IOM Covid removing restrictions

"Normals" are however wishing the manager would pop out and say oops sorry, but we will get back on track. 

It’s not going to happen. Not under his watch. Howard has invested everything he’s got in this battle now. I know I keep making references to Trump but there are some similarities in behaviours.

And people like Trump and Quayle never apologise and never take responsibility. It’s not even on their radar.

 I found myself today having some sympathy for David Ashcroft. Jokes aside, he actually has looked quite hellish in appearance of late. I wouldn’t mind betting that HQ has got him totally under his control and after PM called him out on the figures I bet he got hell afterwards. Every interview he gives with PM he’s relaxed, at ease, smiling (naturally) and appears to be an all right bloke. In the briefings he’s wound up like a spring, eyes bulging. Something doesn’t add up. Whatever is going on it’s as toxic as fuck. You don’t need to be ‘woke’ to know it. 
 

Chris Thomas was right, this is no place for a narcissistic government approach. HQ needs to step down. They will have contingency plans in place for this eventuality. If he doesn’t  then the government are going to lose the hearts and minds of the Island.

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

Oh it continues. You’re a poor act really. You seem to take your views (and yourself) awfully seriously considering their actual content 👍

Straight question: What have some of your previous usernames here been?

Mostly just you and people like you.

Ask to talk to the manager.

Even Lewin said this afternoon there was growing annoyance and dissatisfaction in the masses.  That was in a round about way after Dr Hewitt completely dodged it by saying she had been too busy working to notice.

You are really in the minority here.  I have said it before but I am intrigued as to which circles you move in where you are surrounded by people who share your views.

Even the nations station is noticeably turning over the last few weeks.

That’s a really good post but HQ is only half of the problem just as big an issue seems to be the tunnel vision autocratic policy and influence of the Chief Secretary and the Cabinet Office. And none of them are elected or accountable to us.

The circles Pongo moves in are exclusively government, mainly cabinet office I would say given his very blinkered pro government stances

I think Gladys that the moment they start insulting you and constantly trying to undermine your posts in a targeted way it’s a sign that you’ve probably hit the right points. I do find it hard to believe that some posters here don’t work for government the amount of subtle bullying, belittling, undermining, and outright claims of superiority over all others that seems to go on. 

I don't work for the government and I think you're a prick. 

Your thesis is flawed.

Oh I know you don’t work for government at all. I actually walked past your front door the other day. Thanks for expressing your opinion though 👍

9 likes on a controversial post and then it seems like the forum etiquette is to pile in and angrily spread lies to try to directly undermine the points made. This is a very odd forum indeed. There is a distinct whiff of establishment about it all.

Cruising and cottaging are distinct terms with different meanings. You can cruise whilst cottaging and cottage whilst cruising.

If Mad Uncle Ronnie was here..................:D

I’d get out before you’re tabbed.

So we all live without travel for the sake of those who can't have a vaccine?

But you can travel and have always been able to.

We have covered this.

Most people can't justify weeks off.

And not everyone can travel, some are reliant on people coming here which our tinpot government haven't allowed for a year now (currently at 4 refusals for compassionate visit)

You're so shockingly out of touch. And obviously you have always here tended towards polemical and extreme negative superlatives. Never a neutral or balanced perspective.

Most normals are disappointed that this outbreak is happening but also understand that it's incredibly difficult to always get everything right. Normals are not up in arms or demanding to see the manager.

Come the election - mostly the same people will be elected.

Fairest, most balanced post that I have seen on here. No doubt went down like a lead balloon though as it doesn't fit with the 'agenda'.
