald expenditure is value for money! With acknowledgements to a tweet by Brigadier Spuan W.
  2. Incoming Treasury Minister Chris Thomas has made an extensive post on his Facebook page regarding the scope of the 'Lisvane Review' Lord Lisvane has been asked to: • examine the functions of the branches of Tynwald • assess their efficacy • consider the scrutiny structure required by the parliament • recommend any options for reform https://www.facebook.com/ChrisThomasIOM/photos/a.408460149261404.1073741838.201555126618575/971787096262037/?type=3&theater Do MFers have any recommendations on options for reform, ideally ones that don't involve the immediate hanging of most MLCs?
  3. Bill Malarkey MHK has just brought a motion to Tynwald to have a referendum in connection with the election of the Legislative Council. There has been some varying input, but mostly, at every opportunity from Geoff Corkish MLC, who is frightened that there might be the slightest possibility of his removal from the gravy train/massive ego trip. The most interesting input I found was from that of Speaker of the House of Keys Steve Rodan. He said he has been in this place long enough to know a political gimmick when he sees one. Of course, Rodan should know, he brought in the biggest political gimmick ever, in votes for 16 year olds. How many 16 year olds were banging on the Tynwald door asking for a vote? Well I'll hazard a pretty accurate guess at none. zero. But Rodan goes down in the annuls of Manx Political history. Still, it is interesting to hear the snears,jeers and fears from Geoff Corkish MLC, who in this short debate, has expelled more hot air and throat clearing phlegm, than he did in the years he was a taciturn Member of the House of Keys.
  4. People's champion Chris Thomas to launch 'Year of Democracy 2016' project in Tynwald today with his call for a constitutional reform commission & referendum on legislative reform http://www.manx.net/tv/mt-tv/watch/72529/call-for-a-referendum
  5. Phil Gawne ,Peter Karran and Chris Thomas will be presenting their views and proposals on parliamentary reform at the Legion hall in Douglas at 7.45pm on Monday 31st March. Members of the public are invited to attend and add to the debate. From Manx Radio News:Reform on the agenda at Positive Action Group Published online at 31/03/2014 12:21:54 The Positive Action Group will discuss parliamentary reform tonight as it holds its Annual General Meeting. The organisation will gather at the Manx Legion on Market Street in Douglas from 7pm, with the public part of the meeting starting at 7.45pm MHKs Phil Gawne, Peter Karran and Chris Thomas will share their ideas about parliamentary reform in the Isle of Man. They’ll range from abolishing Legislative Council, or popularly electing the body, to holding a public Referendum on reform. Admission to the event is free.
  6. So Buster Lewin is to give evidence to the select committee on the Dandara - Kirk Michael fiasco. It will be interesting to see if during his discourse we get a full insight into his and Dandara's alleged manipulation and corruption of Government employees and representatives. During the trial that resulted in his imprisonment he alleged that he had historically manipulated votes for our current Minister for Education among others. This was not thoroughly investigated or questioned during the trial or after, (strange with such a serious allegation), and a simple 'no he never' from Mr Crookall was apparently enough to quash any further questions. It is amazing that neither our overdressed police, nor those fine upstanding members of our local gutter press saw fit to pursue the matter to a greater degree. Lewin should be granted immunity from further prosecution if he can evidence his claims. I am sorry to say though we will probably have yet another whitewash and all will be swept under the carpet to rest securely with freedom of information.
  7. Listening to the debate about woman bishops today got me wondering about our own Bish, and in particular his membership of LegCo. Does anyone know whether he is a paid member of LegCo, does he get attendance allowances, or a salary, is the role pensionable.
  8. Minister for Economic Development John Shimmin said the TT Marshals Association would continue to recieve free programmes http://www.manxradio.com/newsread.aspx?id=60535
  9. Just arrived home and find a bcc e-mail that apparently was also sent to StuPeters (and others?) earlier - I don't know if he used it but let me share it with you in case you didn't hear it as IMO it speaks loads:- "Warren Buffett is variously called the "Wizard of Omaha", "Oracle of Omaha",or the "Sage of Omaha" and is noted for his adherence to the value investing philosophy Eddie Teare has taken it upon himself to do investment due diligence and decide where our money should be best invested without taking any professional investment advice. According to the Public Register of Members Interests dated 19 Oct 2012 Mr Teare only owns shares in RBS, Shell, Barclays Bank, HSBC, Aviva and Astra Zeneca – So, NO AiM or speculative shares for him…that says a lot. Should we be calling Eddie the Wizzard of Andreas, or Sage of Balnahowe??"
