I thought the views of the island were very good and Peter Kelly and the lady from MNH came across very well, I think the time taken up with John the Dog and the cat woman could have been put to better use, but all in all alot better than some other portrayals of the island

not bad, Countrywise with Paul Heiney. Good photography and views, but irony of ironies the programme was sponsored by visitYorkshire.com!

 

and I suspect that when the show does Scotland, Ireland, Wales and all other parts of England it will also be sponsored by visitYorkshire.com.

Just to be a pedant, it's not true that a law doesn't take effect until it's read out on Tynwald Hill as stated, I think it's just got to be read out within 18 months of it taking effect.

 

It didn't have any of the Baggs family in it as well, which is always a plus.

It used to be that the law did not take effect ubntil read out on Tynwald Hill, that stopped in WW1 as emergency legislation needed passing and to come into effect urgently and at inconvenient times of the year. It then was within 12 months of royal assent being announced, but one got misssed, can't remember what or when, the law was changed so it is no longer necessary for validity

So our national day is pure theatre then?

 

Prog was ok, but too much time spent with catwoman. Could have shown a few more glens etc as it was made to look pretty bleak in parts.

 

Are we on Countryfile this week as well?

Presumably that was the law law that had to be read out on Tynwald hill within 12 months?

The presenting a petition thing is a load of old bollocks too. If you have a grievance go to your MHK, and also find a seconder. Get them to present a motion at any Tynwald to have a committee set up. To be effective make sure you have a majority of members on side to vote for the motion.

 

Saves all that prancing up and down in front of the cameras on Tynwald Day (which admittedly is often the point, to get publicity) when you should be with the rest of us in the pub.
