Would we be any worse off had amy been elected? At least there would have been a bit of entertainment, also she may have inadvertantly shone a bright light on things we'd otherwise be in the dark over. There's nothing to lose, I'm going to lobby hard for this crackpot, and any other that wants to run.

I might move to Onchan just to run there.

Judging by the comments this question seems to have backfired on Rob quite badly.

The problem is that his agenda is so brutally transparent that I think most people have his number now. It does seem that the guy never asks any questions but when he does they do seem to usually just be to embarrass Julie Edge in some way. Has anyone run a tally of his questions v subject matter? I think I might have a look as he asks so few questions it would be easy to work out how many have been in someway directed at the Post Office, the Post Office Chairman or the DOI on housing matters (ie: specifically at the areas Julie Edge is responsible for). The man really isn’t that clever at all.

 Also very "suspicious" how Rob's  No 1 fan in Onchan  just happens to hate her, and just "happens" to have banned her from his news group on FB for no reason. I still await Rob Callister condemning this unfair treatment of his colleague.

You’re right. He isn’t clever and he’s not behaving in a way I would consider fitting for his position. Here’s a suggestion Mr Callister. How about you sit down with Mrs Edge and work out a way where the pair of you work together for the good of Onchan and the Island. You are so transparent and this childish backbiting does nothing to support the people who you are supossed to represent. It’s an absolute embarrassment to witness. No doubt you have your mealy mouthed Onchan supporters egging you on but people are fickle Mr Callister. Behind your back they think you are a fool. Drop the drama, drop the ego and do the fucking job that you are paid to do.

I’d say that’s perhaps the main problem. Most of the people who support him on social media seem to be aggressive shit-stirring twats (Corrin et all), and if you listen exclusively to aggressive shit-stirring twats blowing smoke up your ass and pushing our false messages on Facebook you might not notice that 80% of everyone else in the village thinks you’re an embarraing plonker who seems to have real issues with your fellow Onchan MHK. 

As per my above suggestion - here are the rough results of my broad RC Tynwald question/subject tally so far 

The below records Rob Callister’s questions asked this sitting of Tynwald (so from Oct 2018). The results below are taken from his own website (which is a month out of date) so only go up to the 12th March. 

The results look pretty predictable.

This is a bit like coming up against Barcelona with Messi and Suarez; no matter how good you are, you will almost certainly lose, even though, but for them,  you’d win easily...this scenario is in reverse. With Cregeen & Moorhouse Malew/Castletown have an unassailable position; in any other House of Keys the Callister/Edge axis would win the most  comprehensively useless constituency pairing by a mile.
