Rob Callister

Recommended Posts

Is this an official photo? Are they all going to have these or is it a phone snap?

He perhaps looks a little too smug. He should have tried a few different poses and chosen for humility?

Still, nothing wrong with self promotion in politics!

Oh dear. A reflecting pate.

Schoolboy error :)

He looks like one of those "Big Face Small Head" pictures of Bruce Willis, except in Rob's case there is absolutely no Photoshop required.

From what I remember of Callister it really is a case of what you see is what you get. Therein lies the problem with him.

At least he isn't persecuting goats, seagulls or trying to import immigrants or asking 29 questions, at one sitting about the Steam Packet, does anyone know how much it costs to research these questions?   Peter Karran used to ask questions but they were usual pertinent to a situation, he used to choose his battles wisely, and the questions, obviously thought out and written by another person, were worth asking. But this constant barrage of questions about everything and anything from Beecroft is costing dearly in time and money and whe she starts bleating on most people switch off, then when she has an important issue it is...OMG ..here she goes again, unfortunately she has not the intelligence to realise this, Peter had.    To win a war you have to pick your battles.

Agree on Beacroft.

i think that they’re just wanting to show the public they’re ‘working’ while on holiday by firing in stupid questions to be answered. It’s just grandstanding - look at me I’m on holiday but I still tabled 5 questions for written answer.

Isle of Man. Pop. 85,000. A mere crown dependency. A legend in its own ego trip. Puffed up to fuckety fuck

Although he did effectively ask how much a stamp costs a couple of weeks ago...

It is exactly what it says on the IOM Post Office website which if you choose to use the Internet for one of its intended purposes Neil, which is asking semi intelligent or relevant questions for finding out facts, looking forward to you telling us how much your package will cost...........

You're surely not suggesting that the denizens of Tynpotwald are rushed off their feet and have absolutely no spare time etc etc etc....?

How do you know these questions don't come from her electorate?

I think she should keep probing until she hits a nerve....

Which is what he should have done. Mine wasn’t a question as such more couldn’t believe he asked. Try reading it that way.
