Exactly.

He's drawing on a stereotype and making a parody of it. It's a fine line to balance though and it's only visitors who might - and its a big might - be upset if there is any suggestion of a piss-take, so they can't know. And he's got to keep 'Jonny' going right on,  the whole fortnight.

 

Absolutely.

I see Rodan's been moaning about not being able to enjoy the "ceremony and pageantry." He still got to dress up and think himself big so what's his problem? Not having much of an audience to parade himself to really took the wind out of his pompous sail.

Wonder how much the ceremony and pageantry costs under normal circumstances? 

That Rodan is possibly unhappy is a very good reason to keep the informal Tynwald Day that the pandemic has produced

No.

He was a teacher when I was at school. Other teachers were delighted when he got elected. Take what you want from that.

Some politicians - and some school teachers - are marmite characters

I had the pleasure of sitting at the same table with him in first year 1A at Balla.Teacher's pet. Make of that what you will...

After putting his full title on  HM Sole the King of Moraceae, Ian-James Clanton there wouldn't be any room let for the signatures.

From his failed £1Bn go-fund-me campaign....

M. The Sole King of Moraceae NOTES: Constructed for ocean dwelling, Moraceae's E.G.G (Ecological Geophysical Galleon) will be the most advanced habitation system on the planet, capable of circumnavigating Earth and conducting pioneering research into planetary science, particularly Climate Change, Space Habitation

It would be complete comedy if he got in - 

South Douglas Resident: Ian, my street is filled with dogshit. What are you going to do about it?

MHK  The Sole King of Moraceae (aka Ian) : I will create  an Ecological Geophysical Shit Collector, which will be the most advanced shit collector on the planet. Capable of circumnavigating the offending dog's ass before it even knows it needs a shit, so that the streets of Douglas (South) can be forever free of the climate changing pestilence that is dog shit. I will also conduct pioneering research into whether the shit can be used to sustain the growth of the hair in my 10ft effigy of Manannan (currently on display behind Harris fencing in St Johns) 

SDR: Sounds good. How much will it cost?

MHK TSKOMAKAI : £ 1 Billion. I'll raise it on go fund me, so it won't cost the taxpayer a thing.

Incidentally, there were MHKs clapped as they strode back to the church from the hill. 

Which is fair enough, it can't be denied this past few months have been tough.
