...And they're off...in the Peel and Glenfaba steeplechase

Recommended Posts

If we elect Pownall he will donate all his MHK salary to cancer diagnostics at Nobles.

 

This is quite a promise.

 

That sounds like tantamount to bribery.

That was an interesting pair of programmes on Manx Radio at lunchtime - one with the Glenfaba candidates head to head, and the other with the Peel candidates head to head.

 

The first with two reasonably intelligent gents, mostly agreeing with each other.

 

The other with four people who mostly seemed to be complete dimwits, and couldn't even agree with themselves.

Peel doing well in following the current Tynwald trend then!

One thing Peel has been good at in the past, is throwing a skutch of candidates at the poll so that the vote becomes dramatically split

Dunno if 4 this time around constitutes a scutch but my Peel-resident political commentator friends seem (a) largely disinterested in the whole shenanigans and (b) not at all clear about the likely winner.

I felt it was a very poor programme by the Peel Candidates yesterday.

 

Penny could be the surprise winner on Thursday night, but I will stick with Ray to win.

 

Harmer

Hanson

Hardmen

Pownall

He certainly expressed his views!

 

To me, it was more to do with the party she was representing, how she would have to follow their policies and how such policies were to benefit the party as a whole and might not be in the best interests of the people of Peel.

 

Being fair, its exactly how I feel about lib van and why I would not vote for their candidate, no matter who it was.

 

Any idea what the app thing is that you can watch the full meeting?
