I saw a photo from the MR thing - Gawne, Brown, PK, Josem, Scales - was that it or were there more? Any women? Or even life? Cos that's a pretty awful line up (no offence to Jayman)

I mean why is Josem even there? He's just a random guy off the street surely?

Well one of them said something like " it's all very well criticising govt [for whatever] but you were there for 40 years and didn't change it".  It was a good duel,  I just didn't know who was who. 

It was Gawne, chiding Peter Karran. Peter Karran for all his years in House of Keys was only part of the Government (capital 'G', as in Council of Ministers) as Education MInister for a few months (good for highest salary pension btw) so was never really on the inside.

Not like Gawne though, who as a Minister and darling of the Tynwald big boys because they had managed to (easily) bring him on message, brought in lots of grant money for landowners and was heard berating the public for  criticizing the forthcoming Promenade scheme in a moment when the Tynwald microphones were left on during a recess (In the same broadcast incidentally, a gang of the Legislative Council led by the bIshop were heard taking the piss out of Peter Karran).

Budget Special on just now

Phil Gawne was asked about housing. Ironic or what?

Well it’s fair enough; he’s hot stuff on residential matters.

Absolutely, he’s now eff all to do with (comedy, useless right-wing political duffers) LibVan, so what’s his ticket to this (admittedly dire) line up. Josem is a pub bore a la Farage with more opinions than brain cells. But not quite yet with the same election failure record.

So Phil Gawne, Manx Radio presenter and commissioner's clerk or whatever, gets on the Manx Radio News for expressing his opinion about Isle of Man Government not putting money into repairing Laxey Wheel.

Who needs elected politicians to run things when you have squawking Gawne on the airwaves?

PG chose a budget debate programme to make a personal attack on PK. Another example of PG huffing and puffing to score a point like an oul Manx politician from days gone by.

Yep, and him a Manx Radio presenter too. The guy has an agenda/agendas. Get him off the airwaves.

An intelligent and more balanced person would easily be able to score points against Peter Karran, without making themself look like a twisted bitter squawking crow.

At least he wasn't speaking in that annoying singy-songy way he does on Sunday afternoons when he is educating us in 'the Manx'.
