A far better Callister to have represented Tynpotwald. Also tried to reform Lego but thwarted by the establishment.

An excellent local broadcaster and easily the best Mannin Line presenter - he had no problem, dealing with Dorothy from Peel, and 
Marge from Dougla

RIP

Yes. An excellent broadcaster at Manx Radio. They certainly don't have anyone like him now, and that's precisely what's wrong up there.

I wish he'd have stuck to radio though. He went into politics with some reforming zeal but the old boys club soon had him turned round.

I think that's a bit unfair.  He didn't join LegCo till he was 72 and mostly retired from broadcasting, and he was quite clear that he was only standing for one term and he was mainly doing it to try to get LegCo reform through.   He didn't succeed but there's a limit to what one person can do when everyone else just wants to keep things as they are,
