Recommended Posts

He's one mhk who seems to be taking the mental health of the islands residents serious and is trying to do something about it.

There’ll need to be a consultancy firm involved plus a few surgeries in Onchan followed by weeks on his blog on how it should have been him

He is a good chap, needs to be heard a bit more as he does a lot of work that nobody hears about.

Looking forward to it. 

I do wonder why someone's good works should be questioned because he's a member of what is essentially a social club?

Like what? Genuine question, not saying he isn't.

I suppose if you want to play semantics and pretend associations exist without context or internal structure, literally any group of people in history -- good or bad -- could be labelled a "social club".

I know he's involved with Quing, which is a Manx mental health charity.

Structure, you mean like the Scouts? The Freemasons have a structure but what evidence is there that there is anything other than charitable works and ceremonial content in their meetings?

Max - please be careful charitable work is often used as a defence for all the corruption, nepotism and wrong in organisations and those involved / signed up are often oblivious to the facts.

I meant doctrinal structure relative to hierarchical position. Also, I was referring to the associations and activities in a broader social and historical context. You can't assess Freemasonry as a self-contained organism existing in a vacuum.

Read the article

 

But in short he helped get a charity off the ground for people with mental health issues. Walked past one of their meetings the other day and he was in there talking to people from what I hear he is heavily involved not one of these who is happy with the association
