He'd have to quit his job to be allowed to stand.

Doesn’t that choice/requirement only arise if elected?

Oh I don't actually know. I asked someone who is mid to upper management a while back if they'd stand and they said they'd have to quit to do so.

People like Matty Ward, Bill Henderson or George Waft only resigned once elected.

Fair enough, I thought it sounded like a bit of a strange gamble. There are rules apparently in the Civil Service code but I don't know anything about that.

Maybe those three weren’t Civil Servants. And Matty ( post office ) was a long time ago. Bill and George were nurses, though George was management level.

I’m sure with all your common sense, you could stand in the House of Keys General Election next year - or if you qualify - why not Douglas South?

You could sit in Tynpotwald spout shite, Ride the HRH The Chief Ministers coattails, and come up with endless IOMG press releases, published by the Nations Propoganda Mouthpiece. 
 

Full House!

I'll stick to doing what I do thanks whilst not constantly aiming bitter swipes at everyone in government.

A mere formality in this case,  of course.
