I think you completely don't understand what the Chamber is about or does.

 

I notice you did not answer my question. I think I do. It's quite clear on their website if you want to look, and to be honest whether they are a minority or not is irrelevant. It's a political lobby group strongly pursuing a particular political direction - as stated on their website. The point is that if Manx Radio is supportive of that it is no longer politically neutral, and quite happy to be so it would seem.

In the current circumstances, really? I have not seen my mother, who is in a nursing home, for over 2 months, I get that and comply. I could not take my friend, who cannot drive, shopping  e

I am delighted to announce that I will be returning to Manx Radio’s Late Show on Wednesday 1st July. This follows a three week suspension after complaints were lodged against me for comments made

Information Notice.pdf Not sure if the PDF link will work, but this is the official word. To everyone on here who has supported me, thank you sincerely. To my many detractors, have a nice day.

I think you are looking into it far too deeply James.

The Chamber has a number of members from retail, law, insurance, engineering, telecoms, banking, IT, eGaming, travel to name a few.

All of those sectors and companies employ huge numbers of people.   And those sectors support  or are interlinked with everything else.   It isn't about minority interests of a few. Far from it really.

As for Manx Radio joining - it looks straight forward to me.  It's an opportunity for them to sell their services to a ready made audience and one bit of business covers the fee.

I don't really agree that the chamber is hugely agenda drive  aside of just really wanting what is best for the island.

You're absolutely right, James. It's obvious to everyone with more than two brain cells. I can understand why Notwell is having trouble figuring it out.

Well that'll be two of us then given your brain cell count.

They want what's best for the island in their view, which isn't necessarily what's best for the island.

That's a stupid question and misses my point completely. Have a little think about it.

It doesn't really miss your point.

If you think they have a bias or view about what is best for the island and you think it isn't the correct view then what is best for the island?

Virtually every sector of business is represented by the way (in relation to their 'view')

Surely the only reason the CoC exists is to promote what's best for it's members not for the good of great unwashed?

I should point out I have said nothing of whether I agree or disagree with their political objectives, the point was neutrality of a government funded broadcaster. 

They shouldn’t be a member of Chamber in my book. They aren’t a commercial operation for a start they get a massive grant from the taxpayer to stay afloat.

I'm not disputing who they are or what they do, but are you telling me that CoC policy is set by all people employed by those businesses, or by the people who control them? Are you seriously trying to imply that the CoC is politically neutral? 

 

I will restate that I am not commenting on their policies.

You have a point - but other companies are also in receipt of government money who are part of the Chamber

I think the point here is that it's a national broadcaster the majority of people would assume must be politically neutral.
