He'll now be reinvented in Manx legend as a sort of Robin Hood character. He operates outside the law, purely for the benefit of the common people.

"I've fucked up."

 

"It's okay, you just say you'll resign and I won't accept it."

 

"Ah right. Okay."

The current emergency Tynwald debate on this matter is very much worth listening to.

Cannan has just delivered a stonker of a speech on the unacceptable aspects of the matter and how it has far reaching consequences for Tynwald's future credibility.

It is on Manx Radio AM 1368.

...."move on"..."draw a line under it"...and...."lessons have been learnt" are now old hat.

 

"We are where we are" is the cliché of choice today.

 

All the phrases have the same depth of meaning though.

 

You would have thought that Shimbo, in his then role as DoLGE Minister, would have learnt lessons by now, for exampe after he admitted responsibility for selling the Ramsey Post Office to the then Chief Minister's brother-in-law.

 

Yep, it all gets a bit Animal Farm indeed.

Minister 'Thirsty' Watterson - no stranger himself to handing in his resignation and having it turned down by Allan Bell - is saying how Minister Shimmin knew that these 'loans' would be unpopular with Tynwald and unpopular with the public, but he had "the courage of his decision".

 

You call it courage Juan, I call it arrogance.

Him and his brother seem to have a track record for offering their resignation within Government and it being refused! MMmmmm

 

Then our Politicians wonder why the public don't have an awful lot of confidence in them.

 

Can anyone stop this sinking ship?
