Are doggy daycare places shut? The last few days theres been a dog near me that's obviously locked in a flat on its own that hasn't shut up. Its doing my head in.

It IS essential, I wish the owner of this one would bloody use them. They've obviously had to make some change to their life due to the lockdown that's resulted in them leaving the dog at home cos this is a new thing and the dog shuts up around tea time. Its one of those high pitched yappy ones.  Grr.

 

There's a dog down our road been barking for over 10 years. There was a law introduced for this specific situation but it has been poorly thought out and is effectively useless (as has been found by neighbours).

It's easier to wait for the dog to die,  if me and the neighbours don't die first.

OK. For what it's worth I'm going to try and explain why genomics is important in a ssRNA virus epidemic. No doubt it will end up being recited badly at a briefing, but, well, whatever. You read it he

I think you'll find most so called anti-government rhetoric is focused on government-stupidity and government-selfishness. In recent times - under Brown, Bell and now Quayle - all too many govern

A few extra bags of sand and  a couple more buckets are on the way to Tynwald as I write, just in case they run out of places to bury their heads at the next sitting.

They can't on this, it's here and now and very public, with 100% of that public affected in one way or another and very concerned. It's time to be accountable. Very probably the entire population are scrutinising their every move because it may be life or death for some.

It's not another MEA or PS Pensions issue, for instance, where they can repackage it to be dumped on the taxpayer and/or kick it down the road for the next administration to deal with. Not another report that they can shelve out of embarrassment or "commercial confidentiality".

It's here and now and it's big. And I hope those who voted against testing have got some answers.

Perhaps we should ask Rob Callister to cover in his weekly blog? Hope Onchan and Garff members remember come election time

Rob Callister will lie low for sure , always does. Cant understand why anyone voted against it tbh . Playing politics when peoples lives are at stake is wrong. What price the injections against the cost of lock down. ? No brainer really

I doubt there's 100% scutiny given that fb poll recently. More than half of the respondent's were happy with the way the crisis was being dealt with and signalled their approval. They're likely to just hang on every word and action thinking that government knows what's best and content that they carry on doing it thus making them unlikely to complain when/if the whole thing goes tits-up. Apathy rules over here when it comes down to it, hence the historical lack of accountability.

If you believe that come election time anything will be different you're deluded.

This is exactly why we pay these people a very competitive salary and a gold plated pension. Not just for arranging to fix the pavement outside Mrs Clegg's house down the road or helping to award a contract to their old mate from school. 

Time to attempt to eke out as much as they can from the grey matter they have and take the bullets if they get their decisions wrong. None of them thought they were going into politics to deal with a situation as serious as this, so it's sink or swim time otherwise they will be back doing the day job this time next year.

They've been basking in riding the crest of a wave, unfortunately the wave has hit the rocks !!

Just wondering how they will get the names of people - will it be shared from the DHSC d'ya think or a separate database. 

From the DHSC I would've thought. How else? Any action taken against rule-breakers would be registered on the criminal database. There are plenty of stories from people who were never contacted or checked up on whilst they were isolated. Probably down to under-staffing or some other convenient excuse. A dedicated team for this has been a requirement since the off, here we have another example of shutting the gate after the horse has bolted. Essential workers too, their movements need to be monitored also given that we've had contraventions within that group.

I'm not saying there hasn't been a problem but asking whether this is the answer.

The hotel isolation thing was a right, but just very poorly executed. Much easier to manage if all the eggs are in the same basket. Maybe now it is time to do it properly?.

Not before time, I suppose...

Had to come but I'm all for it. 

 

We're getting more and more like the UK every day, sadly. Looks like something some jumped up police force across would come up with.

This minute biological entity is spawning all kinds of spin offs, there will no end to dipping in the taxpayer funded trough . No idea why a police unit has to be labelled a 'Covid Response Unit'. How about just a response unit that deals with people who break conditions/laws or do we not already have one of those?

It's mainly patient transfers & key workers Coming in so don't think it's suitable to quarantine them in a hotel!
