Oh he won't be doing that!  Those rural voters don't want to end up having to actually pay for any facilities that they use.

What facilities does Port St Mary have?

'My work includes identifying parasites found in the environment and studying their impact on public health.'  She is going to the source.  

Where will this religious madness end?  At this rate we'll end up with the Bishop on LegCo!

Frankly, several of those who were democratically elected shouldn’t either.

I imagine he's too busy building his new southern empire after the merger of Arbory and Rushen Commissioners.

Latest runners and riders for LegCo are here with links to their nomination papers/CVs now included.  Currently seven standing including the three retirees (Henderson, Crookall, Sharpe).

So Harmer and Shimmins both nominated fellow fanatical MAMIL Rob Mercer.

Haha, exactly!

It has got the town hall I suppose, they have gigs there sometimes and they're always BYOB, which is great. Off there next month come to think of it for that Radiohead tribute band.

A track record..... in "constructively challenging the best way of doing things".

Why does the best way of doing things need to be constructively challenged?

It's the half-arsed, incompetent, pig's ear, utter fuck up way of doing things that needs to be challenged.

No mention of that. So he'll be a shoo-in.

You only have to look at the shite he posts on twitter he’s a complete whopper. A mate of Harmer’s BTW from way back. Nice when you get to nominate your mates who have exactly the same interests as you have.

I think it's already been touched on but this way of electing LegCo breeds cronyism. It's just like the good old days prior to 1867 when two names got suggested to the Governor by the rest of the Keys which lead the 4th Duke of Athol to say  "they were no more Representatives of the people of Man, than of the people of Peru". The whole LegCo election system developed because it was a compromise between the Governor and the Keys. Well the Governor has been gone from LegCo for many a year and yet despite many attempts nothing has really changed because nothing ever really does in Tynwald.

This forum getting bad press today on the wireless for being part of the radical abuse this person says she has received.

Dont see why she felt the need to go running to the press. Did she not expect some negative comments ?

Just read through this thread and don’t see anything hurtful, just tongue in cheek stuff, isn’t it ?

I doubt she did expect negative comments like some of the above. Why should she? Same as the pure nasty shite posted in the Bill Malarkey thread. There’s a lot of absolute twats about especially on here..

Why should anyone expect negative comments? Why would it matter where someone is from or their religious background?

That's the thing though, is it tongue in cheek or a genuinely held view that someone is happy to share in an anonymous way on here. First post is where it pretty much starts with some casual racism. The kind of childish comment that people think isn't doing any harm, but actually makes this forum and the island look like something from the 1950s.

Strangely I haven’t seen anyone post something like “When they legalised men sleeping with young boys and taking them to Barcelona I knew it was only a matter of time before a muslim would be in Tynwald.” on Facebook in their own name. So you could be right!
