Bloody MHK's bailing out before the next election, the only candidates being the most useless members. It makes me sick!

The undemocratic farce that is Leg-Co continues on unabated. Listening to this on Tynwald live makes even more of a case for the total abolishment of this so called Upper Chamber. Failed MHK's club

I'd rather employ an additional doctor, nurse or someone useful. This old boys club fiasco is an obscenity.

Fifth vote - 18 of 23 possible votes cast

Anderson 9

Braidwood 9

Moyle withdrawn

 

Sixth vote to proceed with nominations for Anderson & Braidwood

Seventh vote - Braidwood & Anderson agreed between them that only one name at a time be put before the House of Keys

Braidwood first
Then if he is not elected Anderson next

 

No other nominations at this stage

 

And the outcome - 12 votes for Braidwood

 

So just Anderson being nominated for vote number 8

Eighth vote - the worry of having to come back for another ballot during the summer break obviously proved too much for some

 

One nomination for Anderson, who is elected with 14 votes

 

So two more bye-elections for the House Of Keys to look forward too!!

Electing Crookall to MLC makes about as much sense as electing Herod onto the Board of the Bethlehem Playgroup Association. The mans an idiot and electing him just shows bad ther present lot are. God helps us.

Ridiculous! Our Government are a joke. This is an embarrassment to democracy. I'm so angry and frustrated by this. Two more bi-elections when MHKs shouldn't be allowed to jump ship like this. Where's the integrity? They were elected by the people to serve them for five years. This is so wrong.

They would in all probability ask for extra pay if they had to come back in the summer recess.

What a pathetic display of the Manx Political system this has all proven to be !!

The MLC package costs "over a full term" over a million quid a member for 32 hours work last year, its a truly insulting affront to all Manx residents who are struggling on a daily basis to make ends meet.

TRULY UNDEMOCRATIC !!!
