muslim nominated for MLC...

Recommended Posts

No this will never happen Neil they may do the job of scrutinising too well and have more experience than the MHKs, which would not be hard, they have been around and know too much.    That would never do would it.   The idea is to fill the places with pliable people who will nod things through and not ask questions that is why the women got appointed wholesale last year despite having little experience of not a lot, that did not turn out well.:whistling:

Leicester is a hugely multicultural city.

Oh c'mon Ducky. I expected China  to take my statement literally,but not you.

I've been through Leicester many times over the last 30 years and even back then it was becoming a one sided multicultural place

Forgive me. I'm always mindful of where I live. I met a woman in Port Erin about 10 years ago who'd never been to KirkMichael... (cue barrage of KM jokes)

To be fair, I think I've only been to Kirk Michael to play footy.

When I was a child my mother knew an elderly lady (I think her surname was Dawson) who lived in Hatfield Grove, Douglas. It was said that the furthest she’d ever been from Douglas was Glen Vine, to attend a funeral. Can’t vouch for the reliability of this.

Came into the thread expecting the usual dose of casual ignorance and xenophobia.

Imagine my surprise when I was not surprised.

Bait thread.

Probably why most people who don't live there go there. I'm guessing she didn't make the team

I think they should be got rid of altogether.

The upper house is a gilded cage for failed MHK's with a penchant for trousering lots of taxpayers money for doing little of value and bored folks who fancy hobby politics without the drag of canvassing and getting elected....

This - or make it publicly elected.

Either would be better than the current House of Keys appointment nonsense.

There should be a trial of directing electing MLCs on a national basis

The public are paying & they should get to choose

Good question - it lends weight to the story if it was.
