Thought you were big on the personal freedoms and ability for people to take their own risks?

Well I am and certainly not staying in my house on a lovely sunny day, what idiot thought that advice up?

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

Rachel has tried every which way to re-offer her services. This last tweet wasn't the first time she's reached out. Government has made it very clear they do not want her to be involved. I want h

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

Last September when I travelled off-Island, I was in Zurich for a few days. They got on with life and introduced measures in restaurants and bars to ensure safe distances from groups.

This is where IOM Gov simply fail to realise the damages their decisions cause to parts of the Island economy.

It would be perfectly practical and reasonable for HQ to announce that these venues can remain open for now subject to additional measures and table separations. Instead he faffed.

Stay home. Sounded clear to me.

He was very clear that you are legally required to do nothing and his advice was simply of a precautionary nature for people who are concerned. Certainly I have no intention to stay at home as legally I’m not required to by either government or the police. I’ll probably take sensible precautions whilst out and about like distancing and wearing the mask I’ve been wearing since Wednesday when entering shops or coffee shops. So really exactly nothing has changed.

Exactly he’s saying we’re not making pubs shut but we’d like them to !!! But if it’s not mandatory there’s no support payments

Yep totally Alf's input into discussions. And its pay weekend so all the pubs/resturants hoping for a windfall. Apparently brewery pubs all closing , which will probably save them money !

It’s an almost perfect solution really. All those who want lockdown and can afford to have a lockdown can have a lockdown, and the rest of us can just crack on just like we’ve been doing all week.

Pubs and restaurants in the uk spent thousands to make themselves safer/compliant and the first thing the government done was shut those places so it makes you ask what was the point?

I think Manx Radio the Nations Propaganda Mouthpiece is really taking the piss out of HRH The Chief Minister, Ashie and Henny Hen. The first record played after the end of the press conference- Genesis - Land of Confusion! Sums it up!

But in this instance, Dr Ewart said they were following their pathway for dealing with cases in the presser. It's absolute BS.

If they were, they wouldn't even be entertaining a lockdown (HQ said they hadn't ruled it out), they should be following the steps to reduce spread with minimal economic and public health impact.

That starts with social distancing and advised face coverings.

I don't get why they wouldn't have face coverings and social distancing as an immediate response. Howie wouldn't even recommend one and suggested it was down to personal choice.

It's far better to act proportionately to minimise risk, without getting us hunkered down, than to give wishy washy lockdown-esque advice.
