Serious question and just to widen the MLC debate a bit, can someone briefly tell us all what the following previous MLC's achieved during their term/s in office?

You could make exactly the same point about nearly all of the MHKs. The IOM is hugely over-represented at tremendous cost. An equivalent population density in the UK would have 1 MP. 

There are about 5 MHKs who actually have any gravitas. And 1 MHK per govt department would be more than enough.

If their role is scrutiny then that sometimes involves rocking the boat.

Whoever thought they could control 5 women made a big mistake! I would have thought now sitting them down and telling them what they should do will make things even worse. The only controllable one se

Bearing in mind that in the capacity of Chief Minister the fat lad is thus part of Government and the MLCs were clearly "summoned" en bloc because of their Parliamentary status, this is outrageous. It

  • Geoff Corkish
  • David Anderson

  • Juan Turner
  • Tony Wild
  • Eddie Lowey

Oops sorry edited as had 2 Juan Turners! 

 

Primarily collectively achieved considerable entitlement to public funds via salaries, allowances and pension entitlements.

Any contentious proposals raised were heavily contested and binned (eg LegCo reform, Callister).

Coleman notable for V9 report which despite damning Skelly and resulting in DED being scrapped (to deny further responsibility) has produced nothing else.

Corkish made notable contributions to high-profile Ecclesiastical Committee. And Phlegm Dept. at Nobles.

Er, that's it. I think. Stump up, proles.

ETA. Eddie Lowey kept all those hard-pressed spirits up by being the chamber humourist by rarely knowing where they were at on the order paper and making contributions to debates that had either previously finished or hadn't yet happened. Known as "Doing an Eddie".

As you "recently moved to the Island to work for a local e-gaming company" how would you know that Corkish; Anderson: Coleman: Turner; Wild and Lowey achieved "Nothing"? The latter two in particular were not that all that recently Members. Are you perhaps psychic?

I feel CoMin would happily sideline LegCo

Does than make LegCo a bad thing?

Perhaps there should be an experiment, electing MLCs democratically on a national basis for a trial period of 5 or 6 years

At the same time denying any right to join government departments
