Cut and pasted from the article on MR. I was hoping somebody on here would know.

It basically means that the new guy won't get first dibs on a cut price new Mercedes. 

As Capt Mainwaring would say.... "Well done Wilson. I wondered who'd be the first to spot that"... :lol:

Is this a way of firing someone without saying ''you are firing someone''?

Probably the problem with IOMG is that they pension them off and then they seem to come back on even more money to do exactly the same job. The new incumbent is on a temporary contract is he not?

No...it's the usual way, if applicable in this instance, of absolving somebody of responsibility for their actions and/or failures.

Without admitting to the failure of oversight that in itself allowed those actions and failures to take place in the first instance. Win win. Except for the taxpayers. It has become standard practice in IoM Govt at all levels, including LA.

Not sure. There’s rumours that he is in line for a “special project” role at the SPC once he’s taken his huge sack of gold pension lump sum.

So he has a Master's ticket as well as a PSV licence?

Maybe they'll present him with a green diesel locomotive as a leaving present.
