"Year of Democracy 2016" your having a laugh !!

They have just let an ideal opportunity to reform, by stopping the farce that is Leg Co elections.

If they cannot decide which of their buddies they want cancel the next round and operate with 2 members less thus saving at least a couple of million first and discuss other options after that.

This whole system of governance is endemically corrupt and is certainly the bastion of non-Democracy.

I said this months ago. If they won't even countenance the small gesture of reducing LegCo by those two members as a contribution to the required savings then there must be plenty of money, and nothing they say about belt tightening should be taken seriously. A total disgrace to press on with this farce while simultaneously raising charges and cutting services. If they won't accept just a little austerity in their cloistered world why should the rest of us?

This forthcoming General Election will change nothing, maybe some new faces and some shock evictions but it will make little difference.

 

The system will simply assimilate the changes in order for things to carry on as they were for the establishment and those who really pull the strings.

 

I sincerely believe now that any real change is going to have to come from outside and be imposed. Just how bad things have to become before that happens is open to question, unrest on the streets perhaps. Or Westminster becoming so hacked-off with the Tynwald/IoM's antics that they decide that enough is enough.

 

Maybe it's time to start writing to David Cameron for those pissed off enough to be so inclined...?

They will be legally obliged to fill the 8 seats and follow proceedure for holding more elections.

 

Change the law to effect a change. Till that happens pointless to bleat about it.

 

To those who wish to call off the election(s). Would you feel the same if there were two candidates promising to end Legco and short of votes?

They should stage a Democracy Games where someone from each village is put forward to stand as MHK and they have to go off into the wilds of the Curraghs and only 24 winners emerge. Only when we get to survival of the fittest will we see any change.

People's champion Chris Thomas

 

Listening to it I thought he was chairman of the Chief Minister's fan club.

Mr. Thomas is a prime example of one of those politicians who wants to be loved by all; inside and outside the tent.

One of them sniped at Mr thomas today because 'he likes to read.'

That's the level of intelligence he has to deal with.

Granted some of them doubtless associate reading with black magic. Don't forget, John Houghton can't read a pay slip.

I think someone from each village is already in the keys ..............
