It’s a bit unfair of him to say he’s turned a role down because as you say it means whoever now gets it is a known second choice. It just sounds like sour grapes to me to say that publicly.

That and him running to Manx Radio moaning suggests to me Cannan made the correct decision.

I’d like to think the Dr is there to largely sort out the cannabis licensing and get this industry off the ground like has happened in certain US states as it has the potential to makes us millions and it’s largely been a bit of a mess so far. He’s already said he supports medicinal cannabis and is happy for a public consultation on decriminalization. So he would actually be well qualified for the job. 

The decriminalization bit is going to bite him in the bum. I don't think the good doctor understands the Isle of Man too well. He is being seen more and more as a bit of a privileged lefty liberal and I don't see that sits well in the Isle of Man.

 he never really did anything of substance either but got his mush in the papers every week largely to do with populist things of no consequence either.

Well he did make the front page when he fell asleep in the pub one Boxing Day and the police were called because he get a bit grumbly when woken up.

No, I didn’t speak to Manx Radio…..

I guess they got the story from Manx Forums or Facebook. 
 

I was asked a simple question, which I was happy to answer 

So, in answering the question you spoke to/with them!

Maybe callister was 2nd choice and someone turned it down before hand but didn't make a big deal about it

Someone should start a GoFundMe page to buy dentures for the OFT. 

 

 

But seriously, why can't OFT be given some real powers?
